✨✧ Charlie Palmieri Y Su Charanga La DuboneyPachanga At The Caravana Club ... LP
Alegre, 1962. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
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 jazz, even though the overall execution is straight Latin – served up with these really complex tones and color that really illuminate the rhythms! Flute dances along wonderfully with the percussion and piano – and titles include "El Brinco Loco", "La Pachanga Se Baila", "El Baile Nuevo", "Ritmo Charanga", and "Bronx Pachanga". LP, Vinyl record album
(60s blue label pressing – a nice copy! Back cover has a small distribution sticker.)

✨✧ Charlie PalmieriLet's Dance The Charanga! ... LP
United Artists, 1960. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare early Charlie Palmieri record, and one of the great Latin records to come out on United Artists in the early 60's. Charlie leads a tight little orchestra that includes a lot of the top players that he was playing with at the time, with vocals by Victor Aviles and Leonel Bravet, percussion by John Palomo, Juliun Cabrera and Joseph Rodriguez, and Johnny Pacheco on flute. Pacheco's contributions really make the album, with his stand out contributions to the record's tight pachanga sound. The set focuses on the sort of material that Pacheco and Palmieri were cutting for labels like Alegre during the early 60s – with 12 numbers in all, including the tracks "Domino", "Discarga", "Tema De La Duboney", "Moonlight Cocktail", "Ay Que Mate", "Comme Ci Comme Ca", "Bruca Manigua", "The Gaucho Serenade" and "Chun Ko (Cha Ca Cha)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono rainbow label pressing with deep groove. Vinyl is nice and clean, but has a short click on the last track. Cover has a small bit of tape, but looks nice too.)

Alegre, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hard to find Charlie Palmieri classic. One of his tight early albums with his Duboney Orchestra, and vocals by Victor Velazquez. Tracks include the mambos "Tengo Maquina Y Voy A Sesenta" and "La Timba Es Mia", plus a few guaguancos and "Son Sasonao", a son montuno. Groovy cover, with a photo of Charlie in a paper car!

✨✧ Charlie PalmieriEither You Have It Or You Don't/Hay Que Estar En Algo ... LP
Alegre, 1967. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
One of Charlie's best albums of the 60s – a hard-wailing session that's one of his few straight Latin Soul efforts! Charlie really lets loose with a bouncy groove on the whole set – bringing in lots of English language lyrics, and giving the whole thing a nice party feel that pushes past the more staid sound of some of his earlier records. The album's got some great boogaloo numbers – like "Boogaloo Mania", and "Fat Papa" – a great answer song to Tito Puete's "Fat Mama". There's also some nice other cuts that have a straighter Latin jazz feel, like "Sandstorm", "El Yo Yo", and "Fat Papa's Descarga"! LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice 60s pressing, with Sterling stamp – vinyl and cover are nice.)

✨✧ Charlie PalmieriEl Gigante Del Teclado ... LP
Alegre, 1972. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
An excellent – and hard-to-find – album by Charlie from the early 70s! The album features Charlie's focus opening up a bit more, with longer tracks, more complicated arrangements, and some very nice unusual touches – like organ, melodica, and electric bass. Charlie's work on organ is really smoking – especially on the track "Que Sa Vaya", a smoking Latin groover that shows that the Hammond is right at home in the Latin vein. Elsewhere, Charlie's work on piano is wonderfully complicated, with lots of strange twists and turns on the solos – in a manner that was similar to the direction that Eddie Palmieri's work was taking at the time. Titles include "Coco", "El Pan Sobao", and "El Mundo Esta Bien". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original 70s pressing – a nice copy!)

✨✧ Charlie PalmieriGiant Step ... LP
Tropical Buddah, 1984. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Instrumental Latin from Charlie Palmieri – an indie set from the 80s, but one that almost has the classic feel of some of his first few albums at the end of the 50s! The approach here is similar to those – especially Charlie's work for United Artists – a jazz-inflected approach that has plenty of piano in the lead, supported by bass, timbales, bongos, and congas! Larry's groove is traditional, but also shows some of the freedoms that crept into Latin piano work during the 60s and 70s – and as an added plus, most of these tracks are much longer than in the old days – offering plenty of space for improvisation on the solos! Titles include "Rhumba Rhapsody", "Start The World I Want To Get On", "Mis Amigos EGC", "Adios", "Bajo Los Sombras De Un Pino", and "Muneca". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice original pressing! Cover has a cut corner.)

✨✧ Charlie Palmieri y Su Charanga La DuboneySalsa Na Ma ... LP
Alegre, 1963. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
An early stormer from Charlie! The album's one of his first, recorded by his famous La Duboney group – and it's got the hard burning energy of the best small combos of the time, like the groups led by brother Eddie or Johnny Pacheco. Tracks are nicely hard grooving charanga numbers – lots of tight percussion, fluttering flute, and jazzy piano from Charlie himself – and the conception of the record is head and shoulders above most other sets of this type for the time. Includes a dreamy bossa nova track "Amor For Two", plus the titles "Salsa Na Ma", "El Yerbero", "Tiene Sabor", "Loco Por Ti", "Vamanos Guajira", and "Doctor De Fama". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original black label pressing. Cover's in great shape – vinyl is nice and clean.)

