CD Review: Ozomatli Cover Latin Classics Traveling "Non-Stop Mexico To Jamaica"

The Grammy-winning, Latin-fusion band Ozomatli recently released their new studio album "Non-Stop Mexico To Jamaica." They will kick-off the album's debut with a live show at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA. This is the band's 8th studio album and it features some special guests including Herb Albert, Juanes and G-Love to name a few. The album also included re-imaged versions of some famous Latin-based songs.
 
The new 14-song release begins with the reggae-infused "Eras" as the rhythm begins to grab hold of you. They deliver a ska-like versions of Selena's "Como La Flor" and Mana's "Oye Mi Amor." Herb Albert then steps in to help with the island-flavor of "Besame Mucho." Juanes lends a hand on the Juan Gabriel classic "Noa Noa," before Kyle McDonald (Slightly Stoopid) works with Ozomatli on the west-coast vibe of Richie Valens' "La Bamba." They turn Santana's "Evil Ways" into a dance club hymn, before finishing up with G-Love and Chali 2Na helping out on the addictive groove of "Land of 1,000 Dances" and fun electronic swing of Redbone's "Come And Get Your Love."
