Machito & His Afro Cuban OrchestraVacation At The Concord ... LP
Coral, 1958. Very Good ... $9.99
A great document of the crossover between the New York Latin scene and the Catskills – the upstate resort community that was as important to the Latin groups as the uptown clubs! Like many groups of the period, Machito's found a heck of a lot of work in the Catskills during the 50s – most notably at the Concord Resort, paid tribute to by this set – which includes photos of famous Concord staffers that include swimming instructor Buster Crabbe and golf pro Jimmy Demarest! But apart from that gimmicky approach, the album's actually a strong one for Machito – showing the kind of grooves that helped his 50s group cross over big – a mix of mambo and early cha cha tracks that include "Patricia", "Guaglione", "Torero", "Cha Cha Cha Loco", "Cotillon Mambo", and "Mambo La Concord". LP, Vinyl record album
(Small orange label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Poncho SanchezChile Con Soul ... CD
Concord, 1990. Used ... $7.99
A brilliant set of Latin jazz from Poncho Sanchez – proof that he was one of the few musicians who really kept the classic sounds going during the 80s! The album's got a tight small group format that benefits from some especially great horn work from Gene Burkert on alto and tenor, Sal Cracchilo on trumpet, and Art Velsasco on trombone – all players who are often arranged with a real sharpness on the heads – that modern edge that first started coming strongly into Latin jazz during the years of Eddie Palmieri's best work. Charlie Otwell's the pianist on the date, and he contributed some great tunes to the record – including "Song For Cal", "A Night In London", "Chile Con Soul", "Nueva Charanga", and "Quieto". Tito Puente plays some guest timbales – and other titles include "Soul Burst", "Mama Guela", "Con Migo", "Ti Pon Pa", and "Cold Sweat/Funky Broadway". CD

✨✧ Poncho SanchezSoul Sauce – Memories Of Cal Tjader ... CD
Concord, 1995. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little tribute to vibist Cal Tjader – handled by a percussion-heavy combo that really matches the vibe of Tjader's Latin classics from the 60s! The group features Poncho Sanchez on congas and additional percussion – but pianist David Torres is the musical leader of the set, and really has a great ear for the kind of spacious, well-timed rhythms that always made Cal's record's so great. Ruben Estrada handles vibes, and the set also features alto, tenor, and flute from Scott Martin, trombone from Alex Henderson, and trumpet from Stan Martin. Titles include "Soul Sauce (Guachi Guara)", "Tropicville", "Somewhere In The Night", "I Showed Them", "Song For Cal", "Tu Crees Que", "Leyte", "Liz-Anne", "Poinciana Cha Cha" and "Oran". CD

Poncho SanchezTrane's Delight ... CD
Concord, 2019. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
Poncho Sanchez is a genius – one of the leading lights of the west coast Latin scene at the end of the 70s, and a musician who's never failed to give us his best over the decades – so much so, that he may well be one of the few (along with Eddie Palmieri) who've continued to keep the jazz sound of their style growing strongly during the 21st Century! This album's an instant treasure – a nod to the greatness of John Coltrane, as you'd guess from the title – but a record that's really as distinct and powerful as Poncho's best from his older catalog – really creatively put together, with a focus not just on rhythms, but on really well-spun, well-conceived solos – modern on the edges, but swinging throughout – with work from a group that includes Francisco Torres on trombone, Ron Blake on trumpet, Robert Hardt on alto and tenor, and Andy Langham on piano. Torres handled the arrangements, and the album's got all the percussion you'd expect from a Sanchez album too – on titles that include "Soul Bourgeoisie", "Liberia", "Giant Steps", "Yam'mote", "Trane's Delight", "Todo Termino", "Sube", and "Blue Train". (Jazz, Latin) CD

✨✧ Mongo SantamariaMucho Mambo Mongo ... CD
Snapper/Concord (UK), Late 80s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A great look at some lesser-known years in the career of Mongo Santamaria – tracks recorded in the late 80s for the Concord/Picante label, most of which are done in a pretty sweet Latin jazz mode! The style here is almost a bit more back to basics than Mongo in the 70s – and although some of the tracks have electric elements (usually keyboards), the main focus of the numbers is straight Latin jazz jamming – often with Mongo's congas firmly in the lead, supported by great horn work from players who include Bobby Porcelli on flute and alto sax, Ray Vega on trumpet, and Bob Quaranta on piano. Marty Sheller arranged most of the tracks on the set – and the 2CD package features 23 tracks that include "Oasis", "Soca Mi Nice", "Cu-bop Alert", "Quiet Fire", "Cookie", "Papa Willie", "Home", "Philadelphia", "Ponce", "Ibiano", "Juan Jose", "Afro Blue", "Ole Ola", "Mother Jones", "Aged In Soul", "La Manzana", "Sweet Love", and "Smooth Operator".

Cal TjaderCool Fire – A Fuego Vivo/Good Vibes ... CD
Concord, 1982/1984. Used 2CD ... $14.99
Two sweet very late Tjader albums on two cds – at a great price! A Fuego Vivo is a live septet set with the latin vibes master out front of Mark Levine on keys, the great percussionist Panco Sanchez on congas, and Gary Foster on alto and flute. It's a pretty atypically frenetic set for such a late date – with wonderfully tight, yet still quite jamming takes on "Serenita", "Ponco Con Dos Amigos", "Mindanao", "Tesoro", "Santo Domingo", "Naima" and "The Continental". Good Vibes is a very nice set of mellow west coast Latin vibes – sort of an updating of his classic 50s San Francisco groove on Fantasy. The host of California players includes Roger Glenn, Poncho Sanchez, and Gary Foster. The record features a remake of Cal's big hit from the 60s – "Guachi Guaro (Soul Sauce)" – plus the tracks "Doxy", "Cuban Fantasy", "Good Vibes", and "Shoshana". A really nice, lovingly assembled package of late Tjader – with vintage quality of material and attention to detail! (Jazz, Latin) CD
