Saffron & Latin Soul

Here is a funky Latin gem by Pucho & His Latin Soul Brothers titled "Caravan". This heavy-hitting Latin instrumental cut was featured on the group's very hard-to-find 1967 album Saffron & Soul, which was released off the known jazz label Presitge. Sweater Funk's DJ Jacob Pena first introduced me to this specific record by Pucho when he dropped a track off this record when he was guest deejaying last month's SFJAZZ Hotplate night. His original version was actually signed by Henry "Pucho" Brown himself! After getting a hold a digital version of the album, the vinyl version has easily climbed to the top of my wishlist. After one listen, I wouldn't be surprised if many of you are feeling the same way. Enjoy!
