SONG OF THE DAY Manny Corchado & His Orchestra – Pow Wow


Active in the early 1960’s, New York native Manny Corchado was a Salsa percussionist and orchestra leader possibly best-known for his debut 45, Pow Wow.

Released in 1966, this crazy splash of vibrant sound became very popular in the Northern Soul scene and was backed with the sounds of Chicken and Booze on the b-side.  Interestingly enough this single opened up his one and only album which Aprovecha El Tiempo, which was released in 1966. The song credits a man called Bobby Marin, who I think accompanied the band for this track? His brother Richard Marin produced the record.

Pow Wow explodes in a brilliant burst of vast percussion, sunshine piano and bellowing horns and, true to its name, will be sure to lift soul and the spirits..This sonic feast is is celebration of sound! Check it out above.

    Great post! Was looking for information about Manny Corchado and your post is all I found so thanks!
    I love this song. The arrangements are made by Marty Sheller, who worked extensively with Fania and other legends like Mongo Santamaria.
