Discos Fuentes/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99
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! In addition to the cumbia tracks you might expect, the set's also got ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MachitoKenya (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Roulette/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1957. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 44.99
A real corker from Machito – a set that's got a lot more bite and earthy fire than some of his other albums of the 50s – as you might be able to guess from the cover and the title! The record definitely lives up to the Afro-Cuban promise on the front – thanks to very hip ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MachitoLive At North Sea '82 ... LP
Timeless, 1982. Very Good- ... $4.99
Quite late in his career for Machito – but a great set nonetheless, with some hard-hitting Latin jazz arrangements that are some of his best work in years! Tracks are long and very jamming – performed live by a big band with Chocolate Armenteros on trumpet, and lots of nice long and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MachitoMi Amigo, Machito ... LP
Tico, 1958. Very Good ... $9.99
By the end of the 50s, Machito was a king of the Latin scene – and had an ability to both groove hard, and lay down sophisticated arrangements that were a lot stronger than those of other throwaway cha cha cha groups. This album's one of his best from the era – and it includes lots of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Later pressing on Forum. Cover has some ring & edge wear and a wide center split in the bottom seam. Label has some fading.)

MachitoMucho Mucho Machito ... LP
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! The format's similar to other Machito sessions – in that some tracks have Machtio singing with a larger backing group, and others focus on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MachitoNight Out With Machito ... LP
Tico, 1960. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Not necessarily a night "out" with Machito, as the material appears to be all studio recordings – but the album is a good example of the variety of Machito's successful group of the late 50s, and will give you an example of the kinds of tracks they'd run through in a live show. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MachitoWorld's Greatest Latin Band ... LP
GNP, Early 60s. Very Good ... $7.99
Fairly standard work from Machito, with a number of vocal cuts that feature either Machito or Graciela – but a record that really shines in the jazzy moments!

Bobby MaderaLook I'm Doing The Cha-Cha ... LP
ABC, Late 50s. Very Good ... $19.99
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

Peace & Rhythm, 2018. New Copy ... $18.99
Maku Soundsystem have a really great mix of modes – many elements that echo the Colombian roots of most group members, but fused strongly through New York modes that reflect their home of the past few years!

MaloDos ... LP
Warner, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
A seminal bit of Latin funk from the Bay Area scene of the early 70s – the second album from Malo, and an even harder-hitting jam session than the first! The group are really in top form here – taking off with Santana-inspired riffs that are filled with heavy percussion, soaring organ, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Herbie MannBig Boss Mann (aka Latin Mann) ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
An excellent album of Latin material from Herbie Mann – and proof that he's equally great in just about any setting! The album's a rare Columbia Records outing from Herbie – but it's easily one of his greatest of the 60s, thanks to some really smoking arrangements from Oliver Nelson ...

Brunswick, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A Latin Soul classic – but one that's a lot more obscure than some of the better-remembered albums on Fania and Tico from the late 60s! Orlando Marin is probably mostly known as an arranger, and a leader from the earlier years of the New York scene – but during the Latin Soul years he ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

EFG, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Percussionist Sabu Martinez is one of the all-time greats of Latin music – and this record is probably the rarest he ever cut!

Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $11.99
A strange little record – a bit different than usual from percussionist Sabu Martinez, and with a slight exotica feel too! There's a groove that's still mostly Latin – but, like most of Sabu's wonderful music, things go way past the obvious – as percussion takes hold, and Sabu ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
