Joe Cuba SextetHangin' Out/Vagabundeando ... LP
Tico/Craft, Mid 1960s. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
Killer combo work from the great Joe Cuba – a set recorded a few years before his big fame of the Latin Soul years – but in a way that shows how Joe was already shaking up the Latin scene in New York! After a generation when larger bands were seen as better, Joe works here with just a sextet – yet packs more of a punch than a Latin lineup with more percussion and horns! And in a style that would already open the door to the Spanish Harlem generation, Joe features some English language vocals on the set sung by the young Jimmy Sabater – replaced by the great Cheo Feliciano on the Spanish language tunes. The whole thing is wonderfully lively – a leaping blend of piano, percussion, bass, and even vibes – on titles that include "Oye Bien", "Flaco's Cha", "Nina Nina", "Trip To Mamboland", and "I Need You".

✨✧ Sexteto FantasiaEstamos En Algo ... LP
El Palmas (Spain), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sharp little cooker from the Venezuelan scene of the late 60s – a record that's filled with great grooves, and done in a style that's very much like the Joe Cuba Sextet of a few years before – a combo that the group is likely trying to evoke with their name and image on the cover! Things are really stripped down here – lots of fast-stepping percussion, hard-driving piano, and slight touches of flute and guitar – all to serve a range of grooves that moves from late pachanga to Latin Soul – as the set has two great boogaloo numbers, and one great jazzy instrumental too! Titles include "Lulu", "Panchita", "Mi Grupo", "Algo Sabroso", "Fantasia 68", "Pior Es Na", "Los Asomados", and "Estamos En Algo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sexteto CaracasRitmo Y Sabor De Fiesta ... LP
Diana/El Palmas (Spain), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An obscure album from the scene in Venezuela at the end of the 60s – served up by a really great small combo who seem to have absorbed all the lessons that Joe Cuba brought to Latin music! The set crackles with the lively vibe of some of Joe's sextet sessions from a few years before – with piano and guitar from Abiezer Daubeterre, timbales from Jesus Osuna, and vocals from Alfredo Antonio – a nicely versatile singer who can soar soulfully on the more upbeat numbers, but hit the right sort of mood at mellower moments too. There's a number of great guaguanco tracks on the set – and titles include "Soul Crazy", "Cuidado", "Ahorita No", "Baila China", "Rico Guaguanco", "Rumba Sabrosa", and "Criticona".

✨✧ VariousHit The Bongo – The Latin Soul Of Tico Records ... LP
Tico/Craft, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A massive batch of boogaloo gems – all wrapped up in one mighty package! Tico Records was one of the first great New York indie labels to focus on Latin music in the postwar years – and by the time of the huge late 60s boom in the world of Latin Soul, the label were definitely in a great position to turn out some killer work from a variety of artists! Some of the label's artists were aging, but reinvigorated by the energy of the younger generation – who also got access to the top shelf Tico presentation, as they brought in some of the best soul styles from East Harlem to trim things down from the larger Latin ensembles of the previous generation, and really send things home with a funky sort of groove. This set's a great overview of these key years at Tico – and titles include "Sock It To Me" and "Psychedelic Baby" by Joe Cuba, "Tighten Up" and "The Horse" by Al Escobar, "Fever" by La Lupe, "Be's That Way" and "Bobo Do That Thing" by Willie Bobo, "El Watusi" and "Babalu" by Ray Barretto, "Hit The Bongo" and "Coye Como Va" by Tito Puente, "My People" by Joe Panama, "Come An Get It" and "The African Twist" by Eddie Palmieri, "Aquarius/Let The Sun Shine In" by Celia Cruz & Tito Puente, "Madrid" by Candido, "Times They Are A Changin" by Jimmy Sabater, "El Pito" and "Bang Bang" by Joe Cuba, "Fat Mama" and "TP's Shing A Ling" by Tito Puente, and "Yes I Will (part 1)" by Gilberto Sextet.

✨✧ Willie RodriguezWillie Rodriguez Swings ... LP
Andale, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Stunning sounds from Willie Rodriguez – easily one of the hardest, heaviest leaders on the 60s scene in New York! The record is a live one, but has the focus and intensity of Willie's best studio work for Fonseca – red hot grooves that are a fusion of Willie's Puerto Rican roots with some of the best pre-salsa modes of the time – a vibe that's a lot like the Joe Cuba Sextet at their best, with blistering piano and percussion in the rhythms, and some tight trumpet soaring out over the top! There's a few mellower tracks, but most numbers are groovers – and titles include "Gua Guanco #1", "Dolor Y Pena", "La Mulata Mariana", "Dame Un Chance", "El Velorio", "Ruby", and the great "Descarga".

✨✧ VariousGozalo – Bugalu Tropical Vol 4 ... CD
Mag/Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An ear-opening collection of work from the Peruvian scene of the late 60s – kind of a secret hotbed of Latin grooves, at least to our American ears – and one that was overflowing with some of the best elements of the small combo scene at the time! These guys clearly take a lot of inspiration from the groundbreaking material of the Joe Cuba Sextet, but they also move the music in lots of other directions too – sometimes with a bit of cumbia in the rhythms, other times more of a descarga mode, and almost always with a lot of jazz instrumentation over the top. There's plenty of the soulful elements you'd expect from the boogaloo reference in the title, but there's also lots more too – served up in a set of 28 gems from the Mag label, with titles that include "Kintos Instrumental" by Los Kintos, "Saludo Maracaibo" by Pedro Miguel Y Sus Maracaibos, "Cumbayea" by Mario Allison Y Su Combo, "La Guarachera" by Nico Estrada Y Su Sonora, "Malambo" by Los Diablos Rojos, "La Charanga Del Espacio" by Carlos Pickling Y Orquesta, and "Busco Una Chiquita" by Coco Lagos Y Sus Orates.
