Big Life Records BLRT 54

Latin Percussionist Mark Cotgrove, in his alter-ego guise 'Snowboy: The UK's Ambassador of Afro Cuban Jazz', has worked with some of Brit Soul finest names the world has never heard of, Lisa Stansfield, Incognito, James Taylor Quartet & Basia to name but a few. After an early break via Coldcut, he went on to become a major player in the Acid Jazz movement of the 90's.

This is...
Snowboy says:
"A recreation of the Leo's Sunshipp classic"
...featuring one of the UK's finest vocalist's, Noel McKoy. The musicians are a mixture of Lisa Stansfield's band and the James Taylor Quartet. The B-side features 'Salsa Supremo' trombonist Joe De Jesus on a Snowboy penned Latin Jazz corker which, to my knowledge, is unavailable outside of this 12".

If you enjoy this 12" you could do far worse than invest in a copy of 'Snowboy's Soul Spectacular'. Find out more about Snowboy and also, the UK Acid Jazz movement here.
