Jose' Rizo's Mongorama is the love child of Jose Rizo, on-air personality at LA's KJAZZ 88.1 FM. His show, “Jose Rizo's Jazz on the Latin Side,” has been an LA favorite for over 20 years. When bandleader Rizo put together this wonderful ensemble, he brought players with expert musicianship and lots of heart. Mongorama's music is inspired by the legacy of the legendary jazz conguero Mongo Santamaria. Their music explores Mongo's charanga-jazz records from the late 50's and early 60's. They perform fresh arrangements of classic Mongo Santamaria tunes and original material inspired by this legendary conga master. Some of Mongorama participants are Grammy winners, former members of Mongo's bands or close associates. This is Latin jazz at it's highest level. The music performed is classic charanga jazz with a modern twist, satisfying both the great dancers and the very hip jazz fans. Their debut CD was nominated for a Grammy in 2012 in the "Best Tropical Latin Album" category.
