Slammin Latin from Snowboy – a great illustration of his mighty powers on this side of the groove – served up here by a host of top-notch players! Although a contemporary
set from the UK, the album's got plenty of sounds that are right at home in the US Latin scene of the 60s and 70s – classic instrumentation, perfect production, and a really stripped-down sound that you'd be hard pressed to find in most contemporary
Latin albums! Instrumentation includes lots of percussion from Snowboy – plus killer Fender Rhodes and Hammond from Neil Angilley, bass from Nico Gomez, tenor, trumpet, and trombone – plus extra percussion too. There's a very hard edge to most tracks – descarga, informed with an undercurrent of funk – and although there's some chorus vocals on the record, most of the focus is on the instrumentation. Titles include "Snowboy's Special", "Mi China", "Six For Eight", "Cubano Blues", "Gijon", "Bailalo", and "Que Viva Para Siempre".
