JOE QUIJANO: BARRIO HÉROE

Joe Quijano and His Fantastic Conjunto Cachana: A Barrio Obrero (Cesta, 196?, The World’s Most Exciting Latin American Orchestra and Revue)

Maybe this is just me but I feel like Quijano never gets enough credit for leading a killer Latin band out of New York in the 1960s. Maybe it’s because he was never on powerhouse labels like Fania or Tico, preferring to go his own route with his own label, Cesta. Regardless, his output holds its own against the Fanias, the Cotiques, et. al. Sleep not.
