Killer 70's material from Mongo, featuring a funky Latin groove tinged with some excellent electric playing on bass and Fender Rhodes. The record includes some of Mongo's best cuts from the time – like "Jelly Belly", "The Good Doctor", and the incredible "Happy As A Fat Rat In A Cheese Factory". Also features a great modern reading of "Manteca"! (Cover has some light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Red Hot
Tappan Zee, 1979. Very Good+ Gatefold
Sweet fusiony work by Mongo Santamaria – the New York Latin sound inflected with major label jazzed-up electricity, in the style that was also employed by Ray Barretto and the Fania All Stars at the same time.

Mongo '70
Atlantic, 1970. Very Good-
A killer set from Mongo Santamaria – one of his first albums on Atlantic, and a record that really keeps up the groove of his Columbia sides!

Heat!
Prestige, 1968. Good+
Brilliant work – and one of Pucho's greatest albums ever! This one really gets all the elements right – from Latin jazz, to boogaloo soul, to some of that funkiness that was creeping into the group's work at the time. The fantastic Pazant Brothers (Eddie & Al) are on sax and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fania, 1974. Very Good- Gatefold
After a disasterous attempt at recording a live show, the Fania All-Stars went in the studio with guests like Billy Cobham and Manu Dibango and created their funkiest album of the seventies. Although a few cuts are more Latin sounding, some of these tracks have a nice hard funky jazz feel, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bossa Nova
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Very Good
Very nice, very tight little bossa nova set by Eddie Harris from his early days at Vee Jay! The groove is very open, and Eddie's still at the stage where he can really cut the stuff. His solos ring out hard and cold above some great Lalo Schifrin arrangements, and Lalo also plays piano on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Infant Eyes
Muse, 1979. Very Good-
An overlooked Hammond slammer from Charles Earland – cut at a time when he was working on more electric keyboards for other labels. The set's a killer all the way through – very much in the best early 70s Prestige Records mode – with long tracks that really jam, and a lineup that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Smoke Some Kill
Jive, 1988. Very Good+
Not quite the classic of the first two albums, but still dope all the way through, with Code Money on the turntables. Includes the title track, "No More Rock N' Roll", "Mr. Big Dick", and "Signifying Rapper", an adaptation of the traditional Signifying Monkey. LP, Vinyl record album

Glades, 1974. Very Good
Pure genius from the legendary Latimore – and a record that's a perfect illustration of the way the man could effortlessly mix blues roots, southern soul, and a whole new Miami groove for the 70s! The record is easily one of Latimore's best – and has these vocals that grab us right ... LP, Vinyl record album
