EDITORS’ NOTES

With this album's irresistible title track, Pete Rodriguez helped create boogaloo, a fusion of soul and Latin grooves that lit up Spanish-speaking New York in the ’60s. But "I Like It Like That" is a blast in any language, its potent groove punctuated by Rodriguez's playful braggadocio and a shout-along chorus. He maintains that energy throughout the LP, with funky horns on "Si Quieres Bailar" and a percussion workout on "3 and 1." Jazzier tracks, like the piano-driven "Pete's Madness," anticipate the forthcoming salsa explosion.
