Deep In A Drum

LP (Item 51576) RCA, 1958 — Condition: Near Mint-

One of Eddie's best early albums – a highly percussive session cut with a small group that includes guitar by Tommy Tedesco, vibes by Larry Bunker, conga by Carlos Vidal, and timbales by Eddie Aparicio. The tracks are harder and heavier than most of Cano's pop-Latin grooves that always show up more in the record racks – and the record's got some strong numbers that break out the drums a lot more than most of the other RCA sides from the time. Titles include "The Man I Love", "Deep In A Drum", "Short Run", "Night In Tunisia", "Luz De La Luna", and "Yesterdays".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has some aging and a very small split in the bottom seam.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Eddie Cano At PJs
Reprise, Early 60s. Very Good+
A stone classic from pianist Eddie Cano – recorded at the time he was heading the house combo at PJs, one of LA's hippest clubs of the 60s! The album's got Eddie grooving in a looser, freer, and more stripped-down style than on his 50s sessions – hitting a nice mix of Latin, jazz, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Ellington & Me
RCA, 1957. Very Good+
An incredible early album from Eddie Cano – one that features his Latin tinged piano amidst some incredibly sharp orchestrations, all cooking up a set of tight and rhythmic readings of Ellington standards! The feel isn't as Latin as some of Eddie's other albums, but there's still some Latin ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cano Plays Mancini
Reprise, Early 60s. Very Good-
What a great combination – the Latin piano of Eddie Cano and the magical compositions of Henry Mancini! Eddie's working here with a small combo that includes bass, drums, and conga – and he starts out slow and moody with Mancini's music, then starts kicking it up with that heavy-groovin ...

Reprise, Early 60s. Very Good+
A pretty darn nice record – despite what you might think! Sure, the tunes are all pulled from the soundtrack to Sound Of Music – but Eddie Cano Latinizes each and every one of them, using his hard piano style and light percussion to turn them into jaunty groovers with a jazzy finish ...

Taste Of Cano
GNP/Crescendo, Late 50s. Very Good
Excellent stuff! Although Eddie Cano cut a lot of pop-Latin piano records, this hard jazzy groover is a firey bunch of instrumentals that stands as one of his best records ever! The set's got a tight west coast group that includes a tight trumpet frontline, plus timbales, bass, and congas – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tito Puente

Mucho Cha Cha
RCA, 1959. Very Good
Mucho cha cha here – the reigning rhythm on the New York Latin scene at the end of the 50s – played by Tito Puente and group with some nicely jazzy styles! The combo features some excellent horn work alongside the percussion – both sax and trumpet sections, plus some leaner flute ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vik/RCA, 1957. Near Mint-
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 ...

Cuban Carnival
RCA, 1956. Very Good+
One of Tito Puente's finest albums for RCA, with a tight hard bunch of cuts that have a Cuban big band sound, and a lot more drive to them than some of Tito's other work for the label. Ray Bryant wrote the great track "Cuban Fantasy", and Tito contributed most of the other tunes on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
