Frankie Dante & Orquesta Flamboyan – Dante Presidente


If Frankie Dante was president, there would be no armed forces, wars would end, and the kids would come back home, where they belong.

Taxes would be lowered, and that money would be used for the benefit of the community. And on top of that, a raise for the musicians who work so hard for so little money.

Frankie Dante for president!

USA, 1972.

Presidente Dante


Larry Harlow, el judío maravilloso


(este va para josh # 2, el judío maravilloso)

Amidst all the Nuyorican heavy hitters in the salsa scene of the 70s, it’s too easy to overlook the smiley white guy with a jewfro. If you did, go pick up this album now! I swear, I don’t even know what track to post.

Wampo by Orchestra Harlow


I especially recommend this album if, like me, you’re a salsero or a jazzero who never really managed to get into latin jazz. It’s hard to find such musicianship and such arrangements and (most importantly) such guateque in the same place!
