World's Greatest Latin Band

LP (Item 33287) GNP, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+
Fairly standard work from Machito, with a number of vocal cuts that feature either Machito or Graciela – but a record that really shines in the jazzy moments! These cuts include a version of "Pent-Up House", with a sax solo by Aaron Sachs, a reading of "Tenderly" with a trumpet solo by Jimmy Zito, and "Bernie's Tune", a nice ensemble groover.  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(80s Spanish pressing on Palladium.)

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.

Roulette, Late 50s. Near Mint-
A real corker from Machito – a set that's got a lot more bite and earthy fire than some of his other albums of the 50s – as you might be able to guess from the cover and the title! The record definitely lives up to the Afro-Cuban promise on the front – thanks to very hip ... LP, Vinyl record album
Roulette, 1958. Very Good
Not just flute to boot – but a heck of a lot more jazz, too – thanks to a lineup that features Johnny Griffin on tenor, Curtis Fuller on trombone, and Herbie Mann on flute! The presence of the three players really make this set a cooker – quite possibly Machito's best Latin jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hector Lavoe

Comedia
Fania, 1978. Very Good
A hokey cover but a really classic album from Hector Lavoe – one of his biggest records of the 70s, and a great mix of modes that showcases the full range of his talents! The standout number here is the 10 minute groover "El Cantate" – a driving salsa tune penned by Ruben ... LP, Vinyl record album

There's A Riot Goin' On
Epic, 1971. Very Good Gatefold
A wonderful album from Sly and crew – moving way past the straight funk approach of earlier records, into a complicated crossover soul style that's filled with warmth and righteousness. Despite the political tone implied by the "riot" in the title and the co-option of the American ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1976. Very Good
One of the most creative club acts of the 70s – the mighty Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band! Before starting his Kid Creole & the Coconuts combo, August Darnell worked to great fame with Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band – kind of a campy, jazzy ensemble – one that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1965. Good
Brother Jack's organ is set amidst an amazing batch of orchestrations by Benny Golson, and the core of the group is Jack's combo with Red Hollway, George Benson, and Joe Dukes. Golson's arrangements are fantastic, and far from surpressing or overpowering the combo's funky jazz sound, they actually ... LP, Vinyl record album
