Lifted from the second volume of Jukebox Mambo (JMAN 073CD/LP/BK), Jazzman's compilation of Latin-tinged R&B, The Chanters' "She Wants to Mambo" features an exotic rumba back-beat and stop-start rhythm complete with obligatory "unghh" vocal interjections to ramp up the sex factor. Chanters lead siren Ethel Brown is in a particularly flirtatious mood as she coos and oohs back and forth with her backing singers. On the flip, another rumba-laced track from The Chanters, cut for Chuck Higgins's Combo label and featuring a male lead delivering a proud tribute to the group's hometown, the south central Los Angeles district of Watts.
