Mongo Santamaria ‎ “Workin’ On A Groovy Thing” 1969 US Latin Funk Jazz Soul
full
The Mongo Santamaria/Columbia formula of Top 40 tunes retrofitted with an Afro-Cuban boogaloo beat gets another hyperactive workout here. The title tune, “Spinning Wheel,” “Proud Mary,” “My Cherie Amour” and “Get Back” are among the choices here, with Sonny Fortune occasionally scorching the earth on alto sax (and probably on flute), Joe Farrell turning up on tenor, and ever-versatile Bernard “Pretty” Purdie stoking the fires alongside Mongo. Yet the band is finally beginning to show some audible weariness with the whole operation – for which one cannot blame them….by allmusic….
