Joe Cuba SextetBang! Bang! Push! Push! Push! ... CD
Tico, 1966. Used ... $24.99
A Latin classic from the word "bang"! This album was the one that busted Joe Cuba out of the Latin ghetto – into the sound of 60s soul, early funk, and beyond. The record's a stone winner – filled with boogaloo tracks delivered by Joe's firey young sextet, a killer ensemble that was setting the Latin world on its ear at the time. The title track – "Bang Bang" – is one of those tracks that you'll recognize from a million references, but which never sounds as good as it does on this impeccable version from Joe. The whole album follows in a similar suit – blending Latin, jazz, and soul with effortless ease – shifting between English and Spanish lyrics in a genre-busting style that really captures all the freshness of the era. The whole thing's great, and titles include "Asi Soy", "Alafia", "Triste", "Mujer Divina", "Oh Yeah", "Sock It To Me", and the "Bang Bang" follow-up, "Push, Push, Push". Great, hard, and a heck of a lot of fun! CD

Pete & Sheila EscovedoHappy Together ... LP
Fantasy, 1978. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Tight and soulful grooves from the team of Pete and Sheila Escovedo – a set that still has elements of the pair's Latin roots, but which also explodes in a flurry of funk, soul, and fusion moments too! As with their first Fantasy album, the duo have Billy Cobham on deck to produce – giving the record a sweetly soulful sound that's a bit like his own work of the late 70s, only a bit more Latinized in the percussion. Cobham also plays drums – and other players include Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Mark Soskin on keyboards, and Ray Obiedo on guitar. Titles include "Bolinas", "Ain't That The Truth", "Hello Like Before", "Burrito Bandito", "Cueros", and "Bridges (Travessia)". LP, Vinyl record album

Jonah Jones/Ivy Pete & His LimbomaniacsJonah Jones/Ivy Pete & His Limbomaniacs ... CD
Alma, Mid 60s. Used ... $8.99
An unusual combination of records – both pretty darn great! First up is Jazz Tropical from Jonah Jones – one of the coolest albums ever from this legendary trumpeter – a set that's got a strongly Latin flavor, and which provides a very unique setting for Jonah's horn! The backings feature loads of great elements – dreamy piano lines, some nice vibes, and plenty of Latin percussion to set up some sweetly syncopated grooves that make for a really nice change from the Jones style of the 50s – but which are still topped by his warm approach to a trumpet solo. Titles include "Eddie's Bossa Nova", "Yellow Days", "Where Is Your Laughter", "Jurame", "Claudia", "Jonah's Pachanga", and "La Pollera Colora". Next is Limbo Party from Ivy Pete – seemingly a dance craze cash-in, but a set that also seems to mix in a fair bit of Latin elements with the Caribbean styles! The record is way better than the usual limbo set from the time – as the instrumentation is razor sharp, and filled with tight, fast percussion riffs that really drive the grooves – while flute provide much of the melody, and sweet electric guitar lines come into the mix to hold the whole thing together! Pete sings a bit with the group on the record, always jumping along with the rhythms – and titles include "Donkey Wants Water", "Little Brown Skin Girl", "Sly Mongoose", "I Adore Her", "Man Smart Woman Smarter", and "Peas & Rice".
