Snowboy - Pit Bull Latin Jazz

Snowboy is a British-based Latin artist who blends dance-club rhythms with acid jazz, hip-hop and pop.

Beginning with 1988's Ritmo Snowbo, he released a series of independent records on Acid Jazz -- one of which, the 1994 album Something's Coming, reached the Top Ten on the U.K. independent charts -- before signing to Hollywood Records in 1995.

The Latin-jazz-oriented Mambo Rage followed on the Ubiquity label in 1998, highlighting Snowboy's conga playing, and he scored a club hit that year with the single "Casa Forte."

In 2000, he returned with two releases, The Soul of Snowboy and Afro Cuban Jazz (the latter strongly influenced by progressive Latin jazz musicians like Charlie and Eddie Palmieri).

Pit Bull Latin Jazz was released in 1995. Snowboy himself has been quoted as saying of this album "Musically this is nearer to the sound and direction I'd been looking for; specifically the 'Rhodes and Organ' sound on both EDDIE and CHARLIE PALMIERI'S Latin albums of the early 70's. We still use this sound currently. I still think What the Hell's Going On and particularly The East Harlem Quickstep are the best two tracks i've ever recorded. If there is a 'Snowboy sound' these represent it the closest. "

What is Acid Jazz?

Acid jazz (also known as club jazz) is a musical genre that combines elements of soul music, funk, disco, particularly looping beats and modal harmony. It developed over the 1980s and 1990s and could be seen as tacking the sound of jazz-funk onto electronic dance/pop music.

The compositions of groups such as The Brand New Heavies and Incognito often feature chord structures usually associated with Jazz music. The Heavies in particular were known in their early years for beginning their songs as catchy pop and rapidly steering them into jazz territory before "resolving" the composition and thus not losing any pop listeners but successfully "exposing" them to jazz elements in "baby steps".

The acid jazz "movement" is also seen as a "revival" of jazz-funk or jazz fusion or soul jazz by leading DJs such as Norman Jay or Gilles Peterson or Patrick Forge, also known as "rare groove crate diggers".
