Mambo With Morales

LP (Item 16756) Harmony, Mid 50s — Condition: Very Good+

Nice 50's mambo material from one of the giants of the genre – and a good batch of tracks by Noro that you might not track down elsewhere. Tracks include "Mambo Away", "Humberto's Jump", "The Up & Down Mambo", "Mambo Jive", and "Ku-Kue".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Vik/RCA, 1957. Very Good-
Noro Morales' most ambitious recording, and a beautiful reading of Ernesto Lecuona's extended Afro Cuban Suite! The suite spans both sides of the album, and is done here in a beautiful orchestral intervweaving of Latin themes, with arrangements by George Siravo, and piano by Noro, who also leads ... LP, Vinyl record album

Noro Morales

Merengue A La Noro
RCA, Mid 50s. Near Mint-
Noro Morales turns his rich talents to a set of merengue tracks – but the style's a lot different than you'd expect from the later sound of the genre! Instead, these cuts have a sly sinister sound, with kind of a snakey approach that adds a nice element to the music, and which keeps things ... LP, Vinyl record album

Machito

Mambo Holiday
Harmony, Mid 50s. Near Mint-
An excellent Machito album – with a hard straight ahead sound that's way better than a lot of his other albums from the time! There's loads of great percussion on the record, and plenty of strong Afro-Cuban grooves, recorded in spare arrangements with a bit of echo on the mix to give the set ... LP, Vinyl record album

Afro Latin Soultet

Wild!
Tower, Late 60s. Good+
Madly romping Latin from this obscure group led by pianist Phil Moore III – a combo who effortlessly groove through a blend of boogaloo, Latin jazz, and plenty of percussion-heavy exotica – all in a style that's very much their own! There's a loose and free feel here that's far ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willie Bobo

Bobo Motion
Verve, 1967. Good+
Bobo Motion is groovy motion – heard here on one of Willie's best albums for Verve from the late 60s – a really unique blend of jazz, Latin, and soul-based rhythms! The set's even tighter than some of Willie's other Verve records – and like the classic Uno Dos Tres, it's got some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willie Rosario

Boogaloo & Guaguanco
Atco, 1968. Very Good+
A wicked batch of Latin groovers from Willie Rosario – one that takes all the energy of his rare indie sides from the 60s, and fuses it with the tight approach to Latin Soul being hipped up by Atlantic at the time! The whole thing's great, and has a vibe that's very lively overall – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cotique, 1968. Near Mint-
Good people, these Latin Teens – a very cool group that was young enough to not worry about names or labels, and who jammed in the best open-ended style of the time! As their name might imply, the group was mostly made up of kids – and as such, they had kind of a freewheeling approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Barretto

Energy To Burn
Fania, 1977. Very Good+
A really smoking set from Ray Barretto – recorded at a later date than his Latin Soul classics, but a beautifully imaginative batch of tracks that shows that Ray never stopped perfecting his art! The centerpiece of the album is the long track "Canto Abacuba", which has an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pete Rodriguez & His Orchestra

Hot & Wild/Yo Vengo Soltando Chispas
Alegre, 1968. Near Mint-
Hot and wild – two of the best words you could use to describe the late 60s Latin Soul material of Pete Rodriguez – especially on an album like this! This album has Pete and his combo at their best – stepping effortlessly between English-language, soul-based tracks – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
