Fania All StarsQue Pasa – The Best Of The Fania All Stars ... CD
Columbia, Late 70s. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
Some of the best of the best of The Fania All Stars – magical music from that short stint when the combo were recording for Columbia Records in the late 70s! While at Columbia, the group grew even more than the styles of their roots at the Fania label – picking up some hipper touches of soul, club, and fusion – all of which were worked nicely to tighten up their groove. And while you might think that after playing side-long jams, these shorter cuts could represent a more commercial side for the group – to us, this shift is an important one that has the ensemble taking the old energy of the Latind descarga and bringing it nicely into focus for a huge crossover audience. The cuts here sparkle and glisten with the best non-Latin funk and club of the time – and the CD features 13 tracks from the albums Spanish Fever, Rhythm Machine, Cross Over, and Delicate & Jumpy – titles that include "Coro Miayre", "Ella Fue", "Fania All Stars Cha Cha Cha", "Los Bravos", "Peanuts", "Prepara", "Que Pasa", "Sin Tu Carino", "Isadore", and "Foofer Soofer".

Fania/Wagram (France), 1975. New Copy ... $10.99 12.99
By the mid 70s, the New York Latin scene was boomin' so large it could easily fill venues like Yankee Stadium – as you'll hear on this excellent live set from the Fania All-Stars, a monster record that easily ranks with the best live Latin sides of the time – like Eddie Palmieri at Sing Sing, the Tico-Alegre All Stars at Carnegie Hall, or Mongo Santamaria at Yankee Stadium! Tracks are nice and long – a real mix of soul and Latin, with slight funk and electric touches – and players include Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Bobby Valentin, Mongo Santamaria, Ricardo Ray, and Roberto Roena. Vocals are by a host of singers that include Santos Colon, Hector Lavoe, Ismael Rivera, and Celia Cruz. Manu Dibango also joins the group for the track "Congo Bongo", a great long number in which he does a hot little solo! Other tracks include "Bemba Colora", "Hermandad Fania", and "Echate Pa'Lla". CD

Ray BarrettoBarretto Power (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fania/Craft, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
A great Ray Barretto album from 1972 – one that beautifully showcases the master percussionist as he effortlessly shifts between Latin soul and 70's salsa styles! The group's nice and lean – with Adalberto Santiago on vocals, Papy Roman on trumpet, Louis Cruz on piano, and the great Andy Gonzalez on bass – a heck of a player whose solid rhythmic pulse was a big part of so many great albums of the time. Two great tracks make the album totally worth owning – "Right On" and "Power", both of are funky Latin soul numbers that are right out of Ray's Hard Hands period! Other tracks are equally great salsa numbers – and titles include "Y Dicen", "Perla Del Sur", and "Oye La Noticia". LP, Vinyl record album

A monster album of 70s salsa – and one that has bad boy Willie Colon taking the Latin world by storm – forging the new sound that would push him and the New York scene into the frontline of 70s Latin! Willie's got a strength on the set that's very much in keeping with his machine gun pose on the cover – a no-nonsense salsa groove that's overflowing with righteous pride and youthful energy – consciously aware of its new direction, and not afraid to show it! The album features the classic dancefloor groover "Che Che Cole", plus the tracks "Lo Me Llores Mas", "Sonero Mayor", "Sangrigorda", "Ausencia", and "Te Conozco". LP, Vinyl record album

Hector LavoeComedia (remastered edition) ... CD
Fania, 1978. Used ... $11.99
A hokey cover but a really classic album from Hector Lavoe – one of his biggest records of the 70s, and a great mix of modes that showcases the full range of his talents! The standout number here is the 10 minute groover "El Cantate" – a driving salsa tune penned by Ruben Blades, and performed here with some great arrangements by Willie Colon, who also produced the whole record. Other tracks mix together the same sort of grooves from "El Cantate" with some mellower more introspective moments – tunes that really have Lavoe shining as one of the most mature and compelling singers in Latin music at the time. Titles include "Bandolera", "Porque Te Conoci", "Songoroscosongo", "La Verdad", and "El Cantante". CD

