✨✧ Rodolfo AlchourronSanata Y Clarificacion Volumes 1 & 2 ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), 1972/1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cool collection of very unusual grooves from Argentine composer/guitarist Rodolfo Alchourron – part of a generation of groundbreaking musicians in his homeland that also included Lalo Schifrin and Gato Barbieri – yet unlike those artists, a talent that never achieved greater global fame! The first album here – the initial Santa Y Clarificacion set – is very much like something Lalo Schifrin might do, but even more offbeat – as it's a weird blend of jazzy instrumentation, funky rhythms, and spacious sounds that would definitely be right at home in a film score – yet which stretch out even more in the expanded space of the album's long tracks! Instrumentation includes Organ, tenor, alto, flute, and some great electric bass and drums – really romping at the bottom, and driving the tunes along wonderfully. There's a bit of wordless vocals at a few spare points – breezily grooving along – on titles that include "Clarificacion", "El Stanabancos", "No Divaguen", "Melopea", and "Pajaros Sueltos". The second album – Santa Y Clarificacion – has a similar groove, but one that goes out even more – almost a touch more of a fusion influence at points, although there's still some great horn charts that continue a soundtrack vibe. Horns cascade beautifully, falling into some great chord changes and washes of color that really warm things up – and titles include "Vals Trunco", "Esas Dos Cosas Benditas", "Casi Un Tango", "Vals En La Muy Sostenido", and "Algunos Dias Alguna Noches".

Julian Y Su ComboBuenaventura Con Julian Y Su Combo Sabor (180 gram pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Metropoli/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
The crazy look of the band on the cover might make you think you're getting something weird and wild, but the album's got a rock-solid sound that's right up there with the best of the South American scene – that vibe that some indie labels had during the 70s, where they were working a few years behind the New York groups – but at a level that means that things are very powerful throughout! These guys leap into the fray with a host of upbeat rhythms – all of which feel more like the modes right before salsa came into play, with small combo energy that seems inherited from the Joe Cuba Sextet! Jose Arboleda handles vocals, and titles include "Descarga A Lo Julian", "A Buenaventura", "El Que Siembra Su Maiz", "El Panadero", "Palo De Mango", and "Corralito De Piedra". LP also features the bonus tracks "Colorin Colorado" and "Salsa Y Bembe". LP, Vinyl record album
