El Mejor

CD (Item 502774) Concord, 1992 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


Major grooves from Poncho Sanchez – just the kind of cooking set that makes just about every one of his dates for Concord well worth searching out! The sound here is nice and traditional – at least in the Latin jazz mode – heavy percussion from Poncho, topped by an array of great horns from players who include Andy Martin on trombone, Sal Cracchiolo on trumpet, and both Tom Casey and Justo Almario on alto, tenor, and flute! David Torres plays piano and directs the group,a nd titles include "Suenos", "Lip Smacker", "Monk", "Angel", "Suave Cha", "Dichoso", "Typhoon", and "Just A Few".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Out of print.)

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.

Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Psychedelic Blues
Concord, 2009. Used
Latin jazz from Poncho Sanchez – not only Latin percussion flavored Psychedelic Blues – but vibrant bits of salsa, both lean and heated Latin jazz, and swirling percussive grooves galore! As always, Pancho's percussion is fantastic, and there's a jazziness on this set that wasn't in ... CD

Latin Soul
Concord, 1999. Used
Poncho's still cooking nice and hard on congas – and he's got a tight band backing him up on this feisty session of heavy Latin grooves. The album's a nice throwback to the glory days of Latin soul, and it features an Eddie Harris medley of "Cold Duck" and "Listen Here", ... CD
