Juan Tizol & His Orchestra - Keynote K-635 (1946)

Juan Tizol was born in Vega Baja, Puerto Rico in 1900. He would become an integral part of Duke Ellington's orchestra and brought a Latin influence to many recordings. He is arguably best known for two of his compositions...Caravan and Perdido.

These sides were recorded in Hollywood during one of his leaves from the Ellington orchestra on April 7, 1946.
