Chano Pozo & Arsenio RodriguezLegendary Sessions ... CD
Tumbao (Spain), 1953. Used ... $18.99
Chano Pozo is best known as the conga player who helped Dizzy Gillespie get into his Afro Cuban bebop bag in the late 40's. Although Pozo died at a tragically young age, he left a strong mark on Latin music that still resonates today. This CD features a number of recordings that Pozo cut with Cuban guitarist Arsenio Rodriguez in the 40's when Rodriguez was visiting New York, plus a number of records that Rodriguez made on a later visit to the US. The sound is very raw, with a tight early Afro Cuban groove, and the kind of Latin jazz sound that the two players helped to establish. Tracks include "Rhumba En Swing", "Seven Seven", "Tocoloro", "Paso En Tampa", and "Tintorera Ya Llego". CD

Alfredo Rodriguez & Pedro MartinezDuologue ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2019. New Copy ... $9.99 17.99
A record that's recorded by a duo, but one that's got a much fuller sound than you might expect – thanks to the magic of overdub, and to some great production help from Quincy Jones! Alfredo Rodriguez plays piano, Fender Rhodes, and keyboards – Pedro Martinez plays percussion – and both artists sing a bit too – and the whole thing sounds a lot richer than just a keyboard and percussion album might, as the songs bristle with the energy of a small combo – mixing together elements of Latin jazz and other global elements, in a mode that's warmly soulful and sometimes funky. Titles include a nice remake of "Thriller", plus "Estamos Llegando", "Yo Volvere", "Mariposa", "Cosas Del Amor", "Duologue", "Africa", and "El Punto Cubano". CD

Arsenio Rodriguez & The Afro-Cubano SoundViva Arsenio – Arsenio Rodriguez & The Afro-Cubano Sound Of Now! ... CD
Bang, 1966. Used ... $19.99
An incredible record and very unique – cut around the same time as Arsenio's rare boogaloo album for Tico Records! Like that session, this one has a style in which Arsenio is featured in a larger group – playing with a raspy edge that really steps out in front of the fuller instruments and voices! The group's a great one – playing here with a few early Latin Soul touches, and in a way that mixes together different modes in a really unusual approach to the grooves. Arsenio's sound is still quite rootsy, but the larger backings are quite tight – and often done with a nod to more popular soul modes of the time. The whole thing was put together by producer Bert Berns, with arrangements by the great Artie Butler – and it's got a freewheeling New York groove that's as close to Latin Soul as Arsenio ever came! Includes Latin Soul versions of "Hang On Sloopy" and "La Bamba", plus the tracks "La Yuca", "Tres Marias", "Randy", "Vaya P'al Monte", and "El Elemento Del Bronx", a groovy guaguanco track! CD

Enrique RodriguezLo Que Es (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Extra Lovely, 2019. New Copy ... $14.99 20.00
A really beautiful record by young Chilean pianist Enrique Rodriguez – a set that's got little more going on than piano and keyboards, but which really makes the most of those elements! Rodriguez plays in a style that's not entirely jazz – maybe more moody instrumentals with a slight bit of rhythm in the background, but always at a gentle pace – so that the tunes have a flow that's really driven by the keys, which sound equally great, whether acoustic or electric! Some tunes glow with a soundtrack theme style, others have a deeper soul vibe – and titles include "Chao", "Estamos Bien Aqui", "Una Pared", "Mantener El Arriba", "Ambos", "Lograr Decidirnos", "Lo Que Somos", and "Ni Siquiera Se Si Quiero Encontrarte".

✨✧ Tito RodriguezMambo Madness ... LP
Tico, 1959. Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mambo Madness indeed – and a fair bit of cha cha craziness as well! The album's a simple but tremendous little set from Tito Rodriguez – a great illustration of the power he had at his early best, without any of the overdone trappings of his later records from the star years. As with many early Tio sides, the style here is highly rhythmic and very jazzy – percussion-heavy grooves in both a mambo and a cha cha mode, served up with percussion and vibes from Tito, and just a bit of vocals on some numbers. There's a warmly chromatic sound to the record that is the key Rodriguez touch –a nd titles include "Chiqui Bop", "Mambo La Libertad", "Chen Chere En Guma", "Donde Estabas Tu", "Besame La Bembita", "Mambo Manila", and the groovy "Harlem Nightmare".

