Latin Bugalu

LP (Item 57648) Atlantic, 1968 — Condition: New Copy
(reissue)
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 6

A darn tough one to find – and one of Charlie Palmieri's best records from the 60s! The session is an obscure one-off done for Atlantic in 1968 – and for some reason, the record was never issued as widely as some of Charlie's other sides for smaller labels during the time, making it one of the most hard-to-find chapters of his career. The tracks are played by a tight little Latin jazz combo – with Charlie on piano, Julian Priester on trombone, and Louis Ramirez on timbales – and the set is filled with some great original tunes that mix together boogaloo rhythms and straight ahead Latin jazz. Tracks include "Bugalu", "Mambo Show", "Panama's Boogaloo", and "Bitter Sweet" – plus a Latin soul instrumental reading of "Up Tight".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Killer stuff all around! This album's a monster – one of Ray's greatest, with the same sort of Latin Soul groove heard famously on his classic Acid LP. The record has Ray cutting across many genres – blending Latin, soul, jazz, and a slight bit of funk – all into a set of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bennito Sextet Plus One
Mardi Gras, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
Boogaloo – and nothing but!
