Ray BarrettoHead Sounds ... LP
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
"Head Sounds" is a heck of a great way to describe this album – as it's filled with some of Ray's most mind-expanding cuts! The album kicks off with the tune "Acid", which you probably know from the album of the same name, but which still really does a great job of setting the pace here – and then it rolls into some fantastic longer cuts that really have a very strong jazz component. Ray and the group stretch out tremendously, hitting off-color notes and tones that almost make the record feel like one of Eddie Palmieri's jammers from the same time. 3 tracks on the set are over 8 minutes long, which should give you a good feel of the openness of the work – and titles include "Abidjan", "Espiritu Libre", "Drum Poem", and "Tin Tin Deo".

Latin SoulsBoo-ga-loo & Shing-a-ling ... LP
Kapp, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $36.99
One of the grooviest groups of the Latin Soul scene – but they'd have to be, given their name! The Latin Souls are a vocal group with a really soulful feel – a great link between the earlier harmony sounds that were bubbling under in Spanish Harlem, and some of the hipper rhythms that were hitting the scene in the late 60s – particularly the two dance modes pushed strongly in the title of the record! Many of the cuts have a nicely dark undercurrent – a bit like the best work of Ralph Robles – but the harmonies give the record a somewhat more sincere feel too, with echoes of Joe Bataan in the mix. The whole thing's great – with production from Pancho Cristal that's right up there with his other great Latin sides of the 60s. Titles include "Guajira Controversial", "Que Va", "Hey Lulu!", "The Party Is Over", "Place In the Sun", "La Banda", and the slammin' "Latin Souls Descarga"! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MachitoMachito – From Montuno to Cubop – Havana/New York Recordings 1939 to 1962 (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Grosso! (Spain), Late 30s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
A great look at the earliest years of Machito – a set that follows him from early Cuban recordings, through bebop experiments on the New York scene of the postwar years, to some of his classic group albums of the 50s! Machito always had a strong ear for the jazzier sides of Latin styles - and even when he wasn't working with American jazz musicians, he always had some great elements of that style in his music – as you'll hear on the 27 tracks on this nicely long set. The package brings together rare album tracks and singles – and titles include "Bum Bum Pachang", "Negro Nanamboro", "Quimbombo", "Bongo Fiesta", "Beerebee Cumbee", "El Rey Del Mambo", "Tanga", "Mi Padrino Me Manda", "Calientito", "Bim Bam Bum", "Nague", "Babarabatiri", "El Columpio", "Ven Conmigo Guajira", and "Zambia".

Bobby MatosGratitude ... CD
Life Force Jazz, 2007. Used ... $8.99
The cover lists the group as Bobby Matos' Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble – and you can definitely hear them live up to their name with a complex, soulful sound on this set! Bobby's a player who only seems to have come into his own in later decades of his music – great during his initial Latin soul years, but even more commanding as a leader and percussionist in the past decade or two – thanks to wonderful records like this! The album's definitely got some strong jazz elements throughout – thanks to a lineup that includes Theo Saunders on piano, Frank Fontaine on tenor, and Danny Weinstein on both trombone and violin – and the album also features guest vocals from Dee Dee McNeil on one track. Titles include "Bronx Trane", "Thad Like", "No Me Diga Na", "Uncle David's Egg Creams", "Basses Loaded", and "The Jazz Messenger". CD

Al EscobarAl Escobar ... CD
Alma, Late 60s. Used ... $13.99
Killer Latin soul from the great Al Escobar – maybe not one of the bigger names of the boogaloo generation, but certainly one of the best! The CD starts with work from Al's Modern Sounds album – a massive groover all the way through – filled with tight, choppy, soul-drenched sounds that easily rival the best from Joe Cuba or Ricardo Ray – with a similar blend of English and Spanish lyrics that really keeps things interesting! The instrumentation is superb – very sharp rhythms that almost veer towards funky at times – topped with great jazzy touches on horns, and some especially great lyrics on the English tunes. Titles include the massive original "Ape Walk" – plus great versions of "Tighten Up" and "The Horse", a medley of "Judy In Disguise/Chain Of Fools/Black Is Black", and the cuts "Mi Guajira", "Dejame Ya", and "Wave". Other tracks are from earlier vintage – more an early 60s Latin mode – but still pretty darn great, and titles include "Palm Springs Mambo", "Johnny's Special", "Oye Nicanor", "Lenny's Mambo", and "No Encuentro Palabras".

Pete & Sheila EscovedoSolo Two ... LP
Fantasy, 1977. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Funky Latin grooves from Sheila Escovedo – recorded in the decade before she hooked up with Prince and dropped the "scovedo" from her last name – when she was part of a hip Bay Area scene that also included her brother Pete! The album's got a great blend of funky fusion and Latin styles – served up with a sound that's right up there with the best on Fantasy Records from the time – a really unique fusion of modes that shows just how much trading of styles was going on in that scene during the 70s. Billy Cobham produced, with a definite ear for the percussion in the group – and the rest of the group features Mark Soskin on keyboards, Ray Obiedo on guitar, and some added horns to flesh out the sound nicely. Pete plays timbales, Sheila's on congas, and titles include "Bittersweet", "Clean Air", "Solo Tu", and "Fantasy Junction" – plus a nice version of Milton Nascimento's "Vera Cruz". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and a promo stamp.)
