Seemed like Joe was always in a mambo mood at the time he was making these sides for Tico – but that's A-OK with us, as the record's a corker – tight little grooves in Joe's best percussion/piano format! A few tracks even have some vibes, which makes for a nice sound – and titles ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original black label pressing, with deep groove. Cover has light wear, but no splits and is nice overall.)

Joe LocoRockin' Cha ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $6.99
A very nice album of tight hot Latin instrumentals, played by Joe Loco with his tremendous choppy approach to the piano. The title and notes seem to imply that there's a "rockin" sound to this one, but that's only because Joe wails so much, Mercury was trying to align the record with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Los Destellos are heading into orbit here – soaring to the heavens on their wonderful mix of cumbia rhythms and electric guitar!

A triple-time killer from the Colombian scene at the start of the 70s – one of those rare gems on Discos Fuentes that had the label setting a new sort of fire on its own, in comparison to the New York Latin generation!

Grosso! (Spain), Late 30s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP ... $34.99
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!

United Artists, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A tight little Machito album from the 60s – produced by Leroy Holmes, and done with a bit more punch than some of his other records from the time!

Coral, 1958. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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!

Timeless (Netherlands), 1983. Near Mint- ... $14.99
More recent than Machito's classic recordings, but done with a tight adherence to jazz that really makes the album sparkle! In a way, this set's much more of a no-nonsense Latin jazz affair than many of Machito's sides from the late 50s, 1960s, or 70s – as he's got kind of a back to basics ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

70s work from Machito – still very much in the mode of his classics from earlier years, but with an undeniable punch on a few numbers, thanks to the smoking salsa groove of the Coco Records label!

A blend of soulful styles from the mighty Macondo!

Brassy set of Latin sides recorded by Machito's trumpet player from the old days, Bobby Madera, who's probably best known to the world as the man who wrote "Mambo Inn". That track's on here, and so are the tracks "Mambo Pastel", "Basutoland", "Rhythmambo", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
