Back to some electric piano love. It's been a long time since the last Rhodes compilation, so here's a banging collection of funky, jazzy, 70s latin tracks for your listening pleasure! This is also in celebration of the completion of the Mongo Santamaria discography. Anyway ... the tracklist is on the back cover above, check the previews, and hope you enjoy it.

I really enjoy your posts and have been looking forward to another volume of Latin Rhodes. My complaint is about the artwork. It looks a little fuzzy after printing. I'd like to see the resolution raised to 100 or 200 DPI.

My solution was to put low resolution pics up on my site to save storage space and use better pics in the downloads.

You're welcome TN, I guess this was kinda aimed at you northerners, as we're descending into winter here :)

Simon666 said...

Glad you're enjoying it guys.

Simon666 said...

... and Alessandro, sorry I don't have those ...had a look around and they seem to have been struck down by the Bl*ck J*zz curse , just not around.

Unda said...

YAY! Another Never Enough Rhodes mix. Thanks Simon, glad to listen to another one. Much love.

Flabbergast said...

very nice, looking forward to this.

Hey speaking of Mongo -- I still need to sift through that online discog you've worked so hard on compiling, but I noticed (well, noticed because I have a pretty nice vinyl rip I did last year, and have been sitting on and waiting to share) that the title El Pussycat has both a different cover, a different release date, and apparently some link problems.. My version looks like the one here

(I think I paid $2 for it, by the way, and not 30 Euro...) and it is definitely mid-60s boogaloo and Latin Jazz all the way. Is the other one just a late-70s reissue with a dif. cover? I can't locate the pics I took of mine to compare the track listing, at least not at the moment.

Paul said...

Contradanza. Reminds me of Alan Zavod... has anyone heard his Rhodes solo on Maynard Ferguson's version of La Fiesta (Chameleon)? Awesome player.
