There'll be more fireworks than usual this year as Nov 5th sees the release of 'Jukebox Mambo', our new compilation of vintage Rumba Blues and Mambo R&B crossover from the 1950s. We're holding a big album launch party / warehouse fiesta on Sat. Nov 10th with 4 live acts, guest DJ's and all sorts..
To get you in the mood, here's a selection that taps into the sound of the LP and the night - Blues with a Rumba beat, Mambo tie-ins and even some straight Afro-Cuban sounds, along with a little Caribbean Calypso and Pachuco Bop!
Gilles was very kind enough to invite me onto his show this Saturday just gone, we had a good chat about Jazzman etc, and played some music from the Spiritual Jazz 3 album, the forthcoming That's Why album and a few soul 45s. Be quick if you want to listen, expires on 15 Sept 2012!
