Chuy ReyesRhumbas – Arthur Murray Favorites (10 inch LP) ... LP
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99

Freddie RodriguezLa Versatilidad De Freddie Rodriguez ... LP
United Artists, 1967. Very Good ... $19.99
As the title might imply, this is a varied set of grooves from Latin guitarist Freddie Rodriguez. Some of the tracks are more like pop guitar instrumentals, with an electric 60's feel to them.

Mongo cooks mightily – working here at the Montreux Jazz Fest in 1971, with a soaring group that's even more spiritual than any of his records in the 60s!
