Wild Thing is the lone album released by Cuban percussionist Armando Peraza. Peraza had been playing in Cal Tjader's latin jazz band for a few years before he was signed to his label Skye Records to record his debut in 1969. The result is a unique latin jazz album with heavy congas and a groovy swing (suitable for a B-Boy environment). Highlights include "Funky Broadway", "Souled Out", and the title cut. The album was arranged and co-produced by Gary McFarland who died mysteriously in a New York bar from liquid methadone poisoning. The Skye label folded shortly after this release.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
