Pachanga Y Algo Mas

CD (Item 604538) Maype, Early 60s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.70 6

Pachanga and plenty more – thanks to a nice blend of rhythms that really make the album sparkle! Instrumentation is heavy on horns, and not the usual mix you might expect from a pachanga album – and the percussion kicks along strongly on most numbers, grooving a good number of tracks in a montuno mode! And although there's a few boleros, even these have a nice edge – kind of a harder bottom than usual, which makes them well worth checking out. Titles include "La Pachanga", "Retozon", "Quedate Como Estas", "A La Timba", "La Mujer Puertorriquena", "Cuando Tu Me Quieras", "Para Gozar Cubita", "Cha Cha Cha Bururu", and "Feliz Ilusion".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Lluvia Con Sol
Disco De Hoy, 2013. New Copy
These guys just keep getting better and better – and this time around, they've got such a tight groove, it's hard not to compare the group with some of the best of the 70s salsa generation! Rhythms are right on the money, and the instrumentation is completely sublime – very jazzy, with ... CD

Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1973. New Copy
A really special record from a really special group – one of two sublime 70s gems from Azteca – a wicked blend of jazz, funk, Latin, and soul – all put together by a young Coke Escovedo! Coke's ostensibly the leader of the group, but there's also a richly collaborative feel going ... CD

Montuno, 1987. New Copy
CD...$9.99 13.99
Afro Caribbean Jazz – but with a good dose of New York Latin as well – just the kind of wonderful blend we'd expect from Batacumbele on a classic like this! All tracks are nice and long, and are recorded with an open, free-flowing energy that was hardly used in Latin music at the time ... CD

CuBop/Ubiquity, 2000. New Copy
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, ... CD

Universal (Brazil), 2013. New Copy
Caetano Veloso looks like a bit of an old geezer on the back cover of this live set – but damn if he isn't still one of the most exciting talents in the world, even alongside most of the contemporary generation too! The performance is a concert that's very much in the spirit of the studio ... CD