Ismael Miranda con Orchestra HarlowAbran Paso! (remastered edition) ... CD
Fania, 1971. Used ... $12.99
The last album that Ismael Miranda cut with Orchestra Harlow – but an extremely strong effort that draws from all the great work they did together! Larry Harlow's still very firmly at the helm of the set – producing, arranging, and playing piano with the classic Orchestra Harlow lineup – but Miranda's vocals are a key focus of the album, stepping out proudly on a range of salsa themes that show a growing confidence in New York Latin for the 70s. One of the standout tracks is actually a Latin Soul groover with an earlier feel – the mighty "Rise Up", which features righteous soul lyrics in English, and plenty of great keyboard work alongside the percussion! Other tracks include Oigan Bien Mi Guaguanco", "Dolor Y Amor", "Abran Paso", "Se Casa La Rumba", and "Vengo Virao". CD

VariousSoul Of Spanish Harlem – Beautiful Soul Music From The Heart Of New York's Spanish Harlem ... LP
Fania/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99 24.99
One of the hippest sets we've ever seen on Spanish Harlem – a collection that goes way past the Latin Soul hits, to dig deep in the uptown underground at the end of the 60s! The package is compiled with gems from the Fania catalog, but rally moves past the obvious – going for some of the more obscure artists who recorded singles for some of the smaller Fania-held labels – and often focusing on tunes that drew more from late 60s soul and funk than they did from any Latin rhythms of the time. The singers are especially wonderful – and often hit a vibe that's right up there with some of Joe Bataan's best of the period – richly soulful, but often deeply personal too – never as polished as chart soul, and often showing a grittier, more realistic style that's totally great – especially when mixed with instrumentation as tight as this! Titles include "Reflections Of My Life" by 125th Street Candy Store, "On Old Broadway" by 107th Street Stickball Team, "Don't Be Afraid" by Lebron Brothers, "Central Park" by Harvey Averne Dozen, "Heaven" by Tito Ramos, "Your Smile" by Parris, "Some Lonely Heart" by Ronnie Marks, "There's No Girl" by Olivieri, "Maria Maria" by King Nando, "Already Satisfied" by Tony Middleton & Bobby Matos, "Nitty Boo Boo" by The Nitty Sextette, "Lonely Has Been My Day" by Ralphie & The Latin Lovers, "I'm Gonna Leave You" by Russell Cohen & The New Yorkers, and "Ain't No Big Thing" by Ralfi Pagan.

Fania, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ray Barretto's peeking out from behind a door on the cover of this album – and the image is a great illustration of the general feel of the album! Instead of the shirtless, super-macho Ray of previous years – the record has a Barretto who's a bit more laidback and subtle – working in a mix of Latin jazz and more traditional modes that are all played beautifully by his group of very familiar players. There's a relaxed ease to the record that's a welcome change from work that some of Barretto's contemporaries were recording at the time – a maturing approach to salsa that keeps things interesting throughout! Ricky Gonzalez and Angel Fernandez share arranging credits – and Barretto is joined by Jimmy Delgado on timbales, Eddie Torres on bongos, Ricky Gonzalez on piano, Wilson Torres and Angel Fernandez on trumpets, and Jimmy Bosch on trombone. Tracks include "La Resbalosa", "Amor De Lujo", "Si Me Voy Para Mi Islita", "No Te Quedes Sin Bailar", and "No Me Paren La Salsa". CD

Fantastic stuff from Ray Barretto – and one of his most sophisticated albums of the 70s! The album mixes together rootsy percussion and smoother jazzy arrangements – in a manner that keeps things fresh at all points, and which shifts the focus nicely from track to track – creating a really rich sound that's almost unlike anything else he ever recorded! Luiz Cruz plays excellent electric piano, and Adalberto Santiago is on lead vocals on a few tracks – and titles include the extended version of "Cocinando", used as the theme in Our Latin Thing – plus the cuts "Que Viva La Musica", "El Tiempo Lo Dira", "Bruca Manigua", and "Alafia Cumaye".

