The cover alone should be enough to tell you this is a cooker – as Cortijo and Kako go head to head on heavy percussion, working a heavy traditional groove despite the later date of the album! Rhythms are strongly in the plena and bomba modes – with timbales and congas dominating, as well as plenty of chorus vocals from Chivirico Davila, Gilberto Cruz, and Ismael Rivera – a great lineup who really help the record cook! The album's a great lost groover from the tail end of the 60s – and titles include "Chiviriquiton", "Yo No Bailo Con Juana", "Maria Teresa", "Compay Sapo", "Alegria Bomba Es", and "Que Le Paso".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

CuBop/Ubiquity, 1999. New Copy
A killer album of Latin jazz tracks! This is most likely the best album that Johnny Blas has cut for the Cubop label – and it's stone solid all the way through. Johnny's playing here with his new band – and most of the tracks have a nice stripped-down lineup that features piano, conga ... CD
