Fania All-StarsLive At The Red Garter Vol 2 ... CD CD format
Fania, 1972. New Copy ... $12.99
A Latin soul party – beyond compare! The album's a completely wonderful live set that really captures the energy, excitement, and warm sociability of the hip New York scene at the end of the 60s. The music is stunning – a freewheeling blend of jazz, soul, and Latin themes – played with effortless ease by a lineup that includes Joe Bataan, Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Larry Harlow, Bobby Quesada, Louie Ramirez, Ralph Robles, and some of the other heavy-hitters of the Latin soul years. (Just imagine trying to get so many jazz or rock talents together on one stage – it would never happen!) The album's incredible – and even the spoken introductions and crowd noise really help set the feel of the era's mighty magic power! Titles on this second volume include "Kikapoo Joy Juice", "If This World Were Mine", "Richie's Bag", "Red Garter Strut", and "Son Cuero Y Boogaloo". Firey stuff, and one of their best records! CD

Pearly Queen/Wild WindQuit Jivin' – A Funk Anthology ... CD CD format
Sound Triangle/Essential, Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 16.98
2 bands with silly names, but amazing grooves – all very much in the Chicano funk mode – making the CD an essential one if you dig Latinized soul of the early 70s! Both groups hailed from Miami, and follow firmly in the style of Coke – another Miami funk group from the time who've been a huge favorite amongst the beathead crowd. Pearly Queen's 11 tunes on the set have some really great guitar riffing – wailing away in a heavy mode that's certainly got a trace of rock, but which is much more in the style of some of our favorite funky 45s! Wild Wind follow up the groove with some fuller-sounding tracks – often done in a magnificent blend of bass, percussion, guitar, and organ that's clearly inspired by the LA scene, but which has some unique elements of southern funk! The set's got 20 tracks in all, and is a great introduction to these two wonderful groups. Titles by Pearly Queen include "Quit Jivin", "Move On", "Super Star", "Jungle Walk", and "To Be With You" – and titles by Wild Wind include "A Drink Or Two", "What We Can Do", "Make Your Move", and "I've Tried To Love You". Better notes and package than the previous reissue, too! CD

VariousHavana Jam ... CD CD format
Columbia/Discos 605, 1979. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99 14.99
A groundbreaking record for the time – especially considering the barriers between American and Cuba! In a unique effort, Columbia Records managed to record this landmark concert set of performances featuring some of its biggest artists alongside other Cuban players – all captured live at the Karl Marx theater in Havana! This first volume is a very wide-ranging blend of styles – jazz, fusion, Latin, and bits of straight ahead vocals – handled by a diverse array of hip CBS superstars at the time, but often with a decidedly Cuban bent. Titles include "Black Market" by Weather Report, "Para Flauta Y Adaido De Mozart" by Irakera, "Cuba Al Fin" by Stephen Stills, "Project S" and "Black Stockings" by CBS Jazz All-Stars (Dexter Gordon, Jimmy Heath, Stan Getz, & Others), "Dark Prince" by Trio Of Doom, "Juan Pachanga" by Fania All-Stars, "Living Legend" by Kris Kristofferson, "Que Barla Monda" by Orquesta Aragon, and "Scherezada/Sun Sun" by Cuban Percussion Ensemble.

CuBop/Ubiquity, 2000. New Copy ... $5.99 16.98
Some of the best recent Latin Jazz around – all tied up in one slick package by those crafty folks at Cubop! In a world of silly "fake" Latin remake projects, Cubop's delivered some of the best straight Latin around – taking older giants and getting them back in the studio, as well as discovering rich new talents that have been gigging around the west coast in the underground scene. This set features a handsome batch of tracks from Cubop releases – including a few that you won't find easily – and titles include "Sandunga" by Dave Pike, "Herencia" by Bobby Matos, "Mujer Chicana" by Jazz On The Latin Side All Stars, "Sandra Malandra" by Marlon Simon, "La La La" by Jack Costanzo, "Jonny's Bugalu" by Grupo X, "Obalata" by Afroshock, and "Con Mi Guaguanco" by Ray Armando.

Fania All-StarsLive At The Cheetah Vol 1 ... CD CD format
Fania, Early 70s. New Copy ... Around August 10, 2014 (delayed)
Killer early work by the Fania All Stars – caught live at the legendary Cheetah club, which was the heart of the New York salsa scene at the start of the 70s! The album is easily one of the best by the group – and features long tracks that really capture the jamming intensity that occurred on stage when this many great artists were brought together in one space – kind of the "next step" for the older descarga mode put forth at the start of the 60s, pushed forward into the prouder, more unified Latin scene of the 70s! All Stars on this date include Ray Barretto, Larry Harlow, Bobby Valentin, Willie Colon, Johnny Pacheco, and others – and titles on this first volume include "Quitate Tu", "Descarga Fania", and "Anaconda".

New Ray BarrettoCarnaval (Latino!/Pachanga With Barretto) ... LP LP format
Fantasy, Early 60s/1973. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 of Ray Barretto's earliest albums, both recorded for the Riverside label at the start of his career! Latino has an approach to Latin jazz that's certainly informed by the charanga sound of the New York scene in the early 60s – but one that's also opened up a bit more to new ideas – bits of bossa nova, heavy percussion, and some odd instrumental twists that really make the album sparkle! There's some haunting violin work on one track, a bit of odd organ on another, and a very playful mix of flute, piano, and percussion throughout. The great Jose Combo Silva plays tenor on the date – and other players include Jose Canoura on flute, Alfredito Valdez on piano, and El Negro Vivar on trumpet. Ray's on congas, bongos, and timbales – and titles include "Sugar's Delight", "Carnaval", "Descarga La Moderna", "El Negro Y Ray", and "Cocinando Suave". Pachanga With Barretto is a very offbeat little set from Ray – a record that takes the standard pachanga groove of the time, and nicely turns it on its ear with a host of jazzy touches! Hector Rivera wrote all the tracks, and also did most of the arrangements – and the record's got a really playful feel that's far more than just straight Latin for the crowds at the club. Flute and violin are often used in slightly unusual ways – and they're mixed with harder lines on tenor from Frank Mercado and trumpet from El Negro Vivar. Other players include Ray Mantilla on timbales, Jose Canoura on flute, and Willie Rodriguez on percussion – and titles include "Oye Heck", "Pachanga Suavecito", "Pachanga Para Bailar", "Barretto En La Tumbadora", "Pachanga Oriental", and "Ponte Dura".
