Product Description

Product Description

Following our best-selling BGT Jazz, Nascente once again raid the vaults of Blue Note records, this time for a selection of seminal Latin Jazz
moments.

Latin rhythms are interwoven through the history of jazz and here we collect together some of the finest moments from the Blue Note Records catalogue showing influences from Cuba and Puerto Rico, via an imagined Mexican past and a very real Brazilian present.

Afro-Cuban fusions were in demand on jazz records from the 1950s to the early 60s and on disc one Afro Cuban roots we include stone-cold
killers from Sabu Martinez, Donald Byrd, Horace Parlan, The Jazz Crusaders, Gerald Wilson & many others.
The next big Latin wave to hit jazz was from Brazil and disc two Bossa Nova USA features some of the big bossa jazz cuts of the 60s from the
likes of Charlie Rouse, Hank Mobley, Ike Quebec and the Julian Cannonball Adderley featuring the legendary Sergio Mendes Bossa Rio Sextet.

Disc three Fusions Latino Con Soul covers everything else so here we have Kenny Burrell featuring Stanley Turrentine and percussionist Ray
Barretto, Big John Patton, Lonnie Smith and Candido s original 60s version of his anthem 1000 Finger Man .

THIS WELL PRESENTED VARIED COMPILATION IS VERY INTERESTING AND PROVIDES DIFFERENT TEMPO FOR WHATEVER MOOD YOU MIGHT BE IN. I HAVE TOO MANY FAVOURITES TO START LISTING. MAY I IN FACT USE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO THANK THE TEAM BEHIND THE BEGINNERS GUIDE COLLECTIONS BECAUSE I HAVE HAD NOTHING BUT ABSOLUTE SATISFACTION FROM ALL MY AUDIO ACQUISITIONS. WORTH EVERY PENNY PAID.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't be put off! 25 Sep 2013

This album will not encourage anyone new to Latin jazz. It's a hash of music that only hints at latin. Look elsewhere, L J is fantastic for those with rythmn in their bones but this collection has none. I would never say rip off, but the compilers are way off the track.
