"It's not often that an essential new release hits the street, and for the purposes of adding to your collection in a cost-effective manner it is imperative to recognize a class act when it's in your face, and to score the product while the stocks are fresh in the stores. Such a release is this fine effort on Ubiquity offshoot label CuBop, a compendium of the cream of the first two LP's by the straight-out-of-Tokyo Soul Bossa Trio, with not an ounce of fat left in the mix. Extremely dance-friendly, a crystal clear production, an on-the-money sleeve and every track a retro groovy winner in a soulful Brazilian Latin straight-ahead style. My only regret about this album is that it wasn't released at midnight on December 31st--then I could have voted it my album of the year for 1995 and 1996."

The Soul Bossa Trio was formed by Gonzales Suzuki in 1993, after the breakup of the Tokyo Panorama Mambo Boys, who had carved themselves a niche in the 1980s Tokyo club scene. Piano, bass, and drums swing hard in a Brazilian and Afro-Cuban style.
