EDITORS’ NOTES

A mix of previously unreleased heat and iconic beats from the maestro of extra-juicy Latin jazz. For this comp, Willie Bobo’s wife and son dug through the archives to find a sequence of rare nuggets that convey the percussionist’s timelessly cool fusion of jazz, funk, and salsa. There’s no better way to visit the man who bridged the sidewalk energy of Spanish Harlem to the sumptuous groove of West Coast jazz.
