✨✧ Joe CainLatin Explosion (aka Latin Au Go Go) ... LP
Time, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few albums ever issued as a leader by the great Joe Cain – a wonderful Latin arranger with a really mad ear for a groove! Cain's approach is often quite choppy in the rhythms – short, hard, and very very sharp – then topped with sweeter, jazzier lines – played on this set by Clark Terry on trumpet, Jerome Richardson on tenor and flute, and Frank Anderson on piano and some especially nice organ lines! Percussion is super-heavy throughout – played by Jose Mangual, Chocolate, and Marcelino Valdes with a vibe that's just right for the rhythms – and additional support is from Cachao on bass and Herbie Lovelle on drums. The grooves are incredible – quite different than anything else on Mainstream Records at the time, and even different than most of the New York scene – and titles include the amazing "It's A Mad Mad Mad Mambo (parts 1 & 2) (also known elsewhere as "Mambo Au Go Go") – a cut that sounds like some sort of crazy avant garde percussion banging, all made to keep in time to a mambo beat, with jazzy organ solos over the top. Other titles include "Mongo Mongo Baby", "Papa Bajo", "Que Paso", "Tanga Pa Katanga", and "Chunga A Go Go". LP, Vinyl record album

CandidoThousand Finger Man ... LP
Solid State, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Stone lost Latin funk! This is Candido's rarest – and it's a killer batch of conga-heavy grooves, recorded in the late 60s for Solid State, and featuring a very groovy set of mod Latin arrangements by Joe Cain. The band features organ, guitar, bass, horns, and some upfront conga solos from Candido. Tracks are longer than usual for this sort of album – and there's a lot of strange elements floating through the tracks, in a very nice way! Titles include "Thousand Finger Man", which has some especially firey conga breakdowns, plus "Jump Back", "Soul Limbo", "Tony's Theme (from Lady In Cement)", and "Come On Choo Choo Train". LP, Vinyl record album

Mauricio SmithBitter Acid ... LP
Mainstream, 1967. Very Good+ ... $29.99
A killer album of hard instrumental Latin soul tracks – one of the few albums ever done by funky reed player Mauricio Smith! On the set, Smith plays flute, alto, and soprano sax – and the record's filled with short little groovers that have a nice choppy sound, and lots of heavy conga work by Marcelino Valdes and Victor Pantoja! Other instrumentation includes organ, trumpet, and guitar – blasting out with some really mad rhythms, and very much in keeping with the crazy 60s work of Joe Cain, who arranged the whole thing. The album's got a sound that's very much in keeping with it's funky ghetto cover – and titles include "Hot Peppers", "Viva Guajira", "More Bread", "Mambo For Mauricio", "Puttin You Down", and "El Green Hornet". Excellent! LP, Vinyl record album

Joel HarrisonFree Country ... CD
High Note, 2003. Used ... $3.99
Joel Harrison's improvisational jazz interpretations of traditional and/or time-honored country songs. Harrison plays electric and steel, with vocals by Norah Jones (charts and hype be damned to hell, we truly love this girl) on "Tennessee Waltz" and "I Walk The Line", plus accompaniment by Uri Caine on piano, Tony Cedras on accordian, Sean Conly on bass and others. A great tribute to some great songs – ones that show just how far a seemingly simple tune can reach! Other tracks include "Hell Broke Loose In Georgia", "Sing Me Back Home", "Wayfaring Stranger", "Twelve Gates To The City", "Lonesome Road Blues" and more. CD
(Digipack has some edgewear & a sticker over barcode.)
