Willie ColonFantasmas ... CD
Fania, 1981. New Copy ... $8.99 12.99
A brilliant new move for Willie Colon – a set that goes even further than his mid 70s classics with Ruben Blades, and pushes Willie into a Pan-American consciousness carried off with ambitious musical vision! The sound is still salsa at the core, but Willie's also brought in bits of other South American influences – traces of styles from Columbia, Argentina, and most importantly Brazil – heard wonderfully on Willie's reading of Chico Buarque's excellent "Oh Que Sera"! The backings are full, and sometimes have large orchestrations – and the vocals are both proud yet somehow fragile at the same time. Titles include "Oh, Que Sera?", "Mi Sueno", "Celo", "Amor Verdadero", "Al Dormir", "Toma Mis Manos", and "Sueno De Papelote". CD

Ivan LinsNovo Tempo ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful album by Ivan Lins – truly one of his greatest records, and a real gem that stands out as one of the best in his already-excellent catalog! The set has Ivan stepping out strongly from his sound of the 70s – working with Gilson Peranzzetta in a set of arrangements that have touches of jazz and a deeply expressive soul that matches Lins' growing vocal confidence wonderfully. Lins' voice is in top form, and the material is extremely strong (in fact, most of the songs are so good, and so catchy, that we've hardly noticed that they weren't in English!) Titles include "Vira", "Arlequim Desconhecido", "Barco Fantasma", "Novo Tempo", and "Coracao Vagabundo". CD

Piero UmilianiL'Uomo Nello Spazio ... LP
Omicron/Dagored (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
One of the weirdest, wildest albums we've ever heard from the great Piero Umiliani – an all-electronic set, but one that's even more freewheeling than his famous To-Day's Sound record! The music is all played by Piero on his own electronic setup – with terms under the tunes like "pulsating", "hallucinations", "in the space", "primordial life", and "cosmic anguish" – all of which really give you an idea of the vibe he's going for here! The sound is sometimes dark, but hardly ever too noisy – and as with Umiliani's soundtrack material, the level of composition and performance is extremely thoughtful, and full of surprises – that strong sense of delight that makes us go back to Piero's records again and again over the years. Titles include "Polvere Cosmica", "Nello Spazio", "Approdo Lunare", "Pulsando", "Addio Alla Terra", "Nell'Ombra Di Plutone", and "Asteroide Fantasma". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousCoco May May – 1955 to 1962 Spanish Harlem Dancefloor Fillers – The Afro-Cuban Roots Of Boogaloo ... LP
Grossoi (Spain), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great Latin groovers from the end of the 50s and start of the 60s – all tracks that are tight, upbeat, and filled with a lively mix of rhythm and jazz – all at a level that's designed to showcase the sorts of modes that led to the development of Latin Soul and boogaloo a few years later! These tracks aren't your usual cha cha or charanga numbers – and instead, many of them have some pretty fierce percussion, and strong solos that break out from the pack and really give the music a lot of spirit – the kind of subtle hipper touches the younger scene was bringing to bear against the bigger, more standard orchestras of the period. Titles include "Dry Coconuts" by La Playa Sextet, "Coco May May" by Jack Costanzo, "Pachanga En Changa" by Joe Quijano, "A Gozar Timbero" by Cachao, "Conmigo" by Eddie Palmieri, "Guajira Y Tambo" by Ray Barretto, "Gueita Caiman" by Fantasmita, "Las Bobitas" by Roberto Faz, "El Divorcio" by Arsenio Rodriguez, and "Anabacoa" by Pio Leyva with Bebo Valdes. LP, Vinyl record album
