In addition to Puente, a lot of popular crossover Latin bandleaders - Noro Morales, Machito, Jack Costanzo, Joe Loco, Alfredito coming immediately to mind - mixed in moody jungle riffs, along with "Oriental" and Middle Eastern themes, with their repertoire of mambos, montunos and Latin jazz jams. It's one of the most interesting permutations of post-War exotica.

Puente's early Tico recordings are rife with exotic motifs and are essential as well.
