LP, Vinyl record album

The "quad" here seems to be mostly conceptual – but the "live" part of the set is definitely in place! The album's a real stormer – one of the best mid 70s sides from Larry Harlow's excellent group, recorded in front of a small but enthusiastic crowd, and done with the same sort of energy as the best live albums on Fania at the time – a cooking sort of energy that connects that musicians and the audience wonderfully, and shows the sheer raw power of New York Latin during these legendary years. There's some really great live tracks on the set – including the massive 11 minute "Descarga Final" – worth the price of the record alone – the percussive "Tumba Y Bongo", and the cuts "Mayari" and "Jovenes De Muelle". Other tracks include "La Cartera", "Gracia Divina", and "Senor Sereno". (Multi-colored label pressing. Cover has a piece of clear tape on the spine.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Calypso Dance
Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good
A great set of Latin grooves – and despite the "calypso" in the title, this is pretty much a straight Latin album from Joe Loco, and it ranks as one of his best from the 50s. The grooves are nice and straight ahead, with searing percussion, and nice heavy piano from Joe. Who ... LP, Vinyl record album

ABC, Late 50s. Very Good
Candido cut sooo many great Latin records over the years, spanning a wide range of styles, we have a hard time deciding which we love the best. We like to think this may be his best album from the early part of his career, specifically because it features the master conga player amidst a tight ... LP, Vinyl record album
