Ritmo Calipso - Winsop (Tropical jazz from Panama, 60s?)

(Ecoll 001).

Another mysterious 7 inch... Found in Colombia but including 2 nice jazzy calypsos sounding like caribbean 60s. It might be a colombian bootleg, as they regularly did with foreign productions, sometimes changing name to avoid any traceability or just because it was unknown. I guess the original track comes from Panama, as Ecoll label released another miscredited 7 inch from De Briano with the Alonso Wilson Quintet (originally on AWB from Panama, check Musica del Alma here).

The A side is sung in english, B side in spanish, but both are really fresh and the singer reminds the smooth voice of Larry Francia, who sung with Ray Perez y sus Kenyas.
