Description

Over the course of his career, Ray Barretto had worked alongside Dizzy Gillespie, Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Wes Montgomery, and even the Bee Gees among others, earned a legendary reputation among the jazz music scene, and the title of Godfather of Latin Jazz. When one listens to his 1968 album Acid it’s not hard to understand why. The album features eight selections of Barretto’s finest, which formed a unique hybrid of jazz and Latin sounds, from the frantic salsa of “El Nuevo Barretto”, to soul-crossover tracks like “A Deeper Shade Of Soul” or “Teacher Of Love.” The song “Mercy, Mercy, Baby” would also be notably sampled on Group Home’s remix of “Good Life” by Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth in 1991. A high reccomendation for fans and collectors of the classic Latin sounds of the 60s.
