SABU'S JAZZ ESPAGNOLE


Well heres my first post and its a killer .They dont come any harder than this .This ones ripped from the japanese cd reissue on Blues Interaction.
Here are the original sleeve notes


Quite apart from the fact that it is difficult, if not impossible to please everyone, the music contained in this LP will not be appreciated by some. This, due to the mild controversy existing over the adaptation of Latin rhythms to jazz. Up to now, we have seen many attempts in this direction with some good ... and many unfortunate results. To this controversy Sabu Martinez brings his own solution, i.e., not adapting Latin rhythms to jazz or vice versa, but allowing each to retain its individual form. The results, as this LP illustrates, is a parallel flow of musical ideas, at times fusing and at others providing exciting divergent patterns.

Sabu is well schooled to accomplish his goal, having an extensive background in both the Latin and jazz idioms. He has contributed his talents to such big Latin bands as Noro Morales, Miguelito Valdes and the Lecuona Cuban Boys. His deep comprehension of jazz was gained through his association with Art Blakey, Dizzy Gillespie, and the late Charlie Parker.

Sabu's reply, when questioned about his objective in presenting JAZZ-ESPAGNOLE to the public was, "... to play the music that I like and know best; with the hope that it will also be enjoyed by the public."

We trust that you feel, as we do, that this goal he has definitely achieved.
