“Vacation At The Concord” Lead Book Transcription By Machito


Digital Download

Machito’s band, Machito and his Afro-Cubans, holds great significance for Latin trumpet playing and the development of Latin jazz. Machito, also known as Francisco “Machito” Grillo, was a renowned bandleader and singer who played a significant role in the development of Afro-Cuban jazz and Latin music. His band, Machito and his Afro-Cubans, released several albums that showcased their fusion of Afro-Cuban rhythms with jazz.

These books each include the full lead trumpet part, plus any trumpet solos featured in the tunes. You can follow along with the original albums and hear exactly how they are meant to be played.

Below you will find a full writeup on the album, plus the song list. To the left, you can find some samples, and above you can grab an immediate digital download.

A decade after Afro-Cuban rhythms set the jazz world on fire, we find the maestro playing the Concord, a popular lakeside resort 90 miles north of New York City. So it is a “tourist” album, probably given away or sold as a souvenir. The liners and photos tell as much about where to find swimming director Buster Crabbe as Machito. For popular Latin, it has the top standards, as well as a few Machito surprises. The former includes obligatory covers of Perez Prado’s smashes “Guaglione” and “Patricia,” plus cha cha cha counterparts “Cocktails for Two” and “Rico Vacilon.” Surprises include Johnny Conquet’s “Estacy” and Italian-Chipmunks-bandleader Renato Corasone’s “Torero.” One title is particularly Afro-Cuban, “El Aji Caribe.” It is an unusual, but INCREDIBLE album, even for Machito.
