KOJATO & The Afro Latin Cougaritas: All About Jazz

Nothing like some good old fashioned Jazz music to help lift your spirits. What's better is to hear tunes that will make you want to hit the dancefloor and boogie. KOJATO & The Afro Latin Cougaritas make that type of Jazz, that's fun and soul soothing. I'm really fond of the title track, "All About Jazz" that kicks this album off. Then they move on with a tribute to the late Fela Kuti with "Everywhere You Go Now, Kuti" that features some heavy Afro-Beat influence. Overall, this is a great album to have part of your collection because of their blend of Jazz music with African rhythms. All About Jazz would also make a great soundtrack for a road trip or to grab a partner to cut a rug with. A vinyl and CD release is scheduled for worldwide purchase, although you can get it as a digital download now by way of their Bandcamp page. The digital download also comes with bonus material, so don't be afraid to help yourself.
