Mongo SantamariaSkins ... LP
Milestone, Early 60s/1976. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
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".

Mongo SantamariaWatermelon Man (2LP) ... LP
Milestone, 1962/1963. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
Excellent Milestone 2-fer of sides Mongo cut for Battle, then licensed to Riverside, and finally collected here. These sessions are from the early 60s, and feature a gang of the best jazz and Latin sidemen around at the time, including Pat Patrick (of Sun Ra's Arkestra!), Nat Adderley and Bobby Capers and a massive rhythm section with Victor Venagas, Kako, Chihuahua Martinez and Julian Cabrera. There's a hot hard Latin vibe throughout, whether it's the tunes from the first two studio sides, issued as Watermelon Man or the live set captured as Mongo At The Village Gate which makes up the second LP. 22 slammin' tracks including "Yeh, Yeh", "Funny Money", "Go Git It!", "Bayou Roots", "Mongo's Groove", "The Jungle Bit", "Fatback", and "Nothing For Nothing".

✨✧ Ray BarrettoCan You Feel It ... LP
Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Joe LocoPuerto Rico '68 ... LP
Sunset, 1968. Near Mint- ... $23.99
A nice one by Joe Loco – one of his strongest of the 60s, and a tight batch of Latin soul tracks that has a lot more fire than some of his other records! The group's bigger too – with a crackling sound that's got all the youthful integrity you might expect from a title like Puerto Rico '68. The title cut "Puerto Rico 68" is a great number – subtitled "Camel Hop", and with a strong "Camel Walk" groove. Other tracks include "Chua Chua Boogaloo", "Shing-Ah-Ling", and "Oh Yeah" – and the album also features a cover of "Bang Bang". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MaloMalo ... LP
Warner, 1972. Sealed Gatefold ... $14.99
Wonderful 70s Latin soul from the legendary Bay Area combo that included Jorge Santana, Luis Gasca, and Coke Escovedo! This first record's a masterpiece in the California Latin Soul style – a sweet blend of Latin, jazz, funk, and rock that took up where the New York groups left off at the end of the 60s. The tracks are all pretty long – with some extremely tight instrumental playing, and plenty of room for long jamming solos. But the best part is the vocals – sung by Arcelio Garcia Jr, with a sweet style that's totally excellent. You probably already know that if you've heard the band's big hit "Suavecito", which is included here in a longer version than the original single – but you'll also hear that on the tracks "Cafe", "Pana", and "Peace". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed original pressing – with "hit" sticker on shrink!)

MachitoSun Also Rises ... LP
Tico, Late 50s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
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.)
