Sabroso! El Ultimo Baile

Hello Y'all,
It's been a few weeks but I am back. This week may be the last week under the Sabroso! moniker but not the end of Latin music. The new format will include...anything I fucking feel like! Free form and out of earshot of babies; let the profanities fly. Too many records and genres to deny the speakers the great joy of unlimited sounds and rhythms.

"You put me down - 'Cause I couldn't dance - You didn't even want me around - But now I'm back - To let you know - I can really, shake 'em down!"

I'll have to take a look at the Maxwell's schedule and see what the schedule is like and when the next DJ night is. Regardless next time:
New name; New format.

This week will feature some great Latin music and a crate of Soul Jazz records. God I love Soul Jazz and Groove records. I found it almost impossible to choose which Charles Kynard or Jimmy McGriff record to bring. Wouldn't you like to know? If only all decisions had such sweet consequences. I can't wait to listen to these records as well. So please come by and I hope you enjoy as much as I do.

Here's some of the treats on this weeks menu:
