Trumpet and trombone man Mac Gollehon has been a standout on the recordings of many other more known artists, including David Bowie, Grace Jones, Duran Duran, now comes his own visionary project. Mac Gollehon & The Hispanic Mechanics is a percussion, horn-powered excursion through a funk and Latin-flavored wonderland. The use of electric sound effect and textures give the danceable tunes a very colorful, spacey feel. Gollehon’s solos ride the groove in a very engaging way. Other musicians on the project are bassist Mike Griot, guitarist Tomas Donicker and percussionists Miguel Valdez, Baba Don and Ronnie Roc. Vocalists on the project include Tina Torres, Miguel Valdez and Josh David. Remixes of several tracks add an even more trippy feel to the whole effort. Gollehon has assembled a very different, fun and entertaining work here.
