Jazz Picante

Jazz In My Rice & Beans brings us latin jazz goodies from the 80's. We start the set from Concord's Picante label that signed Cal Tjader & Tito Puente who was now focusing on Jazz rather than dance music. Pancho Sanchez was Cal's last conguero before he passed away and started his Latin Jazz group with that label. Cuban jazz musicians were starting to make some waves and with some arriving into New York with plenty of cats awaiting to work with them. Like Paquito D'Rivera, Ignacio Berroa, Daniel Ponce, & Puntilla who found work with the Nuyorican Jazz scene that was picking up after Latin musicians were starting to explore their love of jazz within a Afro-Caribbean context. They also started releasing their own albums and growing within the influence of working with various great musicians from different genres. This mix also spins some heavy sides from Cuba as Jazz was also being explored by a range of musicians such as pianists Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Hilario Duran, & Emiliano Salvador. Irakere's albums were now being released internationally as German & Japanese labels recorded them in their studios as Irakere were now touring worldwide. Which lead to Paquito deflecting as he was a crucial member of that group along with Chucho Valdes. Todos Estrellas is a project from members of that group - Carlos Averhoff, German Velazco & Jose Luis Cortes before he formed NG La Banda. Jazz vibes player Bobby Hutcherson's cut is from a West Coast recording with some Latin heavyweights on percussion- Francisco Aguabella on congas & Orestes Vilato on timbales. We end the set with a Miles Davis classic from a live recording of Jerry Gonzalez & The Fort Apache Band's off their album Obatalá. As the late drummer Steve Berrios from that band noted that the change during this time was that before Latin Jazz was mostly played in styles such as mambos or montuno base rhythms and during this time they were now playing mostly in rumba clave rather than son clave. Steve was part of that Fort Apache Band that had evolved from musicians going back decades within musicians involved in both folkloric and salsa music creating experimental projects like Grupo Folklorico Y Experimental Nuevayorquino. Lead by Jerry Gonzalez on trumpet and congas along with his brother Andy Gonzalez on bass they released the classic "Rumba Para Monk" in 1989 that took Thelonious Monk's compositions and saw the relation how the rumba clave fit in naturally. Things were starting to heat up and Latin Jazz was just beginning to create it's own market during this decade. We lost not to long ago pianist Hilton Ruiz who was the perfect example of what was being stated - that they were musicians deeply rooted in the many Jazz traditions and that they were simply a new accent in that line but they were also bringing in many other elements from their cultures and actually bringing Africa as the source into the music. These were the fermenting years and already bearing some fruit. Enjoy!

Hector Lavoe Showcase 1968-1983

Joséito's Hideaway presents the great sonero Hector Lavoe who should need no introduction here. His sides with Willie Colon and the productions with Willie when Hector went solo. Willie would basically give him the band and with help with Ruben Blades contributing, but when able Hector could show he could produce some great albums. Most of these tracks are well known world wide but we selected some sides of tasty paino solos that you don't hear hardly in today's salsa. As well as their reunion album of ’83 when styles were changing again to more sleek latin funk. Los pianistas son Mark Dimond, Joe "Profesor" Torres and Gilberto "El Pulpo" Colon. ¡Disfruta!

1 Fania All-Stars - Mi Gente
2 Willie Colon - Sonero Mayor
3 Willie Colon - Guajiron
4 Willie Colon - Te Conozco
5 Willie Colon - Pirana
6 Hector Lavoe - Vamos A Reir Un Poco
7 Hector Lavoe - El Todopoderoso
8 Hector Lavoe - Bandolera
9 Hector Lavoe - Periodico De Ayer
10 Hector Lavoe - Ya 'Ta Cansa
11 Willie Colon & Hector Lavoe - Triste Y Vacia
12 Hector Lavoe - El Cantante
