Since no one else has jumped in on this, I'll comment from my more recent
experience with the music. My first exposure was "The Best of Snowboy &
the Latin Section," a 94 release I picked up last year and really enjoyed.
Later, I picked up their earlier album, "Descarga Mambito," which was
released in 91. I like this one even better than their "Best of..."
album--great Latin rhythms. And, as I said, the new album has me hoppin'...