✨✧ Pete RodriguezI Like It Like That (A Mi Me Gusta Asi) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Alegre/Craft, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fantastic little album of Latin Soul – a perfect example of why Pete was known as the "King Of The Boogaloo" during the 60s! The group's having a non-stop party on the album – breaking it hard with heavy piano lines, rumbling bass underneath the grooves, tight timbales, and some shouted lyrics in English that are always very catchy. The title cut, "I Like It Like That", is the sort of groover that you'll be singing for years – even after hearing it only once – and the album's filled with other great cuts, like "Pete's Madness", "Micaela", "Si Quires Bailar", "Soiy El Rey" and "3 and 1".

✨✧ RodriguezComing From Reality (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sussex/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An amazing second set from Sixto Rodriguez – recorded in the legendary Landsdowne Studios in London, with a groove that's a great extension from his debut! All of Rodriguez's best elements are in place here – his folksy guitar, personal lyrical style, and surprisingly biting approach to a variety of topics – and the London setting provides him with an even more sophisticated backdrop than before, one that creates a rich palette of sounds that takes the music in some really wonderful directions! There's a bit of strings at times, but most instrumentation is by a small combo – which includes Chris Spedding on guitar and Tony Carr on percussion – so that Rodriguez's vocals and guitar are really right up front in the mix, recorded with a brilliant balance between sharpness and compassion. Titles include "Climb Up On My Music", "Silver Words", "Heikki's Suburbia Bus Tour", "I Think Of You", "To Whom It May Concern", "Halfway Up The Stairs", and "Cause". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Alegre All StarsTe Invita ... CD
Alegre/Sonido, Early 60s. Used ... $18.99
Fantastic work by one of the greatest Latin jazz groups ever! The Alegre All Stars were heavily inspired by the Cuban Jam Sessions of the late 50s and early 60s – and the ensemble brought together some of the greatest players of the New York scene of the time – like Bobby Rodriguez, Louie Ramirez, Charlie Palmieri, Kako, and others. The group had a real talent for loosely jamming Latin jazz – and they virtually pioneered the descarga sound through their initial four albums for the Alegre label. This set features 10 tracks from those albums – including a few long jammers, and a few shorter tracks with vocals. Titles include "Perdido", "Alegre Te Invita", "El Manicero", "Yumbambe", "Sono Sono", "Estoy Buscando A Kako", and "Manteca". CD

Gema, 1964. Very Good- ... $14.99
El Gran Combo are at the height of their early power here – really romping in a pre-boogaloo mode with lots of jala-jala rhythms – upbeat grooves that are topped with lots of jazzy horns, including some especially nice saxophone lines from Hector Santos, which really deepens the sound of the set. Lyrics are all in Spanish – sung by Pellin Rodriguez and Andy Montanez – but the groove definitely shows plenty of New York touches, with a nice undercurrent of soul on many numbers. Titles include "El Jala Jala", "Ojos Chinos", "La Rareza", "Te Quiero Ver", "Campesino", and "La Cocora". LP, Vinyl record album

Pianist Roberto Fonseca seems to expand his musical vision with each new release – to a point where here, he's got this grand sense of sound, place, and history – all wrapped together in this mix of instrumental and vocal selections that draw a line between classic Havana and the contemporary scene! Roberto plays Fender Rhodes, Hammond, moog, and other keyboards in addition to acoustic piano – and the group is very heavy on percussion, and draws a lot of energy from the bass of Yandy Martinez Rodriguez too – while leaving room for Roberto's lead vocals on two thirds of the album's tracks. Titles include "Vivo", "Mambo Pa La Nina", "Ocha", "Clave", "Cadenas", "Kachuha", and "La Llamada". CD

Eightball, 1994. Used ... $4.99
Basically a group made up of members that had also recorded under the Groove Collective name, with a few missing and some other folks brought into the fold. They're under the wing of Bill Ware, who'd also played in the acclaimed straight jazz group of young lions, the Jazz Passengers – a big part of the Knitting Factory scene. He teams up with Jay Rodriguez here though, for a set with a great NY acid jazz vibe, equal parts sampled beats and live playing, with crisp production that never gets too slick, and some nice soulful vocals on a number of cuts. Nine tracks in all, including "Groove Thing", "Too Late", "On The Sand", "Sly 2" and "Sax It Up". CD

