Machito & His Afro Cuban OrchestraVacation At The Concord ... LP
Coral, 1958. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A great document of the crossover between the New York Latin scene and the Catskills – the upstate resort community that was as important to the Latin groups as the uptown clubs! Like many groups of the period, Machito's found a heck of a lot of work in the Catskills during the 50s – most notably at the Concord Resort, paid tribute to by this set – which includes photos of famous Concord staffers that include swimming instructor Buster Crabbe and golf pro Jimmy Demarest! But apart from that gimmicky approach, the album's actually a strong one for Machito – showing the kind of grooves that helped his 50s group cross over big – a mix of mambo and early cha cha tracks that include "Patricia", "Guaglione", "Torero", "Cha Cha Cha Loco", "Cotillon Mambo", and "Mambo La Concord". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousMambo A Paris 1949 to 1953 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
A totally wonderful collection of Latin sounds from postwar Paris – music that's every bit as rhythmically intense as its contemporaries in Havana and New York! The groups here are all French – led by Lewis Varona, Sebastien Solari, Ruben Calzado, Benny Bennet, Eddie Warner, and others – but the sounds are strikingly Caribbean – all the jazzy mambo promised in the title, with excellent percussion at the bottom, lively piano in the middle, and really bold horns on the top! And these aren't "fake" pop mambo tracks either, and instead have this sharp quality that makes the music a great discovery alongside the better-known 50s Latin recordings from the other side of the Atlantic. Features a whopping 48 tracks in all – and a 32 page booklet with notes in French and English! CD

✨✧ Ray BarrettoLa Cuna ... LP
CTI, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice jammer from the "second wind" period of CTI – and a strong return to Latin jazz for Ray! The set's a great mixture of smooth CTI electric funk and Latin-oriented grooves – and it features work by Ray on congas and percussion, plus a list of players that includes Tito Puente, Charlie Palmieri, Steve Gadd, John Tropea, Carlos Franzetti, and Willie Torres. The melds the styles beautifully – with plenty of languid, rubbery jamming with percussion that thumps just hard enough! Really kind of a stunner from '79 – one that came at welcome time for both Barretto and CTI! Includes the great electric Latin groover "Mambotango", plus "The Old Castle", "La Cuna", and a sublime vocal remake of Stevie Wonder's "Pastime Paradise"! LP, Vinyl record album
