Sam Booker is a Latin-sounding tune from the new 5-track EP CD ‘Nothing Too Deep’ by Portmanteaux who are based in Melbourne, Australia. This tune was written by keyboardist Steve Malkin and features Hammond organ and a theremin-sounding solo from Steve in the outro section of this track. Sounds a bit like Booker T & The MGs. The core band is supplemented on this track by the great percussionist Salvador Persico.