Harrison KennedyHypnotic Music (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Invictus/Demon (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
An amazing solo effort from Harrison Kennedy – a record that's quite different than his work with Chairmen Of The Board, and a set that's easily one of the most compelling albums ever issued on the Invictus Records label! The set's nice and funky at times – the heaviest expression of that early 70s Holland Dozier Holland groove – but there's also moments that have kind of a playful, offbeat mode that's almost folksy soul – hard to peg adequately in words, but touched with these acoustic elements that are quite different than Kennedy's work with the Chairmen. The oddity of the record almost puts it in Rodriguez territory – especially given the raspy charm of Harrison's vocals – and titles include "Night Comes Day Goes", "Gimme A Glass Of Water", "Hypnotic Music", "Closet Queen", and "Up The Organization".

Carmen LundyModern Ancestors ... CD
Afrasia, 2019. New Copy ... $7.99 16.99
To our ears, there's nothing like a record from Carmen Lundy – one of the few jazz singers who can hold us completely rapt over the years, and who keeps on coming up with wonderful albums like this one! Carmen's voice has always been fantastic, but in recent years she's got an even more majestic sense of her instrument – tuned here to some tunes that really continue the more powerful lyrical approach she's used over the past decade or so – with an agenda that's much larger than herself, and has righteous elements we never would have found in her earlier music! Lundy's also become quite the instrumentalist too – and also handles guitar, Fender Rhodes, and even some larger orchestrations – in a lineup that also features piano from Julius Rodriguez, bass from Curtis Lundy and Kenny Davis, and percussion from Mayra Casales. Titles include "A Time For Peace", "Burden Down Burden Down", "Jazz On TV", "Meant For Each Other", "Still", and "Affair Brazil". CD

One of the very first sessions recorded by the Latin Percussion label – a groundbreaking record that features very heavy rhythms throughout! The group's co-led by Jose Mangual and Carlos Patato Valdez – each of whom handle plenty of percussion, alongside Manny Oquendo on timbales, Milton Cardona on clave, Bobby Rodriguez on bass, and a few other percussion players as well! The sound is tight and jamming – very much in the best LP mode – recorded with a crisp edge that keeps the live, spontaneous sound of the record wonderfully fresh after all these years. One track features a bit of vocals by Ada Charbrier, but all other tunes are instrumental – and titles include "Masacote", "Guaguanco", "Bomba", "Guaguanco", "Mambo", "Shekere", and "Son Montuno".

Jason MilesBlack Magic ... CD
Ropeadope, 2019. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
Keyboardist Jason Miles has a long legacy in jazz – both as a sideman with bigger names, and as a leader on his own – but this set with his Kind Of New group may well be one of his best so far – a sweet batch of electric grooves that goes a long way towards updating older styles of keyboard funk! Miles has a wonderful way of letting the right sort of spaces fall between the notes – a vibe that takes us back to the best early work by Bobby Lyle or Rodney Franklin – and like both of those musicians, he knows that the best way into a groove is to take things easy, and let the music find itself – which it does wonderfully on the mixture of tunes included in the set. The set features work from Reggie Washington, Jay Rodriguez, and Steven Wolf – and titles include "The Other Side Of The World", "Black Magic", "Kathy's Groove", "Wolfdelic", "Kat's Eye", and "Jean Pierre".

Ratspack (Japan), 2016. Used ... $19.99
A definite New York groove from bassist Teuro Nakamura – and a set that really takes us back to some of the best American/Japanese fusion sessions of the late 70s! Like some of those classics, this one was recorded in the US, with a Japanese player in the lead – bassist Nakamura – and the sound is wonderfully smooth and soulful, with a wickedly spacious take on jazz funk – and this open groove set up by the basslines, which then allow plenty of room for the other musicians to take flight! The album features guitar from Joe Berger, Bill Washer, and William Spaceman Patterson – plus loads of sweet keyboards and Fender Rhodes from Ron Thompson, whose work on the record is almost worth the price of admission! The set also features a bit of soprano sax from Antoine Roney, and some tenor from Jay Rodriguez – and titles include "Bushman Song", "Sequoia Forest", "Sweet Romance", "Midnight Song", and "Certain Doubt".

