Hip Spanic Allstars, Old School Revolution

San Francisco veterans of Santana, Tower of Power and other legacy groups released an album of nostalgic no-worries music for hanging out and riding low. Horns and congas punctuate Hip Spanic Allstars’ toking version of “Crystal Blue Persuasion.” “Party in the Mission” picks up the groove where the disco era left off. Salsa, funk, rock, jazz and even cha-cha-cha make appearances at this album-long fiesta that celebrates the West Coast Latino old school musical revolution of the album’s title. -- JUDY CANTOR-NAVAS
