JOE BATAAN - IF I WERE A KING
Joe Bataan is one of the most influential musicians of the New York City scene that took elements of jazz, Latin, and soul music and created a whole new thing, initially centered around the Boogaloo dance craze that was all the rage in 1967.
Joe Bataan also has a way with deep soul ballads such as this; a lovely slow jam that's also found on his classic LP Saint Latin's Day Massacre.
