Bassist, percussionist and arranger Pantaleón Perez Prado (1928-83) the younger brother of the famous Dámaso Perez Prado (King of Mambo) arrived in Europe in the 1950s, whereupon he set about pursuing his musical career in mambo. In the early 1970s, Pantaleón settled in Milan where he recorded two LPs, Escandalo! (1972) and Perez Prado - Don Alfio (1973), both featuring a powerful Big Funk Band sound and both still considered to be two incredible musical gems. After the sunset of mambo fever, Pantaleón was able to reveal a funky attitude that comes out in these amazing recordings.
