Melissa You can't NOT dance to some of these songs, even if "dance" happens wildly in your head. These gems - Afro-Cuban, Latin and Caribbean rhythms - are *sexy* as hell.

about

A stunning collection that sheds light on a pivotal yet totally overlooked area of American music - the influence of Afro-Cuban and Latin rhythms on R&B and Jazz during the mid-20th century.

Following up on the success of our Jukebox Jam album of vintage juke joint and bar room sounds, compiler and DJ Liam Large digs even deeper to put together a diverse set of dynamite R&B sides, all built around Afro-Cuban, Latin and Caribbean rhythms.

The Blues and it's populist sister Rhythm & Blues have been visited and revisited 100s of times on 1000s of comps, but the 'Spanish Tinge' has been completely overlooked, perhaps even scorned by purists.

This album stands out from the rest and the result is a set which sounds stunningly fresh and unique - a remarkable achievement itself given that the actual songs average at around 60 years old.

Jukebox Mambo showcases an experimental era which continues to inform today's music, with Afro-Latin rhythms now completely assimilated into modern pop.

The overtly sensual, exotic feel of many of these songs also continues to find an echo in modern music, and Jukebox Mambo provides a thrilling, sensual listening experience.

Lovingly compiled, expertly annotated, with music as interesting as it is stimulating and arresting, Jukebox Mambo is a new and exciting look at the era and music which changed history!
