Charanga-Rama

CD (Item 605069) Montuno, 1999 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


5.00 6

Contemporary charanga from Bongo-Logic – and a set that's got a crisp edge that goes even farther than older albums of this nature! The production is excellent – razor-sharp, yet never in a smooth way – just with a strong ear for the deft musical interplay between percussion, violin, and flute – all quick-stepping together with soaring lead vocals from singer Freddy Crespo! The great Art Webb handles all the flute – with the soulful undercurrents we've always loved in his music – and titles include "Cangui Compay!", "Si Tu Quieres", "Charanga Rama", "El Congo Colonial", and "Cha-Rhumba Sabroso".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Bwana
Acid Symposium, 1972. New Copy
An insanely wonderful bit of Latin funk! The groove is super heavy, and falls somewhere in between NuYorican soul and Chicano Power rock – with a sound that's pretty close to Black Sugar, but a little bit more psychedelic, due to the heavy guitars and keyboards in the grooves. Hard congas ... CD

CD...$5.99 16.98

Gordy (Japan), 1980. New Copy
A stone classic from Switch – one of Motown's leading hopes in the early 80s soul scene, and for good reason too! These guys have a wonderfully well-rounded approach – great on ballads and even more compelling on groovers – a balance here that puts them proudly in the company of ... CD

Cold Blooded
Gordy (Japan), 1983. New Copy
Another stone winner from Rick James' early 80s run for Motown – a set that follows strongly on territory opened up by previous records – especially that bass-heavy approach to funk! The record's maybe not as stone classic as others, but still is way tighter and more put-together than ... CD

Lovesmith
Motown/Universal (Japan), 1981. New Copy
Great group soul from the early 80s Motown years – a stellar set from Michael Smith and the Lovesmith group – the quartet he sung with before moving on as a solo act with the group's name in place of his own surname! Michael previously worked in The Smith Connection group in the 70s, ... CD
