Uno Dos Tres 1,2,3 is an album by jazz percussionist Willie Bobo recorded in 1966 and released on the Verve label. Its creeping Latin soul groove was, like "Spanish Grease," an obvious inspiration for Carlos Santana". Boogaloo in Room 802" (John Hart, Melvin Lastie) - 2:35.

On the back of the original Verve record jacket, the promotional copy quotes him extensively about 'Uno Dos Tres 1,2,3'. One passage in particular is telling, with Bobo bemoaning his typecasting in the jazz world: If you’re Latin, people expect you to play only Latin. A byproduct of years of working under American and British bandleaders eager to explore or cash in on Afro-Caribbean derivations, that sentiment hangs like an albatross around Bobo’s neck.

Willie Bobo's 1965 LP, Spanish Grease, has been combined with his Uno Dos Tres 1-2-3 LP from 1966 on one CD reissue. One pass through the title cut of Spanish Grease and you know that Carlos Santana was listening. The easy R&B/Latin jazz shuffle on this Bobo original, with its mix of Spanish and English vocals, is an obvious touchstone to cuts like "Evil Ways" on Santana's first two albums. What a shame, then, that the rest of the record is primarily comprised of covers of pop hits of the day like "It's Not Unusual" (a vocal and an instrumental version!).
