✨✧ Bola De NieveBola De Nieve Con Su Piano ... LP
Montilla, 1930s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Compilation of old (30s?) material by Cuban singer/pianist Bola De Nieve, put together as part of a "Cuban Folklore" series by Montilla. The tracks are very spare, and extremely haunting – as Bola's vocal style is unlike anyone else's. Mixed with his spooky piano playing, the tracks on here are a real treat – even if they are quite different from our usual Latin stock. Titles include "Baro", "Corazon", "No Te Importe Saber", "El Botellero", and "Merce". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later orange label pressing.)

Machito & His Afro Cuban OrchestraVacation At The Concord ... LP
Coral, 1958. Near Mint- ... $16.99
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
(Maroon label stereo pressing with deep groove.)

Eddie PalmieriMolasses ... LP
Tico, 1967. Very Good ... $24.99
Nothing slow and sticky here – because Eddie Palmieri is really hitting his groove by this point in his career – soaring along in a dark blend of jazz and Latin elements, with a fair bit more complicated modes than most of his contemporaries! There's a sophistication here that's really wonderful – and light years ahead of Eddie's albums of a few years before. Yet the album's never too bogged down in its own importance that it fails to groove – as most of the numbers here are killer groovers that burst out with raw energy that's perfect for a Latin dancefloor! Barry Rogers and Jose Rodrigues play twin trombones, Manny Oquendo is on timbales, and George Castro plays flute – but Eddie's really the star of the set with his incredibly bold lines on piano! Vocals are by Ismael Quintana, and titles include "Melao Para El Sapo", "You're Gonna Hear From Me", "Tirandote Flores", "Campesino", "Bombonsito de Pozo", and "Carnaval en Camaguey". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original stereo pressing. Cover has a split top seam, some surface wear, and a light stain on the spine.)
