VA - Boogaloo Pow Wow: Dancefloor Rendez-Vous In Young Nuyorica

While we've heard a few notable Nuyorican comps in the last year (The Soul Of Spanish Harlem, and Fania's killer Joe Bataan anthology Under The Streetlamps), Honest Jon's has truly taken things to the next level with Boogaloo Pow Wow. Heavy grooves unite a varied range of tracks, with traditional Afro-Cuban forms getting a funky backbeat here and there, and even some serious jazz blowing to remind you that this is, after all, New York. It's a serious dance party, from the super-cool sunglasses and satin shirt moves of Willie Rosario to the bizarro fusion of Diane & Carole's "Feelin' The Pain"--like someone accidentally brought a guiro to a Brill Building girl-group session.
