CD


4.50 6

Moncho Lena really cooks here on timbales – leading a tight little combo that easily rivals Tito Puente's group of the time! There's a jazzy flourish to most numbers here – as the group is driven by Moncho's rhythms, then opens up on trumpet and piano! Hector Rivera handles the keys, with a bold energy that's mighty nice – and Mon Rivera sings on a good deal of numbers too. Titles include "Alo Quien Nama", "Polin Cha", "Sabrosura", "Quiereme Mi Cielo", "Carbon De Palito", "Juana Maria", and "Canallon".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sabor Cubano
Rumba, Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$9.99 12.99
Great Cuban grooves, with some heavy trumpet in the lead – as you'd guess from the sparkling cover of this vintage album! The set's got a nice raw feel throughout – and the strong use of lead trumpet almost gives some of the cuts the feel of Dizzy Gillespie's cubop experiments from the ... CD
Maype, Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$9.99 12.99
Classic Cuban jazz material from the group of trumpeter Rolando Aquilo – done in a style that's a bit tighter than some of the other Jam Session albums from the time, but still plenty darn great! Rolando's trumpet is firmly in the lead on most tracks, but the overall presentation is still ... CD
Rough Guide, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD
A wicked little set that really gets at the way that Latin record collecting has moved way past the usual sounds from New York, Puerto Rico, and Cuba – to embrace a whole host of styles from around the globe! In a world of collections that feature oft-reissued numbers from the Fania catalog, ... CD
Latin Jam
Fania/Uniko (Canada), 1965. New Copy
The title's no lie – as the album's one of Pacheo's hardest-swinging albums! The set is miles away from the more composed style of Pacheco's charanga years – and has him really opening up with a descarga style that has lots of jazzy touches. Jose Chombo Silva plays some great tenor on ... CD
Asi Se Compone Un Son
Fania, 1973. New Copy
A key early moment for the great Ismael Rivera – really stepping out here strongly with a tight group of his own! Ismael's in the lead on vocals, but his arrangements for the group are quite strong too – cast in that best mix of jazz and Latin roots that you'll find in forward-thinking ... CD
Kubaney/Uniko (Canada), Mid 60s. New Copy
A lost little album from Latin flute legend Fajardo – and easily one of his grooviest records ever! Fajardo's probably best known for his charanga recordings of the early 60s – but this smoking set has the reedman stepping out wonderfully on a host of Latin Soul tunes to rival the best ... CD
Grupo De Experimentacion Sonora Del ICAIC Vol 2
Egrem (Cuba), Early 70s. New Copy
A really amazing session from this groundbreaking Cuban group – hard to describe accurately in words, and done with a really evocative feel that's way beyond the colder sounds you might guess from the "experimental" in their name! Instead, the vibe here is really warm and ... CD
Ahi Na Ma
Uniko (Canada), 1958. New Copy
Really lively work from Roberto Faz – just the kind of sweet combo work that made his music so great! Roberto feels like he's a few years ahead of the rest of the pack here – still sometimes working in a lusher mode with his band, but often hitting these moments with a sharper punch, ... CD
La Muerte Llego
ARO/Uniko (Canada), 1960. New Copy
An early 60s killer from Enrique Jorrin – just the kind of Cuban-born grooves we really love from the time! The group's got a lively charanga feel, with violin in the lead sometimes as much as the vocals – stepping over lively rhythms with bold piano on most numbers, in this style that' ... CD
Authority
Latin Percussion Ventures, 1976. New Copy
CD...$6.99 16.95
A stunner of an album – and a really unique Latin percussion jam from the 70s! The session's headed by the legendary Carlos Patato Valdez – who arguably sounds better here than on any of his earlier albums – as he's working with a really fluid, open groove – achieved in the ... CD
Dandy's Dandy – A Latin Affair
Latin Percussion Ventures, 1979. New Copy
CD...$6.99 11.99
An obscure but excellent session – recorded at the end of the 70s with some of the best players in the New York salsa underground! The music is extremely vibrant – and the styles of the tracks range from hard Afro-Cuban percussion grooving to tight Latin jazz in a classic mode – ... CD
PM/Shout (Japan), 1976. New Copy
An amazing little group – and one of the real standouts in indie jazz during the 70s! Stone Alliance are a killer power trio made up of players who'd previously worked for Elvin Jones – and all three of them have inherited a frenzied sense of rhythm from Jones – and that great ... CD
