Spanish Grease" the original Willie Bobo penned song with its quajira refrain and soulful interplay of English and Spanish, "Hurt So Bad" is one of the few times the recreation of a pop standard works it's much better than Little Anthony and The Imperials hit verson of the times, well that and "It's not Unusual" where Bobo takes a rare lead vocal complete with thick accent English It is a fun LP, full of latin jazz as it was and even where it shouldn't have been. an original blend of cultures on wax that sounds as fresh today as yesterday. For latin jazz affionados, a classic timbale band leader .. for a listen to a sound that influenced the future of hybrid Latin Jazz and Soul and Rock