✨✧ Charlie Palmieri/Emilio Reyes/La Playa SextetLo Ultimo ... LP
Embajador, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Nice album of classic Latin tracks, and one that offers a mix of material from Charlie Palmieri, Emilio Reyes, and La Playa Sextet. Despite the obvious thrown together nature of the release, the material's all quite strong, and lots of hit has a very hard, very percussive sound. Charlie and his Duboney group contribute "Hermanos En Mambo" and "Charlie's Cha Cha"; Emilio Reyes performs "Alegra Cha Cha" and "Cafe Mambo"; and La Play Sextet play "San Luisera" and "Guaguanco En Tropicana". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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 Nelson, who plays both flute and tenor sax in Charlie's band. The percussion is also quite tight on the set – making for a jumpy groove that hangs on even in the mellower cuts! Titles include "Tema De Maria Cervantes", "Cuando Vuelva A Tu Lado", "Cachita", "La Fuente", "El Susto", and "Que te Vas - Pues Vete". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Charlie PalmieriElectro Duro ... LP
Coco, 1974. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A great little record from Charlie Palmieri – and one of his oddest! The "electro" in the title refers to a strange tinny organ that Charlie plays on many cuts on the record, a cool little instrument that gives the songs a nice twist. The backing's pretty great in the classic Coco Records mode – with strong salsa grooving, and a list of players that includes Tito Puente, Manny Oquendo, Roberto Roena, Cortijo, Cachao, and Andy Gonzalez. The record features a groovy little funk number called "The Taxi Driver" – plus Latin numbers like "Para Caracas Me Voy", "Maracaibo Oriental", "Salazon", and "Las Negritas De Carnaval".

✨✧ Charlie PalmieriLatin Bugalu ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
One of Charlie Palmieri's best records from the 60s! The session is an obscure one-off done for Atlantic in 1968 – and for some reason, the record was never issued as widely as some of Charlie's other sides for smaller labels during the time, making it one of the most hard-to-find chapters of his career. The tracks are played by a tight little Latin jazz combo – with Charlie on piano, Julian Priester on trombone, and Louis Ramirez on timbales – and the set is filled with some great original tunes that mix together boogaloo rhythms and straight ahead Latin jazz. Tracks include "Bugalu", "Mambo Show", "Panama's Boogaloo", and "Bitter Sweet" – plus a Latin soul instrumental reading of "Up Tight". LP, Vinyl record album

First-ever issue of this great session of unreleased Latin material from the mid-80s, in which Charlie Palmieri leads a host of great Latin players – like Henry Fiol and Jimmy Sabater – through a bunch of hard jazzy material. The recording quality is excellent, and the production keeps the sound hard and driving – a great album of no-nonsense Latin jazz, and essential for any fan of the music. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Charlie PalmieriImpulsos (Impulses) ... LP
Coco, 1975. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic 70s session from Charlie Palmieri – featuring some of his best keyboard solos of the decade, and some very cool work on organ that almost makes us think Sun Ra is in the group! The style is quite unusual, even for Charlie – with a weird sound from his organ that really gives the record an edge – played alongside straighter piano lines, heavy percussion, and lots of warm horn work overall. Charlie's organ really stands out best on the descarga cut "No Esta En Na" and the groovy midtempo "Estoy Friza'o" – but the whole thing's great, and other cuts include "Comelon Hustle", "King Charles", "Dame Tu Corazon", and "Sobando El Piano Merengue".

Poncho SanchezChile Con Soul ... CD
Concord, 1990. Used ... $8.99
A brilliant set of Latin jazz from Poncho Sanchez – proof that he was one of the few musicians who really kept the classic sounds going during the 80s! The album's got a tight small group format that benefits from some especially great horn work from Gene Burkert on alto and tenor, Sal Cracchilo on trumpet, and Art Velsasco on trombone – all players who are often arranged with a real sharpness on the heads – that modern edge that first started coming strongly into Latin jazz during the years of Eddie Palmieri's best work. Charlie Otwell's the pianist on the date, and he contributed some great tunes to the record – including "Song For Cal", "A Night In London", "Chile Con Soul", "Nueva Charanga", and "Quieto". Tito Puente plays some guest timbales – and other titles include "Soul Burst", "Mama Guela", "Con Migo", "Ti Pon Pa", and "Cold Sweat/Funky Broadway". CD

