Description

One of the great influential figures of Latin Jazz percussion is that of Louis "Sabu" Martinez, who had been performing in groups and ensembles as early as the age of 11. Over the decades of his live, Martinez had worked with some of the greatest names in latin, jazz, and swing history, from Benny Goodman and Count Basie to Thelonius Monk and Charles Mingus to Tony Bennett and Harry Belafonte. Later after many years of session playing, he would lead his own band, which would go on to record several essential albums in latin jazz, including Palo Congo, which was listed in the book 1001 Albums You Must Listen To Before You Die, before later re-locating to Sweden in the late 1960s.

During his time in Sweden, he continued to record, contributing heavily to the burgeoning jazz scene that was building there, as well as numerous visiting American musicians. It was there that he also recorded what would be his final album, Afro Temple, which is considered one of Martinez's greatest, and a masterpiece of the genre. Featuring some of his finest precision percussion, against a backdrop of Afro-Cuban instrumentation, and an air of indelible Latino pride.
