Mongo Santamaría

Ramón "Mongo" Santamaría Rodríguez (April 7, 1917, in Havana, Cuba – February 1, 2003 in Miami, Florida) was a rumba quinto master and an Afro-Cuban Latin jazz percussionist. He is most famous for being the composer of the jazz standard "Afro Blue," recorded by John Coltrane among others. In 1950 he moved to New York where he played with Perez Prado, Tito Puente, Cal Tjader, Fania All Stars, etc. He was an integral figure in the fusion of Afro-Cuban rhythms with R&B and soul, paving the way for the boogaloo era of the late 1960s. His 1963 hit rendition of Herbie Hancock's "Watermelon Man" was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998. more »

With all my heart, I love you baby.
Stay with me, and you will see my arms will hold you, baby.
Never leave, 'cause I believe I'm in love.

Sweet love hear me callin' out your name.
I feel no shame; I'm in love.
Sweet love, don't you ever go away.
It'll always be this way.

Your heart has called me closer to you.
I will be all that you need.
Just trust in what we're feeling.
Never leave, 'cause baby, I believe
In this love.

Sweet love hear me callin' out your name.
I feel no shame; I'm in love.
Sweet love, don't you ever go away.
It'll always be this way.

There's no stronger love in this world, Oh, baby, no.
You're my man;  I'm your girl.
I'll never go.  Wait and see, can't be wrong.
Don't you know this is where you belong?

How sweet this dream, how lovely, baby.
Stay right here, never fear.
I will be all that you need.
Never leave, 'cause baby, I believe
In this love.

Sweet love hear me callin' out your name.
I feel no shame; I'm in love.
Sweet love, don't you ever go away.
It'll always be this way.