Chano PozoRumbero Mayor – An Overview Of The Legendary Afro-Cuban Conguero That Changed Latin Music & Jazz Forever ... LP
Grosso! (Spain), 1940s. New Copy 2LP ... $34.99
A massive slice of music from percussionist Chano Pozo – best known as the guy who helped forge the mix of bebop and Latin that became known as cubop in the 40s – but also a hell of a musician in his own right too! The set brings together work from a wealth of early 78rpm singles – both cubop material that Pozo recorded with Dizzy Gillespie, James Moody, and others – plus earlier straighter Latin work, with artists from both the New York and Havana scene! There's been some great CD issues of Chano's music from the time, but the package may be the first LP set to really do things justice – and features a total of 28 tracks that all feature Chano Pozo on percussion – titles that include "El Pin Pin" by Cascarita, "Guaguina Yerabo" by Miguelito Valdes, "Paran Pan Pin" by Panchito, "No Se Que Tienes" by Olga Guillot, "Seven Seven" by Chano Pozo, "Cubana Be" by Dizzy Gillespie, "Rumba En Swing" by Chano Pozo, "Tin Tin Deo" by James Moody, "Boco Boco" by Tito Rodriguez, "Manteca" by Dizzy Gillespie, "Cometelo To" by Chano Pozo, "Llora" by Cascarita, "Nague" by Miguelito Valdes, "Amparame" by Reinaldo Valdes, "Paran Pin Pin" by Panchito Riset, and "Conga De Los Dandy" by Orquesta Hotel Nacional.

Great later work from one of the strongest instrumental voices on the Jamaican scene – trombonist Rico Rodriguez, whose horn was showcased on countless classic sessions with different singers – and on a few key albums of his own! The approach here is great – kind of back to basics, without some of the overdone ska-revival modes that you might be fearing – just simple, no-nonsense rhythms from a small combo – and lots of Rico's trombone work out front! There's a few vocal moments, but the instrument is the main focus – and titles include "Children Of Sanchez", "Fatty Fatty", "Get Up Your Foot", "Latin Expression", "Weep", "House & Family", "Lambs Bread", and "Slim & Slam".

One of Gabor Szabo's best records – a hip small combo session, featuring backup by Gary McFarland, Sadao Watanabe, Richard Davis, and Willie Rodriguez – an odd kind of lineup, but one that goes well with the offbeat grooves of the set! The overall sound has lots of touches of the McFarland Latinized rhythms of the time – but also stretches out with some of those great snakey guitar solos from Szabo – not nearly as extended or trippy here on other albums of the time, but in a really great way that makes for some tight, hip, mod little tracks! The set's one of Gabor's best from the 60s – and titles include "Flea Market", "Walk On By", "Gypsy Jam", "Gypsy '66", and "The Echo Of Love". The whole thing's kind of a compressed take on the sound of Gabor's Spellbinder album – if you know that one! CD

Cal TjaderLos Ritmos Calientes (Ritmo Caliente/Mas Ritmo Caliente) ... CD
Fantasy, 1955/1957. Used ... $7.99
A 2-in-1 Latin jazz spectacular from the mighty Cal Tjader! First up is the album Ritmo Caliente – one of Tjader's first Latin-tinged sessions for Fantasy Records – and a really wonderful batch of tracks recorded with a shifting array of very hip players! In addition to Cal's vibes, and expected Latin percussion – handled by Armando Peraza on congas and bongos – the set also features some totally slamming piano work from Eddie Cano, Manuel Duran, and Richard Wyands – each of whom get a chance at the keys on the set, really helping to bring in a range of different colors and tones. An added bonus is Jerome Richardson on flute – who plays on about half of the album's tracks – in that soulfully snaking way he virtually owned back in the 50s. Tracks are short, and filled with plenty of energy – and titles include "Ritmo Caliente", "Mambo Moderno", "Alegres Timbales", "Buhutu (Nanigo 6/8)", "Cubano Chant", "Goza", "Lamento De Hodi", "Mueve La Cintura", and "Afro Corolombo". On Mas Ritmo Caliente, Cal Tjader's working in a smoking Latin vibe throughout – and has managed to get some great extra help in his efforts! The album was mostly recorded in Chicago and New York, and these different locals seem to give the record a slightly different flavor than some of Tjader's other west coast dates from the 50s – a slightly harder Latin groove, thanks to the presence of players like Jose Chombo Silva on tenor sax, Gerald Sanfino on flute and alto, Bobby Rodriguez on bass, Mongo Santamaria on congas, Willie Bobo on timbales, and Luis Kant on percussion. Vince Guaraldi's on piano on all tracks – bringing in a nice dose of warmth next to Cal's vibes – and titles include "Mongorama", "Ritmo Africano", "Ritmo Rumba", "Tumbao", "Perdido", and "Cuco On Timbales".

