Jala Jala Y Boogaloo Vol 2

LP (Item 80475) Alegre, 1968 — Condition: Very Good-

An amazing follow up to Ricardo Ray's first album of Jala Jala and Boogaloo tracks – a real killer Latin soul set that's even better than the first! The record's got a full-on style that kicks in from the very first note – a blend of uptight Latin tracks and some very groovy 60s-styled numbers with plenty of sock-soul touches – a definite boogaloo influence, but still some strong Puerto Rican modes too. Lyrics are mostly in Spanish, but the grooves have a universal appeal that kicks in no matter what the language! Stormin and groovy all the way through – with tracks that include "Tin Marin", "Mr. Trumpet Man", "More Richie", and "Musica Ye Ye".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing. Cover has a half split top seam with some flaking at the corner.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Alegre, 1966. Very Good-
One of the first albums ever from Ricardo Ray – a really sharp-edged set that's quite different than any of his later work with Bobby Cruz! The groove here is a mix of Latin jazz and boogaloo modes – a really strong sound that draws heavily on Ray's bold piano lines, and which also ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sabu Martinez

Jazz Espagnole
Alegre, 1960. Near Mint-
A masterpiece of Latin jazz – and one of the truest expressions of the genre we can think of! The album's quite unique, especially for the time – a spare, stripped-down presentation of Latin-influenced jazz – a sound that has its roots in the cubop experiments of a decade before, ...

Eddie Palmieri y Su Conjunto La Perfecta

El Molestoso (aka La Perfecta Vol 2)
Alegre (Venezuela), Early 60s. Near Mint-
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie Palmieri Y Su Orquesta

Vuelve El Gigante
Alegre, 1973. Very Good
A hard to find Charlie Palmieri album from the early 70's – released on Alegre, and with a crack set of arrangements by Charlie, Sonny Bravo, and Tito Puente. The tracks are all fairly short – except for the long take on Arsenio Rodriguez' "El Guaya Catalina" – but as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tito Allen

Beyond
Alegre, 1979. Very Good+
A very tasty batch of salsa tracks from Tito Allen, featuring a great group of jazz players in the band – including Bobby Porcelli and Rene McLean on saxes! Louie Ramirez produced, and the sound has that nice rich quality he was getting on late 70s sessions. Titles include "Estoy Como ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Palmieri

Molasses
Tico, 1967. Very Good
Nothing slow and sticky here – because Eddie Palmieri is really hitting his groove by this point in his career – soaring along in a dark blend of jazz and Latin elements, with a fair bit more complicated modes than most of his contemporaries! There's a sophistication here that's really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, Mid 60s. Very Good
The group were certainly doing something right – as this album has Joe Cuba's sextet at the top of their game, easily showing why they were one of the best groups on the New York scene of the 60s! The album's a pivotal one in the development of Latin Soul – as it sports the incredible ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tito Puente

Tambo
RCA, 1960. Very Good
A wonderful bit of exotica from Tito Puente – an album done in collaboration with producer Marty Gold, and featuring a highly percussive sound that Gold himself was exploring on his own albums of the period! There's a heck of a lot of percussion on the set – in styles that mix both ... LP, Vinyl record album
