Various : Hi-Hat Vol 2: Essential Cuban, Brazilian, Hard Bop + Fusion

[B]7/10[/B] or[B] -10[/B], depending on your point of view...

Or, in other words, some jazz. On the plus side, this is mad, effervescent Latin jazz fusion to dance to, not stroke one’s goatee to. There’s even a step: the Cockroach Stomp. Splat! Cool!

Necessary or evil? Like the excellent Soul Jazz label’s early funk, soul and reggae reissues, this fills a tiny weird niche brilliantly. Otherwise, it’s, y’know, scary jazz.7/10 or -10, depending on your point of view…
