His musical experience began with street corner doo wop in the s, and came to include one of the first rap records to hit the charts, 's "Rap-O, Clap-O. His music career followed a pair Joe Bataan Rap O Clap O stints in Coxsackie State Prison. Self-taught on the piano, he organized his first band in and scored his first recording success in with "Gypsy Woman" on Fania Records.
The tune was a hit with the New York Latin market despite its English lyrics sung by Bataanand exemplified the nascent Latin soul sound. In early anticipation of the disco formula, "Gypsy Woman" created dance energy by alternating what was fundamentally a pop-soul tune with a break featuring double-timed handclaps. Bataan would take this tendency even further on his influential Salsoulwhich fused funk and Latin influences in slick yet soulful orchestrations.
Salsoul remains influential as a rare groove cult item, and pointed to the future at the time of its release. The LP embodied the artist's highly deliberate and culturally aware musical concept.
Bataan theorized the '70s next big thing as a hybrid: an Afro Cuban rhythm section playing Brazilian influenced patterns over orchestral funk.
