When I first started to collect Latin Jazz as an eager young Jazz- Dance DJ, I was always looking for the fire on every record,. Playing for hardcore dancers means an inevitable focus on high tempos and rhythmic intensity. So It's been good to revisit some of those records and touch down on less frantic grooves. This selection is not without heat though it starts with some distinctly mellow flavours, there are some classics and some maybe lesser known gems. If truth be told the whole mix was inspired by Grupo Afro Cubana's "Maria" a tune which Found myself rewinding again and again. Enjoy.x
