Pucho And His Latin Soul Brothers: Mucho Pucho

Glenn Astarita By

Celebrate the New Year with Henry “Pucho” Brown and his Latin Soul Brothers. “Pucho” is the leader of this date and mans the timbales as well. Opening with “The Latin Soul Brothers” we witness some hip rap-ster dialogue from special guest McBaBee Power. New to this reviewers ears is the fusion of rap and Latin music. Not a bad concept I suppose. “The Latin Soul Brothers” paves the way for a recording that while not a monumental artistic success succeeds in getting you and a partner of choice to shake your collective bootie’s! “Theme from Mission Impossible” is given the Latin treatment with some jazzy vibes from special guest Joe Locke. Locke is a fine jazz musician in his own right and compliments the band’s overall vibrant, Latin-funk feel. Nice renditions of Benny Golson’s “Blues March” and Preston Foster’s “Got My Mojo Workin”. All in all the Latin Soul Brothers bring good-natured fun and well-rehearsed charts to the table. Nice work guys.
