Ricardo Marrero & the Group - Algo

 

 


........................................
 
Chronique Dusty Groove :

A taste of Latin funk & soul mastery from Ricardo Marrero – the wholly excellent Taste LP from 1976 – a record as legendary for its rarity as for the slow cookers and uptempo funky gems on it! It's wonderful stuff, and the kind of record that justifiably revered by the few who've had a chance to enjoy it over the years – a record that pushes the stylistic boundaries of 70s NYC salsa with it's impeccable jazzy musicianship, spacey flourishes, sometimes salsa and sometimes soul steeped vocals, and tighter, Latin funk instrumental passages. Marrero's work on the keys is totally top notch, but The Group more than earns its capital letter status, to say the least! Titles include "Tiny", "Algo", "And We'll Make Love", "Vengo", "Get Yourself Together", "Babalonia", "My Friend" and "A Taste Of Latin". CD version includes 2 bonus tracks: alternate versions of "Algo" and "Babalonia"
