Ray BarrettoLa Cuna ... CD
CTI (Japan), 1981. New Copy .... $13.99
A nice jammer from the "second wind" period of CTI – and a strong return to Latin jazz for Ray! The set's a great mixture of smooth CTI electric funk and Latin-oriented grooves – and it features work by Ray on congas and percussion, plus a list of players that includes Tito Puente, Charlie Palmieri, Steve Gadd, John Tropea, Carlos Franzetti, and Willie Torres. The melds the styles beautifully – with plenty of languid, rubbery jamming with percussion that thumps just hard enough! Really kind of a stunner from '79 – one that came at welcome time for both Barretto and CTI! Includes the great electric Latin groover "Mambotango", plus "The Old Castle", "La Cuna", and a sublime vocal remake of Stevie Wonder's "Pastime Paradise"! CD

New BatacumbeleAfro Caribbean Jazz ... CD
Montuno, 1987. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Afro Caribbean Jazz – but with a good dose of New York Latin as well – just the kind of wonderful blend we'd expect from Batacumbele on a classic like this! All tracks are nice and long, and are recorded with an open, free-flowing energy that was hardly used in Latin music at the time – a mode that hearkens back to the jam sessions of the descarga generation, and some of the most creative modes of the 70s modernists as well! Like the best of those artists, Batacumbele has a way of weaving old traditions into something new – working complex musical patterns, but with a quality that's right on the money, right away – really grabbing you in, and holding you rapt throughout! The jazz aspect of this record is even higher than most of their other sessions – with trumpet from Tommy Villarini, trombone from William Cepeda, tenor and flute from Hector Veneros, keyboards from Amuni Nacer and Arturo Ortiz, and lots of great percussion from Angel Cachete Maldonado and other members of the group! Includes long instrumental numbers "May Day" and "Hot Blood", plus a cover of Horace Silver's "Nutville" – and the vocal track "Cachita". CD

New VariousIt's A Scream How Levine Does The Rhumba – The Latin/Jewish Musical Story 1940s to 1980s ... CD
Idelsohn Society, Late 40s/1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD .... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest collections of Latin music we've ever seen – and one of the first to really demonstrate the importance of the Jewish market during the postwar years! The New York scene wasn't just fed by a hotbed of Cuban and Puerto Rican customers – and Jewish listeners were a key part of its success in the 40s, 50s, and 60s – especially as a rising middle class found new time to enjoy itself both at clubs in the city and resorts up in the Catskills! The Jewish/Latin connection has been a big part of recording from the start – no real secret to anyone who's been buying Latin records for years – but this package goes out of its way to bring it all into sharp focus, with a really big booklet of notes, and a revolutionary selection of tracks that traces different elements through a variety of different Latin styles, plus a few other genres as well. Easily one of the most playful, powerful packages so far from the excellent Idelsohn Society – with 41 tracks that include "Exodus" by Ray Barretto, "Hava Nageela" by Celia Cruz, "El Molestoso" by Eddie Palmieri, "Cheek To Cheek" by Candido, "Arriba (part 1)" by The Barton Brothers, "Miami Beach Rhumba" by Xavier Cugat, "Matzoh Ball Merengue" by Jonny Conquet, "Pan Amor Y Cha Cha Cha" by Abbe Lane & Tito Puente, "My Yiddishe Mambo" by Mickey Katz, "Cucaraca Macara" by Harvey Averne, "Just Another Guajira" by Mark Weinstein, "America" by La Lupe, "Twist Of Hava Nageela" by Perez Prado, "Loco" by Don Tosii with Raul Diaz, and "Raleigh Riff" by La Plata Sextet.

New Abelardo CarbonoEl Maravilloso Mundo De Abelardo Carbono – Psychedelia, Afroroots & Champeta In 1980s Barranquilla ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), 1980s. New Copy Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
Mindblowing sounds from the one of the originators of Colombian champeta – a mad musician who's able to bring together a huge array of sounds into one very unique groove! The collection crackles with energy right from the very first note – then explodes into a musical frenzy that includes Latin rhythms, psychedelic production, African-styled guitar lines, Caribbean rootsy percussion, and lots lots more – all wrapped together with the kind of skittish, restless approach that can often make Colombian recordings so great! There's a raw sound to many of the tracks – a vibe that feels more like the earlier years of Disco Fuentes than most other 80s recordings – and the set's got great notes on Abelardo and his music, and a batch of titles that includes "Muevela", "Viajando", "La Playa", "Baile Del Indio", "La Negra Kulengue", "Ejen En Acordeon", "Oye Muje Muje", "Guiero A Mi Gente", "Guana Tangula", and "A Otro Perro Con Ese Hueso".
