Some of the tightest funky 70s jamming ever from Ray & His Musical Court, a group that perfectly fuses JB
funk with beat-heavy Afro-Cuban groove! Ray & co. are one of the more obscure funky combos of the era, and it's a damn shame, because the group's tight-as-can-be amalgam of JB
's style horn riffing and thumping Afro-Cuban percussion is some of the absolute best of its kind. This group seriously smokes any of the current funk bands on the road! Multi-instrumentalist Ray Fernandez got his start largely as a percussionist, and worked with titans like Mongo Santamaria and Bud Powell before fronting his own group. On these sessions Ray wrote, produced, played "organ flute" and provided some vocals in a large group that includes three trumpets, bass clarinet, sax, two drummers, congas, electric bass, and a line of mostly Spanish vocalists. Amazing 70s super funk with a very proud Latin edge! 22 tracks running well north of the hour mark: "Cookie Crumbs", "Soul Freedom", "El Alacarn", "El Bimbo", "Brazil", "Sunny", "Tu Mirar", "Chega Mais, "More More More", and tons more!
