Jack CostanzoLatin Fever ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $54.99
One of the greatest albums of Latin Jazz ever recorded on the west coast during the 50s – and a landmark session from Jack "Mr Bongo" Costanzo! The album well earns its "fever" claim – as the set smokes from the very first note – Jack's bongos calling the pace ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Golden Tone, 1957. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Great Latin work by one of the most enigmatic Latin bandleaders on the west coast! The record is the same as the one that was issued on the TOPS label – but is issued here on the also-budget Golden Tone imprint.

Cuarteto D'Aida con Chico O'FarrillEvening At The Sans Souci ... LP
RCA, 1957. Very Good- ... $19.99
The groovy Cuarteto D'Aida were sort of a Cuban version of the Quarteto Em Cy – in that they took a basic American jazz harmony vocal style (from groups like the Four Freshmen or Hi-Los), and gave it a all-female reading, with Latin grooves to change up the sound nicely! The legendary Omara ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tico, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $28.99
The Soul of Spanish Harlem – and the upbeat sound of the Joe Cuba Sextet – a hard-to-find album recorded just before the dawn of the classic Latin soul era!

Tico, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A Latin classic from the word "bang"! This album was the one that busted Joe Cuba out of the Latin ghetto – into the sound of 60s soul, early funk, and beyond. The record's a stone winner – filled with boogaloo tracks delivered by Joe's firey young sextet, a killer ensemble ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
