A little bit of Rio sun breaking through grey British clouds, some pastoral jazz dew to your Latin swing and bit of that Anglo-skip to your Afro-Cuban soul it must be a reissue from Robin Jones aka 'The Godfather of British Latin Music'.

For those who dig: British Jazz meeting Latin Afro Jazz, flutes, fender rhodes, swinging rhythms and bit of Anglo pastoral.

Often affectionately referred to as the "Godfather of British Latin music" Robin Jones was truly one of the great performers on the international Latin scene.

Denga, his first recording from 1971 is a scintillating fusion of Afro-Cuban and Afro-Brazillian rhythms laden with heavy Fender Rhodes sounds and no less than three Afro-Latin Percussionists. The hard-to-find album has now been reissued by legendary London jazz DJ Paul Murphy's Jazz Room Records imprint. It should be an essential purchase for anyone who loves Latin jazz.

Feature's Robin's personal favorites including "Goodbye Batucada" which rightfully lays claim to be the first Brazilian Jazz Samba tune recorded in the UK and the Worldwide Sound standard setters "Denga" and "Africa Revisited".
