Classics: Eric Kupper presents K-Scope – Latin Blues Pt. 1 (Twisted America)
I’ll never thank enough Twisted America label head Rob Di Stefano for givin’ me a promo copy of this timeless jewel back in the day. Eric Kupper displaying his incredible skills and sensibility as a keyboardist with his Hammond organ. Therefore creating the hypnotic percussive jazzy/funk ‘Latin Blues Pt.1′. As a matter of fact, a cut speakin’ of which it feels hard to not establish an affiliation with Erotic Drum Band‘s ‘Jerky Rhythm’. Don’t you think?
