Fania All-StarsLive At Yankee Stadium Vol 2 (remastered edition) ... CD
Fania, 1975. Used ... $9.99
By the mid 70s, the New York Latin scene was boomin' so large it could easily fill venues like Yankee Stadium – as you'll hear on this excellent live set from the Fania All-Stars, a monster record that easily ranks with the best live Latin sides of the time – like Eddie Palmieri at Sing Sing, the Tico-Alegre All Stars at Carnegie Hall, or Mongo Santamaria at Yankee Stadium! Tracks are nice and long – a real mix of soul and Latin, with slight funk and electric touches – and players include Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Bobby Valentin, Mongo Santamaria, Ricardo Ray, and Roberto Roena. Vocals are by a host of singers that include Santos Colon, Hector Lavoe, Ismael Rivera, and Celia Cruz. Manu Dibango also joins the group for the track "Congo Bongo", a great long number in which he does a hot little solo! Other tracks include "Bemba Colora", "Hermandad Fania", and "Echate Pa'Lla". CD

Ismael MirandaNo Voy Al Festival (remastered edition) ... CD
Fania, 1977. Used ... $29.99
Soaring 70s salsa from Ismael Miranda – cut at a time when he was making some great waves with the Fania All Stars, but sounding even better on his own! Miranda's got a positive, powerful vocal approach here – one that's oozing with soul and humanity, but never falls into the too-emotive traps of some of his contemporaries. Arrangements are full and rich – put together by Jorge Millet with a fair bit of horns, but also some nice use of acoustic guitar to pull out a slightly rootsy mode at times. Titles include "La Puerta Esta Abierta", "No Voy Al Festival", "Piensas", "Sauavecity", "Ten Fe", and "Vuelve Cipriano". CD

Joey PastranaJoey (remastered edition) ... CD
Cotique/Fania, Late 60s. Used ... $29.99
Brilliant early work by one of the sharpest bandleaders of the Latin Soul era! A young Joey Pastrana leads his sharp little combo through a stunning mix of Latin jazz, Latin soul, and descarga tracks – all with the kind of hard playing, jazzy grooves, and dark edges that characterized a lot of the best late 60s albums on Cotique. There's a nascent salsa groove on here that bubbles forth amidst some more stripped down Latin soul numbers – making for a really winning album overall, one that's got loads and loads of solid tunes! Tracks include "That's How Rumors Start", "Yehco De Rumbon", "Ricki Chi", "Orquesta Pastrana", "King Of Latin Soul", "Dance Donna", and "Cotique All Stars". Great stuff by one of the most-overlooked talents of the late 60s! CD

✨✧ Mongo SantamariaRed Hot ... LP
Tappan Zee, 1979. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
A great Bob James-directed session from Mongo Santamaria – and a set that takes the fusion-inflected Latin work he was doing on the Vaya label, and blends it with an even tighter, sharper CTI Records vibe! The approach is a bit like that combination of underground Latin and larger label resources that brought great sounds to both Ray Barretto and the Fania All Stars at the time – and the session features excellent CTI help from Bob James on keyboards, Eric Gale on guitar, and Hubert Laws on flute – the latter of whom got his start working with Mongo in the 60s! Titles include a funky electric remake of "Watermelon Man", plus the cuts "Afro Cuban Fantasy", "Jamaican Sunrise", "Jai Alai", and "Sambita". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby MontezViva Montez! ... CD
World Pacific/Melodias (Colombia), 1961. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An incredible album of Latin jazz! The great vibist Bobby Montez leads one of the hippest combos you'll ever hear on record – a modal quintet that grooves like no other Latin combo we can think of – topped with wonderful vibes from the leader, on an album that's totally unique – and even different than any of Bobby's other albums! The tracks are nicely jazzy, but with an exotic touch that gives them a wonderfully fresh feel – and Bobby and group sing spooky vocals on a number of tracks, chanting with the choruses in a way that's really cool – but which never takes away from the jazzy instrumentation. The whole thing's sublime – with piano from Carlos Avelar, timbales from Mike Gutierrez, and congas from Ray Rivera. Titles include "Jungle Stars", "Garden Of Allah", "My", "Guajiria Josephina", "But Heaven Knows", and "Brazilian". CD

Bobby Vince PaunettoModern Sound Of Bobby Paunetto/El Sonido Moderno ... LP
Madri Gras, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of our favorite Latin jazz albums ever – and a truly amazing record! Bobby Pauntteo, aka Bobby Vince Paunetto, is probably best known for his groundbreaking Latin fusion albums of the NuYorican era – but this rare gem from the 60s shows that he was a really forward thinker, even at a younger age! The sound is incredibly hard to define – a blend of modal jazz, Latin rhythms, and a uniquely lyrical approach to the percussion that makes the record take off to places you'd never expect. Bobby's conception is mindblowing from start to finish – and the record's even got some wonderful tracks that feature English vocals on top of the hip vibes-driven sound of the instrumentation. A gem throughout – and the kind of record we'll take to the grave! Titles include "Aguantando", "Why Is Woody Sad?", "Mambo Sevilla", "El Senor Sid", and "Dig It Like It Is". Great stuff!

ChakachasJungle Fever ... CD
Polydor/Dusty Groove, 1972. Used ... $12.99
A mad mix of Latin and funky rhythms – a 70s classic from the Belgian group Chakachas! The album's best known for its title hit "Jungle Fever" – an insane cut that features heavy drums, choppy guitar, and a stop/start action that's peppered with sounds of female pleasure! The track was a worldwide hit, and continues to be a funky classic today – thanks to a heavy sample history, and a life in playlists worldwide – but the rest of the album's pretty darn great too, and even weirder. Some tracks mix easy Euro grooving with heavy conga, others have kind of an LA Chicano funk approach, and still others throw in some mad horns to complicate matters with nice jazzy riffing. Really great throughout – and maybe one of the best funky albums to ever come out on a major label! Titles include "Jungle Fever", "El Canyon Rojo", "Chica Chica Bau Bau", "Eso Es El Amor", "Ay Mulata", "Cha Ka Cha", "Latin Can Can", and "Yo Soy Cubano". (Soul, Latin) CD
(Out of print. On the Dusty Groove label!)
