Conguero Poncho Sanchez grew up on salsa and Latin jazz, but his musical influences also included large doses of Stax and Muscle Shoals R&B. So for his latest album, he decided to pay tribute to both traditions: the result is a strange but seriously fun jumble of soul, salsa, son and jazz. Gratefully, he generally avoids trying to fuse them all into a single hybrid musical style; instead, he jumps from one to the other. The album opens and closes with classic-style soul songs: "Raise Your Hand" and "Knock on Wood," both featuring singer Eddie Floyd, organist Booker T. Jones, and guitarist Steve Cropper. In between is a range of material that includes a brilliant straight-ahead salsa number featuring Andy Monta¤ez titled "El Agua de Belen," the gorgeous "Amor con Amor," a very fine Maceo Parker showcase titled "Maceo's House" (which actually does blend soul and Latin influences, and carries it off nicely) and a couple of less compelling numbers as well. But even the nice-but-not-earthshaking "Gestation" offers plenty of fun, and there really is not a single track on this album that is anything less than thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended overall. ~ Rick Anderson
Professional Reviews
Down Beat (p.p.72) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Sanchez puts vintage soul on the bill, with breezy spins through a pair of vintage Stax-Volt gems that open and close the disc."
JazzTimes (p.108) - "[T]he old hits are still worthy of another spin, beginning with the album's title track, which features Floyd, Jones and Cropper joyously evoking the sound of Stax Records while collaborating with Sanchez's Latin-jazz ensemble."
