Press Release :
Take tropical rhythms from the Caribbean and South America, mix them with North American jazz and soul, and the result is a fiery, vibrant musical mix that’s at once exciting, passionate and irresistibly danceable. Here’s a selection of the finest Latin music that was recorded in the US from the ‘50s to the ‘70s, made by Latinos and destined for the dancefloor.

This album takes in the sounds that were coming out of the New York clubs - mixing up jazz, soul, funk and R&B with driving, hypnotic and sexy Latin rhythms. Drawn from the vaults of Fania, the most prominent Latin record company of all time, we’ve chosen spent many years listening and dancing before finally selecting these 18 songs from the many thousands available in the huge Fania catalogue.

And so we have it - the best Latin sounds from the richest period in Latin music - taking in firey latin jazz, sultry latin soul and driving latin funk - songs that are as relevant today as they were when they were first recorded, and songs that still work their magic on the dancefloor!
