An obscure and wonderful chapter in the career of Burt Bacharach – material penned for a 1967 TV musical starring Rick Nelson and Joanie Sommers – all of it perfect 60s Bacharach pop all the way through! The plot of the musical is a bit silly, but the performance isn't – tightly-c ... (Soundtracks, Now Sound)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Groovy batch of instrumental Latin cuts, with a sound that's a mixture of Latin soul and pop 60's instrumentation. Cugie's usual sound isn't that much in place, but that's ok, because tracks like "Thunderball", "Hang On Sloopy", "Tabasco", and "Soul Sauce" ... (Latin, Now Sound)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Very groovy stuff from Cugie! It's the late 60s, and he's got more of a pop Latin groove than earlier – and lays down some nice peppy covers of pop material, plus a few other Latin standards.

One of the coolest albums ever from this legendary trumpeter – a set that's got a strongly Latin flavor, and which provides a very unique setting for Jonah's horn! The backings feature loads of great elements – dreamy piano lines, some nice vibes, and plenty of Latin percussion to set ... (Jazz, Now Sound)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Trumpter Rafael Mendez plays lead solo on this set of dreamy Latin tunes – a bit more flowery than some of the more hard-hitting stuff that was coming out on the Decca label at the time. Tracks have a Latin orchestral feel – and titles include "Malaguena Salerosa", "Zapat ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
