Description

Take tropical rhythms from South America, mix them up jazz and soul from North America, and the result is a fiery, vibrant musical mix that's at once exciting, passionate and irresistibly danceable. 

Here's a selection of the finest Latin music that was recorded in the US from the '50s to the '70s, made by American Latinos and destined for the dancefloor.

This album takes in the sounds that were coming out of the New York Latin clubs – mixing up jazz, soul, funk and R&B with driving, hypnotic and sexy Latin rhythms. Drawn from the vaults of Fania, the most prominent Latin record company of all time, we've spent many years listening and dancing before finally selecting these 18 songs from the many thousands available in the huge Fania catalogue.

And so here it is – the best Latin sounds from the richest period in Latin music – taking in hard latin jazz, sultry latin soul and bangin' latin funk – songs that are as relevant today as they were when they were first recorded, and songs that still work their magic on the dancefloor!
