Nueva Vision

Nueva Vision
Latin jazz and Soul from the Cuban Label EGREM / AREITO 1971-1989

Stunning compilation from a way back now. No real favourites, they all hit the high notes. 

Artists include ;

Chucho Valdes
Grupo Tema IV
Emiliano Salvador
Orchestra Los Van Van
C.I.V Jefatura de Retaguardia
Ricardo Eddy Martinez y Expresso Ritmico
Orquestra Maravillas de Florida
Chucho Valdes y su Quinteto

Pushed, Soy Cubano by Omara Portuondo is the bomb. Layer upon layer of heavy latin percussion and big brass mash runs through the whole thing.
