Salsoul is the ninth studio album by trailblazing Filipino African American singer Joe Bataan. The term "Salsoul" was born out of Bataan's love for salsa and soul, which developed during his youth in New York's Spanish Harlem. On Salsoul, the listener can get the full scope of Bataan's many talents. Ballads such as "Mujer Mia" and "Peace, Friendship, Solidarity" allow his heartfelt vocals to soar. The funky instrumental "Latin Strut," showcases his skills as a pianist and arranger. Bataan's Afro-Cuban rendition of the jazz standard "When Sunny Gets Blue," reaches new heights, delivering powerful, timeless reinterpretation – that of a unique performer inspired by bringing together different genres and cultures.
Limited to 1000 copies, the VMP exclusive version of Joe Bataan's Salsoul is pressed on 180g Neon Pink Marble vinyl at Precision Record Pressing (PRP). The 1LP will arrive in a single, direct-to-board, foil-stamped and numbered jacket. It was digitally remastered by Philip Shaw Bova.
