Eventually we will hear a lot more of Willie Bobo (in the mainstream) but until then take in the delights on this excellent CD. I came across Willie Bobo only a few days ago whilst listening to another Verve compilation and immediately got online and bought this. There are some excellent latin flavours here, but the standout track has got to be the understated and simple version of 'The Look of Love'. It is simply excellent. The CD also contains an early version of 'Evil Ways' which was later a hit for Santana, but this is definitely the better version. Overall its a real mixed bag, excellent for someone like myself taking their first dip into Willie's music. Music aside, the packaging is excellent - eclectic but in keeping with the the music. This is a treat for latin lovers, lounge fans and jazz afficianados. Excellent!
