A distinguished composer and the producer of the vast majority of his albums, Joe Bataan brought to his discography a series of innovations, such as the fusion of rhythms influenced by Afro-Cuban and Brazilian music. He made a name for himself as the driving force of Latin soul and pop soul. He also anticipated disco, a genre he would later influence, and one that would influence the new tendencies of bands and orchestras. Watch Joe live at the AC Jazz Fest!
