4.80 6

Killer sounds from Cortjio and his classic combo – a group who really helped to redefine the sound of Latin music in the 60s! The group here is at their early best – working with bold vocals from Ismael Rivera right up front – in a mix of tracks that definitely lives up tot he "lo mejor" promise on the cover – killer numbers that include "Druma Cuyi", "Di Donde Estas Severa", "Moliendo Cafe", "Oriza", and "El Retorno De La Cucaracha".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sabor Cubano
Rumba, Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$9.99 12.99
Great Cuban grooves, with some heavy trumpet in the lead – as you'd guess from the sparkling cover of this vintage album! The set's got a nice raw feel throughout – and the strong use of lead trumpet almost gives some of the cuts the feel of Dizzy Gillespie's cubop experiments from the ... CD
Maype, Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$9.99 12.99
Classic Cuban jazz material from the group of trumpeter Rolando Aquilo – done in a style that's a bit tighter than some of the other Jam Session albums from the time, but still plenty darn great! Rolando's trumpet is firmly in the lead on most tracks, but the overall presentation is still ... CD
Rough Guide, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD
A wicked little set that really gets at the way that Latin record collecting has moved way past the usual sounds from New York, Puerto Rico, and Cuba – to embrace a whole host of styles from around the globe! In a world of collections that feature oft-reissued numbers from the Fania catalog, ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1965. New Copy
Mongo Santamaria at the height of his Latin Soul years – working on a cool Columbia session titled after an earlier hit, but served up with his new lean sound of the late 60s! The album's got that perfect Santamaria combo from the time – a group that features trumpet and these ... CD
Latin Jam
Fania/Uniko (Canada), 1965. New Copy
The title's no lie – as the album's one of Pacheo's hardest-swinging albums! The set is miles away from the more composed style of Pacheco's charanga years – and has him really opening up with a descarga style that has lots of jazzy touches. Jose Chombo Silva plays some great tenor on ... CD
Asi Se Compone Un Son
Fania, 1973. New Copy
A key early moment for the great Ismael Rivera – really stepping out here strongly with a tight group of his own! Ismael's in the lead on vocals, but his arrangements for the group are quite strong too – cast in that best mix of jazz and Latin roots that you'll find in forward-thinking ... CD
Kubaney/Uniko (Canada), Mid 60s. New Copy
A lost little album from Latin flute legend Fajardo – and easily one of his grooviest records ever! Fajardo's probably best known for his charanga recordings of the early 60s – but this smoking set has the reedman stepping out wonderfully on a host of Latin Soul tunes to rival the best ... CD
Grupo De Experimentacion Sonora Del ICAIC Vol 2
Egrem (Cuba), Early 70s. New Copy
A really amazing session from this groundbreaking Cuban group – hard to describe accurately in words, and done with a really evocative feel that's way beyond the colder sounds you might guess from the "experimental" in their name! Instead, the vibe here is really warm and ... CD
Ahi Na Ma
Uniko (Canada), 1958. New Copy
Really lively work from Roberto Faz – just the kind of sweet combo work that made his music so great! Roberto feels like he's a few years ahead of the rest of the pack here – still sometimes working in a lusher mode with his band, but often hitting these moments with a sharper punch, ... CD
La Muerte Llego
ARO/Uniko (Canada), 1960. New Copy
An early 60s killer from Enrique Jorrin – just the kind of Cuban-born grooves we really love from the time! The group's got a lively charanga feel, with violin in the lead sometimes as much as the vocals – stepping over lively rhythms with bold piano on most numbers, in this style that' ... 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
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1954. New Copy
The album definitely lives up to the title, and features the mighty Jack Teagarden in a number of small group settings – all with a straight ahead punch that gets away from some of the gimmicks of his other 50s sessions! Teagarden's trombone is still one of the sharpest instruments of his ... CD
