The second in Jazz Room's occasional pure Latin releases, this underground masterpiece first emerged in 1980 and is an outstanding example of the classic era Nu Yorican El Barrio underground sound! If you dig the Tata Vasquez LP on Jazz Room then this is for you.

Featuring the Afro-Cubano salsero jazz heavyweights of the day, including Chocolate Armenteros, Jose Mangual, Mauricio Smith, and Orestes Vilato. It also features a huge seven man percussion section, which really blasts out the Afro-Latin message. A part of the historic Afro-Cuban music journey from the hinterlands of Cuba, via Havana and eventually arriving in jazz age New York, it is a welcome addition to the Jazz Room catalog (as well as being one of the Jazz Room head honcho's favorite albums).
