Irakere "Live In Sweden" LP 1980

'Irakere' recorded LIVE in Sweden 1980
vinyl LP

At this point D'Rivera had already defected to the U.S. but the rest of the band remained together. Arturo Sandoval besides playing Trumpet, also takes a solo on valve Trombone.
This still had 'Jorge "El Nino" Alfonso' on 5 Congas. In my opinion, the best Cuban Conguero playing in the "contemporary" style. Several years later he died.
