Conjunto Chappotín - Perlas del Son,Areito MP3/Flac

Conjunto Chappottín and his Stars was founded in 1950: African

Cuban tres-guitarist, composer and bandleader, Arsenio Rodriguez,

known as el Ciego Maravilloso, or the Marvelous Blind One, had settled

in New York to recover his vision. He decided from there that his All Stars

band, which he left in Cuba during his 1948 move to New York, should be

transferred into the professional care of his first trumpetist, Felix Chappottín.

From that moment, the original Arsenio Rodriguez All Stars band was

transformed into Conjunto Chappottín y sus Estrellas. The group was Led by

Felix Chappottín with Luis (Lili) Martinez Grinan as the arranger and Miguelito

Cuni the lead singer. Under the leadership of Felix Chappottín, only to be

compared with Louis Satchmo Armstrong, the band rose to international

fame, moving and amusing dancers in different parts of the world.

We already had some of their work here.

I bought this lp from a friend who used to collect Cuban music with passion.

One day when he was in need of money, he sold me his entire collection

with the idea to buy it back some other time. Unfortunately Dirk has left

this world a couple of years ago. I am taking care of the music, keeping it

together and sharing some of it with you, like today. Hope U like.

I found that the same lp was also released with

a different cover, as shown in small picture,

don't know which one was the original.
