Gilles Peterson // Significant Album // #154

March 17, 2016

After a short break, we’re back on the countdown – kicking things off with Acid, an audacious release by Ray Barretto, incorporating elements of Afro-Latin, Salsa, Funk and Soul. You can expect to hear exceptional conga solos, passionate instrumentation of many different elements – from very bold trumpet insertions to feverish brass. The blend of all those different components, by virtue of such skillfull musicians forms the eccentric rhythm, far-out, escapist and sometimes chaotic feel which titles this 1968 album… Acid, un viaje!
