A smoking bit of Latin Soul from pianist Sonny Bravo – one of the few albums of its type ever issued on Columbia Records, but a classic cooker that easily matches the best on Fania or Tico from the 60s! Sonny's probably better known for his later work as an arranger, but here he's the ... read moreCD
