Album Notes
Cougar Records Present "Sexy Latin Lounge Returns " Produced by Cougar Estrada Recorded at Cougar Records Final recording at Away Team Studios. Mixed by Nik Green and Cougar Estrada at The Away Team Studio in Goleta CA. Art Work by Kevin Vazquez, Liner Notes Linda Ulvaeus.

Moments of remembrance, in whatever form they may
come; connect us to the truth that we are never
separate from love. "Sexy Latin Lounge Returns",
the latest cresting wave from Cougar Records, is full
of such moments, sound universes that wash over us
like the ocean tide. Soon we are swaying on inner
currents of surrender and reveling in tender stirrings
of ardent devotion. This music is further proof that the classics come to life when Cougar Estrada breathes on them, somehow preserving the integrity and character of the
repertoire performed despite his innovative treatment
of the music. The songs are complex rhythmic
movements carrying both historical revelation and
artistic weight. Cougar's multistyle, multisource arrangement techniques and brilliant musicality (and successful forays into experimental realms) along with the solid backing of his family and guests, infuse the music
with intrigue and wonder. The fact that a lot of this
recording was done in one or two takes boggles the
mind. The technical virtuosity of these musicians
spans the reach between the subtlest statement to the
most tremendous rush of energy. Ruben Estrada's
awesome vibraphone, piano and trumpet prowess can move
mountains, and Henry Estrada's dynamic phrasing on the
saxophone is a marvel to behold. Ruben Martinez plays
a central and consistently profound role on standup
bass as he continues to further amaze us with his
serenely contemplative flute playing. Also noteworthy
on certain selections is the masterful support of Tony
Saito (percussion), Adolfo Acosta (trumpet), John
Schnackenberg (saxophone), Charlie Wisuri on guitar
and Vivien Mason's sweet sweet vocals on Cuando, Cuando, Cuando, not to mention the Los Vegas vocals and little embellishments of Kevin Vazquez on Como Fue, pure beauty. From the rolling heaviness of Inovidable to the deeply reverent Adoro, and then the strikingly original approach to Juarez, or the more lighthearted innocence of Ella, these pearls contain concentrated energies, like leverage points, lifting us to a
limitless sphere of feeling with no boundaries or
circumference. This is a collection that contains the
sorcery of love, making you feel good!

Ballads, Bolero, Bossa Nova, Cha Cha Cha, Mambo.

Artist history
Ruben "Cougar" Estrada Jr. was not only born in the back seat of a 1967 Mercury Cougar; he was born into the musical family of The Estrada Brothers Latin Jazz Sextet. "I can remember going to see my father's band (The Estrada Brothers) play at a wedding. I would sit on the side of the stage and play clave or cowbell along with my uncles." Cougar was documented on The Estrada Brothers first CD recording in 1989 at only 19. He then recorded on Steal Big, Steal Little (Movie Soundtrack) featuring musicians Stephan Grapelli, Steve Gadd, Cachao, Albita, Paquito De Rivera, Arturo Sandoval and actor Andy Garcia. Recent live work includes touring the country with the Latin Playboys, Los Super Seven and travels to Guatemala and Japan with Michael Jackson's sister Rebbie Jackson. In addition to his work on The Mennonite and Ballads (Jazz trumpeter project, Nate Birkey), Cougar has recently recorded on new works by The Estrada Brothers Latin Jazz Sextet (due in Spring 2002), The Latin Jazz All-Stars featuring the best Latin Jazz Musicians in Southern CA, country artist Rick Trevino, The Mavericks' Raul Malo, a forthcoming Los Lobos CD, his own genre defying group ConGa PunKs, and the debut of his most recent production venture: Cougar Records.

The Universal Language
Cougar continues to become much more confident as his vision expands. I guess it is more self-reliance. I am saddened every time I think of the fact that his mom isn't her to share in all of his personal and future accomplishments. The absolute fact is that she is not here, physically. But her spirit is alive and well in heaven and in her creation of this modern day master. I miss her constantly and was more than honored to help with this project and sing on “ Como Fue” I know this work brings him many days where he can reminisce about the wonderful times with his mother.

If music is "The Universal Language" and I wholeheartedly agree, look at what music's role in our lives has been! From lifting up ill people and empowering charitable events, to striving for that "Party Atmosphere", Sexy Latin Lounge Returns will bestow upon the entire globe its magical powers in countless ways!!!


I find the album is excellent for lounge settings...
Hi there, you might remember me, if you remember your trip to Saskatoon, Canda (again, sorry about the rain). I was the airport screener you spoke to and kindly gave a copy of your CD, Sexy Latin Lounge Returns. (I told you that I also Dj in my down time)

I find the album is excellent for lounge settings, where I want people to relax, chill and zone into the music, while they are talking, drinking and relaxing.

This is the best cd I've heard period. This CD is perfect for salsa, jazz, and classic bolero music fans. It's an emotional roller-coaster. Damn Good CD! From "En Mi Viejo San Juan" to "El Pescador".
