Complete your Pacheco Y Su Charanga collection. This is Pachecos 2nd LP recorded with his own orchestra, and is 1 heavy hitter of an LP.

Moreover, "Pacheco y Su Charanga" was the first Latin band to headline the Apollo Theater in New York City in 1962 and 1963. Pacheco's career as a musician reached its peak in 1964, when he joined forces with Jerry Masucci to create Fania Records, of which Pacheco was the CEO, creative director, and musical producer. The album featured Pete "El Conde" Rodriguez on vocals and a switch from the Charanga to the smaller-format Conjunto style. This was the first of many recordings with the "compadres" (literally, "godfathers"), and the beginning of a long friendship and working relationship between Pacheco and Rodriguez. Together, they recorded Los Compadres (1970), Perfecta Combinación (Perfect Combination) (1971), Tres de Café y Dos de Azúcar (Three Parts Coffee and Two Parts Sugar) (1973) and many other successful albums.

Escuchar "Pacheco y su Charanga" tantos años después de su lanzamiento original es una experiencia emotiva, considerando la ilustre carrera que el maestro Pacheco viviría en las siguientes décadas. Stemming from an idea that originated at the Manana Festival in Santiago de Cuba two years ago, Marquez fuses his love for dynamic Afro-Cuban and Caribbean flavors on SANTIAGO SESSIONS with classic Fania tracks from icons such as Hector Lavoe, Ray Barretto, Tito Puente and Celia Cruz.
