Is “Put-Da-Din” the Latin American equivalent of “Je T’Aime Moi Non Plus”? Well, probably not, but maybe it could be. The big take-away here is that this is one of the best records Joe Cuba ever made, and I think it was the last to be credited to his Sextet.  The track “Can You Feel It?” also has an amazing soul vocal on it and a well thought-out dialog between the spoken narration, with romantic rememberances of “el barrio” that would make Lin-Manuel Miranda blush, immediately followed by the thoughts of somehow who “feels it, in a different way”. Brilliant stuff. And like always, no horns here, so that may help draw the reed- or brass-averse into this genre.
