Product Description


This DVD features one of the most influential infusers of Latin, Jazz, Rock and Popular music. Raised in Spanish Harlem neighborhood, William Bobo was one of the premiere Jazz & Latin percussionists of the 1960s and '70s, most recognized for playing Afro-Cuban Jazz. Bobo's artistry not only contributed to the evolution of music, but left a legacy that reaches far beyond his home neighborhood.

On this DVD, Willie Bobo: King Conga, which features two episodes of the acclaimed Ad Lib TV series, percussion icon Willie Bobo displays his imaginative sound on both the timbales and congas; a unique blend of musical styles that he described as 'the sound a Latin cat in Harlem would dig.' The episodes on this disc, hosted by pianist Phil Moore, also feature acclaimed musicians such as saxophonist Thurman Green, Saxophone, Trumpet, & Flute player Gary Bias, and percussionist Victor Pantoja, among others.

The Ad Lib Series, now available on DVD for the first time, is a collection of 46 concert TV programs presenting the best Jazz, Pop and Blues artists showcasing their skills with a Jazz flair.
