✨✧ CandidoCandi's Funk ... LP
Salsoul, 1980. Very Good- ... $6.99
A mighty set of club tunes from the legendary Candido – and proof that the congolero was still going strong at the end of the 70s! The set's got a nice stretched out feel – one that takes the fuller disco arrangements of Salsoul, and peppers them with some harder-hitting percussion work by Candido – making for a style that's surprisingly funky at times, and touched by some nice earthy percussion elements! Arrangements are by Carlos Franzetti and Joe Cain, with plenty of room for conga solos – and titles include "Candi's Funk", "Do You Wanna Dance", "Samba Funk", and "Super City".

Joe Cuba SextetBang! Bang! Push! Push! Push! ... LP
Tico, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album

Coke EscovedoComin' At Ya! ... LP
Mercury, 1976. Very Good ... $39.99
Pure brilliance from Coke Escovedo – an artist who really finds a way to make so many different things come together perfectly – with results that are even stronger than his previous work in Azteca and Santana! The set's got a warm blend of Latin roots, modern soul, and jazzy fusion – all produced by the great Pat Gleeson with the same sort of genre-bending care he brought to his own work as a musician! Gleeson makes things smooth and spacey, but never slick – really layering the sound at a level that's somewhere in the Mizell family territory, but with a bit of a different vibe. Coke's percussion is wonderful – and the set features vocals from Errol Knowles, plus backing from The Waters, and guest instrumentation from both Joe Henderson on tenor and Gabor Szabo on guitar. The whole thing's great, and titles include the sublime groover "I Wouldn't Change A Thing", a sweet remake of Willie Bobo's "Fried Neckbones & Some Home Fries", and the tracks "Back Seat", "Runaway", "Hangin On", "Somebody's Callin", and "Diamond Dust/Vida".

Kip HanrahanDesire Develops An Edge ... CD
American Clave, 1983. Used ... $4.99
A really unique blend of Jazz, Latin, and world music influences – and one of the first albums ever by Kip Hanrahan! Hanrahan's records are always better than we expect – and we really have to give him credit for mixing together so many diverse influences, especially in the early 80s, when not that many folks were doing things like this! The record features players that include like minded jazzers like Steve Swallow and Arto Lindsay, Latin percussionists like Jerry Gonzalez and Milton Cardona, and even the legendary Jack Bruce, who sings on a few tracks. The result is a captivating blend of all elements involved, served up with a nice warm production style that doesn't stifle, but which gels everything nicely. Titles include "Two", "Far From Freetown", "Trust Me Yet?", "Nancy", and "Sara Wade". (Jazz, Latin) CD

Lecuona Cuban BoysDance Along With The Lecuona Cuban Boys ... LP
ABC/Paramount, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
This legendary Latin ensemble runs through a nice set of classic tracks by their founder Ernesto Lecuona. Candido sits in as a guest star on the session, giving their work a bit more of a conga punch than usual – and titles include "For Want of A Star", "Jungle Drums", "Siboney", "The Breeze & I", "Say Si Si", and "High In Sierra".
