Celia Cruz and Johnny Pacheco join forces with vocalist Justo Betancourt and pianist Papo Lucca – the latter of whom was making plenty big waves in music with Sonora Poncena at the time! Pacheco's the leader of the group on flute and percussion, but Lucca's piano has plenty of force in the set too – and the instrumentation also features some rootsier percussion and tres, which helps it avoid the too-slick sound you might expect. Celia and Justo sing, and titles include "Ahora Si", "Reina Rumba", "Se Que Tu", "Besito De Coco", and "Yerbero Moderno".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Havana 3 AM
RCA, 1956. Very Good
A real Latin standard of the 50s – packaged with a title and a cover that perfectly evoke the lure of pre-Castro Cuba at its best – and played by Perez Prado with a style that's more open and flowing than some of his earlier singles! The album's got a really unified feel overall – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jewels Of Thought
Impulse, 1969. Very Good-
A wonderful reunion of Pharoah Sanders and vocalist Leon Thomas – and a set that captures a lot of the same energy as the pair's previous record – Karma!
