THE MODERN SOUND OF BOBBY PAUNETTO


















Bobby Paunetto for Mardi Gras from late 60s.
Dusty Groove:
One of our favorite Latin jazz albums ever -- and a truly amazing record! Bobby Pauntteo, aka Bobby Vince Paunetto, is probably best known for his groundbreaking Latin fusion albums of the NuYorican era -- but this rare gem from the 60s shows that he was a really forward thinker, even at a younger age! The sound is incredibly hard to define -- a blend of modal jazz, Latin rhythms, and a uniquely lyrical approach to the percussion that makes the record take off to places you'd never expect. Bobby's conception is mindblowing from start to finish -- and the record's even got some wonderful tracks that feature English vocals on top of the hip vibes-driven sound of the instrumentation. A gem throughout -- and the kind of record we'll take to the grave!

Thanks a lot. I assume this is the same guy as Bobby 'Vince' Paunetto (It has to be surely!). I've been on the hunt for his 70's output for ages, but with no success. Any ideas?

Simon.

I spoke with Bobby Paunetto the other day. He is doing well and still composing, He has written and arranged tons of new material, question is, who is going to record it all?
