This first Mission Bay Mambo Orchestra album is HERE! With its inception in 2015, the Mambo Orchestra has been growing into an exciting ensemble performing a little bit of everything: the music of Cuba, Puerto Rico, Latin America and the U.S. We hope you enjoy this recording featuring everything from Tito Puente to Ray Charles!
All tracks were recorded at Mission Bay’s yearly jazz concert “Jazz On The Green.” On this occasion we were lucky to be joined by professional trumpeter and MBHS alum Brad Steinwehe. He graciously donated his skill to make this album soar!
