Excellent (and very rare) boogaloo album by Orchestra Kool! The group has a rough hewn, tightly walloping feel that we totally love – with English vocals on some tunes and Spanish on others – with killer rhythms and some jazzy reed work. The album includes lots of hard stompin' boogaloo tracks, with a great vibe, and some groovier moments – with call and response vocals that bring in a kinship to some of the raw soul of the time! The titles include "Boogaloo Baby", "Orchestra Kool", "Ritmo Kool", and "Kool Heat" – kind of giving you an idea of the sort of swingin' boogaloo sound – plus "Guapacha", "Conversar", "Tira Jala" and "Fantasy".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