A young Hector LaVoe is on lead vocals, but the real star here is the group – who have a lean, mean, stripped-down sound that's really great!

Amazing Latin soul – and the first record ever by the youthful George Guzman! The grooves kick in from the word "go" – with strong electric bass setting the scene, and lots of dark, descending blue notes – copped from 60s soul and jazz influences, and crafted perfectly to fit the Spanish Harlem sound of the time! Lyrics are mostly in English, and nearly every track is a mad groover – of the sort that will make your stereo perk up its too-tired ears! Trust us, this one's a gem – a record we'd recommend to anyone – and filled with wonderful tracks like "Lazy Boogaloo", "French Boogaloo", "Herba Buena", "Chant Of The Isles", "Marilu", and the goofy "Banana Freak Out"!

Of course, Hector's got some big help on the record from Louie Ramirez and Jose Febles – who most likely did most of the arranging work, and ensure that the album grooves along in the focused salsa mode that always sounds best with Lavoe's vocals. Tracks are mostly upbeat and lively, with a strong focus on vocals – and titles include "Amor Sonando", "Juventud", "Soy Vagabundo", "El Son", "Seguire Mi Viaje", and "Yo Ta Cansa". CD

The record starts with this strange sound of a train pulling into a station, then rolls into a massive boogaloo groove that really sets the pace for the album – hitting hard with some heavy percussion, and really pushing the group through a great blend of English and Spanish language numbers! The whole thing's great – easily one of the best by the group – and titles include "Be Free", "El Exigente", "That Groovy Shingaling", "Mess Around", "Freak Off", and "Groovin' to the Afro-Twist".

A great album that has Bobby moving into "something new", as he switches from trumpet-based Latin Soul, into a bass-heavy groove that shows the roots of 70s salsa! The album's a killer, and Bobby's combo is in excellent form – working with a tightness that would set the pace for many other groups of the time! We're not sure who the pianist is, but he lays down some excellent solos – especially on the album's instrumental descarga track. A young Frankie Hernandez sings some soulful vocals on other tracks, and titles include "Casino", "Pan De Negro", "Huracan", "Total Para Nada", and a very soulful version of "Fire & Rain". CD

Bobby's playing electric bass throughout, but his biggest skill here is really that of a leader – one who really brings strong focus to the group, and lets it hit strongly both on righteous groovers and some warmer numbers too. Vocals are by Marvin Santiago and Frankie Hernandez – and titles include "Amar Y Vivir", "Borinquen You Te Canto", "Siempre Junto A Ti", "Bella Mujer", and "Safa Diablo" – plus a surprising Latin jazz version of "Shiny Stockings"!

Fania/Jazzman (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The vaults of Fania Records, plumbed by the Jazzman crew – all in a double-strength approach to Latin grooves! The wealth of great music on Fania, Tico, and related labels is well-known to Latin groovers worldwide – but the Jazzman crew have managed to bring a nicely fresh perspective to the labels here – going for cuts that show the labels' appeal to the funky 45 underground, thanks to a healthy dose of soul, jazz, and funk in the mix! Most of these numbers represent the cream of the crop of the New York scene of the late 60s and early 70s – not the mainstream one, but the side that was bubbling under uptown – as influences from Spanish Harlem mixed in nicely with older influences from Cuba and Puerto Rico. CD features 18 tracks in all – most of the numbers that were previously on the expensive 7" box sets that were part of the Fania/Jazzman project – and the set also features all the original notes on each tune too. Titles include "Doug's Room" by Mauricio Smith, "Come An Get It" by Eddie Palmieri & Cal Tjader, "Soana" by Noro Morales, "Hit The Bongo" by Tito Puente, "Geronimo" by Bobby Valentin, "Fever" by La Lupe, "Soul Drummers" by Ray Barretto, "Black Brothers" by Tito Puente, "Mambomongo" by Mongo Santamaria, "Camel Walk" by The Latinaires, "Tighten Up" by Al Escobar, "I Got The Feeling" by Chollo, "Use It Before You Lose It" by Bobby Valentin, and "Never Learned To Dance" by Harvey Averne.

