World Circuit/Nonesuch, 1997. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A contemporary legend in Latin music – one that was done in collaboration with the film of the same name – organized by Ry Cooder, directed by Wim Wenders, and put forth as a reminder to America that Cuban culture was still going strong, even decades after we turned our backs on the nation! The "social club" in the title is well-put – as there's a relaxed, easygoing approach to the music here – warmly collaborative efforts from some of the greats of the scene in Havana – many of whom were able to enjoy renewed global attention, thanks to the efforts of the record and film. The lineup features Ruben Gonzalez on piano, Eliades Ochoa on guitar, Cachaito on bass, and Guajiro on trumpet – plus famous vocal contributions from Ibrahim Ferrer, Compay Segundo, and Omara Portuondo.

A great later album from Sonny Fortune – still as wonderful here as he was in the 70s! Sonny blows alto, soprano, and flute – and the group also features work from Kenny Barron on piano, Jerry Gonzalez on trumpet, Robin Eubanks on trombone, and Billy Hart on drums! Titles include "Mind Games", "Laying It Down", "Awakening", "A Swing Touch", "Never Again Is Such A Long Time", "It Ain't What It Was", "It's A Bird", "Tribute To Holiday" and "Long Before Our Mothers Cried".

✨✧ Ruben Lopez FurstJazz Argentino/Jazz En La Universidad ... CD
Melopea/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1966/1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two rare albums from this great pianist – back to back on a single CD! First up is Jazz Argentino – key work from Ruben Lopez Furst, a wonderful pianist from the Argentine scene of the 60s – heard here on one of his greatest albums ever! Despite the local placement in the title, the set's got a really universal appeal – a quality that easily puts Baby Lopez Furst in the company of Bill Evans, Hampton Hawes, or a rare few imaginative pianists from up north! Furst's sense of color and timing are wonderful – ringing out fluidly, yet always with a sense of surprise that keeps us hanging on each new note – nothing that's ever hokey or heard-before – handled here with a vibrancy that's simply stunning. Many numbers are trio tracks, but the set also features guest trumpet and tenor on two tracks – and titles include "Israel", "Un Abajea Duriente", "Los Viejos", "Al Este Del Sol", "Sometime Ago", and "Cartas De Amor". Next is Jazz En La Universidad – one of the real highlights of the Argentine jazz scene of the 60s – a seminal album from pianist Ruben "Baby" Lopez – easily one of that country's greatest jazz musicians in the decade! Ruben's got a sound that opens up with the lyrical sense of space and tone first introduced by Bill Evans, but he's also more note-full at other moments – playing with a command of the piano that would have made him huge, had he recorded on the American or European scenes of the time! There's a warm balance between his instrument, the bass of Jorge Gonzalez, and drums of Nestor Astratta – one that goes past conventional piano trio modes, and which really reminds us of our favorite Saba/MPS sessions of the period. Titles include "Un Poco Alegre", "Hombre Amaestrado", "En Tu Dulce Modo", "Hermosoa Amor", and "Necesitare Alguien Mas". CD

✨✧ Kenny Garrett with Pharoah SandersSketches Of MD – Live At The Iridium ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2008. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most soulful sets we've heard from Kenny Garrett in years – thanks partly to the presence of Pharoah Sanders in his group! The tracks are all long and open, and really let both Garrett and Sanders get in plenty of solo space – often in ways that are a nice change from previous recordings. The lineup's a quintet – with Pharoah on tenor, and Kenny on both alto sax and bass clarinet, plus a bit of organ and synth as well – which makes for some sweet electric funky touches. Other players include Benito Gonzalez on piano and Fender Rhodes, Nat Reeves on bass, and Jamire Williams on drums – and titles include "The Ring", "Intro To Africa", "Wayne's Thang", and "Happy People".

Kirk Lightsey with Freddie HubbardTemptation ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... $16.99
A very hip group, and a wonderful meeting between trumpeter Freddie Hubbard and pianist Kirk Lightsey! We always like Kirk, but love him even more when he's working with a horn player – as his sound seems to catch fire, and move with even bolder notes than usual – which is definitely the case on the album's opener, a nice take on Hubbard's classic "Gibraltar" – in a spirit that continues strongly throughout! Bass is from Santi Debriano, drums are from Eddie Gladden, and Jerry Gonzalez plays percussion on one track – and Freddie's in that great 80s sound of his – a mode that's a return to the straighter hardbop of his Blue Note years, but with the phrasing learned during his 70s funk years – on titles that include "Gibraltar", "Evidence", "Brigitte", "Temptation", and "Society Red".