VariousLet's Do The Boogaloo ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.98
A set that really gets at the full spectrum of the boogaloo groove – not just the Spanish Harlem sounds of the Latin Soul generation – but also the deeper roots of the style from across the USA! "Boogaloo" is a term that most folks use to refer to that New York uptown fusion of Latin rhythms and soulful vocals – and while the NYC styles were key to its fame, the music also burst forth from lots of points west, too – and came together in a flurry of fast rhythms, jazzy instrumentation, and hard-driving vocals that made for a completely infectious blend! This package is a fantastic testament to that mad musical moment – and is overflowing with a selection of gems that goes way past the obvious – not the Fania Records catalog that usually shows up on other boogaloo releases, but a huge batch of tracks from small labels and indie singles too. Titles include "Skate Boogaloo & Karate Too" by Lee Harris, "Block Party" by Jimmy Castor, "Boogaloo #3" by Roy Lee Johnson, "Do The Boo-Ga-Loo (part 1)" by Tom & Jerroo, "Playing It Cool" by Hector Rivera, "Ready Steady Go" by Prince & Princess, "Bar Kays Boogaloo" by The Bar-Kays, "What I Feel" by Richie & The PS 54 School Yard, "Have Some Boogaloo" by Timmy Thomas, "Bugalu" by Charlie Palmieri, "Boogaloo (part 1)" by The Bob & Earl Band, "Me & You Doing The Boogaloo" by Lou Courtney, "Boogaloo Zoo" by Shirley Butler, "Bugaloo Party" by Harold & Connie, "Boogaloo Investigator" by The Exotics, "Funky Funky Boogalo" by Jimmy Brown, and "Let's Do The Funky Boogaloo (part 1)" by Barry Jones.

✨✧ Herbie MannBig Boss Mann (aka Latin Mann) ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent album of Latin material from Herbie Mann – and proof that he's equally great in just about any setting! The album's a rare Columbia Records outing from Herbie – but it's easily one of his greatest of the 60s, thanks to some really smoking arrangements from Oliver Nelson – plus an all-star cast of players that includes Carmell Jones, Dave Pike, Jimmy Heath, Patato Valdez, Willie Bobo, Charlie Palmieri, and a young Chick Corea! Tracks are short, tight, and very rhythmic – grooving in a snapping approach to Latin that's filled with plenty of soul, but which also features plenty of jazzy touches as well. A few tunes here are familiar, but they're given wonderful new treatment by Herbie and Nelson – and the record easily beats most Verve or Impulse sessions of this type at their own game! Tracks include "Bijou", "Ave Maria Morena", "Watermelon Man", "Interlude", "Let's Boom Chitty Boom", "Senor Blues", "Jungle Fantasy", and "Jive Samba". (Also issued under the title Latin Mann.)

✨✧ VariousNu Yorica ! – Culture Clash In New York City 1970 to 1977 (20th anniversary edition) ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark collection – and one that virtually defined an entire generation unto itself! Back in the mid-90s, when this early Soul Jazz collection was first issued – there was a certain strain of Latin music that had been ignored for decades – that unusual fusion of Latin, soul, funk, and jazz that happened mostly in the New York underground of the 70s – at a time when salsa was reigning king, and some of the more soulful currents were getting lost in the shuffle. The work here is wonderful – and thanks to this set, finally has gotten its place in the history book – as a key moment when so many different scenes came together, and made some of the most groundbreaking Latin grooves of the 20th century! The set's got a wonderful book that's really a primer to hip Latin sounds of the 70s – and the 2CD set is filled with gems that include "La Trompeta Y La Flauta" by Cachao, "Gumbo" by Cortijo Y Su Maquina Del Tiempo, "Un Dia Bonita" by Eddie Palmieri and "Macho" by Machito Orchesta – plus "Las Negritas De Caranval" by Charlie Palmieri, "Mamey Colorao" by Ocho, "Aftershower Funk" by Joe Bataan, "Amigos" by Stone Alliance, "Babilonia" by Ricardo Marrero, "Anabaco" by Grupo Folklorico & Experimental, "Little Rico" by Bobby Vince Paunetto, "Condiciones Que Existen" by Eddie Palmieri, "My Friend" by Ricardo Marrero, and "Tornado" by Ocho.

A killer set of Latin Soul from the New York scene of the late 60s – a record that's every bit as wonderful as boogaloo classics on labels like Fania and Cotique, but which never got released at the time! The production quality is wonderful – with the mighty Bobby Marin heading up the whole set, and channeling the talents of a fantastic all-star lineup – which includes both Charlie Palmieri and Richie Ray on piano, Tito Puente on timbales, Bobby Rodriguez on bass, and Louie Ramirez on vibes – plus vocals from Jimmy Sabater and Willie Torres, who really give the record a lot of soul! The set's a mixture of instrumentals and vocal numbers, in English and Spanish – and titles include "Something New", "Nitty Boo Boo", "Would You Believe Me?", "Rice And Beans", "Dixie's Mambo", "Fun City Hippy", "Say Listen", "A Fool Like Me", "Papel De Bambu", and "Shingaling Now Boogaloo Later".

The album's got one really standout track entitled "Macho" – a 13 minute descarga number that spins out with lots of different changes, and which features some nice electric jazzy touches! Harvey Averne produced the entire session, with a nice undercurrent of Latin soul – and the album also features Charlie Palmieri on both organ and piano. Other tracks include "Mi Ritmo Llego", "Soy Salsero", "No Seras Para Mi", and "Desilusion". LP, Vinyl record album
