CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Gonzalo Roig & His OrchestraIn A Cuban Garden ... LP
RCA, 1958. Very Good ... $5.99
The music on this album is very orchestral, almost soundtrack-like, with the strings dominating in sweeping dramatic arrangements. Traditional Cuban elements do come through but this is certainly not a dance record. Tracks include "Fantasia Cubana", "Mosaico Cubano", "El ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Beny MoreAsi Es Beny ... LP
Discuba, Early 60s. Very Good ... $24.99
Beny More's a hell of a singer – one of the strongest voices of his generation, and an artist who can sound especially strong on an upbeat number! More's got a way of stretching out and inflecting his vocals that was a huge inspiration on the Latin Soul and salsa generations to come – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Orquesta FlamboyanSe Viste De Gala ... LP
Cotique, Early 70s. Very Good ... $39.99
A very weird record on Cotique – but with some nice moments. The band clearly has a nutty approach to their own craft, as is evidenced by the fact that they're all wearing tuxedos on the cover – which the notes claim is in response to "remarks about our way of dressing"! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

TNT OrchestraTogether ... LP
Disco International, 1977. Sealed ... $19.99
Surprisingly nice album that has Tito Ramos and Tony Rojas reuniting in a crackling session of 70s salsa that mixes English and Spanish lyrics, both with the kind of soul that the band was famous for in the 60s. Tracks include "Hello My Love", "Los TNT", "La Mujer ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fania, 1972. Used ... $29.99
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 ... read more CD

Tico, 1958. Very Good ... $11.99
By the end of the 50s, Machito was a king of the Latin scene – and had an ability to both groove hard, and lay down sophisticated arrangements that were a lot stronger than those of other throwaway cha cha cha groups. This album's one of his best from the era – and it includes lots of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Perez turns his popular Latin sound to some even more popular 50s compositions – and even if it's not enough to swing the kids at the jukebox on the cover of the record, there's still some nice lively Latiny moments.

Perez was always willing to alter his groove to fit the times and the mood – and this set is one of his first forays into the groovier sound that would dominate most of his 60s work for other labels. The core sound is still in that "ugh!" mode of earlier RCA sides, but there's also ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fiesta, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $6.99
We've never known anything about these guys other than their few albums for the Fiesta label, but they're a great little combo with a heavy piano sound! The record is really nice – spare piano, bass, and percussion – laid out over cha cha rhythms that are very to the point, and never ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fantasy, Early 60s/1973. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
2 of Ray Barretto's earliest albums, both recorded for the Riverside label at the start of his career! Latino has an approach to Latin jazz that's certainly informed by the charanga sound of the New York scene in the early 60s – but one that's also opened up a bit more to new ideas – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $14.99
A very tasty little set from this 60s Mexican combo – a lively rhythmic group with lots of bass and percussion at the bottom of their groove, topped off by male harmony vocals on most numbers! There's some really jazzy piano that sets a mood that makes the album differ from other Latin sides ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fania, 1976. Used ... $11.99
A killer of a mid 70s album from Hector Lavoe – recording here as a solo act after his split from the Willie Colon group, but still with strong backings and musical supervision from Willie himself! The style here is very similar to the last few albums Lavoe recorded with Colon – a ... read more CD

Hector Lavoe's vocals are wrapped tightly and beautifully here in Willie Colon production – and the album's one of the classics from the pair recorded at the height of Lavoe's solo career! The sound is tight and dynamic, but never too over the top – and although Lavoe's vocals are ... read more CD

Soulful Mongo – 2 60s soul tracks, redone with a sweet Latin finish! "Son Of A Preacher Man" grooves nice and slow – a very nice sax solo snaking around the rhythms!
