Los Nombres, Los Nombres, Numero Group

Once again scouring the vaults, this time for rare Latin funk gems, Chicago’s Numero Group unearths early ’70s Puerto Rican septet Los Nombres, who successfully combined War-worthy funk with mellow, three-part harmony pop akin to Gary Puckett and the Union Gap or The Rascals.

Once again scouring the vaults, this time for rare Latin funk gems, Chicago’s Numero Group unearths early- ’70s Puerto Rican septet Los Nombres, who successfully combined War-worthy funk with mellow, three-part harmony pop akin to Gary Puckett and the Union Gap or The Rascals. This potent amalgam, combined with some energetic jazz-psyfreak blowouts, make this an impossible oddity too eclectic to ignore.
