Cumbia, descarga and hard salsa-inspired sounds from Colombia – more specifically, the coastal town of Cartagena – a great set material produced by Jose Maria "Curro" Fuentes!

Brooklyn SoundsBrooklyn Sounds ... CD
Salsa International, Early 70s. New Copy .... $12.99 13.98
Proof that hard Latin didn't always happen on the uptown scene – and a self-titled cooker from this legendary combo from Brooklyn! The record's a killer all the way through – done with some very deep, dark trombone that colors the session like the best of Johnny Colon's material from the late 60s – inflected with some brighter salsa moments in the rhythms, but all very focused and tightly held together by the rhythms! In addition to the trombone, the piano is especially nice – and other instrumentation includes a bit of organ and plenty of percussion. Most numbers have vocals – and titles include "Guaguanco De Puerto Rico", "Perdicion", "En Las Tumbas", "Rain", and "Sueltame Ya". CD

Har-You Percussion GroupHar-You Percussion Group – Sounds Of The Ghetto Youth (plus bonus track) ... CD
ESP, 1969. New Copy .... $10.99 15.99
A legendary bit of Latin from the New York scene of the 60s – recorded by a host of youthful players working under the direction of percussionist Montego Joe! The group's name is a contraction of "Harlem Youth" – a program in which all players participated, as part of an effort to get kids involved in music uptown – spearheaded by Montego Joe, whose guidance in the set is greatly appreciated! There's a strong Latin Soul vibe running through the set – but one that's different than Joe's other work, a bit more rootsy at times, given all the percussion in the lineup – but warmed up nicely with bits of guitar, trumpet, and alto sax. The album's filled with great groovers – including the classic "Welcome To The Party Jam", and the amazing "Oua-Train" jazz cut, which has a slightly spiritual feel. Other tracks include "Feed Me Good", "Barrets Bag", "Tico", "Har-You Theme", "Ngoma", and "Santa Cruz". CD features a bonus track – "Montego Joe's Har-You Postscript 2008". CD

New Tono Quirazco Y Su Show CartierA Ritmo De Boogaloo (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Orfeon (Mexico), 1967. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A fantastic batch of boogaloo beat from Tono Quirazco – done with a blend of other influences from Motown, to reggae, to psychedelic and garage rock – still very much in the rhythmic groove of the boogaloo! The sound is just plain wonderful, tight and uptempo with cheerful vocals, pulpy bits of organ, and sublime groove overall! The diverse influences blend beautifully into a cohesive groove, with titles that include "Aprieta Arriba", "Asi Me Gusta", "Veronica", "Pulpa De Tamarindo", "Bugulu", "Punctacon", "Hey", "Pikina", "Tiempo De Verano", Zapatero Remendon" and more! CD
(Comes a great little LP style sleeve!)

New VariousSaoco Vol 2 – Bomba, Plena, & The Roots Of Salsa In Puerto Rico 1955 to 1967 ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from the Puerto Rican scene of the 60s – a key link between the music of Cuba and New York – and an outlet that became even more important after the fall of Havana! Back in the day, there was steady traffic between San Juan and uptown New York – as styles traded, grooves emerged, and whole worlds of Latin music grew into place in the process – showing a new, youthful style that was especially heavy on percussion – and which often had a much tighter small group approach that was quite a contrast to the bigger orchestras of the previous generation! The Puerto Rican groove was crucial in kicking off the Latin Soul generation, and the salsa one as well – and the music here is from a host of indie labels who really had an ear to the underground in these key years – and came up with plenty of greatness in the process. The double-length package is a great retrospective of these years – and features detailed notes in English and Spanish, lots of great images, and a smoking set of 28 tracks that includes "Que Culpa Tengo Yo" by Chivirico, "La Vieja Voladora" by Chuito El De Bayamon, "Guaracha Y Cha Cha Cha" by Moncho Lena, "Moliendo Cafe" by Cortijo, "Arrabalera" by Tonin Romero, "Muchachita Lozana" by Odilo Gonzalez, "Tras Tres Tragos" by Mario Ortiz, "Dolores" by Joe Cotto, "Candela" by Ramito, "Kijis Konar" by Mon Rivera, and "Que Chevere" by Kito Velez.
