"Bobo Motion" by Willie Bobo


In 1967, Verve Records released Bobo Motion by percussionist Willie Bobo. Bobo Motion leans toward a unique blend of Afro-Cuban beats with soul-jazz, which Willie Bobo was known for. The album showcases the ever-changing sound of jazz, which began to blend with the young genre of soul music. The cover hints at Bobo's eccentric drumming, as he is seen montaged in a set of different positions. The subtlety of the cover leaves much to unpack, as the album radiates youthful energy.
