New Sound In Latin Jazz

CD (Item 657019) Alegre, Late 60s — Condition: Used
$18.99 ...

CD

One of the few albums ever recorded by Vladimir Vassilieff – an obscure late 60s piano player who's best known for his groovy album The Aquarians! The record's a really wonderful set that really lives up to its title – a haunting set of Latin jazz numbers played with a hip group that includes Many Duran, Bobby Rodriguez, and the great Bobby Porcelli on alto. The groove is light and free – a blend of 60s Latin, hardbop, bossa, and more – handled with the kind of modern touches that few other Latin leaders were using at the time, save for the great Bobby Vince Paunetto. Leo Morris makes a surprising guest appearance on the groover "Baby Boo Boogaloo", and other cuts include "Suzy's Bossa Nova", "Mambito", "Camelot Cha Cha", "Mambo at the Cave", and "Mombo Moderno".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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 have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Lo Que Traigo Es Sabroso
Alegre, Early 60s. Used
Great early material from Eddie Palmieri – one of his classic records done with Conjunto La Perfecta – a group that's poised on contrapuntal trombone lines, and which had a very important influence on Latin jazz styles in the 60s! The use of trombone makes for lots of dark edges – ... CD

La Perfecta Vol 2 – El Molestoso
Alegre, Early 60s. Used
One of Eddie's early gems with his La Perfecta group – a hard-hitting ensemble with a sound that encompassed the charanga era, yet which also pointed the way towards many styles past it. Eddie's strong piano is a very big part of the group's success – jazzing things up at the right ... CD

Angel Canales

Sabor
Alegre, 1975. Used
Possibly the greatest album ever from Angel Canales – a 70s salsa classic through and through, and one with great links between the New York scene and Canales' Puerto Rican roots! The tunes are wonderfully heartfelt throughout – sung with a youthful sense of soul that's far different ... CD

Charlie Palmieri Y Su Charanga La Duboney

Pachanga At The Caravana Club
Alegre, 1962. Used
Killer early 60s work by Charlie Palmieri and his La Duboney group – a combo who were Charlie's equivalent to the La Perfecta lineup headed by Eddie Palmieri! Like that group, this one has a very sharp, modern approach to the Cuban style – one that's inflected by a deep knowledge of ... CD

Ray Olan Y Su Sason

Sugar On Sunday
Alegre, 1969. Used
A lost bit of late 60s Latin – with a really soulful feel! The band has an extremely strong instrumental sound, with a twin trombone lineup that's nice and tight – and they work with lots of dark descending chord progressions, spinning out tunes that bubble in blue notes, and nicely ... CD

Celia Cruz & Johnny Pacheco

Tremendo Cache (remastered edition)
Vaya/Fania, 1975. Used
A classic collaboration between Celia Cruz and Johnny Pacheco – one that uses the rootsier sounds of Pacheco's tumbao group to further focus the energy of Celia's vocals! The record's got a solid, cohesive feel that makes it easily one of the best Celia Cruz sessions of the 70s – a ... CD

Conjunto Candela

Conjunto Candela Vol 2
Combo, 1977. Used
There's a slightly rootsy groove to this 70s set from Conjunto Candela – a cool mix of salsa-styled trumpet lines with tres from Tony Velez – a mode that's similar to some of the groups working on the Vaya and International labels at the time! Vocals are by Louie Rodriguez and Charlie ... CD

Johnny Ray & Salsa Con Clase

Encendido
JZ Productions, 2006. Used
Salsa with class from congolero Johnny Ray – a set that's got many of the same tight edges used in his 70s work as Johnny Zamot, but which comes across with a sound that's slightly more contemporary overall! The group here features Johnny on congas, plus horns, piano, percussion, and a bit ... CD
