Robin Jones aka 'The Godfather of British Latin Music' brought some sunshine to often grey UK shores with the pastoral jazz sounds of his debut album. The rhythms have an Anglo skip with an Afro-Cuban soul as they melt flutes, Fender Rhodes and swinging drums and were recorded in 1971.

He had help from three percussionists who help make this one a cult classic that has been hard to find over the years. Now London jazz DJ Paul Murphy's Jazz Room Records rights that wring with this fresh reissue.
