Henry “Pucho” Brown & Vinyl Crisis Talk Rare & Funky Tracks.

Pucho.

Vinyl Crisis spent time on the airwaves with Henry “Pucho” Brown, the man behind the incredible Pucho & His Latin Soul Brothers. Pucho began recording in 1963, and really hit his stride between 1966 and 1970, when he cut over half a dozen albums for Prestige. On these he helped pioneer a style termed Latin boogaloo, which mixed jazz, New York-style Latin music, R&B/soul, and the sort of funk that was just emerging from James Brown and other performers. Pucho wasn’t afraid to mix up his material on his LPs, which placed originals by Brown and the Latin Soul Brothers next to covers of tunes by Herbie Hancock, the Temptations, the Beatles, Duke Ellington, and John Barry.
