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 percussion, and really pushing the group through a great blend of English and Spanish language numbers! The whole thing's great – easily one of the best by the group – and titles include "Be Free", "El Exigente", "That Groovy Shingaling", "Mess Around", "Freak Off", and "Groovin' to the Afro-Twist".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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!

Chant
Prestige/Tru Sound, 1962. New Copy (reissue)
One of the best albums ever recorded by this groundbreaking Latin jazz combo – and a magnificent blend of jazz instrumentation and deeper Latin roots!

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 ...

Boogaloo Blues
Cotique, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A landmark record that should be in any Latin collection! At the time of this album, Johnny Colon was a young trombonist just getting his start – working in the turbulent late 60s Spanish Harlem scene, and picking up on the wide range of styles going down in the hood. At one level, he was a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lenni Sesar
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A lost slammer from the Fania catalog of the 60s – the one and only album from the highly dynamic Lenni Sesar! Lenni's got a sound that's quite different from other Latin leaders of his time – very jazzy overall, especially on the uptempo numbers on the set – with a really full ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A real turning point for Joe Bataan – and the beginning of his funky Latin sound of the 70s!

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

Cotique, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
One of the best boogaloo sessions of the late 60s – and an early expression of genius from Johnny Colon!
