Written for Ken Hanna's own band and recorded in 1955, the composer restyled it as a feature for the Kenton ensemble's conga player, Ramon Lopez. A recording from August 13, 1971 was issued on Creative World in quadraphonic sound and is spectacular, but this performance is even more exciting. Unfortunately, it was not recorded very well and the tapes were almost scrapped, hence a lower rating than might have been awarded. Shearer, Brown, Torres and Vax get to show off.
