Two massive records from Ray Barretto – both from a time when he was really opening up his groove! Eye Of The Beholder is a really wonderful album from Barretto – more jazz fusion than his usual 70s salsa – but in a way that we really really love! The album's a crossover gem ... read more CD

Rene BlochMucho Rock ... CD
Andex/VSOP, 1958. New Copy ... $7.99 11.99
Rene Bloch is probably best known for his work in a straighter Latin vein, but this excellent set from the late 50s has him "rocking" it up a bit with some really heavy sax! The approach is totally great – one that uses heavy Latin percussion on the bottom (played by Mongo ... read more CD

BwanaBwana ... CD
Acid Symposium, 1972. New Copy ... $8.99
An insanely wonderful bit of Latin funk!

Hard congas ... read more CD

A landmark record that should be in any Latin collection!

A roots-oriented 70s classic from Willie Colon – one of his standout albums of the decade! Willie continues his "life of crime" approach for the early 70s – moving into an old west look on the cover, and matching that with a slightly rootsier sound on the album! The real ... read more CD
