NU YORICA! Culture Clash in New York City.
Experiments in Latin Music 1970-77
20th Anniversary Expanded Edition out now on Soul Jazz Records on double CD, two seperate volumes of double vinyl (+ download code) and worldwide digital album!
" Soul Jazz Records was among the first systematic, thoughtful explorers of a musical past. It's clear that Nu Yorica is still one of the best collections that has ever been put together.
It remains now, as it was then, an electrifying glimpse into a pulsing, sonically radical musical world, one that had never been presented in such coherent overview, and has not been since.
Expertly conceived and selected this collection is tightly focussed on the explosively original and fiercely funky musical intersection that was 1970s Afro-Latin New York.
Everything that sounded fresh 20 years ago still sounds that way." The Wire May 2015
