Dom Um RomaoSpirit Of The Times ... LP
Muse, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An incredible set of Brazilian jazz – one of the few albums that percussionist Dom Um Romao recorded as a leader, and sublime all the way through! The record's got a wonderful blend of funky fusion and Brazilian percussion – and features a group from two continents that includes Sivuca on organ, Dom Salvador on electric piano, Joe Beck on guitar, Jerry Dodgion on alto sax, Lloyd McNeill on flute, and Mauricio Smith on tenor, soprano, and flute. Includes the percussion jammer "Shake (Ginga Gingou)", the modal groover "Wait on the Corner", and the lively scatting tune "The Angels" – but the whole album's great, and other tracks include "The Salvation Army", "Kitchen", and "Lamento Negro". LP, Vinyl record album

Mongo SantamariaEl Pussy Cat ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Good+ ... $4.99
A really pivotal album in the career of Mongo Santamaria – one that has Mongo stripping down the groove, kicking up some jazz, and mixing together soulful styles that brought him to the top of the Latin crowd of the 1960s! There's a tightness here that goes beyond any of Santamaria's previous albums – a no-nonsense approach that makes for some incredibly hard-hitting numbers – heavy on the conga, but also featuring strong piano lines from Rodger Grand, trumpet from Marty Sheller, flute and tenor from Hubert Laws, and alto sax and baritone from Bobby Capers! This small combo provides pretty much all of the instrumentation for the record – and there's no added tricks or gimmicks, just hard-grooving Latin jazz at its best! Titles include "El Pussy Cat", "Together", "Black Eyed Peas", "Ritmo Negro", "Sarai", "Hammer Head", and "Afro Lypso". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has seam splitting and some pen. Label has some pen.)

✨✧ Jose CurbeloWine, Women & Cha Cha ... LP
Fiesta, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of those great lost Latin piano albums on Fiesta, with hard angular orchestrations, and heavy solos throughout. The groove's Cha Cha, and tracks include "The Hissing Cha Cha", "Clap Hands and Cha Cha", and the spooky "The Web". Also with "Rey Negro" and "Zzoita". LP, Vinyl record album
(In great shape – save for a small bit of tape in one corner.)

✨✧ Ralph RoblesRalph Robles ... CD
Alma, Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sock boogaloo! Although Ralphie Robles never cut that many records after the Latin Soul era, his late 60s sides for Fania are among some of our favorite, and they groove with a non-stop hard-edged vibe! This album's a winner all the way through – filled with tight short tracks, smoking instrumentation on sax and trumpet, and lots of great English lyrics handled with a very soulful approach! The band here features Ralphie on trumpet, Hector Rivera on piano, Jose "Piliche" Elisier on vocals, and some great sax work by Raymond Crevates. Groovers include "Mi Negro", "Banana Juana", "Val's Candy", "Jezebel", and "Come & Get It". CD includes material from the album Ralph Robles Was Here – plus bonus tracks "Mi Borinquen", "Los Habaneros", "El Rey", "Montuniando", and "Perro Tramposo". CD

✨✧ Dom Um RomaoDom Um Romao/Spirit Of The Times ... CD
Muse/Soul Brother (UK), 1972/1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pair of amazing records from percussionist Dom Um Romao – back to back in a single set! The self-titled Dom Um Romao is an unbelievably fantastic album, and perhaps the greatest one that Dom Um Romao ever cut! Dom recorded this set in America with a blend of Brazilian and New York musicians – creating an incredible sound that's unlike anything else we can think of – a rich harmony of Brazilian roots and more creative 70s electric instrumentation – filled with complicated shades, tones, and colors! We'd place this record next to the best electric work by David Axelrod, the dopest funk on CTI, and a rare few other jazz funk albums from the 70s – and the whole thing's completely sublime all the way through! Players include Joao Donato on piano, Dom Salvador on Fender Rhodes, Lloyd McNeil on flute, Mauricio Smith on tenor and soprano sax, Sivuca on organ and guitar, and Joe Beck on electric guitar – and titles include the spare spacey groover "Dom's Tune", the lively dancer "Cinnamon Flower", the jazzy "Family Talk", a great version of "Ponteio", and a take on Sivuca's "Adeus Maria Fulo". Spirit Of The Times is an incredible set of Brazilian jazz – one of the few albums that percussionist Dom Um Romao recorded as a leader, and sublime all the way through! The record's got a wonderful blend of funky fusion and Brazilian percussion – and features a group from two continents that includes Sivuca on organ, Dom Salvador on electric piano, Joe Beck on guitar, Jerry Dodgion on alto sax, Lloyd McNeill on flute, and Mauricio Smith on tenor, soprano, and flute. Includes the percussion jammer "Shake (Ginga Gingou)", the modal groover "Wait on the Corner", and the lively scatting tune "The Angels" – but the whole album's great, and other tracks include "The Salvation Army", "Kitchen", and "Lamento Negro".

JoyceSlow Music (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2009. Used ... $11.99
Spare jazzy work from Joyce – every bit as slow as the title promises, but never in a way that's boring or sleepy! Any new album from Joyce is always a treat, but this one seems to stand out even more from other recent efforts – as it marks a new style in her music, one that almost has the vocalist reaching for more sensitive, personal territory – recalling some of our favorite jazz singers in the process, yet still keeping enough of the acoustic charm we've always loved in her music. Joyce plays guitar along with her vocals, which undercuts any familiar torch/standard cliches – and gets support from piano, bass, and drums – the last of which are played by Tutty Moreno. Titles include "Convince Me", "Slow Music", "Medo De Amor", "Amor Amor", "Samba Do Grande Amor", "But Beautiful", "Olhos Negros", "Sobras Da Partilha", and "Valsa Do Pequeno Amor". CD
