Joe Bataan is the ultimate Latin Soul crooner of his era. I believe you will agree with this observation after listening to this album, which was recorded during the height of Joe Bataan’s popularity, in 1971.
The arrangements, written by Joe, who taught himself how to play piano, are examples of the fusion of Latin and Soul music as it refers to the Joe Bataan sound. He composes and performs music that young Latinos could easily relate to.

Many of these fans first took notice of his recordings in 1967, while listening to New York’s late night radio hosts Dick ‘Ricardo’ Sugar and Symphony Sid. His popularity was quite evident by virtue of the long list of requests for his recordings. This album offers you the opportunity to hear some of Joe’s most influential compositions. By listening to “Mr. New York and The East Side Kids” you will be treated to an enjoyable blend of Latin Soul and Salsa from that great era, done in the inimitable Joe Bataan fashion.

Joe Bataan es máximo exponente romántico del soul latino de su era. Creo que coincidirán con esta observación después de escuchar este álbum, que fue grabado durante la cima de la popularidad de Joe Bataan en 1971. Los arreglos, escritos por Joe, quien aprendió solo a tocar el piano, son ejemplos de la fusión de la música latina y soul, en lo que se refiere al sonido de Joe Bataan. Él compone y toca música que los jóvenes latinos pueden relacionar fácilmente.

Muchos de estos fanáticos se dieron cuenta de sus grabaciones por primera vez en 1967, mientras escuchaban las transmisiones radiales nocturnas en Nueva York de Dick ‘Ricardo’ Sugar y Symphony Sid. Su popularidad era bastante evidente en virtud de la larga lista de peticiones de sus grabaciones.

Este álbum le ofrece la oportunidad de escuchar algunas de las composiciones más influyentes de Joe. Al escuchar “Mr. New York and The East Side Kids” usted será invitado a una mezcla agradable de soul latino y salsa de la gran era, hecha en el inimitable estilo de Joe Bataan.
