PERCUSSIONIST JOHNNY CONGA RELEASES OYE! ON HIS OWN HAND TO DRUM PRODUCTIONS!!

Brooklyn New York born and raised in the Bronx, New York City percussionist Johnny Conga here on congas, bongos timbales and vibraphone among other miscellaneous percussion instruments has released the masterful Oye! his first since the 2009 highly acclaimed Breaking Skin.

J.C. was raised on the music of Beny More and Guaguanco Mantancero (Los Munequitos) along with Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington and other jazz greats of the era! But it was Mongo Santamaria who came along "and my life changed" says J.C. "his music had the most profound affect on me as a young man..his drumming, his music was what I wanted to do and play".

In a career that spans over 40 years Johnny Conga has played with some of the best in music including Arturo Sandoval, Paquito D'Rivera, Carlos Santana, Gloria Estefan, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Willie Bobo and Mongo Santamaria to name a few!

Already receiving great response's from the Jazz and Latin Jazz communities such as Album of the Week in Latin Jazz Net.com

As J.C. says about the tunes on Oye! "I covered 6 tunes becauseh they were all classic Jazz standards, by classic Jazz musicians but I wanted to do them the way I heard them to be played not the standard way".

The result are some very hip arrangements and interpretations of Eddie Harris' Cold Duck Time, Lee Morgan's Sidewinder and the Wayne Shorter gem Footprints all with great soloing and locked in with with Johnny Conga's sensational rhythmic senses and improvisations!

J.C.'s arrangement of Tito Puente's Mambo Diablo where his soulfully rich vibraphone playing is displayed is as powerful as the original while his vibraphone playing on the tender All Of You is romantically exquisite!

J.C.'s writing shines brightly on Oye! as well with Chablue where again the soloing is masterful by all and Mambo For Tjader maybe the swinging-est  Latin Jazz tune you'll ever hear!

Johnny Conga has assembled a top notch group of musicians that deliver with supreme authority, just one session with Oye! and you to will be delivered to the incredible sound of Johnny Conga!!

Oye! is available now!!
