Subtitled: Swingin' Mambos, Soulful Salsa And Funky Rhythms From The Hip Latin Dancefloors Of New York City. 2008 release. Take tropical rhythms from South America, mix them up with jazz and soul from North America, and the result is a fiery, vibrant musical mix that's at once exciting, passionate and irresistibly danceable. Here's a selection of the finest Latin music that was recorded in the U.S. from the '50s to the '70s, made by American Latinos and destined for the dancefloor. This album takes in the sounds that were coming out of the New York Latin clubs -- mixing up jazz, soul, funk and R&B with driving, hypnotic and sexy Latin rhythms. Drawn from the vaults of Fania, the most prominent Latin record company of all time, Jazzman Records has spent many years listening and dancing before finally selecting these 18 songs from the many thousands available in the huge Fania catalog. And so here it is -- the best Latin sounds from the richest period in Latin music -- taking in hard Latin jazz, sultry Latin soul and bangin' Latin funk -- songs that are as relevant today as they were when they were first recorded, and songs that still work their magic on the dancefloor. All tracks fully licensed and restored from their original sources. Includes a 12-page color booklet with in-depth liner notes, artist photos & 7" label and LP scans. Artists include: Noro Morales, Eddie Palmieri & Cal Tjader, Joe Bataan, Mauricio Smith, Tito Puente, George Guzman, Bobby Valentin, Harvey Averne, Pete Rodriguez, Ray Barretto, La Lupe, Chollo, Al Escobar, The Latinaires, and Mongo Santamaria.
