Buena Vista Social ClubBuena Vista Social Club ... CD
World Circuit/Nonesuch, 1997. Used ... $5.99
A contemporary legend in Latin music – one that was done in collaboration with the film of the same name – organized by Ry Cooder, directed by Wim Wenders, and put forth as a reminder to America that Cuban culture was still going strong, even decades after we turned our backs on the nation! The "social club" in the title is well-put – as there's a relaxed, easygoing approach to the music here – warmly collaborative efforts from some of the greats of the scene in Havana – many of whom were able to enjoy renewed global attention, thanks to the efforts of the record and film. The lineup features Ruben Gonzalez on piano, Eliades Ochoa on guitar, Cachaito on bass, and Guajiro on trumpet – plus famous vocal contributions from Ibrahim Ferrer, Compay Segundo, and Omara Portuondo. Titles include "Chan Chan", "Dos Gardenias", "El Carretero", "Candela", "Viente Anos", "El Cuarto De Tula", "De Camino A La Vereda", "Murmullo", and "Orgullecida". CD
Also available Buena Vista Social Club (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD 18.99

✨✧ Sonny FortuneBetter Understanding ... CD
Blue Note, 1995. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great later album from Sonny Fortune – still as wonderful here as he was in the 70s! Sonny blows alto, soprano, and flute – and the group also features work from Kenny Barron on piano, Jerry Gonzalez on trumpet, Robin Eubanks on trombone, and Billy Hart on drums! Titles include "Mind Games", "Laying It Down", "Awakening", "A Swing Touch", "Never Again Is Such A Long Time", "It Ain't What It Was", "It's A Bird", "Tribute To Holiday" and "Long Before Our Mothers Cried".

✨✧ Kenny Garrett with Pharoah SandersSketches Of MD – Live At The Iridium ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2008. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the most soulful sets we've heard from Kenny Garrett in years – thanks partly to the presence of Pharoah Sanders in his group! The tracks are all long and open, and really let both Garrett and Sanders get in plenty of solo space – often in ways that are a nice change from previous recordings. The lineup's a quintet – with Pharoah on tenor, and Kenny on both alto sax and bass clarinet, plus a bit of organ and synth as well – which makes for some sweet electric funky touches. Other players include Benito Gonzalez on piano and Fender Rhodes, Nat Reeves on bass, and Jamire Williams on drums – and titles include "The Ring", "Intro To Africa", "Wayne's Thang", and "Happy People".

✨✧ Ray MantillaRebirth ... CD
Savant, 2020. Used ... $12.99
Ray Mantilla is reborn, after a health crisis almost took him down – but to us, he's also returning to his roots – that rock-solid approach to Latin jazz that's made us love his records so much over the decades! And like the best of those sets, there's a mixture of complex ideas and organic execution going on here – sounds that really push past the obvious, and showcase Ray's sublime understanding of color and tone as much as rhythm – but which feel almost effortless in the hands of Mantilla and his group! Players include Ivan Renta on soprano and tenor, Jorge Castro on bartione and flute, Guido Gonzalez on trumpet, Mike Freeman on vibes, and Edy Martinez on piano and Fender Rhodes – all shimmering nicely on tunes that include "Mia", "Philly Mambo", "Cumbia Jazz Fusion Experimental", "Rebirth Bata Rumba Experimental", "Martinez", "Yuyo", and "Preciosa".

Omara PortuondoOmara Portuondo ... CD
World Circuit/Nonesuch, 2000. Used ... $3.99
The legendary Omara Portuondo is one of those Cuban music greats from years back – and one of a handful who were finally given some larger exposure to the American market during the Buena Vista Social Club project of the late 90s! It's not as if Omara had stopped performing – but because of the embargo on Cuban goods in the US for decades, which also led to an embargo on culture as well, Portuondo hadn't seen a standard release on our shores for many years – something that's nicely corrected by this set, which has Omara stepping away from the larger Buena Vista ensemble, and working in a nicely intimate mode, with work from Ruben Gonzalez on piano, Guajiro Mirabal on trumpet, and Cachaito on bass. Titles include "No Me Vayas A Enganar", "Ella Y Yo", "Canta Lo Sentimental", "Donde Estabas Tu", "La Sitiera", "He Perdido Contigo", and "El Hombre Que Y Ame". CD

VariousHipsters' Holiday – Vocal Jazz & R&B Classics ... CD
Rhino, Mid 40s/1950s/Mid 60s. Used ... $6.99
A pretty cool Christmas compilation – with none of the sappy stuff that usually gets in the way! This one's all-cool, all-hip all the way through – and it's got a mix of jazzy tunes that's bound to liven up any holiday party that's had a dose of way too much Johnny Mathis or Bing Crosby! Tracks include "Five Pound Box Of Money" by Pearl Bailey, "Be Bop Santa Claus" by Babs Gonzalez, "Christmas Spirit" by Julia Lee, "Hello Mr New Year" by The Coolbreezers, "Zat You, Santa Claus" by Louis Armstrong, "Blue Xmas" by Miles Davis & Bob Dorough, "Boogie Woogie Santa Claus" by Mabel Scott, "Jingle Bells" by Leo Watson, "Santa Baby" by Eartha Kitt, and "Santa Done Got Hip" by The Marquees. 18 tracks in all!

✨✧ VariousIncredible 2 – Blue Note DJ Mix By Muro – Hot Dog Breaks ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Way more than just a Blue Note mix – a seriously wicked batch of beats, breaks, and grooves – pulled from titles on Blue Note and a whole bunch of other EMI-related labels! The set's served up by DJ Muro, with a chopped-up beat-heavy approach that's different than his previous Incredible Blue Note set – much more hard and funky, with a focus on the best bits of the tunes, and a cut-up funky mixtape sort of feel overall! There's 29 tracks stuffed into one great set – with bits from tracks that include "A Day In The Life" by Les DeMerle, "I'm Just Not Ready For Love" by The Ikettes, "Deep Night" by Kokee Band, "Gotta Be Funky" by Monk Higgins, "It's Your Thing" by Lou Donaldson, "The Landlord" by Al Kooper, "I'm On My Way" by Candido, "Urizen" by David Axelrod, "In The Middle" by Grant Green, "Underground Railroad" by Gonzalez, "Tanga" by Som Tres, "Soul Symphony" by Three Sounds, "Oblighetto" by Jack McDuff, "Gotta Take It With You" by The Trend, and "Howlin For Judy" by Jeremy Steig.
