Üwe Schmidt is an supremely talented musician, with real soul and, equal to his musicianship, a sly sense of humor. So many stage names, such great titles: "Sounds like Preset Rhythm," "All Notes On," "Son of a Glitch." This record is a joy. It features loving, swinging Latin-style covers of several well-known US/English pop songs (Prince, Eurythimics, Trio, etc.) but when the band kicks into the famous Latin dance tune "Que Rico El Mambo," you know they are the real thing.
Schmidt calls it Electrolatino, but this is truly great music no mater what
