Bobby Matos: Sessions
How's this for diversity: an English / Spanish rendition of The Rascal's '60s hit "Groovin," three different takes on Herbie Hancock's funk-jazz classic "Chameleon," and a stripped-down version (just rhythm section and voices) of Pharaoh Sanders' free-jazz epic "The Creator Has a Master Plan." Somehow, Matos - who is joined over the course of the album by some two dozen musicians from the interconnected worlds of jazz and Latin music - makes it all make sense. This is "world music" in the best and truest sense of the term.
