La Clave - La Clave [Verve 'By Request' Series 2023 Reissue]

A great big international jazz gang from all over the globe, taking over the streets of 'frisco, just after the hippies had ruined it. This lightning-in-a-bottle could've been lost to the ages, but thanks to Detroit's Third Man, we get another trip back to some kind of golden age.
Arriving from various points in Mexico, Panama, Cuba and Puerto Rico, this nine-man group led by Benny Velarde found each other and their music in San Francisco in the early 1970’s. They brought the music of their homes to the heavy sounds of San Francisco and merged the two, resulting in this soulful, joyful and unique 1973 recording. This Verve 'By Request' title is pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Third Man in Detroit.
