Arturo,
  
  Willie Bobo appears with Santana in a late 60's early 70's movie " Soul  to Soul" A concert filmed in Africa.I saw it in a drive -in theater  out-side Orlando when I was a kid.
There was still a tinge of racism  still going on at the time and the  movie was interrupted and  protested by kkk'ers and burning crosses only after a few shows....hmm.
  I think it had Wilson Pickett, Ike &Tina and more...not exactly sure it has been so long ago.
  
  Thanks,
  Carlos Fernandez

Most everyone is aware of the influence Tito Puente had on a young Carlos
Santana resulting in 2 mega hits of previously recorded songs by the T P
band, Oye Como Va and Pa' Los Rumberos. Most may not be aware that Mongo and
Willie Bobo were bigger influences after they broke away from the Cal Tjader
group when Mongo formed his own band and virtually created "Latin soul" by
themselves. Two other Santana hits, Evil Ways and No One Can Depend On were
originally recorded by Willie Bobo's group after he left Mongo's band.

Willie is way under rated, he was a skilled trap drummer as well as master
timbal player. When Willie was in the Tito band, Puente refused to let Bobo
play timbal when he was playing vibes. I hope the 2 Bobo cover songs are
included in this new Santana tribute album Jae and others have been chatting
about it.

''It  goes without saying that FRANK SINATRA could have enlisted the services  of any accompanist he wanted. The fact that he chose RUSS KASSOFF  speaks volumes about Kassoff’s unequivocal artistry, which is  splendidly showcased on SOMEWHERE'' (Jack Bowers-AAJ).  After  almost 40 years as a professional musician, KASSOFF's first album as a  leader features his serene beauty, intriguing style, and vivid concepts  as an outstanding composer and gifted improviser. With MARTIN WIND  (bass) and TIM HORNER (drums), ''SOMEWHERE is vibrant, compelling, and  destined to become an essential component of collections that favor  jazz trios'' (Paula Edelstein-AMG).  ''Performed with class and a  fine touch'' (Marion McPartland), ''SOMEWHERE is a masterpiece'' (Bucky  Pizzarelli). ''I loved the Kassoff CD. It's a beautiful  recording. Russ is a hell of a good piano player.'' (Dave McKenna)
 
WITH A NEW RESPECT FOR THE MEANING OF ''4TH QUARTER'' 
FROM A RADIO PROGRAMMER'S PERSPECTIVE,
YOUR EMBRACE AND PERSONAL ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF ''SOMEWHERE'' DO ME GREAT HONOR.
Sincerely, Russ.
