"Seven Stops to Heaven" is the third album by my band, formerly known as "The Robin Jones' Latin Jazz Sextet", now known as "Latin Underground". The object of the band has always been to fuse Latin, Jazz and some Funk, using original Latin and Jazz standards. We have always tried to have a very high standard of Jazz solos. I am proud to say that many of the best Jazz players around (many of whom have become Bandleaders in their own right) have graced the ranks of the band. We were recorded by a brilliant new engineer Nick Cecil. The originals, all by Sax virtuoso Nick Walker, are of the usual high standard. The rhythms are original Latin, with some licence in the direction of the Jazz. We hope you like it" Robin Jones.

Conga master Robin Jones puts together a swinging salsa team of Nick Walker/bari-fl, Gavin Broom/tp, Chris Kibble/p, Jonny Gee/b and Marac Cecil/perc for a mix of jazz standards and originals. He, together with Cecil and Gee lay down a sizzling foundation that serves as a catapult for the soloists. Broom’s trumpet is Lee Morgan-piercing on an exciting take of “Night In Tunisia” while Walker’s baritone sax opens up bel canto before the rhythm comes in for a grandiose take of “Laura.” Kibble’s piano does a wonderful dance with Gee in “Passion Fruit” before changing partners and dips and dives with Jones to close the song. Trumpet and flute floate over a lovely “Song for Melissa” while the percussion saunters over “Which is Broom?” before the congas take over on a sizzling reading of the title track. Latin lovers will flock to this one.
