Synopsis

Amazon.com
As tasty as the sizzling dish of chicken, plantains, and black beans that adorns its cover, this 18-track compilation is a serious must-own for anyone even vaguely interested in the percolating Afro-Latin sounds of the '50s, '60s, and '70s. Latin jazz giants like Machito, Tito Puente, and Willie Bobo are represented by some of their finest cuts ("Relax and Mambo," "Hong Kong Mambo," and "Fried Neckbones and Some Home Fries," respectively). Lesser-known talents like Pucho and His Latin Soul Brothers ("Heat!"), Kako & His Orchestra ("Shingaling Shingaling"), and Ocho ("Undress My Mind") damn near steal the show with their funk-inflected brilliance. --Dan Epstein

CD Reviews

"Must Have" for fans of Latin Jazz
RogerOutWest | San Mateo, CA USA | 07/22/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The ultimate test is that I never get tired of listening to this one. Just listen to the first song cranked up; "Fried Neck Bones and Some Home Fries." It's one of those tunes with some much atmosphere and spirit that you can't get it out of your head. The entire CD is a collection of similar great stuff. If you are getting started with Lating Jazz and want to know what it is all about, this is the perfect place to start. If you know all about Latin Jazz, you will hear new angles on this one. Buy it. Crank it. Play it!"

"If you want to know how latin music lovers partied in the 1960's, this is the CD to have. All the greats are on this like Joe Cuba, Mongo Santamaria, Tito Puente, Tito Rodriguez, Willie Bobo, Willie Rosario and more."Picadillo" by the legends Eddie Palmieri and Cal Tjader stills blows everybody away. The song is hardcore latin jazz at its best. If you love to cha cha, you'll go crazy for "Undress My Mind" by Ocho, and "Fried Neckbones and Home Fries" by Willie Bobo. Plenty of Mambo, Salsa, Boogaloo, Cha Cha Cha on this one. If you like to dance play this whole CD at your next party, your guests, young or old, will spin the night away!"
Awesome! salsa/mambo/watusi for those who truly neeeed it!

"The only honest comment I could make would be: "when is the next volume coming out?" A great collection of sensual, foot-tapping, hip swinging latino groove that can only open eyes to the hidden resources of great latino music not currently within the marketing scheme of major latin labels. Buy it only if you like to stay up late and have fun."