Verve, 1966. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A classic collaboration between vibist Cal Tjader and Latin pianist Eddie Palmieri – a really wonderful album that bridges two different worlds of music in the 60s! Cal had always had something of a Latin bent to his music, even working for Fantasy in San Francisco a decade before – but here, teamed up with Eddie Palmieri, his music gets a great New York infusion – and one that's even a bit more contemporary than some of Tjader's previous 60s Latin efforts. Eddie's sharp-edged piano is totally great – ringing out with some especially bold tones – and other players on the set include Julian Priester and Mark Weinstein on trombones, Ismael Quintana on percussion, Bobby Rodriguez on bass, and George Castro on flute. Arrangements are by Eddie and Claus Ogerman – and titles include "Los Jibaros", "Ritmo Uni", "Picadillo", "Unidos", "El Sonido Nuevo", and "Guajira En Azul". LP, Vinyl record album

A whole new genre of disco – served up by one of the biggest club collectors in the world! Dimitri's the man who's guided us through so many other great sets of rare disco tracks over the years – and this time around, he's launching new look at the form! Cocktail Disco is a unique variation that's often heavy on orchestrations, and which sometimes has echoes of older jazz, vocal, or Latin recordings – classic influences that simmer nicely through the mix – and help deepen the sound of the already-soulful late 70s style! And although "cocktail" normally means laidback or sleepy, these tunes definitely aren't – because all tracks here are in a soaring midtempo mode or better – cuts you'd be happy to play with some of the funkier numbers on the dancefloor, and which should stand out nicely, given their unique twist. 2CD set features 21 titles that include "Summertime" by Blue Velvets, "What You Need Is My Love" by Cindy Rodriguez, "It's Got To Be Love" by Darcus, "Ocean's Apart" by Vast Majority, "Show You The Way To Go" by Charlie's Roots, "Again" by Night People, "Lady Of The Night" by Ray Martinez, "Disco Village" by J Elliot Group, "Something About You" by Moses, "Baby I Just Wanna Love You" by Jonell Allen", "Canteen" by Serenade, "Starflight" by The Band Who Fell To Earth, "Take Me With You" by Ralfi Pagan, "Never Too Late" by Ms Victoria Barnes, and "Girl From Ipanema (disco version)" by Astrud Gilberto.

Vaya, 1974. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the many great recordings that Celia and Johnny cut together during the 70s – in a really great combination that had her soulful vocals giving a new injection of energy to the Pacheco sound of the time! The result was a great blend of new styles and respectful traditionalism – one that comes off especially well on this record, which features some great work on tres by Charlie Rodriguez. Titles include the tasty groover "Quimbara", plus "Tengo El Idde", "Toro Mata", "El Tumbao Y Celia", and "Lo Tuyo Es Mental". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bunny LeeFull Up – Early Reggae Productions 1968 to 1972 ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mindblowing sounds from the great Bunny Lee – and exactly the kind of collection that makes us love the Pressure Sounds label so much! The track selection is wonderful – and most numbers are balanced in a unique space between reggae and rocksteady, and often have some crucial influences from American soul and funk as well – but they come across with a mode that's very different from more standard reggae, especially the style of the music that would be more codified a few years later. Instead, there's a really rich sense of experimentation here – as Bunny Lee and his All Stars work on instrumental tracks, or alongside other key artists like Delroy Wilson, Rico Rodriguez, Tommy McCook, U Roy, or Winston Williams. Some tunes have amazingly trippy touches – and a few points even mix in some wild moog too – and titles include "Double Attack", "Ivan Itler The Conqueror", "Scarface", "Joe Lewis", "War", "Wet Vision", "When I Get My Freedom", "Smooth & Sorts", and "Death Rides A Horse".