Ray's late 60s Acid album is a landmark recording – a sublime mixture of Latin jazz, percussion, and soul – grooving hard in a variety of styles, and always hitting the money on every single track. The title cut "Acid" is one of those tunes you'll be playing until you're locked up in a nursing home – and the rest of the record is equally great – with cuts like the bouncy groover "Soul Drummers", the tasty boogaloo "El Nuevo Barretto", and the extended "Espiritu Libre", a great Latin jazz track, with very "out" piano!

The album's a killer – filled with uptempo tracks that mix together Latin funk, jazz, and salsa – into an electrified groove that burns mightily across all the tracks! The album's got a great blend of electric keys and funky bass, layered against lots of acoustic percussion and cutting horn solos on soprano, tenor, and flute. Most tracks have vocals, and overall, the album's sort of a funkier version of the legendary Harlem River Drive album – if you can believe that! Titles include "Love Is", "NYC Blues Day", "Afro Rican Suite (parts 1 & 2)", "Mambo Rock", and "Funky Felix". CD

✨✧ Tipica 73Charangueando Con La Tipica 73 ... CD
Fania, 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
Killer "new charanga" work from Tipica 73 – a record issued a bit later on their run for Fania, but filled with wonderful tunes that get at all the traditional energy of the group! Tracks here are loose and free, really in the spirit of the jam session mode that first produced the group – referenced by producer/arranger Sonny Bravo in the liner notes, and followed through beautifully by a lineup that includes Jose Alberto on vocals, Rene Lopez on trumpet, Dick Meza on tenor sax and flute, Alfredo De La Fe on violin, Jose Grajales on the congas and Mario Rivera on baritone sax. Titles include "Busco Una Chiquita", "Adonde Vas", "Cachita", "Yo No Camino Mas", "Tunas", "Chanchullo", "Galletana", and "Comparsas". CD

✨✧ Tipica 73Into The 80s (remastered edition) ... CD
Fania, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
The last album ever from Tipica 73 – served up in a wealth of different styles that really break from the traditions of their roots! There's still a very tight salsa vibe running through the whole set, but the rhythms are breaking out a bit more than before – with bits of merengue and some jazzier touches contrasting with the classic charanga mode of the first few Tipica records. But that change is also a nice one too – as dynamic as the title (if not the cover) might imply – and served up with a positive, confident spirit throughout. Vocals are by Jose Alberto, and titles include "Llevatela", "El Humito", "Tula", "Fascinacion", "Chachaguere", "La Igualidad", and "Gladys Y Manolo". CD

Fania, 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
A stunner of a salsa set from Johnny Zamot – as musically striking as its great cover image! The session has Johnny at his best – working in a tight 70s mode that's every bit as solid as his 60s boogaloo work – assisted by players that include Louie Ramirez and Yomo Toro, and featuring lead vocals by Ray Ramos and Pee Wee Fernandez. Titles include "Yo Soy Boricua", "Traidores", "La Humanidad", "Ay Corazon", and "Entre Amistad". CD

✨✧ Ray BarrettoAcid ... CD
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A monster! If you buy one Latin record this year – make it this one – because it's one of the greatest ever recorded! Ray's late 60s Acid album is a landmark recording – a sublime mixture of Latin jazz, percussion, and soul – grooving hard in a variety of styles, and always hitting the money on every single track. The title cut "Acid" is one of those tunes you'll be playing until you're locked up in a nursing home – and the rest of the record is equally great – with cuts like the bouncy groover "Soul Drummers", the tasty boogaloo "El Nuevo Barretto", and the extended "Espiritu Libre", a great Latin jazz track, with very "out" piano! CD
(Nice reissue – remastered from the original tapes, with a bonus book of notes!)

