Friday At The Fillmore ~ “Pana” ~ Malo

Richard Bean was responsible for this great ensemble of players first hit, “Suavecito” which came with the 1972 release of their first self entitled band name album.

Malo featured a lot of talents, one of them Carlo Santana’s brother Jorge and a tremendous horn section. And of course with a lot of talents came a lot of clashes thus after it’s release many departed to play with others groups.

Their very first album put them #14 on the US top 200 & #10 on US R&B. Their next three albums through 1974 with various players were also in the US top 200.
