LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 6

Massive work from the great Bobby Valentin – his first-ever album, issued back when he was a jazzy trumpeter! The record offers the "best in boogaloo" – as the cover states – and features a very mod mix of tunes that really gets at the mish-mash crossover energy of the Spanish Harlem scene of the late 60s! Highlights include the very groovy "Batman's Boogaloo", a reworking of the "Batman" theme; a hard driving remake of the hit "Good Lovin", one that really exposes its Latin roots; a driving descarga number called "The Gate"; a Latin jazz remake of "Song For My Father"; and the super-hip, super-swingin tune "Geronimo" – a Latin soul winner all the way through!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Alegre, 1960. New Copy (reissue)
A masterpiece of Latin jazz – and one of the truest expressions of the genre we can think of! The album's quite unique, especially for the time – a spare, stripped-down presentation of Latin-influenced jazz – a sound that has its roots in the cubop experiments of a decade before, ...
