ChakachasJungle Fever ... CD
Polydor/Dusty Groove, 1972. Used ... $11.99
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!)

Chihuahua All StarsDescarga Cubana ... CD
Caney (Spain), 1964. Used ... $9.99
2 lost descarga sessions from the 60s – both of them played by groups led by Osvaldo Chihuahua Martinez! Martinez plays both timbales and guiro on the sessions, and he's working with a well-named selection of all-stars that includes Chocolate Armenteros on trumpet, Chombo Silva on tenor sax, Manfredo Lee on guiro, and Pupi Legarreta on flute and violin. The sessions feature some vocals by Vitin Lopez and Goody Osvaldo – but there's also a key focus on the instrumentation, which is really kept at a raw level in the mix, so that it really dominates the recordings, even when there is voice. Titles include "Guajiro Son", "Descarga Cubana", "Me Voy Pa Moron", "No No No Te Voy A Querer", "Cosquilla", "El Caballo", "Oye Lo Pollo", "Calefaccion", and "Coco De Agua". CD

Various50 Years Of Revolucion! ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $3.99
A tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution – and a sweet little set that starts and ends with spoken bits from Fidel Castro, yet also includes lots of classic Latin grooves in the middle! Some of the work here predates the revolution, which might make it subject to false consciousness – but overall, you can't deny the hard-wailing, sharp-grooving quality of the cuts – even though some of the tracks seem to be more in a Brazilian vibe, too – with lots of heavy batucada-like percussion. Titles include "Batanga No 4" by Justi Barreto, "No Se Que Voy A Hacer" by Quarteto D'Aida, "Jarro Da Saudade" by Turma Da Gafieira, "Como Usted" by El Gran Fellove, "Se Todos Fossem Iguais A Voce" and "Concerto De Outono" by Djalma Ferreira, "Profecia" by Quarteto D'Aida, and "Otro Coco" by Justi Barreto.

Bobby Vince PaunettoModern Sound Of Bobby Paunetto/El Sonido Moderno ... LP
Madri Gras, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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!
