✨✧ Ray BarrettoAcid ... CD
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily 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!)

✨✧ Ray BarrettoPortraits In Jazz And Clave ... CD
RCA/Victor, 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little jazz album from Ray – more so than most of his earlier work from the 60s and 70s, and performed here with a great batch of players that include guest appearances by Kenny Burrell, Steve Turre, Eddie Gomez, and Joe Lovano. Adam Koller is in Ray's regular group – and he gets in some great licks on tenor and soprano that really open up Ray's Latin versions of jazz standards like "I Mean You", "Johnny Come Lately", "Cotton Tail", "Oclupaca", "Like Sonny", and Wayne Shorter's "Go".

✨✧ Ray BarrettoQue Viva La Musica (remastered edition) ... CD
Fania, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Ray BarrettoSenor 007 ... CD
United Artists/West Side Latino, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite Ray Barretto albums of the 60s – a real gem from the pre-Latin Soul years! The album's a clear attempt to cash in on the cash in on the James Bond craze of the time – issued by United Artists, who were releasing the Bond films, but also had Ray under contract during the period too. But despite that simple gimmick, it's a great little set – with a quality level that goes way beyond Bond soundtracks, or the usual from Barretto at the time! The tracks are all hard and groovy, with an excellent jazz feel – and some killer arranging from Ray that's right up there with the work he did for his legendary Charanga Moderna album! You may recognize the song titles – but their versions here are superb, and the album's filled with many many wonderful moments that step out with mad rhythms and great jazzy touches. Titles include "Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", "OO7", "Search For Vulcan", "Thunderball", and "Goldfinger". Nice "spy" shot of Ray on the cover, too! CD

✨✧ Ray BarrettoBarretto Power (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fania/Craft, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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
(50th Anniversary Edition on 180 gram vinyl!)

✨✧ Ray BarrettoEl Ray Criollo ... CD
Fania, 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
Ray Barretto just before the Latin Soul era – working in the excellent style he used on his Charanga Moderna album – a choppy groove that has plenty of weird twists and turns – always rhythmic, and always plenty darn soulful! The instrumentation here is a mix of small combo jazz and some of the charanga modes – with two violins, trumpet, trombone, piano, and timbales – plus vocals by Willie Garcia and Adalberto Santiago. The groove is nice and sinister on the best cuts – with that strange offbeat sound that Ray was bringing to Latin music at the time – an edge that was missing from earlier work, and which really helped set the scene for the boogaloo generation! Titles include "Rareza En Guajira", "Descarga Criolla", "Salsa y Dulzura", "Don Lengua", and "Yo Soy La Candela". CD

✨✧ Gene AmmonsJug (second cover) ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A real turning point in the career of Gene Ammons – a record that almost returns Ammons to his earthier roots, and in the process helps build up a whole new sound in soul jazz for the 60s! The "Jug" nickname in the title is kind of a joking way to help Ammons stand alongside "Miles", "Trane", "Diz", and other one-name monikered stars in jazz – but even without that gimmick (which somehow lasted for years), the album's got a depth that more than gets Gene back on top, thanks to a gritty soulfulness and good sense of feeling in the grooves! Players here include Richard Wyands on piano on most numbers – plus a rare appearance by Clarence "Sleepy" Anderson on 2 numbers – one on organ, one on piano. Rhythm is by Doug Watkins on bass and JC Heard on drums – and Ray Barretto makes one of his great soul jazz appearances on drums – rolling the groove along with a nice bit of bounce throughout! Titles include "Tangerine", "Ol Man River", "Easy To Love", "Seed Shack", "Miss Lucy", and "Namely You". LP, Vinyl record album

Fania All-StarsLive At Yankee Stadium Vols 1 & 2 ... LP
Fania/Craft, 1975. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99 29.99
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 – and 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", "Echate Pa'Lla", "Pueblo Latino", "Mi Gente", and "Soy Guajiro". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Johnny LytleMoon Child (ABC/Riverside) ... LP
Riverside/ABC, 1963. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of the rarest early albums by Johnny Lytle – and a very tasty set of tracks that has a slightly different kick than usual. Johnny's regular trio with Milt Harris on organ and Peppy Hinant on drums is joined by Steve Cooper on bass and Ray Barretto on congas – which gives the tracks a fuller sound, and a nicely rolling groove from the conga. The vibes and organ still dominate strongly – which is ok by us – and the sound is opened past Johnny's regular stepping groove. Titles include a number of nice originals like "The House Of Winchester", "Moon Child", and "The Moor Man" – plus "Work Song" and "A Taste Of Honey". LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley Scott/Yusef LateefSoul Song/The Diverse Yusef Lateef ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1968/1970. Used ... $9.99
Two lost funky records from Atlantic on one CD! Soul Song is a nice one by Shirley Scott – with more of a funk groove than earlier work, and a little bit more of a soul jazz sound than some of her Prestige albums. The record features Eric Gale playing some nice guitar, plus Stanley Turrentine blowing tenor on a number of cuts, and Shirley on organ, and even singing on one track. The tracks are a bit longer than usual, too – and titles include a cover of "Think", plus "Soul Song", "Mr. Businessman", "When A Man Loves A Woman", and "Like A Lover". The Diverse is one of the best of Yusef Lateef's Atlantic recordings, and one that offers a mix of his 2 different sides – his older spiritualist one, and his newer funkier one. Includes the tight groover "Live Humble", with nice conga work by Ray Barretto, plus the extended "Chandra" and "A Long Time Ago", both with nice exotic flute work by Yusef, and a weird mix of instruments, in the tradition of his older Savoy sessions.

