✨✧ Machito & His Afro Cuban OrchestraVacation At The Concord ... LP
Coral, 1958. Very Good ... $14.99
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.)

✨✧ Ray BarrettoHandprints ... CD
Concord, 1991. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A smoking later session from Ray – one of his best albums of the 80s and 90s, and recorded with a snapping Latin fusion groove that we really love! The sound is straight Latin jazz all the way – arranged with lots of dark overtones that dip and turn in a style that almost reminds us of some of the work of Bobby Vince Paunetto. The group's great, too – with Steve Slagle playing some wonderful angular passages on soprano, alto, and flute; driving keyboards and piano from Hector Martignon; and solidly rooted drum work from Ed Uribe – setting a great base for Ray to work more freely on congas and percussion. Titles include "Tercer Ojo", "Blues For Leticia", "Kwanza", "Handprints", "Santa Cruz", and "Jamprints". CD

Tito PuenteMambo Diablo ... CD
Concord, 1985. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A stone cooker from Tito Puente's great back to basics years of the 80s – a time when he was really moving towards the Latin jazz of his roots – working without any singers, or any contemporary gimmicks, and letting loose with tight combos and top-line jazz players! This set features Puente on vibes, timbales, and percussion – grooving nicely with the great Sonny Bravo on piano, whose bold lines definitely help shape the grooves – giving them plenty of New York 60s pulse, alongside work by Jimmy Frisuara on trumpet and trombone, Mario Rivera on soprano and tenor, and Ray Gonzalez on trumpet. Bobby Rodriguez handles bass, and Johnny "Dandy" Rodriguez brings in added percussion with congalero Jose Madara – and tracks include "Take Five", "Mambo Diablo", "Pick Yourself Up", "Eastern Joy Dance", "China", and "No Pienses Asi".

Tight, hard and straight ahead Latin jazz from one of the greats of the 80s!

Titles include "Co Co My My", "Fuerte", "Ixtapa", "Baila Mi Gente", "Alafia", and "No Llores, Mi Corazon". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Poncho SanchezSoul Of The Conga ... CD
Concord, 2000. Used ... $7.99
Even at this late date in his career, Poncho's still cooking on congas – with a tight band that features David Torres, Tony Banda, Jose Papo Rodriguez, and others, backing him up on this burning session of soulful Latin grooves, plus he's brought in a few ringers like Terrence Blanchard, Joey DeFrancesco and the Ortiz Brothers. Tracks include "Oye Lo", "Venga A Bailar Bailadores", "Haitian Lady", "Fania Funque (Co Co)", "Bodacious Q", "Asi Asi" and "Rumba De Po-tiz". CD

✨✧ Poncho SanchezTrane's Delight ... CD
Concord, 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Spanish Harlem OrchestraViva La Tradicion ... CD
Concord, 2010. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A soaring stormer from the Spanish Harlem Orchestra – a contemporary group, but one who plays with some really classic Latin jazz modes! The group's always been great, but this may well be their best album to date – full of rich tones, bold colors, and tight rhythms that keep things lively throughout – all recorded in a no-nonsense way that reminds us of those excellent Latin jazz sessions we used to love from the Cubop label. Pianist Oscar Hernandez is at the head of a lineup that features two trumpets, two trombones, sax, flute, and plenty of percussion – on cuts that include "Linda", "Nuestra Cancion", "Si Me Quieres Te Quiero", "Son De Corazon", "La Salsa Dura", "La Fiesta Empezo", and "El Negro Tiene Tumbao".

Cal TjaderCool Fire – A Fuego Vivo/Good Vibes ... CD
Concord, 1982/1984. Used 2CD ... $24.99
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