Hugh MasekelaLive In Lesotho ... LP
Matsuli (UK), 1981. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $34.99
It's a strange thing to see Hugh Masekela sitting on a horse, out in a field – and the cover hardly gets at the energy that's going on inside – since the album features a full, funky live performance from the famous trumpeter – at a time when his group included piano and keyboards from the great Don Blackman! The style's a blend of funk with some of Hugh's older South African styles – served up on very long tracks that have Masekela singing a fair bit too, but with ample solo space for solos from great musicians who include Rene McLean on alto and tenor, and Victor Bailey on bass. Blackman did all the arrangements with Hugh, and you can really hear his sophisticated touch – on titles that include "Sister Fania", "Healing Song", "Stimela", "Part Of A Whole", "Ashiko", and "Ha Le Se Le Li Khanna".

Futuro/BBE (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Raw salsa from the streets of Brooklyn – served up here by a very obscure group, but one who work in the best styles of the Fania and Cotique Records scenes of the time! There's a strong Puerto Rican influence on the rhythms at times – very much that new spirit that was emerging with pride and power as the 70s moved in – but there's also some trailing currents of the Latin Soul generation, in the way that Cotique was working at the time – particularly on records by Joey Pastrana! Lyrics are in English on some tracks, and mighty darn soulful – and the group's led by Hector Ramos, who both sings and plays some massive trombone! Titles include "I'll Make You A Queen", "Vamanos/Let's Go", "Uptight", "Just Like A Fool", "Problems", "Cuero", and "Candela" CD

Mongo SantamariaRed Hot ... LP
Tappan Zee, 1979. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A great Bob James-directed session from Mongo Santamaria – and a set that takes the fusion-inflected Latin work he was doing on the Vaya label, and blends it with an even tighter, sharper CTI Records vibe! The approach is a bit like that combination of underground Latin and larger label resources that brought great sounds to both Ray Barretto and the Fania All Stars at the time – and the session features excellent CTI help from Bob James on keyboards, Eric Gale on guitar, and Hubert Laws on flute – the latter of whom got his start working with Mongo in the 60s! Titles include a funky electric remake of "Watermelon Man", plus the cuts "Afro Cuban Fantasy", "Jamaican Sunrise", "Jai Alai", and "Sambita". LP, Vinyl record album

Panart/Craft, Late 50s/Early 60s. Near Mint- 5LP Box Set ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible collection of records – a series of albums that forever changed the sound of Latin music around the world! These five sets were all cooked up in the changing Cuban scene at the start of the 60s – where musicians were getting looser and freer, with a sound that was quite different than the tighter big bands of a few years before – strongly influenced by changes in American jazz, including the jam session mode that was big on record during the 50s! In a way, these sides are an answer to that – as they feature all-star musicians coming together on long, more spontaneous tracks – often in smaller combos with heavy influence on rhythm, and lots of work from the key soloists on the dates. Each record has a different leader, but often some of the same musicians – and there's some especially great work on trumpet and tenor by other members of the group – at a level that went on to influence the small combo sound of artists like Joe Cuba, the grooves of the Latin Soul/boogaloo scene, and even the all-star American groups like the Alegre All Stars and Fania All stars in years to come. Records 1 and 2 feature leadership by Julio Gutierrez, record 3 is led by Nino Rivera, record 4 (the most famous) is led by bassist Cachao, and record 5 is led by flautist Fajardo.

