Latin & Brazilian

Due to the Jazz Fusion being played on the floors of most upfront discotheques in the late 1970ís, D.Jís started looking for different styles to play and so we started to hear fast Mamboís from TITO PUENTE and MACHITO and tracks like MAMA GUELA by PONCHO SANCHEZ etc... In the early 1980ís a lot of the London Jazz D.Jís were mixing with World music D.J.ís who specialized in Afro Cuban and Brasilian such as DAVE HUCKER, TOMEK, JOHN ARMSTRONG and SUE STEWARD,and so a lot of knowledge was being shared. In the North of England, COLIN CURTIS had already been experimenting with Mamboís at his famous session at a club called BERLIN.

Anyone interested in the scene in the 1980ís will tell you that London Jazz D.J SYLVESTER was the master of Afro Cuban Jazz. He had records that the heaviest of collectors had never seen. By the late 1980ís there were some phenomenal record dealers turning up the most astonishing Latin Jazz (predominantly Afro Cuban), and although a lot of heavy collectors had some great rare Brasilian records in their collection, it is only fair to mention that it was FAR-OUT record company owner JOE DAVIS that started a panic-buy of rare 60ís Brasilian music on his many record buying trips to Brasil in the late 1980ís, around the time of GILLES PETERSONs classic club DINGWALLS. The search still continues.

As a footnote, I should tell you that the reason I became a Latin Percussionist in 1982 was because of the influence of what I was hearing in the Jazz Dance Clubs. Latin Jazz.
