This release marks the first vinyl reissue of the jazz classic by master conguero Mongo Santamar¡a. First released in 1976, Sofrito combines jazz with Afro-Cuban grooves, funk and soul. From the simmering blues of "Spring Song" to the devastating bass line of "O Mi Shang¢" to the rousing groove of the title track, this set exemplifies the heady ambition of '70s Afro-fusion at its most soulful. This edition features lacquers cut by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio and is pressed on 180-gram vinyl.
