Malo may be evolving a bit, but they're still right in the pocket as far as we're concerned! This excellent west coast Latin ensemble mixes together jazz, funk, soul, and slight touches of Chicano rock – into a heavy groove that was one of the best-conceived at the time. Jorge Santana lays down lots of heavy guitar licks, Francisco Aguabella's on percussion and congas, and Ron DeMasi plays plenty of hot lines on the Hammond organ and electric piano. Titles include "Moving Away", "I Don't Know", "Merengue", "Street Man", and "Entrance To Paradise".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Dos
Warner, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
A seminal bit of Latin funk from the Bay Area scene of the early 70s – the second album from Malo, and an even harder-hitting jam session than the first! The group are really in top form here – taking off with Santana-inspired riffs that are filled with heavy percussion, soaring organ, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tito Tito Tito
United Artists, 1968. Very Good+
A better Tito Rodriguez session than usual – one that's got 2 great descarga tracks! The album features the cuts "Descarga Cachao" and "Descarga Malanga" – both of which are hard-hitting, fiercely-jamming tunes that really push past the usual Latin fluff of Tito's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Doble Energia
Fania, 1980. Very Good+
Willie Colon helps Ismael Miranda get a new sense of energy in his music – backing the vocalist here with a tight set of salsa backings that are every bit the best Colon sound of the late 70s! The arrangers here are varied – and include Luis Cruz, Marty Sheller, and Luis Garcia – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cotique, 1968. Sealed
Good people, these Latin Teens – a very cool group that was young enough to not worry about names or labels, and who jammed in the best open-ended style of the time! As their name might imply, the group was mostly made up of kids – and as such, they had kind of a freewheeling approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tico, 1966. Good+
A Latin classic from the word "bang"! This album was the one that busted Joe Cuba out of the Latin ghetto – into the sound of 60s soul, early funk, and beyond. The record's a stone winner – filled with boogaloo tracks delivered by Joe's firey young sextet, a killer ensemble ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reprise, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Not as all-out Latin as some of Eddie's other records – but a killer batch of tunes played in his firey style! Eddie's a monster on the piano – hitting the keys with intensely rhythmic lines, backed here by bass, drums, and percussion, and riffing in a style that's at once fast and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Uno Dos Tres
Verve, 1966. Very Good-
Killer material, and one of Willie's best-ever albums for Verve! The album's filled with groovy numbers that hit the good mix of soul and Latin that was coming out of the New York scene at the time – and Willie delivers all of it with a tight jazzy sound that works great with the titles. ...

Night Beat
RCA, 1957. Very Good
One of Tito Puente's best sides for RCA – a really jazzy effort that was cut with a top-shelf list of players! The groove's a bit different than some of Tito's other work – but in a good way, and one that has him stretching past straight Latin to mix in a heavy dose of jazz – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stone Soul
Columbia, 1969. Very Good
A killer album from Mongo Santamaria's classic 60s run for Columbia – and a record that also features some wonderful alto work from a young Sonny Fortune! Sonny's the key soloist on the record – bringing some sharp jazz elements to an album that's equal part Latin and 60s soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Latin Satin
RCA, 1957. Very Good-
Dreamier stuff from Perez, but still with a nice Latin undercurrent. The set list is mostly Latin versions of pop material – like "Sway", "Tabu", "Perfida", "Green Eyes", and "Frenesi" – but the pop material is all Latin-tinged, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cotique, Late 60s. Very Good+
Very cool compilation of groovy singles from the golden years of this classic Latin label. The set's got lots of nice Latin Soul groovers, like "Mambo Suzie" by Johnny Colon, "Peyote" by Johnny Rivera, and "Jala Con Joey" by Joey Pastrana – plus nice straight ... LP, Vinyl record album
