Joe Castro’s San Jose's Mojo is a bonus recording to the boxed set "Passion Flower - For Doris Duke" (Sunnyside SSC 1393) that is available digitally. The release features a number of loose but entertaining jam sessions held at Falcon Lair with former members of the San Jose based Allyn Ferguson’s Chamber Jazz Sextet, which had broken up after touring with poet Kenneth Patchen. Vocalist Ann Richards (Stan Kenton's wife) can be heard to colorful effect on four tracks.
