full….please log in first

Issued in 1974 on Fania record for Larry Harlow productions, Jazz latin funk rock at his best, heavy rhodes, organ, brass and b-boys percussion. Classic record this is the 1975 spanish press on Discophon in very nice shape. The musical direction by Randy Ortiz reminds me some Santana's works..............

Fierce and funky grooves from the glory days of the NuYorican scene! The album's a killer – filled with uptempo tracks that mix together Latin funk, jazz, and salsa – into an electrified groove that burns mightily across all the tracks! The album's got a great blend of electric keys and funky bass, layered against lots of acoustic percussion and cutting horn solos on soprano, tenor, and flute. Most tracks have vocals, and overall, the album's sort of a funkier version of the legendary Harlem River Drive album – if you can believe that! Titles include "Love Is", "NYC Blues Day", "Afro Rican Suite (parts 1 & 2)", "Mambo Rock", and "Funky Felix"..............

The Latin-Rock explosion began, when Santana first burst onto the music scene in the late sixties and early Seventies. While Santana was becoming popular in the West Coast, a young group of musicians from the Bronx in New York City wanted to build upon the Caribbean roots of Afro Cuban Jazz, Rhythm and Blues and New York City Salsa. The group is called Seguida. Seguida's music is a unique mix of funk, hip hop, rock, r&b, salsa and jazz.Building on the strong foundation laid down by the original members of Seguida...present day bandleader Steve Adorno, Record Producer Jay Henry and original founding fathers Lou Perez and Randy Ortiz, along with vocalists Lori Rose, are bringing Seguida into the future.Executive producers/recording engineers Jay Henry, Steve Adorno and Kevin Zambrana have been recording at Jay’s Native Life Studios in San Diego, California and at Kevin’s ZPI Studios in Queens, N.Y.