✨✧ Pucho & The Latin Soul BrothersSaffron & Soul/Shuckin & Jivin ... CD
Prestige/BGP (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A double-header to die for – two of the rarest albums from Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers – back to back on a single CD! First up is Saffron & Soul – one of the first albums from the legendary Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers – a wonderful little record that evenly blends together jazz, Latin, and soul music! There's a stronger soul jazz vibe here than on some later Pucho sets – partly due to the strong use of jazz in the rhythms, but also to the record's excellent horn work – not by the Pazant Brothers, but by Harold Alexander on tenor and flute, Claude Bartee on tenor, and Vicent McEwan on trumpet – all players who really make the record sparkle! The set's heavy on vibes too – a Pucho trademark, played here by Willie Bivins – and titles include the excellent "Soul Yamie", plus "Something Black", "The Groover", "Caravan", "Aye Ma Ma", and "What A Piece". Shuckin & Jivin is one of the most soulful albums ever recorded by Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers – a set that really shows the changing sound of Latin music in the late 60s – with some fresh vocals added to the group by Jackie Soul! Jackie only sings on a few cuts, but really brings in a raw Spanish Harlem vibe – one that gives the set a bit more of a Fania/Cotique sort of groove than usual – even when the group are leaping ahead on tight instrumentals – tunes that really sparkle with piano from Neal Creque, vibes from Willy Bivens, and tenor sax from Claude Bartee! Vocal gems include "Shuckin & Jivin", "CC Rider", and "You Are My Sunshine" – instrumental tracks include "Return To Me", "Swing Thing", "Maiden Voyage", and "How Insensitive". CD

✨✧ Chollo Rivera & The Latin Soul DrivesBy Chollo ... CD
Cotique, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An obscure classic from the Latin Soul generation – the standout set recorded by the young Chollo Rivera and his strangely-named group The Latin Drives! The set's got equal parts soul and equal parts Latin – in a way that's similar to some of Joe Bataan's albums for Fania from the same time – young, free, and proud – really steeped in the blend of races and cultures that were bubbling through the best records of the New York scene in the late 60s! Instrumentation includes some very sharp twin-trombones in the lead, plus trumpet, piano, bass, bongo, and timbales from Chollo. English vocals are sung by Billy Scruggs, Spanish vocals by Israel Perez – and titles include "Montuno Con Soul", "Black & Blues", "Latin Soul Drive Is Here", "Pega Pega", "Swing Que Va", "I'm The One Who Loves You", and a nice cover of "I Got The Feeling" that really Latinizes the James Brown hit!

✨✧ Orlando MarinOut Of My Mind ... LP
Brunswick, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A Latin Soul classic – but one that's a lot more obscure than some of the better-remembered albums on Fania and Tico from the late 60s! Orlando Marin is probably mostly known as an arranger, and a leader from the earlier years of the New York scene – but during the Latin Soul years he cut this fantastic set for Decca – easily one of the best of the all-great Latin sides the label was doing at the time! Lyrics are often in English, and sung with a good deal of soul by Eddie Revere – and Orlando's group crackles with the intensity of the Joe Cuba Sextet – thanks to a timbales-heavy sound in the lead, lots of dark piano on the bottom, and some trumpety flourishes on the top – all with a nice dose of jazz in the mix. Soul-based titles include "Sugarfoot Baby", "The Hustler", and "Out Of My Mind" – and other titles include "Eenie Meenie Chow Chow", "Chickie's Cookie", "La Lengua", "Palo Monte", and "No Puede Ser".

CuBop/Ubiquity, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A Latin soul treasure from Bobby Matos – quite different than his straighter jazzy work of recent years, and a stone cooker to rival the best of the New York indies in the late 60s! Like cookers on Fania and Cotique, the set's got a groove that's rooted in descarga – with loads of great percussion and jazzy instrumentation – then mixed with a heady dose of late 60s Spanish Harlem soul, which means that there's some good boogaloo elements on the set that really start things on fire – a massive groove that goes way beyond standard Latin, and which has made the record a treasure for years! Nearly ever cut's a killer – and titles include "Raices", "Mambo Maxims", "Trailo A Casa", "Caliente Y Grasoso", "Up In Alfred's Pad", and "Ritchie's Boogaloo". Essential CD

