Barretto Best When He's Funky

Continuing with the numerous releases by male performers at the end of this year is a cabaret performer by the name of David Barretto, a white soulful singer who does best when he gets funky with a touch of Latin seasoning. His album, Para Mis Hermanos, shows a staggering new singer who would give s superb concert.

JOHN MARTYN, one of the most restful voices around, despite his free-form style (which sounds like a completely bombed Dean Martin) needs translators on this release, Sunday's Child.
There is a fine use of the moog, but when the album is compared to his last attempt, Inside Out, Sunday's Child can be left in the record rack.
