A monster! If you buy one Latin record this year – make it this one – because it's one of the greatest ever recorded! Ray's late 60s Acid album is a landmark recording – a sublime mixture of Latin jazz, percussion, and soul – grooving hard in a variety of styles, and always hitting the money on every single track. The title cut "Acid" is one of those tunes you'll be playing until you're locked up in a nursing home – and the rest of the record is equally great – with cuts like the bouncy groover "Soul Drummers", the tasty boogaloo "El Nuevo Barretto", and the extended "Espiritu Libre", a great Latin jazz track, with very "out" piano!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Message
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
One of Ray Barretto's hardest-hitting salsa albums of the 70s – a raw set of grooves that's got Ray moving away from the playfulness of the Latin Soul years, into a more righteous mode that's easily guessed at from the title of the set! The vibe here is very straightforward – with Ray ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tell It Like It Is!
Decca/El Sonido, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A heck of a great little boogaloo album – and one of the few 60s sides by the legendary Johnny Zamot! Although cut for Decca, the album's every bit as tight and soulful as contemporaneous work for Tico, Fania, or Cotique – and the set features a similar blend of English lyrics, Latin ...

Tough!
Prestige, 1966. New Copy (reissue)
Killer Latin soul from Pucho and crew – and an album that's one of their greatest! The record is also one of the earliest by the group, and it features a different lineup than later ones – with William Bivens on vibes, Claude Bartee on tenor, and Vince McEwan on trumpet. There's a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album

El Exigente
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A stunning album from Orquesta Harlow – one of their wildest of the 60s, and filled with delights! The record starts with this strange sound of a train pulling into a station, then rolls into a massive boogaloo groove that really sets the pace for the album – hitting hard with some ...

Heavy Smokin
Fania, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A great early record by Larry Harlow's famous combo – every bit the "smokin" set that the title might imply! Harlow and the group are in full force here – ripping through a set of short tracks that really groove with a darkly percussive edge. There's a surprising amount of ... LP, Vinyl record album

In Line/En Linia
Fania, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A killer bit of Latin Soul – one of the few albums ever recorded by conga player George Guzman, working here with a very cool, very hip, late 60s ensemble! The group sport 3 trumpets, piano, bass, and some very strong percussion – plus vocals in both English and Spanish, which makes ... LP, Vinyl record album

CuBop/Ubiquity, 2000. New Copy 2LP
Some of the best recent Latin Jazz around – all tied up in one slick package by those crafty folks at Cubop! In a world of silly "fake" Latin remake projects, Cubop's delivered some of the best straight Latin around – taking older giants and getting them back in the studio, ... LP, Vinyl record album

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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chulo, 2013. New Copy
A contemporary Latin combo, but one with a really unique feel as well – a mix of 60s charanga modes, 50s Cuban roots, and some definite modern phrasing! The group has a really wonderful blend of flute, violin, trombone, tres, and percussion – and congolero Hector "Papote" ... LP, Vinyl record album
