✨✧ Nelson Gonzalez, Joe Mannozzi, and Charlie SantiagUnderstanding Latin Rhythms Vol 2 – Down To Basics ... LP
Latin Percussion Ventures, 1977. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This one's really living up to the "down to basics" in its title – as the record really just features spare percussion jams, mixed with a bit of electric piano – a really cool blend that's unlike anything else we can think of! The session features spoken introductions to different Latin rhythm styles – then moves into percussion interplay between Nelson Gonzalez and Charlie Santiago, plus very stark electric piano lines by Joe Mannozzi – on a keyboard that's quite different than the usual Fender Rhodes. Titles include "Timbale", "Bongo Drum", "Conga Drum", and "Rhythm Ensemble". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear, but looks great overall.)

✨✧ Jose MangualBuyu ... CD
Turnstyle/Latin Percussion Ventures, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic underground Latin jazz album from the 70s – a wonderfully warm session that beautifully mixes older rhythms and a range of soulful jazz styles! The album's one of the few cut as a leader by bongo player Jose Mangual – whose sweet-stepping rhythms really make the set groove – and the session also features great work from Tito Puente on timbales and vibes, Patato Valdez on congas, Luiz Ortiz on trumpet, Dick Meza on tenor, and Kimmy Knepper on trombone. Most tracks are in an acoustic mode, but slight electric touches warm things up nicely – making for a really unique Latin jazz groove that was years ahead of its time – and a vibe that still makes this album one that we go back for time and time again! Titles include the funky groover "Black & Brown Boogie" – which features guest work on keyboards by Richard Tee, plus a bit of vocals – and other instrumental tunes include "Mai Kinshasa", "Summit", "Chinatown", "Dreamy", "Bamba A Puerto Rico", and "Sunrise Prince".