SolSol (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Guerra Company/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $31.99
Killer Latin funk from the mid 70s – a totally rare little set, but a masterpiece all the way through! Sol is a combo headed up by keyboardist Joe Gallardo – and they've got a groove that blends together some wonderful elements – including jazz funk, straight Latin, and a bit of Chicano soul – all wrapped up in a warm, west coast sort of vibe that's totally great! In a way, the album almost feels like some lost treasure from Fantasy Records' best funky years – but it's also got a more unique feel overall, and a way of changing up the groove that keeps things fresh throughout. Lead vocals are by Ray Romero, who sings in English, and almost echoes Mark Murphy's style on Muse – and other instrumentation includes guitar, flute, saxes, trumpet, and lots of Latin percussion. Titles include the cut "Maranatha", a very nice groover – plus a version of Ray Barretto's "El Que Se Fue", Stevie Wonder's "Bird Of Beauty", and the original cuts "Sailing", "Patrice", "Someday", and "Squeeze".

Prestige/OJC, 1962. Used ... $3.99
An album that was more famously issued under the title Nuther Fu'ther – and which features Stitt & McDuff in a very tasty set of ortan/tenor grooves, played with that style that Prestige was finally beginning to perfect in the early 60s, as it let these organ combos shake off their 50's R&B sound, and start to hit a straighter jazz groove. Art Taylor's on drums, Eddie Diehl's on guitar, and Ray Barretto lopes along behind on congas. Titles include "Thirty Three, Ninety Six", "Nuther Fu'Ther", "Ringin' In", and "Pam Ain't Blue". CD

Joe ZawinulTo You With Love ... LP
Strand, 1959. Very Good ... $14.99
Very early work from Joe Zawinul – an unusual trio outing recorded upon Zawinul's initial arrival in the US, years before later fame with Cannonball Adderley and Weather Report! Although Joe's heavy-grooving touch on the keys was a big part of the Adderley sound in the 60s, his style here is lighter and more lyrical – sweetly contemplative at times, but still also with a bit of rhythmic vamping from time to time – hinting at that sound that would blossom more strongly on later recordings. There's a flowing grace to the record that we really love – and which is ably supported by the bass of George Tucker and drums of Frankie Dunlop – as well as by Ray Barretto's congas, which groove nicely on a few tracks. Titles include "Easy Living", "Love For Sale", "Masquerade Is Over", "Greensleeves", "Squeeze Me", and "Sweet & Lovely". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Art BlakeyHoliday For Skins Vol 2 (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The rarest of all of Art Blakey's percussion group projects – and quite possibly the best, too! The session features Blakey at the head of a strong mix of jazz and percussion players – with Art Taylor and Philly Joe Jones on the regular drum kit, Donald Byrd on trumpet and Ray Bryant on piano, and a host of assorted percussion work by the likes of Ray Barretto, Sabu Martinez, Victor Gonzalez, Julio Martinez, and others. The resultant sound is incredible – very full, rich, and earthy – and done in a way that interweaves African and Latin percussion styles with straighter American jazz! A few cuts have chanting by Blakey and Sabu – and titles on this second volume include "Otinde", "Swingin Kilts", "Dinga", and "Reflection". CD

This classic set features the guitarist in a quintet with Stanley Turrentine on tenor, Major Holly on bass, Bill English on drums, and the great Ray Barretto on conga – a really great lineup that sparkles with soulful imagination, and moves with a very rhythmic groove – thanks to Ray's extra percussion contribution on the bottom! Burrell's guitar somehow seems a bit harder and grittier than ever – and titles include the classic groover "Chittlins Con Carne", an early jazz dance classic – plus "Soul Lament", "Wavy Gravy", and "Mule".

✨✧ DeodatoPrelude ... CD
CTI, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A legendary album from the 70s funk scene – and one of the crowning achievements of keyboard maestro Eumir Deodato! Deodato got his start during the bossa years of the 60s – where his sophisticated charts were already enough to make his career a landmark – but in the following decade he picked up the Fender Rhodes, and really took off in a great new direction with classic records like this! The set's a wonderful blend of larger charts and jazzy soloing – with sublime Rhodes lines from the leader, plus a mix of acoustic and electric instrumentation in the best CTI mode – underscored by percussion from both Ray Barretto and Airto. The features Deodato's remake of "Also Sprach Zarathustra" into the funky "2001" – soaring with Fender Rhodes lines that set a new standard for the instrument, with a funky undercurrent that few would have expected for the tune. Other tracks are nice too – and include a great bossa-y version of "Baubles Bangles & Beads", plus "Spirit Of Summer", "September 13", and "Carly & Carole". CD

