Su Estillo Y Su Ritmo

CD (Item 601285) Ansonia, Mid 60s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.60 6

Cortijo's style is always filled with "ritmo" – especially at this point in his career – that lively, youthful stretch when his combo just couldn't miss! The groove here gets going right from the start – with a focus much more on the bottom end of the music than you'd hear from lots of other 60s Latin groups – an almost-gritty approach that certainly helped set the scene for the Latin Soul generation to come, if not the 70s salsa scene too! Titles include "El Zapato", "La Llave", "No Puedo Mas", "El Barbero", "Lo Dijo Cortijo", "El Nene Lo Tengo Yo", and "La Timadora" – a "ritmo oriza" that has a really rootsy groove!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

King Conga
CuBop/Ubiquity, 1999. New Copy
A killer album of Latin jazz tracks! This is most likely the best album that Johnny Blas has cut for the Cubop label – and it's stone solid all the way through. Johnny's playing here with his new band – and most of the tracks have a nice stripped-down lineup that features piano, conga ... CD