✨✧ Phineas NewbornPlays Harold Arlen's Music From Jamaica ... LP
RCA, 1957. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums from the early years of Phineas Newborn – a large group session from the pianist, and one with a very different feel than some of his trio sides! The music is all from the Harold Arlen musical Jamaica – but the groove is pure Newborn all the way, and a lot more soulful than anything you'd hear on Broadway! Phineas' piano somehow seems even more fluid than usual – and it's set up in a great group with really wonderful guitar work from Les Spann, who's clearly the second biggest voice on the date – plus Jerome Richardson on tenor and flute, Sahib Shihab on alto and baritone, Ernie Royal on trumpet, and Jimmy Cleveland on trombone. Willie Rodriguez and Francisco Pozo add in some great extra percussion to the tunes – further helping the groove – and titles include "For Every Fish", "Take It Slow Joe", "Pity De Sunset", "Napoleon", "Little Biscuit", "Coconut Sweet", and "Push De Button".

Singers really stand out on every number – and include Andy Montanez, Lalo Rodriguez, Tito Allen, Luigi Texidor, and Yayo El Indio – working with instrumentation from a larger group directed by trumpeter Juancito Torres, and featuring plenty of horns, percussion, and a bit of guitar! Tracks all pack a pretty mighty rhythmic punch – and titles include the funky "Regino Suarez", plus "El Cantar Del Coqui", "Aqui En Mi Pueblo", "Tu Y Yo", "Alianza De Generales", "Ciriaco Valdes", and "No Volvere".

The group is relatively small – filled with soul jazz players like Buddy Lucas, Seldon Powell, Willie Rodriguez, and Dave Bailey – and Terry's soloing is nice and tight, with a measured economical quality that works will with the tightness of the backing. Titles include "Tread Ye Lightly", "Free & Oozy", "Sweet Juke", and "Sapphire Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

Alegre, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few albums ever recorded by Vladimir Vassilieff – an obscure late 60s piano player who's best known for his groovy album The Aquarians! The record's a really wonderful set that really lives up to its title – a haunting set of Latin jazz numbers played with a hip group that includes Many Duran, Bobby Rodriguez, and the great Bobby Porcelli on alto. The groove is light and free – a blend of 60s Latin, hardbop, bossa, and more – handled with the kind of modern touches that few other Latin leaders were using at the time, save for the great Bobby Vince Paunetto. Leo Morris makes a surprising guest appearance on the groover "Baby Boo Boogaloo", and other cuts include "Suzy's Bossa Nova", "Mambito", "Camelot Cha Cha", "Mambo at the Cave", and "Mombo Moderno".

✨✧ VariousReturn Of Jazz Club – Dancefloor Classics From The Original Jazz Dance DJ ... CD
Prestige/BGP (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really classic jazz grooves from the vaults of Prestige Records – the kind of cuts that first broke big on the London scene of the 80s, at a time when diggers were setting fire to the rare groove scene too! The cuts here are proof that some of the best work doesn't need to come from completely obscure groups or super-tiny labels – as the music here is exactly the kind of work that made huge waves in the US jazz scene when first released, then went underground for many years – until later collectors and diggers brought it back to the limelight! The great thing is how many of these cuts are all acoustic – no need for electricity to make things funky – as you'll hear on tracks that include "Hiyo Silver" by Bennie Green, "Grease Monkey" by Kenny Burrell with Jack McDuff, "Mau Mau" by Art Farmer, "Mambo Inn" by Billy Taylor with Candido, "Manteca" by Red Garland, "Blue Stompin" by Hal Singer, "Spider Man" by Freddie McCoy, "Filthy McNasty" by Eddie Jefferson, "Flatjacks" by Willie Rodriguez, "Blue Gator" by Willis Jackson, and "Pedro Stroller" by Johnny Lytle.

✨✧ Johnny LytleLoop/New & Groovy ... CD
BGP (UK), 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
Killer set that combines both of Johnny's rare albums cut for the tiny Tuba label in the mid 60s! The records both have a great funky vibes sound, with lots of tight drumming, and soulful bubbling organ grooves. These are very sought after in their original pressings, and both LPs usually fetch upwards of $40 when we get them in – and they fly right out the door as soon as they hit the web. Loop is the rarer of Johnny Lytle's two albums for the obscure Tuba label from Detroit. Johnny's classic trio, with Peppy Hinnant on organ, is backed by a larger group that features Wynton Kelly on piano and Willie Rodriguez on conga. New and Groovy is very nicely stripped down - and the focus of the album is on down-and-dirty groovers, perfect for the jazzy stepper set that still digs Lytle loads! Loads of short groovy steppin jazz vibes cuts, like "The Loop", "The Man", "The Snapper", "Selim", and way way more! CD