✨✧ Ray MantillaHigh Voltage ... CD
Savant, 2017. Used ... $11.99
For decades now, Ray Mantilla's been one of the few cats who can effortlessly fuse together Latin rhythms and jazz – creating the kind of music that's completely satisfying to fans of both styles, but all without ever resorting to any sort of easy cliches or overdone modes! Mantilla's the kind of leader who can let the players really do their thing, while still hanging together as a tightly rhythmic unit – driven on by his percussion as well as his direction – with a lineup that features Guido Gonzalez on trumpet, Jorge Castro on baritone and flute, Ivan Renta on soprano and tenor, Edy Martiez on Fender Rhodes and piano, Chuco Martinez on bass, and Diego Lopez on drums. The set also features great guest vibes from Mike Freeman on two tracks – and the whole thing's got a rock-solid, all-jazz vibe that soars out on tunes that include "Solar", "Ramona", "Exit 45", "The Gypsy", "Midnite Jazz Affair", "Comin Home Baby", "Cedar's Blues", and "Third Plane".

Ray MantillaRebirth ... CD
Savant, 2020. Used ... $12.99
Ray Mantilla is reborn, after a health crisis almost took him down – but to us, he's also returning to his roots – that rock-solid approach to Latin jazz that's made us love his records so much over the decades! And like the best of those sets, there's a mixture of complex ideas and organic execution going on here – sounds that really push past the obvious, and showcase Ray's sublime understanding of color and tone as much as rhythm – but which feel almost effortless in the hands of Mantilla and his group! Players include Ivan Renta on soprano and tenor, Jorge Castro on bartione and flute, Guido Gonzalez on trumpet, Mike Freeman on vibes, and Edy Martinez on piano and Fender Rhodes – all shimmering nicely on tunes that include "Mia", "Philly Mambo", "Cumbia Jazz Fusion Experimental", "Rebirth Bata Rumba Experimental", "Martinez", "Yuyo", and "Preciosa".

✨✧ William ParkerMigration Of Silence Into & Out Of The Tone World Vols 1 to 10 (10CD set) ... CD
Centering/Aum Fidelity, 2021. New Copy 10CD set ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible collection of work from the legendary bassist William Parker – not a package of older material, but a full ten albums' worth of new recordings done expressly for this set – showing Parker not only as a budding multi-instrumentalist over the space of the past few years – but also a very collaborative composer, with a much wider range of expression than anyone might have guessed a few decades ago! Parker is still a completely essential part of the avant jazz underground, but he's also emerging as a mature statesman – able to bridge both scenes and generations with material like this – a hugely collaborative effort that features contributions from Lisa Sokolov, Kyoko Kitamura, Ellen Christi, Jalalu Kalvert Nelson, Eri Yamamoto, Raina Sokolov Gonzalez, Andrea Wolper, the Universal Tonality String Quartet, and other groups as well. Each CD features a different side of Parker's creative genius – and together, the package is maybe the richest statement of his powers we've ever heard! CD

World Circuit/Nonesuch, 2000. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The legendary Omara Portuondo is one of those Cuban music greats from years back – and one of a handful who were finally given some larger exposure to the American market during the Buena Vista Social Club project of the late 90s! It's not as if Omara had stopped performing – but because of the embargo on Cuban goods in the US for decades, which also led to an embargo on culture as well, Portuondo hadn't seen a standard release on our shores for many years – something that's nicely corrected by this set, which has Omara stepping away from the larger Buena Vista ensemble, and working in a nicely intimate mode, with work from Ruben Gonzalez on piano, Guajiro Mirabal on trumpet, and Cachaito on bass. Titles include "No Me Vayas A Enganar", "Ella Y Yo", "Canta Lo Sentimental", "Donde Estabas Tu", "La Sitiera", "He Perdido Contigo", and "El Hombre Que Y Ame". CD

✨✧ John SantosArt Of The Descarga ... CD
Smithsonian Folkways, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
West coast Latin jazz legend John Santos digs even deeper than usual here – serving up a set of tracks that trace the roots of the Cuban descarga style, but all with some of the warmth and personality that have made his previous records so great! John's core group features the leader on percussion, Melecio Magdaluyo on saxes, John Calloway on flute and piano, Marco Diaz on trumpet and piano, Saul Sierra on bass, and David Flores on drums. But there's plenty of contributions from older Latin legends – like Jerry Gonzalez on trumpet, Orlando Maraca Valle on flute, and Orlando Torriente on vocals – part of an expanded lineup that also changes up the sound a bit too, in way that isn't strictly a recreation of the late 50s/early 60s descarga modes – but instead shows how much those roots have evolved to inform the modes of Latin jazz. Titles include "14 Mission", "Juego De Ajedrez", "Lo Tuyo No Va", "Descargarara", "Tichin", "Descarga Con Changui", and "Los Misterios". CD

Hundergrum/Floating Dream (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Far out psychedelia from the late 60s to mid 70s Spanish scene – rare grooves from small labels and private pressings by groups & artists like Juan Muro, Pedro Gonzalez, Microns, Marquez, Barbara, Tinglado and more! It's great stuff that covers a broad range of styles, from fiercly percussion jams with strains of funk, to some that skew closer to Latin soul rock with Hammond keyboard grooves. Includes "Vuestro Mundo" by Juan Muro, "Quiero Bailar" by Alcy Aguero Y Su Orquestra Pop, "Liberacion" by Microns, "Barahunda" by Marquez, "I Miss You" by Tinglado 13, "Distorsionando" by Greg Segura, "Smartypants" by Polos Opuestos and more. 14 tracks in all.

