A stunning collection that sheds light on a pivotal yet totally overlooked area of American music -- the influence of Afro-Cuban and Latin rhythms on R&B and jazz during the mid-20th century. Following up on the success of Jazzman Records' Jukebox Jam album of vintage juke joint and bar room sounds, compiler and DJ Liam Large digs even deeper to put together a diverse set of dynamite R&B sides, all built around Afro-Cuban, Latin, and Caribbean rhythms. The blues and its populist sister rhythm and blues have been visited and revisited hundreds of times on thousands of comps, but the "Spanish Tinge" has been completely overlooked, perhaps even scorned by purists. This album stands out from the rest and the result is a set which sounds stunningly fresh and unique -- a remarkable achievement itself given that the actual songs average at around 60 years old. Jukebox Mambo showcases an experimental era which continues to inform today's music, with Afro-Latin rhythms now completely assimilated into modern pop. The overtly sensual, exotic feel of many of these songs also continues to find an echo in modern music, and Jukebox Mambo provides a thrilling, sensual listening experience. Also included are detailed, illustrated liner notes which unveil the largely untold story of how Afro-Latin influences gradually affected black American music during the 20th century, and in turn how this filtered into and transformed modern music thereafter. Lovingly compiled, expertly annotated, with music as interesting as it is stimulating and arresting, Jukebox Mambo is a new and exciting look at the era and music which changed history. Includes a 16-page color CD booklet with in-depth liner notes, 45 label scans and previously-unpublished photographs.
