If you were having cocktails in a smoky Latin jazz club, watching beautiful people dance, Gabin‘s Mr. Freedom would be the soundtrack for the evening. The Italian duo‘s latest endeavor is an uptempo recording that combines blues and Latin rhythms with a Sergio Mendes-like-charm. Songs like “Into My Soul,” “Midnight Café,” and “It‘s Gonna Be” are groovy, rhythmic, and surprisingly soulful, making Mr. Freedom a refreshing departure from the recent onslaught of mechanical sounding party records.
