CD


4.50 6

A classic 70s salsa jammer from Willie Colon – working here with his best vocalist ever, Ruben Blades, back before he'd crossed over to super-huge success! The album really marked a departure for Willie – moving past the bad boy style of earlier records, that kind of "tough guy in the hood" look – into a mode that was more open to other Latin scenes, and which marked an even greater rise to Latin stardom. Titles include "Dime", "Plastico", "Buscando Guyaba", "Maria Lionza", "Ojos", and "Siembra".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

CD...$9.99 10.98

Rhythm Machine
Columbia/Discos 605, 1977. New Copy
One of the proudest moments of the New York Latin underground – a time when some of its best players wound up playing for Columbia, through a brief affiliation between Fania and the larger label! And although you might think that the album would totally sell out the group's best points, it's ... CD
Bwana
Acid Symposium, 1972. New Copy
An insanely wonderful bit of Latin funk! The groove is super heavy, and falls somewhere in between NuYorican soul and Chicano Power rock – with a sound that's pretty close to Black Sugar, but a little bit more psychedelic, due to the heavy guitars and keyboards in the grooves. Hard congas ... CD
My Own Image
Latin Percussion Ventures, 1978. New Copy
CD...$6.99 16.95
A hell of a trumpeter – making his debut here on one of the grooviest albums on the legendary Latin Percussion label! The session's a bit fuller than some of the other LP albums – a crackling blend of jazz, funk, and Latin rhythms – warm, but with some pretty complicated moments, ... CD
Authority
Latin Percussion Ventures, 1976. New Copy
CD...$6.99 16.95
A stunner of an album – and a really unique Latin percussion jam from the 70s! The session's headed by the legendary Carlos Patato Valdez – who arguably sounds better here than on any of his earlier albums – as he's working with a really fluid, open groove – achieved in the ... CD

Latin Percussion Ventures, 1979. New Copy
CD...$6.99 11.99

Irakere 2
Columbia/Uniko (Canada), 1980. New Copy
The second Columbia album for this amazing Cuban combo – and a record that really helped get the talents of Irakere a lot of overdue exposure here in the US! The record's surprisingly tight – especially for a major label effort of the time – really committed to the deepest sides ... CD
El Party
United Artists/West Side Latino, Early 70s. New Copy
A crack set of early 70s Latin, played by "the cream of New York" – a group that includes Louie Ramirez on piano, vibes, and organ, and Mauricio Smith on flute and sax! The whole album's pretty darn great, with a really strong jazzy touch – thanks to great work by Ramirez and ... CD
East 101
Nimbus, 1981. New Copy
A dream of a record from the LA spiritual underground of the 70s – and one of the only records we've ever seen from reedman Gary Bias! The date's got a soulful depth that makes it one of the most compelling albums on the legendary Nimbus label – a rhythmic pulse that's often modal, and ... CD
Flight 17
Nimbus, 1978. New Copy
One of the best Horace Tapscott albums on Nimbus – and one that features him playing with the Pan-African Peoples Arkestra, who give the session a much fuller feel than some of Horace's other sparer sets. The group's made up of some strong hip players from the LA underground – and in a ... CD

Nimbus, 1988. New Copy
Pianist Curtis Clark works here with a host of European players – Andy Sheppard on reeds, Ernst Reijseger on cello, and Erns Glerum on bass, as well as legendary South African drummer Louis Moholo – in a batch of darkly-tinged free jazz tracks that include "Boo Related", " ... CD
Journey Into Nigritia
Nimbus, 1983. New Copy
A lost spiritual soul jazz classic – recorded in the early 80s, but with the feel of 70s independent work on labels like Strata East or Black Jazz! Pianist Nate Morgan's got a widely expansive vision – working here in a style that incorporates lots of blocky chords and modal grooves, ... CD
