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.)

Mongo SantamariaYambu ... LP
Fantasy, Late 50s. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
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

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

✨✧ Monguito SantamariaHey Sister ... LP
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Oooooo-weee – a monster album by one of our favorite talents of the Latin soul era! Monguito Santamaria had a really great way of putting the electric bass right up front in his tracks – kicking things up with a bouncing groove that's as sock-boogaloo as boogaloo can get, and which ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

Fierce and funky grooves from the glory days of the NuYorican scene! The album's a killer – filled with uptempo tracks that mix together Latin funk, jazz, and salsa – into an electrified groove that burns mightily across all the tracks! The album's got a great blend of electric keys ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

The first album by Latin combo Tempo 70 – in case you couldn't guess from the title – and a very nice debut for this multi-faceted group! The combo smoke in plenty of heady salsa territory – especially on the upbeat tracks, which have a lively spirit that really makes the album ... read more CD