There's a sweet bounce to most tracks here – the kind of vibe that Lou had most famously on his Blues Walk album – thanks to the presence of Ray Barretto on congas, in the company of Horace Parlan on piano, Ben Tucker on bass, and Al Harewood on drums! Parlan's piano gives the whole thing a great soulful bottom – and titles include "Midnight Sun", "Dog Walk", "The Squirrel", "Si Si Safronia", and "Candy". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny StittDumpy Mama ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty wild album from legendary saxophonist Sonny Stitt – one that's quite different from the bop of his roots, but equally groovy in its own sort of way! The album is a handful that Sonny cut in the 70s with an electric vibe – similar to his work for Chess and Prestige records ad the time, and a great new outlet for his maturing reed style – thanks to the handling of the Flying Dutchman label! The cover and title might make you assume the set's an all-out funk affair – but instead, it's a reworking of older Stitt modes, into a hip 70s style – with keyboards and piano from Mike Wofford, and some additional work on saxes from Pee Wee Ellis and Frank Strozier – both players who provide nice backing to Sonny's solos. Highlights include the mighty ten minute title track, "Dumpy Mama" – and the cut "Jason", which has a slight Latin vibe, thanks to percussion from Ray Barretto. Other titles are nice, too – reworked standards with a 70s vibe – including "It Might As Well Be Spring", "Just Friends", and "Danny Boy For Ben". CD

A silly title, but a funky little record – one of the only ones we've ever seen from guitarist Jay Berliner, and one of the best cookers from the early 70s Mainstream Records years! The sound here is almost soundtrack funk at points – lots of up-front lines from Berliner on guitar – riffing away over backings that include organ and keyboards from Paul Griffin, congas from Ray Barretto, drums from Jimmy Johnson, and additional rhythm guitar from Cornell Dupree. Wade Marcus arranged, and the sound is tight without being slick – a great sort of Kudu Records-styled groove – and an especially nice setting for Jay's guitar. Titles include "Getting The Message", "Stickball", "I'm Still In Love With You", "I Just Want To Be There", "Papa Was A Rolling Stone", and a nice cover of Bill Withers' "Use Me"! CD

✨✧ VariousDance The Latin – Swingin' Mambos, Soulful Salsa & Funky Rhythms From The Hip Latin Dancefloors Of New York City ... CD
Fania/Jazzman (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... 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.

A cool collection of Latin remixes – contemporary takes on the Fania Records grooves of the 60s and 70s – all done in a very groovy way! The tracks here are quite respectful of the original tunes – no surprise, considering the Fania influence on many of these producers and mixers – and the new versions here really come off with a great deal of charm and soul – no silly gimmicks at all! Most numbers push older Latin grooves into surprisingly compelling territory, yet still keep the best original elements intact – and although we were initially suspicious of the concept, we're surprised at how much we love the results. Titles include "Take Five (Nicola Conte rmx)" by Roberto Roena, "O Elefante (Shh rmx)" by Ray Barretto, "Saona (Gilles Peterson & Simbad rmx)" by Noro Morales, "Plastico (Bugz In The Attic rmx)" by Willie Colon & Ruben Blades, "Morris Park (Bonde De Role rmx)" by Lenni Sesar, "I Didn't Want to Have To Do It (4 Hero rmx)" by Ralfi Pagan, "Boogaloo De Johnny (Quantic rmx)" by Johnny Pacheco, and "Mi Gente (Louie Vega EOL rmx)" by Hector Lavoe.

✨✧ Juan Calle & His Latin LantzmenMazel Tov Mis Amigos ... CD
Riverside/Idelsohn Society, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
A nice little album – despite what might be a gimmicky concept! The set offers up Latin versions of Jewish tunes – but even that's not much of a gimmick, when you consider how important the Jewish audiences were to the growth of Latin music in the New York in the 50s and 60s. From DJs like Symphony Sid, to vacationers at the Catskills, to dancers in classes at Arthur Murray on Long Island or the Palladium in Manhattan, the Jewish audiences were some of the strongest for the New York Latin acts – and it's no surprise that you get albums like this cropping up to address the situation! Calle's group is a fine Latin jazz ensemble, and they've got a clarinet in the mix on a few tracks, snaking away in an almost klezmer-like fashion over the piano/percussion grooves of the album. Players include a rock-solid batch of Latin and jazz musicians – including Charlie Palmieri on piano, Ray Barretto on congas, Willie Rodriguez on timbales, Clark Terry on trumpet, and Doc Cheatham on trumpet – plus John Cali on lute – the real name of Juan Calle, who also did all the arrangements. Ed Powell sings a bit of vocals, but most of the action here is instrumental – and very much in the best Riverside Latin mode of the time, but with a Jewish twist! Titles include "Papirossen", "Beltz Mein Shetele Betlz", "Die Greene Koseene", "Frilach A Nacht", and "Yossel Yossel". CD
