Los Ases del Ritmo – Costa Brava
Union Musical LP 053

Gisteren drong het tot me door, in al die tijd heb ik ook maar vijf van
zijn albums gepost. Eigenlijk zes want eentje gaat op naam van ‘Los
Ases del Ritmo’. Die plaat, ‘Costa Brava vol. 1’ staat op nummer tien
in de lijst meest gedownloade albums van de Global Groove. Vandaag,
lieve bezoekers, zal ik je verwennen met een tweede elpee met Los Ases
del Ritmo. De groep bestaat uit Anibal Velasquez en zijn broer José, Ani-
ceto Molina en Gabriel Raymon. Zij brengen pasebol, merengue, guaracha,
goajira, cumbia, chunga, en corrido chiqui-chá. Hoog tijd dus voor meer
Anibal Velasquez, één van de grootste muzikanten die
Colombia ooit heeft voortgebracht ..

Yesterday it became clear to me, in all those years I have only posted five
of his albums. Six to be honest because one goes under the name ‘Los Ases
del Ritmo’. That record, ‘Costa Brava vol. 1’ is on position no. 10 in our list
of most downloaded albums. Today I’ll spoil you a bit more posting another
elpee with Los Ases del Ritmo. The group exists of Anibal Velasquez, his bro-
ther José, Aniceto Molina and Gabriel Raymon. They bring pasebol,merengue,
guaracha, goajira, cumbia, chunga, and corrido chiqui-chá. In short, it is
hightime for some more Anibal Velasquez, one of
Colombia’s greatest musicians ever ..

An oldie today with the popular Sonora Dinamita. The great
Lucho Argain is also present on this one. I could not find a
year of release for this record. As far as my Spanish goes
however I think it must be one of their earlier albums.
One way or the other, we’re dealing with 12 sweet songs..

Een oudje vandaag van de populaire Sonora Dinamita. Met de
grote Lucho Argain. Het lukte me niet het jaar te achterhalen
van deze plaat. Voor zover ik het Spaans begrijp echter moet
het een van hun eerdere elpees zijn. Links of rechts om, de
liedjes zijn stuk voor stuk om van te snoepen..

Ze zijn bijna niet te vinden, de platen van Michi Sarmiento.
Extra mooi dat ik deze heb weten te bemachtigen op de
laatste beurs in Utrecht. Ik moest er wel diep voor in de
buidel tasten maar dat heb ik ervoor over hem vandaag
met jullie te kunnen delen. Uit 1973 en op Discos Fuentes.
Wel een beetje zuur dat track drie een keeertje overslaat
maar dat was helaas niet zichtbaar, het is niet anders..

They are almost impossible to find, Michi Sarmiento’s
records. Extra nice I managed to find this one at the
latest record fair in Utrecht. It didn’t come for nothing
but okay, I am glad I can now share it with you guys.
From 1973 and on Discos Fuentes, just a little sad track
three makes one small jump but that was not visible
unfortunately, something we have to deal with..

Arsenio Rodríguez – Primitivo

Arsenio Rodríguez, front

One of the key figures in latin music was this great man.
Arsenio Rodríguez is considered father of the modern afro-cuban
sound. His musical roots lay in the Congolese rituals of his
family, instilled in him by his grandfather who was a slave,
and it is said that he brought many of the toques used to
adress deities into son. He was a predigious composer –
his sones remain dominant in the repertoire – and his group,
which he expanded with first congas and later an extra trumpet,
more percussion and piano, became the most influential of the
1940’s. Rodríguez also changed the structure of son, expanding
the montuno with a descarga section of improvised solos.
Arsenio Rodríguez ( 1911 – 1970 ) was blind from age eight,
he was kicked by a horse. He was a superb tres player and one
of Cuba’s all time great bandleaders and son composers. Arsenio
grew up in a ‘solar’, a small neighbourhood community. It was his
custom to play the guitar, his neighbours would join in both
vocally and instrumentally, using sticks, pieces of chairs, boxes
or anything they could find to create a musical sound. On such
a night, someone used a cowbell as their contribution to this
primitive music and it was from this that the cowbell evolved as
part of the instrumentation of today’s Latin-American rhythm
sections. ( Rough Guide and backsleeve )
Congolese composer Grand Kalle was called the father of rumba,
he became inspired by Cuban artists like Arsenio Rodríguez, so now
we can see the circle close, afro-cuban getting round and round.
tracks like Independence cha cha and Africa Boogaloo are typical
examples, from Congo to Cuba and back,
music works miracles don’t you think..
listen to Arsenio Rodríguez,

there ? )

lo Primero Conjunto Miramar – Carruseles, Grabaciones Originales Ondina Dia Disquera Antioqueña

Conjunto Miramar, front

Okay fellow groovers, back to reality. When I first saw
this lp, I was naive and thought it had something to do
with Colombian salsa band ‘Sonora Carruseles’. And
when listening to the first track one continues to feel
a certain link with the group. However after searching
the web for it, I didn’t find anything. Listening to the lp
I got captured by surprise, as pleased as punch, “lo
Primero Conjunto Miramar” found it’s self another fan.
Original songs, no salsa but cumbias, porros, pregon,
Guaracha, son and guajira, pure sweetness to the ear.
Now I have tried to convince you before, so no more
superlatives, just get it and give it a spin..azúcar !..

Conjunto Chappotín – Perlas del Son,Areito

Conjunto Chappotín, front

Conjunto Chappottín and his Stars was founded in 1950: African
Cuban tres-guitarist, composer and bandleader, Arsenio Rodriguez,
known as el Ciego Maravilloso, or the Marvelous Blind One, had settled
in New York to recover his vision. He decided from there that his All Stars
band, which he left in Cuba during his 1948 move to New York, should be
transferred into the professional care of his first trumpetist, Felix Chappottín.
From that moment, the original Arsenio Rodriguez All Stars band was
transformed into Conjunto Chappottín y sus Estrellas. The group was Led by
Felix Chappottín with Luis (Lili) Martinez Grinan as the arranger and Miguelito
Cuni the lead singer. Under the leadership of Felix Chappottín, only to be
compared with Louis Satchmo Armstrong, the band rose to international
fame, moving and amusing dancers in different parts of the world.
( info from AfroCubaWeb )

I bought this lp from a friend who used to collect Cuban music with passion.
One day when he was in need of money, he sold me his entire collection
with the idea to buy it back some other time. Unfortunately Dirk has left
this world a couple of years ago. I am taking care of the music, keeping it
together and sharing some of it with you, like today. Hope U like.

I found that the same lp was also released with
a different cover, as shown in small picture,
don’t know which one was the original.
