Timbale titan Willie Bobo, who had worked with Mongo Santamaria and Cal Tjader before going solo, is best known for mid-1960s classics such as "Spanish Grease," where he served up Latin jazz and funky grooves that would be hailed as "acid jazz" inspirations decades later. BOBO MOTION, originally released on Verve in 1967 when Bobo was at his peak, is very much in the vein of his best-known material. Laying into jazz versions of everything from Santana's "Evil Ways" to the Ritchie Valens hit "La Bamba" with sly syncopation and appropriately greasy grooves, Bobo stirs up a percolating pot of percussion-led tracks, and even does a little singing along the way.
