Singing Cha Cha Cha

LP (Item 734119) Kapp, 1961 — Condition: Very Good

An obscure Latin set on Kapp – with Horace Diaz and Los Amigos – a group with a nice touch of jaz! Titles include "Kissproof Lips", "Oh Johnny Oh Johnny Oh", "Take It Easy", "Charley My Boy", "Watermelon Heart", and "I Want A Guy Who Can Dance Me The Cha Cha Cha".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Joe Cuba Sextet

Bustin' Out
Tico, 1972. Very Good+
More than Bustin Out, Joe's really tripping out here – taking his 60s Latin soul groove, and raunching it up a bit with some very nice 70s touches! One of these includes the use of what Joe calls "x-rated" elements – as you'd hear on the album's great track "Pud-da-din&qu ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack Costanzo

Mr Bongo
Clarion, Early 60s. Very Good+
A rare bit of Latin jazz from this mighty percussionist – the man also known to the world as Mr Bongo! The date's Jack's only one for Atlantic Records – and the cuts are short, hard, and fast, with Jack's nimble hands on the bongo highlighted on most cuts, with tight backing behind, ...

Benitez

Essence Of Life
Vaya, 1977. Very Good+
Excellent stuff from Eddie Benitez and his jazzy Latin soul combo of the 70s! The band had a very unique blend of Latin fusion, jazzy musicianship, and soulful vocals – and in a way, they were continuing experiments begun in the early days of the Nu Yorica era, but which had been cast aside ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, Late 50s. Very Good+
There's been more than a few excellent Latin sets based upon the work of Irving Berlin – but this album may well be the finest! Machito's in top top form here, working in that late 50s heavy-jazz mode that we treasure from some of his best Tico/Roulette albums – and the all-instrumental ... LP, Vinyl record album

Manny Lopez

Why Not Cha Cha Cha?
Imperial, Late 50s. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, 1958. Very Good
By the end of the 50s, Machito was a king of the Latin scene – and had an ability to both groove hard, and lay down sophisticated arrangements that were a lot stronger than those of other throwaway cha cha cha groups. This album's one of his best from the era – and it includes lots of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willie Bobo

Feelin' So Good
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good
One of the Verve albums that focuses on Willie Bobo's talents as a singer – still very much in the tight Latin Soul style of Willie's other work from the time, but with more vocals on the tracks – done in Willie's rough-styled soulful mode! Includes the groovers "Feelin' So ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brian Auger

Straight Ahead
RCA, 1974. Very Good+
Long lean groovers from Brian Auger and the Oblivion Express group – recorded with a slightly freer feel than some of the group's earlier albums, and an approach that has them stretching out nicely! Brian still sings a bit on some tracks, but there seems to be more of a focus than before on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons

Boss Is Back!
Prestige, 1969. Near Mint-
In "back", the title is pointing to the fact that Gene Ammons is back on the scene, after being released from 7 years of a tragic 15 year narcotics sentence in prison. The album marks a proud return for Jug – who'd not recorded since a very successful flurry of sides recorded in ... LP, Vinyl record album
