Harlem River Drive (1971, NYC)

Harlem River Drive were a short-lived but righteous group of musicians brought together in 1970-71 by Puerto Rican pianist and bandleader Eddie Palmieri.   Veritable king of the Latin dance floors, by the end of the 1960s Palmieri was restless, out to top himself, and looking to push beyond the boundaries of the music he had been performing over the past decade. So that's what he did. He got down and pushed further out.

A street-tough blend of Latin rhythms, 70s funk, fusion, soul grooves and social poetry . . .