✨✧ VariousSon Cubano NYC – Cuban Roots New York Spices 1972 to 1982 ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The rebirth of the Afro-Cuban groove on the New York scene of the 70s – great recordings in the "new traditionalist" sound of the time! After the boom of the Latin Soul sound of the late 60s, and the rise of salsa in the early 70s, there was also a "back to basics" movement within the players of the New York Latin community – a shift that stripped down the sound, reintroduced traditional instrumentation, and worked in rhythms that might have been used on older sessions, but which were slightly updated for the newer recordings. The work of that period, although strong, has often been overlooked in favor of some of the flashier sounds of the scene – and this set wonderfully corrects that fault by bringing together a great sampling of work from the traditional spectrum of the Salsoul and SAR record labels, along with the kind of notes and commitment to quality that makes the Honest Jon's reissues so great! Titles include "Son Sabroson" by Rey Roig, "Chuchillo Para La Pina Cubana" by Charlie Rodriguez, "Chocolate En C7" and "Trumpet En Montuno" by Chocolate, "Oriente" and "Tiene Sabor" by Henry Fiol, "Yo Perdi El Corazon" by Lita Branda, "Camina Y Ven Pa La Loma" by Roberto Torres, "Celosa" by Angelo Y Su Conjunto Modelo, and "Los Dos Hermanos" by Los Jimaguas.

Somerset, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Pete Terrace challenges Pete Rodriguez for the title of "King Of The Boogaloo" in this live set recorded at Chez Jose in New York! The album's got a few tracks that say boogaloo, but which aren't – but that's still ok with us, because the bulk of the set is a hard grooving batch of uptempo groovers that would make anyone proud – and the record's easily one of Pete's best from the 60s! Includes covers of "El Pito", "At The Party", and "Bang Bang" – plus Marty Sheller-penned originals like "Do The Boogaloo", "I'm Gonna Make It", "Here Comes Pete", and "No! No! No!". Pete's vibes sound mighty nice, and the pianist in the group is nice and firey! LP, Vinyl record album

The album's got more than enough propulsion to soar to the skies – with White on massive drums – working with a killer batch of musicians that includes Patrick Gleason on keyboards and electronics, Onaje Allan Gumbs on acoustic and electric piano, Jimmy Smith and Larry Young on organ, Larry Coryell and Doug Rodriguez on guitars, and Tom Harrell on flugelhorn – all working together in a razor-sharp mix of acoustic and electric elements!

Treasure Isle/Doctor Bird (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Four albums' worth of vintage ska from the Jamaican scene – presented here with a heck of a lot of bonus tracks too! These tracks are the real deal – some of the earliest tracks to be circulated under the name of the new style – and the sorts of songs that just about everyone tried to copy right off the bat, and kept on trying to match for decades more! The work all comes from the magical fingers of Duke Reid, of the Treasure Island label – and there's a fair bit of jazz in the mix too, as these groups are overflowing with talented musicians who were playing straighter jazz just a few years before. The package features the full albums Birth Of Ska, Latin Goes Ska, The Skatalite, and Don Drummond's Greatest Hits – plus 19 more bonus tracks – with work by Duke Reid's All Stars, Don Drummond, Botty & Bonny, Rico Rodriguez, Justin Hinds & The Dominoes, Owen & Leon Silvera, Eric Morris, Roland Alphonso, Clive & Naomi, The Richards Brothers, Baby Brooks, and many others. 58 tracks in all!

✨✧ Mack PorterPeace On You (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Tidal Waves, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really unique album from Mack Porter – a singer born in Ghana, but working here on the Swiss scene, where he'd landed after late 60s work in other European cities! The music is this very unusual hybrid of rock and soul, with a mixture of acoustic elements and larger orchestrations – and the kind of thoughtful, sensitive, singer-songwriter approach that puts Mack somewhere in the territory of other stand-alone artists of his generation – like Terry Callier, Bill Withers, or Rodriguez! The music here sounds nothing like those three – especially when Porter hits a bit of a Hendrix vocal vibe on one track – but it certainly has an equally heady quality. Titles include "Miles To Go", "Peace On You", "Till The Fall", "Freedom", "Sunday In Neon Lights", and "Back Home". LP, Vinyl record album
