New Johnny ColonBoogaloo Blues (remastered edition) ... CD
Cotique/Fania, 1967. New Copy ... $9.99 10.99
A landmark record that should be in any Latin collection! At the time of this album, Johnny Colon was a young trombonist just getting his start – working in the turbulent late 60s Spanish Harlem scene, and picking up on the wide range of styles going down in the hood. At one level, he was a straight player with a love for the sound of the early 60s descarga era – but at another, he was a young kid absorbing all the soul, funk, and drug influences that were coming out of other groups at the time. The result is a really amazing album with a slow, sinister groove that's unlike anything else we can think of. Tracks roll over one another with uncanny beats and a sad and soulful feel – shifting between English and Spanish to reflect the speech patterns of the members of the band – and really opening up with some killer grooves that have made the album a treasure for years! Titles include "Judy (part 2)", "Canallon", "Jumpy", "Boogaloo Blues", "Descarga", and "Mi Querida Bomba". CD

New Tino ContrerasEl Jazz Mexicano De Tino Contreras ... CD
Jazzman (UK), Late 60s. Used ... $11.99
Mindblowing music from Mexican drummer Tino Contreras – a cat who works in a very unique blend of jazz and Latin styles! The tunes here go way way past the obvious – and do start out with a bit of New York and Cuban energy, yet quickly take off into wonderfully unusual territory that's all Tino's own – hints of exotica in the instrumentation, unusual inflections in the arrangements, and complicated drum parts that go way past just Latin dancefloor modes! The blend is amazing – unlike any other localized Latin styles of the 60s, and very much in the jazz mode promised in the title – yet also so heavenly and haunting, it also goes way past standard jazz too. With a collection like this, Contreras may finally get the credit due him as a unique musical visionary – an artist we might well rank up there with Mulatu, Salah Ragab, or a rare few other cross-cultural creators! Titles include "Ravi Shankar", "Orbita", "Santo", "La Malaguena", "Orfeo En Los Tambores", "Kyrie", "Visnu", "Jazz En El Cairo", and "Credo". CD

Fania All-StarsLive At The Red Garter Vol 2 ... LP
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A Latin soul party – beyond compare! The album's a completely wonderful live set that really captures the energy, excitement, and warm sociability of the hip New York scene at the end of the 60s. The music is stunning – a freewheeling blend of jazz, soul, and Latin themes – played with effortless ease by a lineup that includes Joe Bataan, Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Larry Harlow, Bobby Quesada, Louie Ramirez, Ralph Robles, and some of the other heavy-hitters of the Latin soul years. (Just imagine trying to get so many jazz or rock talents together on one stage – it would never happen!) The album's incredible – and even the spoken introductions and crowd noise really help set the feel of the era's mighty magic power! Titles on this second volume include "Kikapoo Joy Juice", "If This World Were Mine", "Richie's Bag", "Red Garter Strut", and "Son Cuero Y Boogaloo". Firey stuff, and one of their best records!

New Bobby Vince PaunettoModern Sound Of Bobby Paunetto/El Sonido Moderno ... LP
Madri Gras, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of our favorite Latin jazz albums ever – and a truly amazing record! Bobby Pauntteo, aka Bobby Vince Paunetto, is probably best known for his groundbreaking Latin fusion albums of the NuYorican era – but this rare gem from the 60s shows that he was a really forward thinker, even at a younger age! The sound is incredibly hard to define – a blend of modal jazz, Latin rhythms, and a uniquely lyrical approach to the percussion that makes the record take off to places you'd never expect. Bobby's conception is mindblowing from start to finish – and the record's even got some wonderful tracks that feature English vocals on top of the hip vibes-driven sound of the instrumentation. A gem throughout – and the kind of record we'll take to the grave! Titles include "Aguantando", "Why Is Woody Sad?", "Mambo Sevilla", "El Senor Sid", and "Dig It Like It Is". Great stuff!

New Francisco AguabellaH2O ... CD
CuBop/Ubiquity, 1999. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest new albums from this legendary conga player! Although Francisco Aquabella is probably best known to Dusty Groove customers for his 70's funk classic "Hitting Hard", or his work with the group Malo – in recent years, he's emerged as quite an important player on the Latin jazz scene, and is starting to return to the recording scene in a strong way. This album slightly predates Aguabella's current efforts for Cubop, but it's a similar session, with an excellent Latin jazz groove, and a moody mellow feel that shows Aquabella's heritage as a west coast Latin player. Charles Owens is in the band on reeds, and most of the tracks are instrumentals, with only occasional vocal choruses. The Latin Jazz component of the album is very very strong – and this is a totally satisfying session throughout! Titles include "Short History", "Intensity", "Wood Place", and "Nena". CD
