The “The Exotic Suite of the Americas” and “Voodoo Suite” are the defining moments in Prado’s long career as ‘King Of The Mambo’. Though the “Voodoo Suite”, with its larger-than-life orchestra, six saxophones, three trombones, seven drummers, six trumpets, and more, was equal parts a Latin dance band and a jazz orchestra, its tight charts by Shorty Rogers made it a dramatic beast to wrestle and a sublime one to listen to. On “The Exotic Suite of the Americas”, Prado took a decidedly more laid-back approach and made his score more cinematic in scope and tone.
