    Been getting introduced to more
    of this incredible music. It's just
    as expansive & rich as any other
    I've come across. One thing that
    has grasped me has been the
    African percussion influence in the
    coastal regional music of Colombia.

    A lot of it sounds like afro-beat,
    but in spanish, even down to the
    backing chanting vocals.

    Just tagging doggies that come to
    mind who might appreciate this as well

    That breakdown 2 minutes in was totally unexpected, and awesome.

    Since you mentioned good percussion

    Been listening to this album quite a bit lately. My favourite Afro-Cuban Jazz album. Chucho is a musical genius, and there's usually some great percussion in his songs, these are two great examples.



    I heard this song on University of Toronto radio about 10 years ago. I still love it.

    Awesome. Love the clash of
    piano & percussion. I haven't dove
    into Cuban music yet, so this will
    be a great starting point. Thanks
    doggy! Appreciate it

    I almost forgot about Paco De Lucia, my neighbour introduced me to him when we were discussing John McLaughlin one drunken evening.

    Pretty epic stuff here

    I find it fascinating that throughout the decades salsa has become this happy, party-ish but vapid music that yuppies and women like strictly because it's soooo fun to dance.

    But its roots are from the street. Willie Colon's album covers look like they come from a 90s gangsta rap album.

    This is one of my favs from that time. That trombone in the beginning goes hard as SHIT.

    That's a fucking hard cover!
    He has a sick one dressed as
    a pachuco & pointing his trombone
    like a Tommy gun. I've been
    listening to nothing but this salsa
    clasico. You could hear the struggle.

    This "Todo tiene su final" is dope.
    Killer piano breakdown half way
    in. Thanks dude. Hook a doggy
    up with some more from the
    genre if/when you got some time.
    I've been on a tear with this stuff.

    Playing a bit of "catch up".
    That ray Barretto is REAL nice.
    Imma look more into him. That
    bass in the Prado track is bumping!

    Thanks for the contributions Beardo.

    Oh man, if you're just starting out, the Willie Colon/Hector Lavoe combos are absolute musts.

    Look up:

    La Murga de Panama
    El Dia de mi Suerte
    Che Che Cole

    Then Hector Lavoe's solo stuff:

    El Cantante (10 minutes of epicness)
    El Periodico de Ayer
    Triste y Vacia
    Juanito Alimaña
    Songoro Consongo
    El Rey de la Puntualidad
    Ella Mintio
    Mi Gente
    Aguanile

    IMO, the crown jewel of Willie Colon's solo work is "Idilio"

    I'm going to cheat a little. John Zorn is from New York and he's not latino, but he did a soundtrack for a documentary called "El General" with some beautiful mellow Latin tunes.

    "Callen Radcliffe Tjader, Jr., known as Cal Tjader, was an American Latin jazz musician, known as the most successful non-Latino Latin musician".





    Les Baxter was an American from Texas
    Go to 29:05 for some good percussion



    "After becoming well known as an arranger and composer for swing bands in the 1940s, he developed his own style of world music-influenced easy listening music, known as exotica, during the 1950s and 1960s." That style he developed uses lots of bongo's and percussion
