Felix Morales and his orchestra Capri
Salsa Records 1972

Felix Morales, voorkant

Felix Morales, piano

Je kunt mij beter nooit te serieus nemen hoor. Ik loop hier ook
maar een beetje te dollen met wie er maar gevoelig voor is. Ik
meen het wel als ik zeg verbreed je horizon en luister ook eens
naar muziek waarvan je eerst denkt, dat is niks voor mij. Neem
nou deze Felix Morales en zijn Orchestra Capri, een club muzi-
kanten waarvan ik zeg, die snappen het. Alles in balans, niets te
veel of te weinig. Met Ismael Quintana, Adalberto Santiago, Vitin
Aviles en Pete ‘Conde’ Rodriguez slechts in het achtergrond koortje.
Dukie Gonzalez doet de lead vocalen, Charlie Rodriguez op de tres,
ik noem er zomaar een paar. schitterende arrangementen, niet te
missen dit spul. En pietsie achtergrond geluiden maar net
niet te veel gelukkig, pak het en geniet ervan zoals ik..

Better don’t take me too serious folks, I’m just fooling around with
whoever wants to be fooled around with. I do mean it when I say
broaden your horizon, without wanting to hurt anybody’s feeling.
Take this album of Felix Morales and his Orchestra Capri, a bunch
of musicians who knew what they were doing. Everything is in
perfect balance, nothing too much or too little. Ismael Quintana,
Adalberto Santiago, Vitin Aviles en Pete ‘Conde’ Rodriguez just
being background vocals. Dukie Gonzalez taking care of the lead
vocals, Charlie Rodrigues on tres, just naming a few. astonishing
arrangements, don’t miss. Shame about a little background noise
on this fine record, but not too much, enjoy listening..

Eddie Palmieri y su Conjunto ‘la Perfecta’El Molestoso, Alegre Records 1963

Eddie Palmieri, front

This is the second lp by latin pianist Eddie Palmieri and his group
‘La Perfecta’. They were the originators of a sound called ‘trombanga’,
introducing two trombones and a flute instead of trumpets. This contributed
a lot to their early sixties succes in the New York latin scene. Later it was
also used by artists such as Willie Colon and Manny Oquendo among others.
The vocals on this 1963 album are taken care of by Ismael Quintana. Enjoy..

Ramito, front, cd size

Flor Morales Ramos or in short Ramito is one of the
interpreters of traditional style Jibaro. El Cantor de la Montaña
is back at the GG with a sweet album. Aguinaldo, Seis,
Plena, Mariandá, Mapayé are typical Puerto Rican music styles,
that the great Ramito brought us like no other, check it yourself.
P.S., B-side gets a bit false towards the end due to lurching grooves.