Dorado/BGP (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lost grooves from Spanish Harlem – an incredible set of Latin Soul from The 107th Street Stickball Team! With a name like that, the group certainly aren't as well-remembered as contemporaries like Joe Bataan or Willie Colon, but they've got a soulful groove that definitely fits the style of the time – a sweet uptown blend of Harlem soul and Latin rhythms – with the same blend of sweet soul ballads and uptempo groovers you'd find on some of Bataan's classic albums for Fania Records! Bobby Marin put the whole album together, with a tight groove that's very similar to his work for Speed Records – played here by a group that includes Orlando Marin, Louie Ramirez, Ozzie Torrens, and Joey Pastrana – all kings of Latin Soul at the time! Vocalists include Butch Johnson and Danny Agosto – but there's a real group feel to the record, with lots of harmonies behind the lead – the kind of streetcorner soul you might have heard while catching a stickball game on one of the side streets up north of Harlem. Titles include "Toma Guajira", "Look To Me", "You Put A Hurt In My Heart", "Rhythm & Soul", "Mojo Shingaling", "Barbara With The Kooky Eyes", "Tell Her I Love Her", and "Let Me Do My Thing". CD features 3 bonus tracks by The Nitty Sextet, all previously unissued – "Nitty Boo Boo", "Something New", and "Say Listen". CD

One of the coolest, grooviest albums of Latin Soul you could ever hope to find – one of the few records ever from the great Ray Terrace – and a set that goes even beyond some of the similar sides on Tico or Fania at the time! Ray's groove here is totally wonderful – upbeat, joyous, and blending soul and jazz in equal parts – often with English language lyrics that have the best sort of Spanish Harlem sound. Many tunes are covers, but they're completely remade by the record – with lively arrangements from Marty Sheller that never let up, and smoking soul lead vocals by Willie Torres. The whole thing swings, and there's never a dull minute – on titles that include "Get On Up", "You've Been Talking 'Bout Me Baby", "Half Way Down", "Listen To Me", and the great "I Make A Fool Of Myself".

Prepare to have your mind blown – and discover a whole new genre of funky grooves! Henri "Kike" Guedon was a French West Indian percussionist who recorded in both Paris and New York – crafting a really unique style that brought together American, Caribbean, and Parisian takes on more traditional Afro-Cuban sounds! Guedon puts his bongo work right up in the front of the mix – giving the tunes a crackling percussive-heavy drive from the get-go, and smoking up the rhythms with a style that's even more compelling than 70s New York salsa. Most tracks feature vocals, heavy horns, and a really full-on groove that reminds us of the best of Fania at the time – yet which also crackles with lots of interesting cross-cultural references as well! Titles include "Guajira Contestacion", "Shiga Swing", "Faut Pas Pousser", "Ritmo Moderno", "Los Antillanos De Paris", and "Brujeira". CD

Alessandro MagnaniniSomeway Still I Do (colored vinyl pressing with bonus tracks) ... LP
Schema (Italy), 2009. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
A real rising star on Schema Records – composer Alessandro Magnanini, best known for his hit with Mario Biondi – stepping out here in a beautiful album of his own original music! There's a fresh feel here that really opens up a new chapter at Schema – still a bit of their old jazz/bossa vibe, but with a more expansive quality too – one that embraces bits of Bacharach, snaps of 60s soundtracks, and gentler jazzier passages too – all put together by a group that features key talents from the contemporary Italian scene – like vocalists Rosalia De Souza and Stefania Rava, trumpeter Fabrizio Bosso, and other instrumentalists on vibes, piano, tenor, and trombone. Most instrumentation is live – scored nicely, but not enough so that it loses the spontaneity of jazz – and other vocals are by Jenny B and Liam McKahey. The work is really beautiful – still mostly upbeat, but hardly just the stuff of dancefloor grooving too – key proof that Maganini's a big talent to watch in years to come. Titles include "Livin My Life", "Open Up Your Eyes", "Stay Into My Life", "But Not For You", "Greetings From Here", "Something Fine", "Suddenly", "Blind Date Blues", and "So Long Goodbye".
