"Soul Jazz Records are reissuing three albums by Ocho, one of the defining bands of the Latin New York Funk sound. Led by Chico Mendoza, Ocho have been featured heavily in Soul Jazz Records Nu Yorica series and these reissues are the three definitive albums by the group. Along with other artists such as Ray Barretto, Eddie Palmieri, Joe Bataan and Tito Puente, Ocho mixed Latin, funk and jazz in equal measures. The music of Ocho has never been fully available in this country before and Soul Jazz Records are releasing them in their entirety for the first time. These releases come on CD and limited edition vinyl (with plastic sleeve). Ocho 1 includes 'Coco May May' as featured on Nu Yorica." Recorded in NYC, 1973.
