Cesar AscarrunzCesar 830 ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1975. Very Good Gatefold ... $39.99
Lost Latin funk from the Bay Area scene of the 70s – and an album that may well blow away better-known work by groups like Malo, Azteca, or El Chicano! The album's near-perfect right from the start – and brings in plenty of New York elements to the groove, thanks to the inclusion of a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fred Astaire Dance Studio OrchestraMerengues & Mambos ... LP
RCA, 1959. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Not a Fred Astaire vocal record – and instead some very groovy Latin material recorded under his name! LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes a bonus dance instruction book!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
AztecaPyramid Of The Moon ... LP
Columbia, 1973. Very Good ... $24.99
A really special record from a really special group – one of two sublime 70s gems from Azteca – a wicked blend of jazz, funk, Latin, and soul – all put together by a young Coke Escovedo! Coke's ostensibly the leader of the group, but there's also a richly collaborative feel going ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some splitting on the top seam.)

✨✧ Ray BarrettoEl Ray Criollo ... LP
United Artists, 1966. Very Good+ ... $39.99
Ray Barretto just before the Latin Soul era – working in the excellent style he used on his Charanga Moderna album – a choppy groove that has plenty of weird twists and turns – always rhythmic, and always plenty darn soulful! The instrumentation here is a mix of small combo jazz ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – in great shape, save for one very short click in one spot. Cover is great!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ray BarrettoOther Road ... LP
Fania, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $34.99
Ray Barretto's definitely going down different road here – and sounding amazingly great in the process! The record is unlike anything else that Ray did at the time – a stunning batch of fusion tracks, with more of an electric jazz approach than usual – one that's a soaringly ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original multi color label pressing – in nice shape!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ray BarrettoQue Viva La Musica ... LP
Fania, 1972. Very Good ... $33.99
Fantastic stuff from Ray Barretto – and one of his most sophisticated albums of the 70s! The album mixes together rootsy percussion and smoother jazzy arrangements – in a manner that keeps things fresh at all points, and which shifts the focus nicely from track to track – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Multicolor label pressing. Cover has a split bottom seam. Vinyl plays with a click on the first track.28)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Willie BoboBobo Motion ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Bobo Motion is groovy motion – heard here on one of Willie's best albums for Verve from the late 60s – a really unique blend of jazz, Latin, and soul-based rhythms! The set's even tighter than some of Willie's other Verve records – and like the classic Uno Dos Tres, it's got some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label promo.)

✨✧ Jack Bongo BurgerLet's Play Bongos ... LP
Hi Fi, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $13.99
A very groovy little set – bongos, with lots of great spare moments – presented under the auspices of a percussion instruction record! Jack "Bongo" Burger was similar to Jack "Mr. Bongo" Costanza – that is, he was a west coast studio player who also made a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(In nice shape!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jack BurgerLet's Play Congas ... LP
Hi Fi, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A much more obscure follow-up to Jack's sweet set of bongo instrumentals – done here with congas instead, and a cool mix of very spare rhythms with a bit of narration! Burger is on congas, and the set also features piano lines alongside the percussion. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Joe CainLatin Explosion (aka Latin Au Go Go) ... LP
Time, 1962. Very Good ... $24.99
One of the few albums ever issued as a leader by the great Joe Cain – a wonderful Latin arranger with a really mad ear for a groove! Cain's approach is often quite choppy in the rhythms – short, hard, and very very sharp – then topped with sweeter, jazzier lines – played on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Eddie CanoHere Is The Fabulous Eddie Cano ... LP
Reprise, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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 ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milton CardonaBembe ... LP
American Clave, 1986. Near Mint- ... $19.99
An excellent set by Latin percussionist Milton Cardona – very rootsy, with a spare Afro Cuban sound that reminds us a bit of the Grupo Folklorico y Experimental, although perhaps stripped down even more. Much of the album features Cardona's percussion group working through songs dedicated to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Buddy ColletteJazz Heat Bongo Beat ... LP
Crown, 1959. Very Good- ... $3.99
A little bit Latin, a little bit jazz, a little bit loungey – and a lotta bit groovy! LA flute jazzer Buddy Collette leads the session, and it's got a nice groove that mixes the piano of Eddie Cano with guitar by Tommy Tedesco and a blend of jazz drumming and Latin percussion. The record ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Cuba SextetBang! Bang! Push! Push! Push! ... LP
Tico, 1966. Very Good- ... $18.99
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 ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Xavier CugatBread, Love, & Cha Cha Cha ... LP
Columbia, 1957. Very Good ... $8.99
One of Cugie's more popular albums – and a record that has him re-recording older hits for the hi-fi generation. The groove's pretty much in the older Latin style – but the newer recordings were done in a stereo setting, which makes for a bit better sound than some of the originals. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(6 Eye pressing. Vinyl clicks on side two.)