✨✧ VariousEnglish Weather ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.98
One of the coolest compilations we've ever heard from Ace Records – a really special set that follows in the tradition of their other St Etienne cafe/pub collections – and like those gems, a very different package than usual! This time around, the duo of Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs (who you'll also know from the Croydon International label) focus on an overlooked strand of British sounds at the start of the 70s – music that's moody, often jazzy, and almost always touched with a hint of blue – a kind of melancholic moment after the heady 60s – one that takes into stock all the great changes that had happened in the music, but delivers them in this laidback style that's completely unselfconscious. This isn't singer/songwriter material, and it's not progressive either – although it carries light traces of some of the best of those scenes – and if we had to try to dig for a tag for these tracks at all, we might use the term "folk funk" that was bandied about years ago – for cuts that have a vibe that's complex yet personal, and lots of jazziness in the phrasing. Titles include "Last Cloud Home" by The Orange Bicycle, "Love Song With Flute" by Caravan, "Moon Bird" by The Roger Webb Sound, "Early Morning Eyes" by The Peacock Band, "JTL" by T2, "Evening Shade" by Alan Parker & Alan Hawkshaw, "Windfall" by Offspring, "Never Let Go" by Camel, "Bottles" by Belle Gonzalez, "Watching White Stars" by The Way We Live, "Wise Man In Your Heart" by Daevid Allen, "Til The Christ Come Back Home" by Bill Fay, "Pamela" by Scot Mist, and "O Caroline" by Matching Mole – a song which perfectly sums up the mood of the set.

This one's all-cool, all-hip all the way through – and it's got a mix of jazzy tunes that's bound to liven up any holiday party that's had a dose of way too much Johnny Mathis or Bing Crosby! Tracks include "Five Pound Box Of Money" by Pearl Bailey, "Be Bop Santa Claus" by Babs Gonzalez, "Christmas Spirit" by Julia Lee, "Hello Mr New Year" by The Coolbreezers, "Zat You, Santa Claus" by Louis Armstrong, "Blue Xmas" by Miles Davis & Bob Dorough, "Boogie Woogie Santa Claus" by Mabel Scott, "Jingle Bells" by Leo Watson, "Santa Baby" by Eartha Kitt, and "Santa Done Got Hip" by The Marquees. 18 tracks in all!

Blue Note (Japan), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Way more than just a Blue Note mix – a seriously wicked batch of beats, breaks, and grooves – pulled from titles on Blue Note and a whole bunch of other EMI-related labels! The set's served up by DJ Muro, with a chopped-up beat-heavy approach that's different than his previous Incredible Blue Note set – much more hard and funky, with a focus on the best bits of the tunes, and a cut-up funky mixtape sort of feel overall! There's 29 tracks stuffed into one great set – with bits from tracks that include "A Day In The Life" by Les DeMerle, "I'm Just Not Ready For Love" by The Ikettes, "Deep Night" by Kokee Band, "Gotta Be Funky" by Monk Higgins, "It's Your Thing" by Lou Donaldson, "The Landlord" by Al Kooper, "I'm On My Way" by Candido, "Urizen" by David Axelrod, "In The Middle" by Grant Green, "Underground Railroad" by Gonzalez, "Tanga" by Som Tres, "Soul Symphony" by Three Sounds, "Oblighetto" by Jack McDuff, "Gotta Take It With You" by The Trend, and "Howlin For Judy" by Jeremy Steig.

✨✧ VariousSaoco Vol 2 – Bomba, Plena, & The Roots Of Salsa In Puerto Rico 1955 to 1967 ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from the Puerto Rican scene of the 60s – a key link between the music of Cuba and New York – and an outlet that became even more important after the fall of Havana! Back in the day, there was steady traffic between San Juan and uptown New York – as styles traded, grooves emerged, and whole worlds of Latin music grew into place in the process – showing a new, youthful style that was especially heavy on percussion – and which often had a much tighter small group approach that was quite a contrast to the bigger orchestras of the previous generation! The Puerto Rican groove was crucial in kicking off the Latin Soul generation, and the salsa one as well – and the music here is from a host of indie labels who really had an ear to the underground in these key years – and came up with plenty of greatness in the process. The double-length package is a great retrospective of these years – and features detailed notes in English and Spanish, lots of great images, and a smoking set of 28 tracks that includes "Que Culpa Tengo Yo" by Chivirico, "La Vieja Voladora" by Chuito El De Bayamon, "Guaracha Y Cha Cha Cha" by Moncho Lena, "Moliendo Cafe" by Cortijo, "Arrabalera" by Tonin Romero, "Muchachita Lozana" by Odilo Gonzalez, "Tras Tres Tragos" by Mario Ortiz, "Dolores" by Joe Cotto, "Candela" by Ramito, "Kijis Konar" by Mon Rivera, and "Que Chevere" by Kito Velez.
