#13 Machito, "Kenya"
Like the Miles Davis entry before, this album feels cut short by its time. Each track is single-lengthen, coming in at 3 minutes or less. They're all lively, fun numbers that also kind of feel anonymous in overall tone; more like something played in the background of a party than something to draw people specifically in. That being said, it was fun, and I did enjoy it. The tone just didn't vary all that much and the music didn't pull me in as much as some of the other music on this list did. Worth hearing because of the joy, just perhaps not as well remembered.
