Nitty Gritty Sextet
Rocafort (Spain), 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A long lost late 60s Latin Soul record by Nitty Gritty Sextet – featuring legendary New York Latin players, and a hip, soulful boogaloo sound that should have made major waves on the scene – but somehow never saw release back in the day! The personnel reads like a who's who of the ... CD

Bravo Celia Cruz
Orfeon/Tico, 1967. Sealed
A late 60s album from Celia Cruz – but one with a sound that's very similar to her classic early recordings of the 50s! The feel here is quite similar to those – recorded in Mexico, with backings from the orchestras of Memo Salamanca and Juan Bruno Tarraza – both of whom support ... LP, Vinyl record album

En Medio
Impulse, 1973. Very Good- Gatefold
A nice little album, and one with a very messed up Latin groove – one that's partly funky Impulse, partly Chicano soul. Gary Saracho leads the group on acoustic and electric piano – and the rest of the ensemble includes soprano sax, electric guitar, timbales, bass, and an assortment of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Irakere
Columbia, 1979. Very Good Gatefold
A landmark album from this powerhouse Cuban group of the 70s – their first record issued formally to an American market, and quite possibly their greatest effort of the decade! The sound here is a lot more focused than on the group's Cuban sessions from previous years – not commercial ... LP, Vinyl record album

ABC, Late 50s. Very Good
Like many albums made by Latin players during the 50s, this is kind of a straight Latin effort in parts, dressed up in Calypso guise to try to get higher sales. Johnny Carisi directed the whole project – and it would have a nice Latin jazz sound, were it not for the occasional intrustion of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Azteca
Columbia, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
A crowning moment for the west coast Latin scene in the 70s – a wonderful Bay Area set that brings together some of the best talents working on that scene at the time! The set's got a great blend of modes – Latin soul, touches of funk, and plenty of the jazzy inflections you'd expect ... LP, Vinyl record album

Happy Together
Fantasy, 1978. Near Mint-
Tight and soulful grooves from the team of Pete and Sheila Escovedo – a set that still has elements of the pair's Latin roots, but which also explodes in a flurry of funk, soul, and fusion moments too! As with their first Fantasy album, the duo have Billy Cobham on deck to produce – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie's Concerto
Tico, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the great recordings from Eddie's classic 70's period. Vocals are by Ismael Quintana, and the LP includes an excellent 10 minute track called "Pa La Ocha Tambo", of the long jamming type that Eddie was so good at during this time. Other cuts include "El Molesto", "M ... LP, Vinyl record album
