'Chino' Pozo with José Curbelo live at the 'China Doll' 1947.
Tito Rodriguez: vocal, Curbelo's father on bass.
Tito Puente: timbales, "Chino" Pozo playing bongoes.
Listen to what he does during the coro.
He definitely was "in the zone"!
These were bongoes that did not use tuning hardware, they were tuned by using a can of 'Sterno' that every conguero y bongocero brought to every gig.
