A superior second volume of tropical cumbia from Vampi Soul – and a more expansive set than the first one, too! The vast majority the the great stuff here comes from the psych and immediate post-psych years– and it has the tripped-out sounds to show for it – but those are ...

Herbie MannLatin Mann – Afro To Bossa To Blues ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An excellent album of Latin material from Herbie Mann – and proof that he's equally great in just about any setting! The album's a rare Columbia Records outing from Herbie – but it's easily one of his greatest of the 60s, thanks to some really smoking arrangements from Oliver Nelson ...

Joe LocoDance! – Joe Loco & His Pachanga Band ... LP
Sunset, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A solid groover from Joe Loco – cut in a pachanga style, as you'd guess from the title – but like all of his work at the time, the kind of a session that's really driven by his tight work on piano, no matter what the rhythm! Joe's heavy hand on the keys makes any sort of a record a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie CanoHere Is The Fabulous Eddie Cano ... LP
Reprise, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $8.99
Not as all-out Latin as some of Eddie's other records – but a killer batch of tunes played in his firey style! Eddie's a monster on the piano – hitting the keys with intensely rhythmic lines, backed here by bass, drums, and percussion, and riffing in a style that's at once fast and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Shorty RogersAfro-Cuban Influence ... LP
RCA, 1958. Very Good ... $7.99
A wonderful album of Latin grooves from Shorty! The record is one of his best, and features a whopping array of percussionists – including Carlos Vidal, Modesto Duran, and Mike Pacheco all coming into play with Shorty's west coast style of arrangements, tweaked greatly here to pick up an ...

Horoscopa, 1973. Very Good- ... $34.99
Obscure bit of Puerto Rican salsa, by a group led by Nacho Sanabria, and with vocals by Lisedia Sanjurjo. The group is small, and the sound is fairly hard, with some nice firey piano. Tracks include "Arroz Con Manteca", "Bim Bim Bom Bom", "Salsa Caliente", "Sabor ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mongo SantamariaAll Strung Out ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good ... $8.99
Killer Latin soul from Mongo! At some level, it might be hard to keep track of his late 60s sides for Columbia – but all you have to know is that they're all great, filled with pop Latin soul grooves that pushed way past his contemporaries, dancing around the conga with tight arrangements by ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

TNT OrchestraTogether ... LP
Disco International, 1977. Sealed ... $14.99
Surprisingly nice album that has Tito Ramos and Tony Rojas reuniting in a crackling session of 70s salsa that mixes English and Spanish lyrics, both with the kind of soul that the band was famous for in the 60s. Tracks include "Hello My Love", "Los TNT", "La Mujer ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Madri Gras, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $8.99
One of our favorite Latin jazz albums ever – and a truly amazing record!

Perez PradoDance Latino ... LP
RCA, 1965. Very Good ... $9.99
A monster groover in the 50s, Perez kept putting out excellent work long into the 60s – as this tasty 1965 RCA session will attest! The album's a nice mix of cha cha and uptempo tracks, with some cuts that are standards, and others that sort of tight Latin pop that Prado was so good at. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A mad mix of Latin and funky rhythms – a 70s classic from the Belgian group Chakachas!

Hector Lavoe's vocals are wrapped tightly and beautifully here in Willie Colon production – and the album's one of the classics from the pair recorded at the height of Lavoe's solo career!

Limelight, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A killer little set from Les McCann – one of his greatest records of the 60s, thanks to a fair bit of Latin Soul influences!

Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good ... $3.99
A collection of tunes that Cugat has made famous but that are updated with what the liner notes call a "60s rhythm" – which seems to mean that some songs now have a Bossa Nova edge to them. There are a total of 12 songs and they range from being bossa, cha-cha, rhumba, bolero and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
