Brock's multi-hued percussion is joined by the soaring guitar sounds of composer/guitarist Van Manakas. Upbeat grooves and many world-jazz flavors make this a varied, exciting sound experience.

Master percussionist and RR bestseller Jim Brock, well known from "Tropic Affair," plays impressively on this album and also features the music of guitar wizard Van Manakas, with bass, drums, keyboards and winds.

From the Tango stylings of Argentina to the celebrations of Brazil, LETTERS FROM THE EQUATOR, takes the armchair traveler on an exciting journey into the furthest regions a sound system can reproduce. “Prof.” Keith Johnson has made a new high-resolution digital transfer from the original analogue masters, with much-improved sonics. This has long been one of Reference Recording's highly-regarded studio productions, of dynamic and colorful originals with a Latin tinge. If the original release escaped you, don’t hesitate about this significant re-issue.
