Hand picked records important to the history of Soul Strut. This is updated (almost) daily.
The lone album released by Cuban percussionist Armando Peraza. Peraza had been playing in Cal Tjader's latin jazz band for a few years before he was signed to his label Skye Records to record his debut in 1969. The result is a unique latin jazz album with heavy congas and a groovy swing (suitable for a B-Boy environment). Highlights include "Funky Broadway", "Souled Out", and the title cut. The album was arranged and co-produced by Gary McFarland who died mysteriously in a New York bar from liquid methadone poisoning. The Skye label folded shortly after this release.
