Manny Oquendo (born 1-Jan-1931) is a Latin/American percussionist, influenced by Cuban drumming. He grew up in New York and worked in the bands of Eddie Palmieri's tropical and Latin Jazz ensembles which developed what was called the NYC Mozambique style rhythm, originally created by master Cuban percussionist, Pedro Izquierdo, aka 'Pello el Afrokan' in Havana. His own group Conjunto Libre, later simply Libre, had a hit with Little Sunflower.

This excellent compilation of the top New York salsa bands of the '70s includes some of the material (originally recorded for the Salsoul Records) that made the band a household name. The "modernized" conjunto format shows the ability of bandleaders Manny Oquendo and Andy González pushing this outfit with unparalleled skill, careful choice of material, and talented sidemen with incredible improvisational skills.

Another excellent effort by Conjunto Libre; the band keeps stretching out of their conjunto format into a broader canvas. Que Humanidad" is a highly charged tune, as the band's powerful rhythm section is quite stimulating. Estoy Como Nunca" and "Llora Timbero" are quite interesting performances; these tunes seemingly never out of steam, as they are continuously recorded by other bands. Freddie Hubbard's "Little Sunflower" receives the Libre treatment, and it is done with hefty aplomb, as well as the plena standard "Elena, Elena
