Ray BarrettoLa Cuna ... LP
CTI, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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

BatacumbeleAfro Caribbean Jazz ... LP
Montuno, 1987. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Afro Caribbean Jazz – but with a good dose of New York Latin as well – just the kind of wonderful blend we'd expect from Batacumbele on a classic like this! All tracks are nice and long, and are recorded with an open, free-flowing energy that was hardly used in Latin music at the time – a mode that hearkens back to the jam sessions of the descarga generation, and some of the most creative modes of the 70s modernists as well! Like the best of those artists, Batacumbele has a way of weaving old traditions into something new – working complex musical patterns, but with a quality that's right on the money, right away – really grabbing you in, and holding you rapt throughout! The jazz aspect of this record is even higher than most of their other sessions – with trumpet from Tommy Villarini, trombone from William Cepeda, tenor and flute from Hector Veneros, keyboards from Amuni Nacer and Arturo Ortiz, and lots of great percussion from Angel Cachete Maldonado and other members of the group! Includes long instrumental numbers "May Day" and "Hot Blood", plus a cover of Horace Silver's "Nutville" – and the vocal track "Cachita". LP, Vinyl record album

La LupeQueen Of Latin Soul/Reina De La Cancion Latina ... CD
Tico, Late 60s. New Copy ... About May 1, 2015 (delayed)
While Pete Rodriguez and Pete Terrace were battling it out for the "King Of The Boogaloo" title – La Lupe went ahead and dubbed herself "The Queen Of Latin Soul"! Oddly, though, the album's less of a strict Latin Soul effort than you might guess from the title – and is more of a mix of different modes, including some more heartfelt ballads that were more typical of Lupe's work – sung here with that heartfelt sense of soul that's most likely the real reason for her claim to the title! Arrangements are by Hector DeLeon, and bring a good focus on Lupe's incredible vocals through creative use of strings and percussion. Titles do include a Latin Soul version of "Fever", plus more traditional Latin tunes that include "Amor Gitano", "Aun", "Negruna", "Este Ritmo Sabroson", "Soy Sonerita", "La Tirana", and "Busamba".

✨✧ Abelardo CarbonoEl Maravilloso Mundo De Abelardo Carbono – Psychedelia, Afroroots & Champeta In 1980s Barranquilla ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), 1980s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mindblowing sounds from the one of the originators of Colombian champeta – a mad musician who's able to bring together a huge array of sounds into one very unique groove! The collection crackles with energy right from the very first note – then explodes into a musical frenzy that includes Latin rhythms, psychedelic production, African-styled guitar lines, Caribbean rootsy percussion, and lots lots more – all wrapped together with the kind of skittish, restless approach that can often make Colombian recordings so great! There's a raw sound to many of the tracks – a vibe that feels more like the earlier years of Disco Fuentes than most other 80s recordings – and the set's got great notes on Abelardo and his music, and a batch of titles that includes "Muevela", "Viajando", "La Playa", "Baile Del Indio", "La Negra Kulengue", "Ejen En Acordeon", "Oye Muje Muje", "Guiero A Mi Gente", "Guana Tangula", and "A Otro Perro Con Ese Hueso".

✨✧ VariousBeginners Guide To Cuban Music (3CD box set) ... CD
Nascente (UK), 2009. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
Cuban music makes a mighty comeback here – in a well-done 3CD set that explores some of the freshest sounds in a variety of genres! Each disc features a slightly different theme – CD 1 is cuts in the classic son mode, CD 2 features Cuban salsa and timba, and CD 3 shows a strong absorption of sounds from beyond the borders – including a fair bit of hip hop and Caribbean elements in the rhythms! As with others in this "introduction to" series, you get a hell of a lot of music for the price – 43 tracks on 3CDs, with titles that include "Hay Madresita" by Felix Baloy, "El Rejol De Pastora" by Grupo Sierra Maestra, "Manteca De Corojojo" by Calle 23, "Cienfuegos Tiene Su Guaguanco" by Cienfuegos Allstars, "Princesa" by Calle Real, "Tranquilo Mota" by Los Van Van, "La Temba" by Charanga Habanera, "La Madre Maria" by Tirso Duarte, "No Vengas" by Papo Record, "La Maestra" by Cubanito 20.02, "Rebuelo" by Philipsman, "Toca Me" by Instincto, and "Conga Latina" by El Gremio.
