"Saffron & Soul" is the sound of a top-notch latin jazz band in full flight. Covers of recent hits by the Four Tops sit alongside the classic 'Caravan', the dancefloor heat of 'Something Black' and the mod jazz groove of 'What A Piece'. "Shuckin' & Jivin'" is the first of Pucho's Latin Soul albums and features pianist Neal Creque and vocalist Jackie Soul. The title track and a stunning 'You Are My Sunshine' have made this sought after by DJs, but the album is high quality from start to finish and ends with a great version of Herbie Hancock's 'Maiden Voyage'. This two on one CD release is remastered from the original master tapes and comes with a sleeve note by project supervisor Dean Rudland.
