Classic Latin, in the hands of Joe Claussell – served up here in a mighty mix that's heavy on roots, but also has an ear for the future as well! The building blocks of the set come from the classic catalog of Fania Records – older tracks from the 60s and 70s that are heavy on the rawer side of the Afro Cuban spectrum – mixed by Joe with slight elements in the background that really link together the numbers wonderfully – especially on some of the between-the-cuts soundscapes, and light use of strings that Claussell uses to create this pan-Latin sort of space! Core tunes include "Mambo Mongo" by Mongo Santamaria, "Chango" by Celia Cruz, "Lucumi" by Eddie Palmieri, "Siembra" by Willie Colon, "Funk Down" by Mongo Santamaria, and "Me Voy Ahora" by Ismael Miranda – but almost all of these are first reworked into new mixes by Joe, then integrated into a cool larger mix too. And as a bonus, CD2 features 9 core singles – all remixed by Joe outside of the larger 72 minute mix on CD1!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

One of our favorite volumes in this now-legendary series – a set of grooves that runs from 70s electric back to 60s groovy – with plenty of space in between! There's a number of cuts on here that feel like they were lifted from lost CTI sessions of the 70s, thanks to warm keyboards and ... CD
