Some of the best recent Latin Jazz around – all tied up in one slick package by those crafty folks at Cubop! In a world of silly "fake" Latin remake projects, Cubop's delivered some of the best straight Latin around – taking older giants and getting them back in the studio, as well as discovering rich new talents that have been gigging around the west coast in the underground scene. This set features a handsome batch of tracks from Cubop releases – including a few that you won't find easily – and titles include "Sandunga" by Dave Pike, "Herencia" by Bobby Matos, "Mujer Chicana" by Jazz On The Latin Side All Stars, "Sandra Malandra" by Marlon Simon, "La La La" by Jack Costanzo, "Jonny's Bugalu" by Grupo X, "Obalata" by Afroshock, and "Con Mi Guaguanco" by Ray Armando.

Sessions ... CD CuBop/Ubiquity, 1980s/1990s. New Copy ...
After having such great success with their two recent Bobby Matos recordings, Cubop has gone ahead and put together this great collection of material that Bobby recorded over the past 15 years. It includes a few tracks recorded for Cubop and not released at the time (including a very funky Latin version of "Chameleon"), some that were only issued in limited editions, and a number that came out on a now-out of print release called Collage. As with all of Bobby's releases, the CD is a great batch of Latin jazz that never lets up for a minute. The band is always tight, the music's always smokin, and the choice of material is excellent. With "The Creator Has A Master Plan", "Mi Guaguanco", and "Afro Cubisimo". CD
A pretty sweet little album from Snowboy – still staying true to his Latin roots, despite an increasing public persona as an expert on all things funky! The record's nice, tight, and very jamming – a full on Latin jazz experience, with some great bass work by the legendary Nico Gomez! Other instrumentation includes Hammond, trumpet, tenor, and Fender Rhodes – and tracks include "Two For T", "Rocky & Perry", "Barrago", "Chango Moti Awa", and "Puente". CD
