Abstract Index Playlist - April 25/07

As i was saying before I so rudely interrupted myself...New York Latin Hustle is another triumph for Soul Jazz.
This comp explores the roots and branches of Cuban rhythms through the works of Puerto Rican and Dominican practicioners in NYC from the 50s to the 80s. The excellent liner notes trace the socio-economic context right back to the First World War. They weave a compelling narrative to accompany the well curated super diverse selection spread over two discs - which bounces from bomba to disco to mambo to funk. Any comp that mixes Loose Jointz into Machito is all right by me.
