Naked Lunch present a reissue of The Latin World Of Edmundo Ros, originally released on Decca Records UK in 1970. Trinidad born bandleader Edmundo Ros was a key figure in Latin music in post war Britain. Immigrated to London in the late '30s, he effectively introduced the Rhumba and Samba to the U.K. A charming man and multi-talented musician, Ros became a sensation, attracting the cream of London society to his appearances at the lavish Coconut Grove. Thanks to his infectious mix of authentic Cuban rhumba and other ingredients including mambo, calypso, and samba, Latin music became a significant part of postwar Britain's dance scene. A great introduction to the exotic sound of Ros's big band.
