New Puerto Rico All StarsPuerto Rico All Stars ... CD
Pras/Combo, 1976. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A Puerto Rican equivalent of the Fania and Alegre All Stars – and a group that works with equally hard-driving energy! The overall format is mighty tight – a great trumpet and trombone section, perched nicely on heavy rhythms from a group that features Papo Lucas on piano, Tony Sanchez on drums, and Endel Dueno on timbales – all players who really help the album cook nicely, and give things a really solid grounding, no matter what the style of the tunes. The first cut's an instrumental, but most others feature vocals – by singers who include Andy Montanez, Luigi Texidor, and Marvin Santiago – trading off vocals from tune to tune. There's some great jazz inflections from the horn section at times – especially on the album's great instrumental reading of the Miles Davis tune "Budo" – and other titles include "Canto A Borinquen", "Changuiri", "A Mi Manera", "Introduccion Puerto Rico All Stars", and "Reunion En La Cima".

New KakoPuerto Rican All-Stars Featuring Kako ... LP
Alegre, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A smoking descarga session from the 60s – one of the best albums ever by percussionist Kako! The album explodes with wonderful jazzy playing, and features 4 very long tracks that are stuffed with great solo work on piano and sax – bubbling over in heavy percussive excitement, with the best Latin jam session feel of the 60s! Tracks include "Descarga En Puerto Rico", "Abaniguito", "La Tombola", and "El Pollo" – and the whole thing's stormin' – a must-have album in any book! LP, Vinyl record album
