✨✧ VariousNu Yorica ! – Culture Clash In New York City 1970-1977 (20th anniversary edition) ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A landmark collection – and one that virtually defined an entire generation unto itself! Back in the mid-90s, when this early Soul Jazz collection was first issued – there was a certain strain of Latin music that had been ignored for decades – that unusual fusion of Latin, soul, funk, and jazz that happened mostly in the New York underground of the 70s – at a time when salsa was reigning king, and some of the more soulful currents were getting lost in the shuffle. The work here is wonderful – and thanks to this set, finally has gotten its place in the history book – as a key moment when so many different scenes came together, and made some of the most groundbreaking Latin grooves of the 20th century! The set's got a wonderful book that's really a primer to hip Latin sounds of the 70s – and the 2CD set is filled with gems that include "La Trompeta Y La Flauta" by Cachao, "Gumbo" by Cortijo Y Su Maquina Del Tiempo, "Un Dia Bonita" by Eddie Palmieri and "Macho" by Machito Orchesta – plus "Las Negritas De Caranval" by Charlie Palmieri, "Mamey Colorao" by Ocho, "Aftershower Funk" by Joe Bataan, "Amigos" by Stone Alliance, "Babilonia" by Ricardo Marrero, "Anabaco" by Grupo Folklorico & Experimental, "Little Rico" by Bobby Vince Paunetto, "Condiciones Que Existen" by Eddie Palmieri, "My Friend" by Ricardo Marrero, and "Tornado" by Ocho.

✨✧ VariousSoho Continental ... CD
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Latin rhythms, Italian lyrics, jazzy solos, and lots more groovy touches – all coming together here in a special set of tracks that evokes the cross-cultural brilliance of London's Soho at the end of the 50s! The set's got a really unique vibe – with songs that mix electric guitars and heavy percussion, swinging vocals and rocking rhythms, jazzy scatting and weird instrumentation – all with the completely great ear for a special tune that we've come to expect from the Croydon Municipal label! If you've dug their other compilations, you'll definitely find plenty here to love – on 25 titles that include "Nicola Bossa Nova" by Bob Leaper, "Ciquo Minuti Ancora" by Peppini Di Capri, "Cappucina" by Ted Heath, "Esso Besso" by Victor Silvester, "Cha Cha Pop Pop" by Tony Scott, "Hot Toddy" by The Swe Danes, "Teenager Blues" by The Kessler Sisters, "Harry Lime Cha Cha" by Edmundo Ros, "Taboo" by Charles Blackwell, "Madison A Saint Tropez" by Tommy Kinsman, "Papa Loves Mambo" by Marino Marini, and "Mambo Inn" by The Modernes.
