The story of Sapo starts with Richard Bean, who began getting involved with music by playing sax in Junior High. Liking it so much, he formed and performed with different bands like The Dynamics (with Carlos Santana), Wizardz ( with former Malo guitarist Abel Zarate), Jet (with Jorge Santana, brother of latin rock legend Carlos Santana), The Righteous Ones, Casanova (with Mike Judge bassist- creator of Beavis and Butt Head), but it wasn’t until 1968 with a top 40 band called The Malibu’s, that one of his most creative periods would occur.

As the latin rock scene blossomed in the San Francisco Bay Area, the popularity of groups like Santana gave way to a new sound that would sweep the country. Producer David Rubinson decided he was going to create a super latin group and began to incorporate musicians from various groups in the area that would form the legendery Chicano

It's a shame these guys didn't release at least one more record but the single LP they have is still pretty ace.

Once lead singer and composer Bean left Malo he formed a new band to pick up with pretty much the same feel; rock-Latin rhythms mixed with salsa, punchy horns and some great songs. Maybe he's not the greatest singer it doesn't really impact my enjoyment of the songs - especially the charging 'Get it On' or opener 'Been Had.'

'Can't Make It' borrows clearly from the Bean's hit with Malo (Suavecito) and 'Nina' is pretty catchy too - overall, if you're into Latin Jazz and want something like Malo but still with a few subtle differences, have a look at Sapo.
