5.0 out of 5 stars "E Music is Pete Escovedo", July 11, 2000
This review is from: E Music (Audio CD)
Pete Escovedo has been a major force in Latin music since the late '60s, with his versatility in every aspect of music, from Latin jazz, salsa, rock and Latin pop. Escovedo has been surrounded by music since his childhood growing up in Oakland, known to friends and fans as "Mr. E" - puts his contemporary spin on a new recording of mambo, guajira, cha cha and even a little samba. He started using his daughter, Sheila E in the mid '70s when she was still a teenager, they first recorded in 1976 and have worked together many times since then.
Concord Records (picante) - presents Mr. E's signature of smooth-yet-hot blend of contemporary jazz and Latin music, so uniquely Escovedo, it can only be described as "E Music". Let's not forget special guests - Sheila E (vocals-drums-percussion), George Duke (piano), Ray Obiedo (guitar), and Ray Vega (trumpet) really stoke up the fire, helping Pete bring his most potent brew of jazz and Latin music to a full boil. This album has everything you could want in Latin, Jazz or just good music for your listening pleasure - "E Music" i-i-i-i-is Pete Escovedo!

How can you fail to put "La Samba" with Justo Almario's Sax Solo as your highlights? That is one of the best sax solos I've ever heard. This is a magnificent collection of songs.
