Ruben Blades & Boca LivreParceiros ... CD
Ruben Blades, 2022. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
Ruben Blades is way more than just a superstar in Latin music – over the decades, he's become a key global figure, and one with much diversity in his work – as you'll hear on this great collaboration with the Brazilian quartet Boca Livre! Boca Livre have a warm harmony vocal style that goes back to bossa groups of the 60s, but which is served up with a more contemporary vibe – and the mix of their sound and Ruben's strong lead is really wonderful here – on a set of tracks that even includes a number of Portuguese tunes next to the Spanish language numbers you'd expect! Titles include "Sin Tu Carino", "Juana Mayo", "Pedro Navaja", "Vida", "Caminando", "Buscando Guayaba", and "Dime" – some of which are titles on the related Pasieros album, but done in a different language here!

✨✧ Ruben Blades & Boca LivrePaserios ... CD
Ruben Blades, 2022. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very different album than you might expect from the legendary Ruben Blades – a wonderful collaboration with the Brazilian group Boca Livre – done in a style that's quite a change from the salsa that Ruben's given us over the decades! That majestic Blades vocal sound is still out front in the mix – but gets warm support from the harmonies of the Brazilian quartet – who soar along with the grooves laid down by arranger Mauricio Maestro – graced with lots of nice keyboard lines, and guitar work from Ze Renato! Titles include "Juana Mayo", "Sin Tu Carino", "Dime", "Pedro Navaja", "Aguacero", and "Adan Garcia". CD

✨✧ Conrad HerwigLatin Side Of Charles Mingus ... CD
Savant, 2022. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
Maybe one of the most unique efforts in the "Latin Side" series from trombonist Conrad Herwig – as the combination of Latin rhythms and the music of Charles Mingus isn't one that we can easily imagine – yet one that sounds really wonderful as things come together on the album! Herwig always has a way of bringing new depth and vision to the work of key jazz composers – and although other efforts are in more familiar territory for the tunes, here the music really takes flight with all these new colors and inflections – as the leader blows alongside Randy Brecker and Alex Sipiagin on trumpets, Bill O'Connell on piano and Fender Rhodes, and Craig Handy on tenor, flute, and bass clarinet! There's a bit of congas on the album too, Ruben Blades provides narration on a remake of "Don't Let It Happen Here" – and other titles include "Gunslinging Bird", "Duke Ellington's Sound Of Love", "Better Get Hit In Your Soul", "All The Things You Could Be Now", "Goodbye Porkpie Hat", and "Boogie Stop Shuffle".

Marcus MillerRenaissance ... CD
Concord, 2012. Used ... $4.99
Excellent work from Marcus Miller – the kind of soul-drenched, bass-led set that's made him a favorite for years! There's a tightness here that almost takes us back to the feel of a Stanley Clarke set from the 70s – a right on the money groove you'll hear right from the start – with more than enough bite in the basslines, and a sound that's never too smooth to make the album lose its groove. The set features guest work from Sean Jones on trumpet – plus a bit of vocals from Dr John, Gretchen Parlatto, and Ruben Blades – but overall, Miller's clearly the star attraction here, as you'll hear on cuts that include "Detroit", "Redemption", "Slippin Into Darkness", "Jekyll & Hude", "Revelation", and a great cover of Weldon Irvine's "Mr Clean". CD

Public Enemy, EU & OthersDo The Right Thing – Soundtrack ... CD
Motown, 1989. Used ... $4.99
The classic soundtrack to Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing – lead, of course, by Public Enemy's "Fight The Power" – and beyond that is a pretty wonderful, and not always as intense cross-section of some of the finer urban soul and New Jack Swing, circa '89, breezy vocal-centric R&B, a touch of Latin and Afro-Carribbean pop. The Bed-Stuy melting pot bubbles over to tragic consequences in the film, but the diverse soundtrack is plenty harmonious, and sounds fresh to this day. Includes "My Fantasy" by Teddy Riley featuring Guy, "Never Explain Love" by Al Jarreau, "Party Hearty" by EU, "Tu Y Yo" by Ruben Blades, "Can't Stand It" by Steel Pulse and "Don't Shoot Me" by Take 6. CD

✨✧ VariousLatin Lounge – San Juan ... CD
Fania, 1960s/1970s. Used ... $14.99
A jazzier set than usual from Fania Records – a collection of mostly-instrumental tracks from the rich catalog of its many Latin labels! The focus here is on the spirit of San Juan – laid out in grooves that have plenty of Puerto Rican influences, but which were mostly recorded on the New York scene in the 70s. A fair number of the tracks are longish, and titles include "Son Con Cuero" by Ray Barretto, "Caminando" by Eddie Palmieri, "Puerto Rico/Adoracion" by Fania All Stars, "Pa Borinquen" by Tito Puente, "Perdido" by Alegre All Stars, "Coco" by Charlie Palmieri, "No Me Hagas Sufrir" by Eddie Palmieri, and "Juan Pachanga" by Ruben Blades.
