✨✧ Johnny ColonBoogaloo Blues ... LP
Cotique, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A landmark record that should be in any Latin collection! At the time of this album, Johnny Colon was a young trombonist just getting his start – working in the turbulent late 60s Spanish Harlem scene, and picking up on the wide range of styles going down in the hood. At one level, he was a straight player with a love for the sound of the early 60s descarga era – but at another, he was a young kid absorbing all the soul, funk, and drug influences that were coming out of other groups at the time. The result is a really amazing album with a slow, sinister groove that's unlike anything else we can think of. Tracks roll over one another with uncanny beats and a sad and soulful feel – shifting between English and Spanish to reflect the speech patterns of the members of the band – and really opening up with some killer grooves that have made the album a treasure for years! Titles include "Judy (part 2)", "Canallon", "Jumpy", "Boogaloo Blues", "Descarga", and "Mi Querida Bomba". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny ColonPortrait Of Johnny ... LP
Cotique, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A stunning portrait of one of the best young artists on the New York Latin scene at the end of the 60s! Johnny Colon initially cooked up a groove with a run of some really important Latin Soul albums – and here, as the 70s come on, he's moving into smoking salsa territory with all the youthful energy of his earlier work! There's a really dark edge to the tracks – lots of downturning blue notes on piano and trombone, making for a sound that's tremendously compelling. The album includes 2 great mambo tracks – "New York Mambo" and "Retorno Del Mambo" – plus the groovers "Son Montuno", "Guajira y Tambor", and "Ya Yi Ki". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gilberto SextetGroovy Sounds Of The Gilberto Sextet ... LP
Cotique, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
Groovy Sounds is right – as the Gilberto Sextet were one of the coolest bands of their day! The group were equal parts soul and equal parts Latin – grooving in that unique New York crossover style that percolated nicely at the end of the 60s. The album makes a strong statement of this position from the get-go – with a smoking medley of the pop hits "Hang On Sloopy/La Bamba/Guantanamera" – all rolled together in one great little track with a heck of a lot of energy! The album's also got a very lively cover of "Good Lovin" – which is a nice nod to how much The Rascals stole from the Latin Soul kids of the day – plus other nice tracks like "Mi Merengue", "Oye Este Son", "Please Don't Stop", "No Critiques", and "Tu Sabes Porques". Nice vibes, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Lebron BrothersLlegamos/We're Here ... LP
Cotique, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
Soaring salsa from the mighty Lebron Brothers – a group who first burst on the Latin scene with a strong run of Latin Soul recordings, but who are taking a more straightforward approach here! Yet that change hardly makes any difference, as the Lebrons still have that bold, youthful energy that made their records such a great change from some of the too-big bands of the previous generation in Latin music – and their shift from boogaloo to salsa is a great example of the way the key younger acts were helping make the waves that so many other artists would follow! Pablo Lebron sings lead vocals, and Angel and Jose Lebron co-lead the mighty tight grooves – which include alto from Gabe Gill and tenor from Herman Saldana – both players who keep a soulful sound to the set. Titles include "Mi Fracaso", "Si Ti", "Todo Lo Hechaste Ha Perder", "Orgullo, Riqueza Y Lujo", and "Tus Recuerdos". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lebron BrothersSalsa Y Control ... LP
Cotique, Early 70s. Very Good ... $29.99
A stone kicker by the Lebron Brothers – not as all-out Latin soul as the group's first few records, but a heck of a great session nonetheless! The album's got the brothers moving into more of a 70s salsa mode, but still keeping the small combo edge of their earlier albums – singing in Spanish all the way through, but delivering a groove that's musically universal! Titles include "Estoy Loco", "Bongo Loco", "Que Pana", "Piensa Lo Bien", and "Tu Llegaste A Mi Vida". LP, Vinyl record album
(Venezuelan pressing. Cover has light stains and some waviness along the opening.)

✨✧ Orquesta FlamboyanDifferent Directions ... LP
Cotique, 1968. Very Good ... $39.99
One of the first records by this rootsy New York group from the 60s – a small ensemble from the Latin Soul generation, but a combo who recorded in more traditional modes overall! The group's got a style that really points the way towards 70s salsa – tight percussion and piano, a strong twin-trombone lead, and solid lead vocals from Frankie Dante – in Spanish throughout, with very little of the Latin Soul modes you might expect from Cotique Records at the end fo the 60s. The album's produced with a great sound overall, and titles include "El Jibaro", "Paz", "Ay Que Felicidad", "Pa Guaynabo", "La Negra Caridad", and "Flores". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has clear tape on the seams, ink stamps and some correction fluid on front, and some marker on back with an upside-down paste-on. Labels have some marker.)

✨✧ Johnny ColonBoogaloo '67 ... LP
Cotique, 1967. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best boogaloo sessions from the late 60s! This is a massive batch of tracks with a hard raw groove, played by a youthful band that was one of the most important in the Latin soul genre. Nearly every cut's a winner, and there's lots of stuff on here that you'll come back to again and again. Titles include "You Gotta Love Me", "Mezclodo", "Oyelo", "New Cha", and "The Line Dance". Very good all the way through, and one that rarely shows up on wax! LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has a small stain on back.)

✨✧ Louie RamirezLouie Ramirez Y Sus Amigos ... CD
Cotique, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real step forward for the great Louie Ramirez – a classic 70s set that has Louie mixing all his previous sense of groove with some more sophisticated orchestrations – all while keeping a lean salsa vibe to the whole record! The "amigos" here are all great – as the album features Marty Sheller and Sonny Bravo on arrangements; Mauricio Smith, Bravo, and Ray Maldonado on instrumental solos; and Ruben Blades, Azuquita, and Adalberto Santiago on vocals – all artists who work together perfectly with the lead of Ramirez, as he continues to find new paths forward through Latin music. Louie plays few great vibes solos on the record – and titles include a killer instrumental version of "Something", plus the jazzy instrumental "Salsa Vibes", and other nice ones like "Because", "El Poeta Lloro", and "Paula C". CD
