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
Some hard-cooking salsa from the legendary Cortijo – a set that seems to be from later years, but which has all the sparkle of his classic early work! The horns are nice and tight, and inflected with some of the more modern touches crafted in 70s New York and Puerto Rico – and vocals ... CD
It's always a treat to hear from the team of Kako and Totico – and this album's no exception! The pair have a way of coming up with lively interplay right from the start – the energy that would formerly build over time in Kako's early jam session records, nicely brought to the ... CD
The cover alone should be enough to tell you this is a cooker – as Cortijo and Kako go head to head on heavy percussion, working a heavy traditional groove despite the later date of the album! Rhythms are strongly in the plena and bomba modes – with timbales and congas dominating, as ... CD

Amazing sounds from the Puerto Rican scene of the 60s – a key link between the music of Cuba and New York – and an outlet that became even more important after the fall of Havana! Back in the day, there was steady traffic between San Juan and uptown New York – as styles traded, ... CD
A legendary bit of Latin from the New York scene of the 60s – recorded by a host of youthful players working under the direction of percussionist Montego Joe! The group's name is a contraction of "Harlem Youth" – a program in which all players participated, as part of an ... CD
A killer set of percussion-heavy Latin jazz tracks – one that brings together two different generations of Latin Jazz, working here in a stripped-down groove that's totally wonderful! The album's a real stunner from the legendary late 70s run of the Latin Percussion label – the imprint ... CD
Joe Tex bumps with the best of his contemporaries in the 70s – but at a level that still holds onto all the warmth and humanity of his earlier recordings too! There's definitely a bit of a dancefloor groove to the record, but it never dampens the spirit in Joe's vocals – and in a way, ... CD
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 ... CD
