The Latin Soul Brothers

A few months back, I snatched up a copy of Pucho & His Latin Soul Brothers' funky classic album Yaina. Until actually purchasing the Cubop records re-issue, I hadn't heard much about the group. That being said, after one listen of the record, I was pretty much hooked. The hard-to-find album was originally released in 1971 and has an overall funky Afro-Cuban and Latin jazz vibe throughout with a focus around heavy hitting percussion grooves. Some of my favorite cuts include "Chitterlings Con Carne", "Hard Hats", "Yaina", and "Inside The Corn". Since buying this record, I've gone on to pick-up other great releases from Pucho, including "Super Freak" and "Jungle Fire!" with much satisfaction. If you enjoy that heavy conga influenced Afro-Cuban sound, than I highly recommend checking out Yaina and all of the Pucho & His Latin Soul Brothers' records. Enjoy your weekend!
