Mongo SantamariaSkins ... LP
Milestone, Early 60s/1976. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
One of those Milestone 70s two-fer sets, filled with Mongo's classic early Latin jazz sides cut for Riverside in the 60s. As you'd expect, there's lots of tight jazzy moments and straight ahead hard jamming, courtesy of an all-star cast that includes Nat Adderley, Ronnie Capers, Paul Serrano and Jimmy Cobb – along with Pat Patrick from Sun Ra's Arkestra. The vibe is hot and heavy, and a totally full-on Latin jamming approach, lots of tight conga by Mongo, and some firey solos on reeds! 19 tracks in all, including "Skins", "Fatback", "Sweet Tater Pie", "Dot, Dot, Dot", "Tacos", "Happy Now", "Tumba Le Le", "African Song", "Carmela", and the long groover "Congo Blue".

✨✧ Johnny ZamotTell It Like It Is! ... LP
Decca/El Sonido, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A heck of a great little boogaloo album – and one of the few 60s sides by the legendary Johnny Zamot! Although cut for Decca, the album's every bit as tight and soulful as contemporaneous work for Tico, Fania, or Cotique – and the set features a similar blend of English lyrics, Latin rhythms, and a nicely gritty Spanish Harlem approach to the music! The horns cut wonderfully into most of the tunes – blasting out with a soul instrumental sort of vibe, while the lyrics tackle simple themes of love and lust on titles that include "Baby, Bring It To Me", "You Cheated On Me", "Harlem Boogaloo", "Hey Girl", "You Dig", and the sweet instrumental "Latino Baby", written by Pat Patrick, from Sun Ra's group!

Joe BataanSalsoul ... CD
Salsoul/Unidisc (Canada), 1973. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
A landmark album from Joe Bataan – so great, that it made the entire record company change its name! The record has Joe really bursting out after his seminal Latin Soul work of the late 60s – blending Latin rhythms and American soul into a whole new style of music – one that Joe called "Salsoul", because of it's mixture of salsa and soul! The blend is fantastic, a real milestone in the NuYorican scene – and handled perfectly by Joe on every cut! There's some massive Latin funk on here, including the tracks "Latin Strut" and "Aftershower Funk", plus some straighter Latin jazz, like "Sunny Gets Blue Mambo", and a great Latin Soul cut with English vocals called "Johnny". CD features the bonus track "Continental Square Dance"! CD

Willie BoboFeelin' So Good ... LP
Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
One of the Verve albums that focuses on Willie Bobo's talents as a singer – still very much in the tight Latin Soul style of Willie's other work from the time, but with more vocals on the tracks – done in Willie's rough-styled soulful mode! Includes the groovers "Feelin' So Good" and "Sock It To Me", plus "Lil Red Riding Hood", "Sunshine Superman", "Call Me", "Dichoso", and "Sunny". Very nice pop Latin soul groove!

Angel CanalesSabor ... CD
Alegre, 1975. New Copy ... $12.99
Possibly the greatest album ever from Angel Canales – a 70s salsa classic through and through, and one with great links between the New York scene and Canales' Puerto Rican roots! The tunes are wonderfully heartfelt throughout – sung with a youthful sense of soul that's far different than some of the more emotive modes of previous generations of Latin singers – in a way that really scored big with the younger generation at the time, and which makes Canales one of the key forces helping to change the sound of the music in the 70s. Instrumentation is nice and tight – acoustic small combo work with two trombones, trumpet, baritone sax, flute, piano, bass, and percussion – under musical direction by Juan Torres. Titles include "Lejos De Ti", "Perico Macona", "La Hiedra", "Sol De Mi Vida", "Sabor Los Rumberos Nuevos", and "El Cantante Y La Orquesta". CD

La New Breed OrchestraJala Jala Woe Woe Baby ... LP
Fonseca/Andale, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99 12.98
No woe here at all – because the album's very upbeat, and very joyous all the way through – played in the best young combo mode of the 60s! Latin soul, jazz, and older descarga modes all come into play on the set – mixed up in the Puerto Rican groove of the Fonseca Records scene of the time – all with more grit in the grooves than any similar records on Fania or Tico! Piano and horns are often competing in the lead with runaway energy – and vocals are both in English and Spanish, which really helps create some groovy crossover modes. Titles include the choppy boogaloo number – "New Breed Bugaloo" – plus "Woe Woe Baby", "Follow The Sun", "Three In One", "Ritmo Tropical", "Dulce Son", "Quinto Bongo", and "Tenia Que Ser Asi".

MachitoSun Also Rises ... LP
Tico, Late 50s. Very Good ... $43.99
Extremely rare Machito soundtrack for the film of Hemmingway's Sun Also Rises, which starred Tyrone Power and Ava Gardner. The music is some of Machito's best from the time, and the whole record has an incredibly raw Afro-Cuban groove to it, with none of the sleepiness that you can get in some of Machito's other albums. Titles include "6 Beautiful Girls", "The Orchestra", "Bom Bon Cha", "Tumbao", "Sabarosonga", "Chug A Lug", and "Cha Cha Blues". Great cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – nice and heavy! Cover is great on front, and back has two small names, but is nice too.)

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".

Ray BarrettoCan You Feel It ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Sweet sounds from the days when Fania Records was one of the greatest things going on the New York scene – and some of its key artists got a chance to work for other labels! This set's one of the best examples of that moment – as Ray Barretto steps out here in some sweet soulful territory for Atlantic Records – on an album that mixes his Latin roots with warmer soul backings that have the same sort of full, rich sound of the best Atlantic R&B of the time. Ray's conga is still part of the sound – especially on the funkier cuts – but the album's also got some strong soul vocals, too – sung by Prince Phillip Mitchell on one of the album's best cuts, and by Cissy Houston and Googie Coppola on a few others. Tracks include "Sting Ray", "Can You Feel It", "What Part Of Heaven Do You Come From", "Stargazer", and "Confrontation". CD
