ROBIN JONES SEVEN - EL MAJA














Robin Jones for Apollo Sound from 1972.
Robin Jones-Drums,Percussion;Tony Uter:Congas;Simon Morton-Bongos;Olaf Vas-Sax,Flute;Roy Edwards-Trumpet;John Porter-Keyboards;Percy Borthwick-Bass.
Another latin library banger from the wonderful Robin Jones.
The big cuts spinnin' out the jazz dancers back in the day were "Atlas" and "El Maja" and you can hear that the Jones seven had assimilated much of the boogaloo and funk influences from Mighty Mongo's band of the time.
As you can probably guess this one's yet another
All Killer No Filler

@Simon atlas is one of those tracks that's been comped a lot over the years... One of those London jazz dance classics as blue note says
