Buena Vista Social ClubBuena Vista Social Club ... CD
World Circuit/Nonesuch, 1997. Used ... $5.99
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. Titles include "Chan Chan", "Dos Gardenias", "El Carretero", "Candela", "Viente Anos", "El Cuarto De Tula", "De Camino A La Vereda", "Murmullo", and "Orgullecida". CD

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".

Omara PortuondoOmara Portuondo (180 gram purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
World Circuit, 2000. New Copy ... $30.99 32.98
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited purple vinyl pressing – with bonus 12 page booklet of notes!)

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ 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
