LP (Item 2151) Columbia, 1978 — Condition: Very Good+

LP, Vinyl record album

(€9.42 || £7.99 || ¥1116) (approx.)

Nice stuff from Willie – maybe not as hard and funky as his early 70s work, but very nice in kind of a Latin Club mode, thanks to some great production by Wayne Henderson! Includes his classic take on "Always There" – which is a great dancefloor jazz jammer – plus Henderson's groovy stepper "Keep that Same Old Feeling", and the tracks "Together", "Dindi", and "Pisces". (Cover has light wear.)  © 1996-2017, 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.

Bobo Motion
Verve, 1967. Sealed
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
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
El Pussy Cat
Columbia, 1965. Very Good
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tribute To Chano Pozo
True Ventures, 1977. Very Good-
Way more than just a tribute to the legendary percussionist Chano Pozo – as the set's got a sophisticated 70s Latin jazz approach – and a style that goes way further than Pozo would have imagined during his early cubop experiments of the postwar years! Percussionist Jose Mangual Jr is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mongo At The Village Gate
Battle/Riverside, 1963. Very Good-
A raw early cooker from Mongo Santamaria – a real standout album from the Riverside years, thanks to a live performance that goes far beyond his studio work of the time! The set was caught live at the Village Gate – in a way that lets the band open up and really jam on the tunes – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Salsoul, 1979. Very Good-
A key chapter in the rich long legacy of Candido on record – a set that pushes the percussion maestro strongly into the disco generation – with wonderful results that are still massively strong all these many years later! Candido had always been one of the funkiest conga players around ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ascencion
Warner, 1974. Very Good
This one's a bit tighter than some of the group's earlier albums – but still equally funky, and still very nice! Malo are at the top of their form here – grooving hard with great guitar from Jorge Santana, tight congas from Francisco Aquabella, sweet organ from Ron De Masi, and great ... LP, Vinyl record album
Evolution
Warner, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Malo may be evolving a bit, but they're still right in the pocket as far as we're concerned! This excellent west coast Latin ensemble mixes together jazz, funk, soul, and slight touches of Chicano rock – into a heavy groove that was one of the best-conceived at the time. Jorge Santana lays ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cook, Early 50s. Very Good-
A nice little session of Latin jazz – percussive at the bottom, but with an overall jazz mambo feel that's similar to early 50s work by Chico O'Farrill. Tracks are shortish, but have some nice solos by unnamed players – and titles include "Hi Fi Mambo", "Mambo A La ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rough Guide, Late 60s/Early 70s/2015. Sealed
Heavy Latin grooves – served up with plenty of funk, jazz, and soul in the mix – and put together as a collection that's even better than the first volume in this series!
