Sexteto Borinquen – El Rey del tres
cantan Ignacio y Mario Hernández
Ansonia 1974

sexteto-borinquen-front

The brothers Mario and Ignacio Hernández take care of the
vocal parts but Mario is the one making the sound in this
group. His skills on the tres are magnificent. Listen to Sexteto
Borinquen from 1974 and original from Puerto Rico but released
on the Ansonia label from New york. In general I am no lover of
bolero but the way these guys play it, sweet stuff..

Dit zijn de jongens van Sexteto Borinquen, Mario Hernández
en zijn broer Ignacio doen de vokalen. De magnifieke skills
van Mario en zijn tres maken de sound naar mijn mening.
Uit 1974 en origineel uit Puerto Rico maar uitgebracht op
Ansonia uit New York. Over het algemeen ben ik geen
liefhebber van bolero maar zo als deze jongens het
spelen, heerlijk hoor..

Baranoa – Various Artists
Discos Fuentes

Baranoa, voorkant

Discos Fuentes heeft in de loop der jaren heel wat verzamel albums
geproduceerd en niet altijd even origineel in de keuze van nummers.
Ook nu komen er weer wat langs die we al eerder gezien hebben. De
pret zal dit evenwel niet drukken, voor wie het niet wist zal het niet
opvallen. ‘Baranoa’ is er eentje om in te lijsten, een collectie dikke
dansplaatjes die je feestje zeker tot een succes maken..

Discos Fuentes made quite a lot of collectors over the years and
not always very original in choice of tracks. This time we also find
some songs we’ve seen before but still I’m quite sure that will not
spoil the fun. For those who didn’t know it shall not be obvious.
In short, ‘Baranoa’ is a collector with a bunch of dance hits
that will certainly make your party a succes..

Dolcey Gutierrez y su Conjunto Callejero
El Perro Cantante y Otros Exitos
Tropical LPT-1018

Dolcey Gutierrez, front

Write his name in our search-bar and find the one album
by his hand we already had. Today’s lp is one in various styles,
from cumbia to cumbión, guaracha, pasaje and such. It bursts
of percussional beats on pots and pans, no just joking but the
tambó is very hot on this album and one song is happier than
the other. I can’t seem to get enough of this sound, how
’bout you ? If anyone should know a year of release,
please do not hesitate and leave us a message.
Meantime give it a spin and enjoy..

Jimmy Pedrozo con Franklin Ariza vol. 2
Paso la Vida Pensando, Discos Tropical 1985

Jimmy Pedrozo, front

In 1986 Globestyle released the album ‘Fiesta Vallenata’, part of
the series ‘Accordions that shook the world’. it contains a few
songs that captured me from the very start. Lo mas sabroso
by Jimmy Pedrozo & Franklin Ariza struck me like lightning.
I had never heard such music before and it was more or less
the beginning of my search for more. The lp is available here.

Other songs that hit me instantly were the other two Jimmy
pedrozo songs and ‘India Matea’ by Miguel Duran. I’m still on
the look out to find the album containing that song. Yesterday
my buddy Sanjay payed me a visit and a big surprise came
along with him. After 30 years finally I found volume 2 of Jimmy
Pedrozo & Franklin Ariza. In fact, Sanjay is the man that helped
me searching and he found it in Bogota. What a special moment
when listening to it first time. The song ‘Lo mas sabroso’ must be
on volume 1 so the search continues but for now we are so lucky
to be able to listen to “Paso la vida pensando” by Jimmy Pedrozo
con Franklin Ariza y su Conjunto, hope U like..

Fuentes label

afrosound of colombia vol. 2

One of my friends gave me a present that made me very
happy. It is volume 2 of “The Afrosound of Colombia” which
appeared on Vampi Soul recently ( small pic ). It contains
songs by various artists of Colombian origin, all great stuff.
Track #4 of the compi is a song that comes from this here
album by Peregoyo y su Combo Vacaná. It’s called ‘Sabor
de Vacaná’. I was quite sure I posted it already quite some
time ago but just maybe I’m mistaking. One way or the
other, it is about time I bring you this absolute treasure
you would not want to miss. Peregoyo’s music is
something different, styles like currulao, abozao
chocoano, aguabajo I never heard anybody else
play. Bomba, porro cumbia, porro, descarga,
guaracha and son montuno are more
familiar to us. Get it, spread it,
listen and enjoy !

Sonora Curro, front

Albums like this are hard to find over here
in the Netherlands ? We are so lucky to have the
guys in our network that bring home these rare lp’s from
Colombia. Rufo Garrido and José Pianeta Pitalua are the
guys that lead this Orquesta. It remains a mystery why
Colombians keep using these B-models at the sleeves
of wonderful albums like this one.
I found some footage to help you get an other
impression, watch & listen..

Lo Mejor de La Sonora del Caribe
Delujo 1962 ?

La Sonora del Caribe, front

Not long ago we had an lp by Alfredo Gutierrez on which
Lucho Argain ( Lucho Perez ) was performing. Another group
that Lucho used to sing and compose for is this one. La Sonora
del Caribe was founded in 1951 by Chavistad Cesar Pompeyo.
They had a string of records through the sixties and seventies,
the one we have here is probably from 1962 and contains 12
songs of which the brothers Cesar and Alfredo Pompeyo
said; “We never sounded like this before, the songs on
this lp can set any of our fans on fire on any moment
of the day..” Well, let’s see what happens,
get it & spread it as usual..
