4.80 6

Groovy boogaloo from late 60s Mexico – an album that's quite different than US sets of this nature! The rhythms definitely show a Latin Soul influence, but the overall execution is in a wider 60s groovy mode overall – with bits of mod jazz, soul piano, and more – all filtered beautifully into some very dynamic grooves! Bert's music has a style that's almost like some of the best Verve sides of the 60s – particularly those with a Latin and jazz crossover blend – and although there's some vocals on the record, the main focus is clearly the instrumental groovings of the group. Piano is especially nice, and comes across with some Ramsey Lewis-ish elements that really keeps things rolling and rollicking – and titles include "Zulianita", "Rosa Rosita", "Do The Boogaloo", "Oh Yeah", "Pete's Boogaloo", and "Manana Sera". (Comes a great little LP style sleeve!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
