Nu Yorica Roots!

First off, Happy Cinco De Mayo! I don't have a Mexican song for you, however I am going to keep it very Latin. Here is just a couple of the many great tracks off of the Soul Jazz released compilation titled "Nu Yorica Roots!". This compilation which was released back in 2000, features some of the best Latin music to come out of New York in the 1960's. The compilation includes classic cuts from some of the best Latin artists from that period like Sabu Martinez, Tito Puente, Ray Berretto, Tito Rodriguez, Machito, Joe Cuba and many more. I was very excited to find a used copy of this record recently as it's become one of the harder to find compilations from Soul Jazz. I noticed on a couple of record shop sites that the record looks to be reissued again sometime in the near future. Until then, enjoy!
