New VariousNYC Salsa 3 – The Incendiary Sound Of Latin New York ... CD
Fania, 1970s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
New York's on fire with this cooking batch of salsa tracks from the 70s – mostly numbers pulled from the catalog of the mighty Fania Records, plus some of the other smaller imprints who've come under its wing! The music here is the stuff that pushed Fania over the top at the time – bold, beautiful Latin grooves that are filled with righteous power, enough so to extend far past their NYC origins, to a much larger audience worldwide. As with other volumes in the series, the track list is very well-chosen, and the package is equally well done overall – and the CD features a total of 16 tracks that include "Papa Boco" by Latin Tempo, "Baila Que Baila" by Tipica 73, "Asi Son Bongo" by Chamaco Ramirez, "Con Su Permiso" by Hector Rivera, "Avisale" by La Muralla, "Aprovechate" by Orquesta Flamboyan, "Los Cabezones" by Tommy Olivencia, "Enamorado" by Los Kimbos, "Mi Timbal" by Ray Rodriguez, and "De Se Mismo Trago" by Pete Bonet & Louie Ramirez.

New VariousFurther Adventures Of Mod Jazz ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Possibly the greatest installment so far in this wonderfully groovy series – a set of hard-swinging soul jazz tracks from the 60s – most of them the sort you might find blasting out of a jukebox in the backroom of some southside bar! Heavy Hammond, tremendous tenor, and gritty guitar lines abound – all upbeat and groovy, almost funky at times – served up in 2 or 3 minute installments from a batch of rare 45s! There's echoes here of the instrumental grooves that play big on the popcorn soul scene, but other work is more jazz-based overall – and although a few tunes have vocals, the biggest focus here is on instrumental numbers. Wonderful stuff throughout – and a collection we'll be playing for years! Titles include "Bash Dance" by Bobby Donaldson, "Arabian Jerk" by The Merits, "La La La La La" by Afro Blues Quintet, "Take Off Your Shoes (part 1)" by Booker T Averhart & The Mustangs, "Hung Over" by The Martinis, "Senor Blues" by Dee Clarke, "Sweet Bread" by Miles Grayson Trio, "All Around The World" by Chuck Higgins, "COD" by Albert King, "Fredrick's Dream" by Kenny Rice & Leo's Five, and "Tam-A-Rind" by Hank Jacobs & The TKOs.
