Mongo SantamariaMongo At Montreux ... LP
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good ... $6.99
Mongo cooks mightily – working here at the Montreux Jazz Fest in 1971, with a soaring group that's even more spiritual than any of his records in the 60s! There's definitely a dose of Latin Soul in the mix, but there's a fiercer, more righteous quality to the album too – thanks to the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mongo SantamariaMongo Introduces La Lupe ... LP
Riverside, 1963. Very Good- ... $12.99
Mongo teams up the great Latin diva La Lupe in the early 60s for a tasty set of Latin Jazz and Descargas. The band includes the great set of players Mongo was using at this time – including Marty Sheller, Pat Patrick and Bobby Capers, plus Kako sits in on percussion, though La Lupe sings on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mongo SantamariaSkins ... LP
Milestone, Early 60s/1976. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
One of those Milestone 70s two-fer sets, filled with Mongo's classic early Latin jazz sides cut for Riverside in the 60s. As you'd expect, there's lots of tight jazzy moments and straight ahead hard jamming, courtesy of an all-star cast that includes Nat Adderley, Ronnie Capers, Paul Serrano and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mongo SantamariaUp From The Roots ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good ... $7.99
A really surprising turn in the career of Mongo Santamaria – especially after a run of successful mainstream Latin sides for Columbia and Atlantic! The album's definitely "up from the roots", and features Mongo in a percussion-heavy exploration of older Afro-Cuban rhythms – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & green label pressing. Cover has an index label on the spine.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mongo SantamariaYambu ... LP
Fantasy, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $19.99
One of Mongo's great early records, with a spooky Afro-Cuban sound, and a great assortment of drummers that includes Francisco Aquabella, Carlos Vidal, Willie Bobo, and Modesto Duran. The overall vibe is much more traditional than Mongo's other albums – and there's none of the pop Latin jazz ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing on red vinyl. Cover has light wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mongo Santamaria & Justo BetancourtUbane ... LP
Fania/Vaya, 1976. Very Good ... $18.99
A classic collaboration between singer Justo Betancourt and percussionist Mongo Santamaria – who gives Justo some of his strongest backings of the 70s! Marty Sheller produced, conducted, and arranged most of the tracks – and gives the record the same sort of rock-solid sound he'd ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lalo SchifrinPiano Espanol ... LP
Tico, 1959. Near Mint- ... $39.99
A very unusual early chapter in the career of Lalo Schifrin – and a record that's a fair bit different than most of his famous bossa, jazz, and soundtrack work! The sound here is much more New York Latin than the Brazilian modes that show up in other Schifrin work – with orchestrations ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small center split on the spine.)

Mauricio SmithBitter Acid ... LP
Mainstream, 1967. Very Good ... $38.99
A killer album of hard instrumental Latin soul tracks – one of the few albums ever done by funky reed player Mauricio Smith! On the set, Smith plays flute, alto, and soprano sax – and the record's filled with short little groovers that have a nice choppy sound, and lots of heavy conga ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has split top & bottom seams.)

Symphony Sid & OthersSymphony Sid's Last Radio Broadcast ... LP
Fania, 1973. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99

In 1972, Sid did his last radio show ever – and the event was broadcast from the famous Cheetah ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(A great copy overall – three sides are NM-, but side four has a mark that clicks on a few tracks.)

Ray TerraceHome Of Boogaloo ... LP
Tower, 1968. Near Mint- ... $43.99
One of the coolest, grooviest albums of Latin Soul you could ever hope to find – one of the few records ever from the great Ray Terrace – and a set that goes even beyond some of the similar sides on Tico or Fania at the time! Ray's groove here is totally wonderful – upbeat, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Great original pressing – nice and clean! Cover has a very light trace of an old sticker in one corner, but is great overall too.)

ToroToro ... LP
Coco, 1975. Very Good+ ... $28.99
The one and only album by this oft-overlooked NuYorican group from the 70s! Toro had a sound that was different than most of their 70s contemporaries on the east coast – a sound that had more touches of the LA Chicano approach, heard especially through the heavy use of guitars on the record, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Miguelito ValdesInolvidables ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good+ ... $5.99
The legendary Miguelito Valdes gets some great help on this sweet Verve session from Chico O'Farrill – whose backings really help freshen up the sound, and give the whole record a hip kind of 60s swing! Valdes had been recording for many years by the time of this date, but Chico's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
