“The Venezuela Joropo” is an album of latin influenced jazz from 1968 by vibist and jazz artist Victor Feldman featuring Dennis Budimir, Larry Bunker, Monty Budwig, and Emil Richards.
The typical Venezuelan ensemble of Spanish harp, Cuatro (a small four-string guitar) and Maracas, does not at first glance appear to lend itself to easy assimilation with jazz. It is a real tribute to the imagination and good taste of Victor Feldman that this first attempt should be musically such a success. LP release only.
