William Correa (February 28, 1934 – September 15, 1983),better known by his stage name Willie Bobo, was an American Latin jazz percussionist of Puerto Rican descent. Bobo rejected the stereotypical expectations of Latino music and was noted for combining elements of Jazz, Latin and Rhythm and Blues music. Willie Bobo - Talkin' Verve is a great collection of songs by his very versatile band, from slower tunes like Night Walk to medium jazz blues like Mercy, Mercy, Mercy to faster tempo excursions like Roots and Sham Time. Santana covered Willie Bobo's Latin song "Evil Ways" (included here) in 1969 on their debut album. There is also a version of Burt Bacharach's The Look of Love. Fried Neck Bones And Some Home Fries was featured in the movie Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. The bass player really keeps it in the pocket with the percussion players. The horn players and flute keep things lively, upbeat and jazzy. There are three sample tunes below and the last link will give you the entire album. It's party time!
