✨✧ Willie BoboJuicy (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hard soulful Latin from the great Willie Bobo! The record's an extremely tasty blend of cuts that mix hard Latin grooving with a swinging 60s pop feel – all filtered through the crossover genius of late 60s Verve. There's lots of great boogaloo groovers, shing-a-ling rhythms, and a tight no- ... read more CD

Latin soul percussionist Willie Bobo hits a new dimension here – singing as well as playing timbales, hitting a groovy groove that's perfect for his rough and ready vocals!

✨✧ Roberto FonsecaABUC ... CD
Impulse, 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most hard-hitting albums we've ever heard from pianist Roberto Fonseca – a set that deeply digs back into an older Afro-Cuban sound – as you might guess from the title's backward-spelling of Cuba! The music here is surprisingly rich and full – not just Cuban flavoring ... (Jazz, Latin) read more CD

Herbie MannFlautista – Herbie Mann Plays Afro-Cuban Jazz (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $19.99
A gem of a record from a time when flute Mann Herbie was really taking off – a set that shows his growing love of Latin rhythms, which are used to wonderful effect throughout! Mann had been recording straighter chamber jazz a few short years before, but there's a nicely unbridled feel to ... (Jazz, Latin) read more CD

Chico O'FarrillCuban Blues ... CD
Verve, 1950s. Used 2 CDs ... $14.99
Fantastic! Chico O'Farrill did some great Latin work for Verve, Norgran, and Mercury over the years – but most of it was only released on 10" LPs, and has only been the province of collectors for a number of years. Now, though, this killer 2 CD set brings together a whopping 45 sides ... read more CD

✨✧ Charlie ParkerSouth Of The Border ... CD
Verve, Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Believe it or not, this is a crackling batch of Latin jazz tracks, featuring the alto solos of Charlie Parker and (more importantly) the arranging genius of the great Chico O'Farrill. The material was originally issued on a number of different 10" jazz LPs – some under Parker's name, ... (Jazz, Latin) read more CD

✨✧ Dave PikeManhattan Latin ... CD
Verve, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real lost chapter in the career of vibist Dave Pike – an obscure one-off Latin session recorded for Decca in the mid 60s! The album was done in the years between Pike's first few early jazz sides and his later tripped-out sessions for MPS and Vortex – and features Dave leading a ... (Jazz, Latin) read more CD

✨✧ VariousMambo Mania Talkin' Verve ... CD
Verve, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Although the Verve label is probably best remembered for its mainstream jazz recordings, the label also cut some very fine Latin sides in their day, most of which were touched by the great jazz history of the company! There's material here from a surprising range of albums, nearly all of which we ... read more CD
