This super Latin Rock group was lead by Carlos Santana younger brother Jorge Santana, who is also a guitarist.
Malo's second album was cut with a lineup that had been reorganized following their debut.
It's nonetheless a strong and invigorating Latin rock jazz fusion, boasting some really hot playing, both in the ensemble work and improvisation. The six cuts, save one, all run more than five minutes, the closing "Latin Boogaloo" approaching ten minutes in length. Often this is closer to rockified salsa music than it is to the salsified rock music of lead guitarist Jorge Santana.
