✨✧ Alegre All StarsAlegre All Stars Vol 1 ... LP
Alegre, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album that shaped Latin jazz for years to come! The format of the set borrows heavily from the previous Cuban Jam Session LPs, but gives it a real New York twist that made the Alegre albums much stronger overall – and much more influential in a wider spectrum. A core group fo ... (Latin) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ruben BladesFrom Panama To New York ... LP
Alegre, 1970. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Ruben Blades's first album – recorded shortly after his arrival in New York from Panama, with top-notch backing by the band of Pete Rodriguez! The album's an interesting one, in that it catches Ruben shortly before the salsa era, singing in a mix of styles that reminds us of some of Jimmy ... (Latin) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing! Back cover has a small amount of pen – but this is a great copy.)

✨✧ Cabrerita Y Sus IdeasSobre Salsa ... LP
Alegre, 1972. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A mad little album put together by producer Joe Cain – and featuring the Ideas group of trumpeter Cabrerita! Cabby's got a sound that's pretty full-on – often blowing for all he's worth, and really taking things over the top of the tunes. The album's got one 6 minute descarga number ...

Angel CanalesSabor (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Alegre/Craft, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 28.99
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 ... (Latin) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gene Hernandez Y NovedadesInspiraciones ... LP
Alegre, 1979. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Charlie PalmieriAdelante, Gigante ... LP
Alegre, 1975. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A 70s corker from Charlie Palmieri – and a record that has him stretching out from piano, playing a bit of organ, and a bit of Fender Rhodes! The tracks are relatively straight salsa, but the use of these different keys really gives them an edge – one that's honed even further by Bobby ... (Latin) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original US Pressing!)

✨✧ Ricardo RayJala Jala Y Boogaloo Vol 2 ... LP
Alegre, 1968. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
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 ... (Latin) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ricardo RayLet's Get Down To The Real Nitty Gritty ... LP
Alegre, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $44.99
A very wild album from Ricardo Ray – sort of a mix of Latin soul styles in the mode of work by Mongo Santamaria, but a lot more messed up! The album's got a number of 60s soul covers – but they're done here by Ricardo in kind of a party Latin mode, touched with a bit of garage soul ... (Latin) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – a great copy! Label has a small bit of pen, and cover has a small cutout hole – but this is a great copy overall.)

✨✧ Ricardo RayOn The Loose – Se Solto ... LP
Alegre, 1966. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
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 ... (Latin) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original stereo pressing! Cover has some light wear and a cutout hole – vinyl is great.)

✨✧ Ricardo Ray & Bobby CruzAguzate ... LP
Alegre, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Smoking salsa from one of its greatest proponents in the 70s – the crowd-pleasing Ricardo Ray & Bobby Cruz ensemble, heard here at the height of their powers! Tracks here are mostly tight and lively – arranged by Ray and Cruz with help from Russel Farnsworth – but a few ... (Latin) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ricardo Ray/Bobby CruzIn Orbit ... LP
Alegre, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the hardest-hitting records from Ricardo Ray and Bobby Cruz – a key link between Ricardo Ray's late 60s boogaloo, and his later salsa classics with Bobby! The album grabs us right away – with a stunning descarga track called "Ricard Ray In Orbit" – bubbling over ... (Latin) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original stereo pressing with Bell Sound stamp. Cover has a small cutout hole, and some tape on the bottom seam – but looks nice overall.)

Alegre/Vaya, 1976. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
70s issue of this classic – a great blend of Puerto Rican roots and some of the more sophisticated modes going down in the New York scene of the 60s – and a classic pre-salsa album from Mon Rivera! Rivera's got a small combo here who represent the hippest Alegre players of the time ... (Latin) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Alegre/Craft, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fantastic little album of Latin Soul – a perfect example of why Pete was known as the "King Of The Boogaloo" during the 60s! The group's having a non-stop party on the album – breaking it hard with heavy piano lines, rumbling bass underneath the grooves, tight timbales, and ... (Latin) read more LP, Vinyl record album
