This rare album is the last one of a serie of three recorded by OCHO, a legendary and seminal group in the NuYorican "latin jazz" scene of the early 70s. OCHO's leader and arranger, CHICO MENDOZA, produced an astonishing blend of soul, funk, Latin, jazz, and other styles mixed all together. The "groove" is irresistible! (CB) ----------- ALBUM REVIEW This is the third and toughest to find album recorded by the legendary Latin group OCHO, from the early 70s. The repertoire brings a Latin version of James Brown's "Hot Pants Road" - done in a heavy funky style - and other nice cuts include "Guaguanco Rumbero", "Ritmo De Pollos", and "Anibondad", all Latin numbers with a groovy sound that was bursting out of the Latin "nuyorican" scene during the 70s.
