La Clave (Verve By Request Series) LP

La Clave

Arriving from various points in Mexico, Panama, Cuba and Puerto Rico, this nine-man group led by Benny Velarde found each other and their music in San Francisco in the early 1970’s. They brought the music of their homes to the heavy sounds of San Francisco and merged the two, resulting in this soulful, joyful and unique 1973 recording. The Verve By Request Series features 180-gram vinyl, pressed at Third Man in Detroit.
