Nitty Gritty SextetNitty Gritty Sextet ... LP
Rocafort (Spain), Late 60s. New Copy ... $24.99 28.99
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".

Biel SolsonaI (purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
Rocafort (France), 2023. New Copy ... $22.99 26.99
A jazz pianist from the Barcelona scene, but one who's open to a host of other modes too – especially when he moves from keyboards instead of acoustic piano – which really opens things up to all sorts of wonderful sonic possibilities! The group's just a trio – with Ferran Puertas on bass and Eudald Font on drums – but the use of other keyboards, sometimes next to acoustic piano as well, really widens the sound and opens up the record far past piano trio jazz. There's definitely a few great groovers on the set, but the record's also got the sensitivity of a jazz record too – on titles that include "Lluna", "Mes A Prop", "Perspectiva", "Blau", "Terra", "Com Un Pingui", and "Sunday Disco Dawn".

VariousCumbia Sabrosa 2 – Sonidero Bangers From The Discos Tropical Vaults (3 x 7 inch single set) ... 7-inch
Discos Fuentes/Rocafort (UK), Late 1960s/Early 1970s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A short but great dive into the catalog of Tropical Records – one of the smaller indie labels during the glory days of Colombian music, but a company who served up grooves that were every bit as great as music on its bigger rival Discos Fuentes! As with better-known Colombian cuts from the time, there's a great criss-crossing of modes going on here – elements borrowed from the New York Latin scene at points, with some influence from Cuba too – but interwoven with rootsier elements from up in the hills, and some tropical touches from the coastal areas – all of which makes for a wonderful approach to the grooves! DJ Bongohead selected the cuts, and does a great job of serving up surprises along the way – in a set list that includes "Cumbia Gua Gua" by Cuarteto Del Monaco, "La Reina Y La Cumbia" by Super Combo Los Platinos, "Funeral Del Labrador" by Pacho Galan, "Cumbia Sabanera" by Orquesta Jose Ramon Herrera, and the cuts "Sabor De Gaita" and "El Nacimento De La Cumbia" by Andres Landero Y Su Conjunto. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousPiconema – East African Hits On The Colombian Coast ... LP
Rocafort (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A really revelatory collection – one that showcases a West African influence on sounds in Colombia – in a way that's almost a further shift of the way that Afro-Cuban sounds had an impact on Congolese and other rhythmic styles on the other side of the Atlantic! The music often features guitar lines lifted from a highlife tradition, mixed with rhythms that are a bit more straightforward – in some examples of the benga style in action, but blended with a more diverse array of sounds as the set moves on! The package is very well-researched, and is overflowing with work we'd never have heard otherwise – titles that include "Bi Sophia No 1" by Maroon Commandos, "Ateka" by Issa Juma & Waanyka, "Diabanza" by Orchestre Shika Shika, "Safari" by Viva Makale, "Trouble (part 1)" by La Mangelepa, "Wakumbuke Wazai" by Les Kilimambogo, and "Safi" by Lawi Somona. LP, Vinyl record album
