Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
While most of the collections in the Colors of Latin Jazz series of releases are well assembled, this one is especially delightful. Never mind the corny food theme on Soul Cookin', just dig into the sounds because there is a double entendre in the title. This is funky, gritty, steaming soulful jazz of all Latin varieties.

The cuts are well-sequenced and beautifully illustrate the rich and varied tradition of Latin soul-jazz.

If one needs any proof at all, just sample "Sweet 'Tater Pie," by Santamaria at any of your local CD emporiums that provide such a service, or check it here. It may be the best cut here, but they are all up to that standard of excellence. Add to this a budget price and you cannot, cannot go wrong!
