Bobby Vince PaunettoModern Sound Of Bobby Paunetto/El Sonido Moderno ... LP
Madri Gras, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of our favorite Latin jazz albums ever – and a truly amazing record! Bobby Pauntteo, aka Bobby Vince Paunetto, is probably best known for his groundbreaking Latin fusion albums of the NuYorican era – but this rare gem from the 60s shows that he was a really forward thinker, even at ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Armando PerazaWild Thing ... LP
Skye, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The only album ever cut by conga player Armando Peraza – the killer percussionist who worked with Cal Tjader in the 60s! The album's got a very similar feel to Cal's work of the time – blending together jazz, Latin, and groovy 60s rhythms – with lots of percussion on the bottom, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

PerujazzPerujazz ... LP
Vampi Soul (Spain), 1987. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A very cool group from Peru – one that's as far-reaching as it is funky, thanks to a huge amount of experience and talent from all of its individual members! The core force here might be the electric bass of Enrique Luna, which creates a pulse on all of the numbers, even when the ... (Jazz, Latin) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Pucho & The Latin Soul BrothersJungle Fire! ... LP
Prestige/BGP (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 19.99
One of the greatest albums by this funky Latin combo! The record differs from some of their earlier Prestige albums in that the tracks are longer, more instrumental, and have a hard fuzzy electric groove. The band jams hard in a way that's more like some of the funk combos of the early 70s, than ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tito PuenteNight Beat ... LP
RCA, 1957. Very Good- ... $8.99
One of Tito Puente's best sides for RCA – a really jazzy effort that was cut with a top-shelf list of players! The groove's a bit different than some of Tito's other work – but in a good way, and one that has him stretching past straight Latin to mix in a heavy dose of jazz – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove.)

Tito PuenteTito Puente & His Concert Orchestra ... LP
Tico, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An excellent set from Tito – very funky, unlike most of his other work from the time! The record has a great electric vibe to it – thanks to a hip bass player in the group, to Charlie Palmieri, who plays organ and electric piano on the record, and to Tito himself, who's never sounded ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tito PuenteTop Percussion ... LP
RCA, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the greatest Tito Puente albums from the 50s, and a spare percussion jam session that's right up there with his legendary Puente In Percussion album! The group features Mongo Santamaria, Bill Correa, Julito Collazo, and Enrigue Marti on percussion with Tito – and the only other ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Louie RamirezTipico ... LP
West Side Latino, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An early 70s killer from Louie Ramirez – and a striking return to traditional styles after his work in the Latin Soul era! Louie shows that he can keep the groove as well as any young salseros, and the record's a mix of tracks done in an early 70s trad groove, with a few more jazzy elements. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ricardo RayJala Jala Y Boogaloo ... LP
Alegre, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Very groovy work – and one of the best-selling albums of the Latin Soul era! During the 70s, Ricardo Ray was best known for his salsa work – but back in the 60s, he was really swinging around in the early blend of boogaloo and shing-a-ling styles! The set's got a really frenetic feel ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ricardo RayJala Jala Y Boogaloo Vol 2 ... LP
Alegre, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An amazing follow up to Ricardo Ray's first album of Jala Jala and Boogaloo tracks – a real killer Latin soul set that's even better than the first! The record's got a full-on style that kicks in from the very first note – a blend of uptight Latin tracks and some very groovy 60s-styled ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ricardo RayLet's Get Down To The Real Nitty Gritty ... LP
Alegre, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A very wild album from Ricardo Ray – sort of a mix of Latin soul styles in the mode of work by Mongo Santamaria, but a lot more messed up! The album's got a number of 60s soul covers – but they're done here by Ricardo in kind of a party Latin mode, touched with a bit of garage soul ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chollo Rivera & The Latin Soul DrivesBy Chollo ... LP
Cotique, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An obscure classic from the Latin Soul generation – the standout set recorded by the young Chollo Rivera and his strangely-named group The Latin Drives! The set's got equal parts soul and equal parts Latin – in a way that's similar to some of Joe Bataan's albums for Fania from the same ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hector RiveraReturn Of Hector Rivera Y Su Orquesa . . . Y Vuelve ... LP
West Side Latino, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A classic set from Hector Rivera – one in which he shifts back to more traditional Latin styles after his Spanish Harlem sets of the 60s! The record has a strong nascent salsa groove – and features a great band, with Hector's piano bouncing along on the top, and a four-trumpet line ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Royal JestersEnglish Oldies (with bonus download) ... LP
Numero, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $20.99 24.99
Really wonderful work from the Texas scene of the 60s – not the heady psych or garage usually associated with the state, nor the more Latin-inflected modes from the border – but instead a unique batch of music that feels more like work from either coast, and which comes across with a ...

Mongo SantamariaEl Pussy Cat ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Very Good ... $9.99
A really pivotal album in the career of Mongo Santamaria – one that has Mongo stripping down the groove, kicking up some jazz, and mixing together soulful styles that brought him to the top of the Latin crowd of the 1960s! There's a tightness here that goes beyond any of Santamaria's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mongo SantamariaFuego ... LP
Vaya, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of Mongo Santamaria's best albums from the 70s – and one of his funkiest too! The record's got a sweet electric groove that sounds mighty nice next to the Latin jazz arrangements on the set – almost in the feel of some of Candido's funky work from the time, but possibly even ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Battle, 1962. Very Good ... $16.99
A seminal moment in the career of Mongo Santamaria – and probably the first record to show that he was destined for greatness! As you might guess from the title, the set features Mongo's key recording of Herbie Hancock's "Watermelon Man" – served up here in a sharp-edged ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Setenta featuring Joe BataanParis To Nueva York ... LP
Latin Big Note (France), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99
A French combo, but one who really love the best styles of 70s Latin from the New York scene – particularly the funky current that was only handled by a few great acts at the time! These guys effortlessly mix electric bass, keyboards, and guitar with rootsier elements on percussion – ... (Deep Funk, Latin) read more LP, Vinyl record album
