✨✧ Ray Barretto & Eddie Lockjaw DavisAlma Alegre (aka Afro Jaws) ... LP
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good ... $19.99
A second version of the album that was also issued under the title Afro Jaws – a beautiful record that has Lockjaw's hard tenor blowing strong over a Latin group led by Ray Barretto. An amazing mix of sounds, and one of the few cross-genre attempts in jazz that actually works. Hear Lock break out of the usual soul jazz bag, and blow like mad on Latin jammers like "Wild Rice", "Jazz-a-Samba", "Guanco Lament", and "Tin Tin Deo". Great stuff throughout, with excellent production! (Jazz, Latin) LP, Vinyl record album
(Maroon label Orpheum Productions pressing. NOTE – Cover is stained and flaky on the bottom 4 inches, with the back mostly peeled.)

✨✧ Ruben BladesMaestra Vida – Segunda Parte ... LP
Fania, 1979. Very Good- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
An amazing achievement for Ruben Blades – a full suite of tracks conceived and composed by Ruben as a "disco drama" on wax! The work isn't the disco-styled album you might think from this description – and is more of a mini-opera or concept album by Blades, one that features ambitious arrangements from Louie Cruz, Marty Sheller, and Carlos Franzetti – using strings and more standard Latin backings to expand the tunes tremendously, and make the whole album work with the full drama it requires. There's a few spoken bits on the set, which give way to some great songs – and the album also has a few instrumental passages. Willie Colon produced and supervised the whole effort – and tracks on this second part include "Epilogo", "El Velorio", "Manuela Despues", "El Entierro", "Hay Que Viver", and "Maestra Vida". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has creasing.)
