The Afro-Cuban Messengers

It's great that it's finally Friday, as I'm sure all of you will agree. Time to relax and catch up on some much needed rest. Anyways, I thought I would end the week with a funky Afro-Cuban jazz cut from Art Blakey titled "No Hay Problema". This Latin-flavoured track was originally released on the 1960 French soundtrack Les Liaisons Dangereuses. Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers were responsible for the film's entire soundtrack and features a few versions of the "No Hay Problema" song. The most notable version of the song, featured below, was also included on the first volume of the incredible compilation series Mojo Club Presents Dancefloor Jazz. Overall, it's a great track that goes nicely with all those refreshing Happy Hour cocktails. Enjoy!
