    For me, I love Un Otra Vez from the 'Chaquito Magic' album - builds up into a frenzy of skronky sax, piano hammering, trumpet tumult, all lubricated nicely with yelps, cuica abuse, organ stabs and some castinet clatter.


    great recommendation, just found one of these, and there's lots to enjoy besides that track. the sleeve photo looks very familiar - is there another LP with a different view of the same "party" - maybe Ray McVay or a dodgy hammond one?

    Whoever staged that 'danceclub' photo session must have got their money's worth. Pics appear on LPs all over.

    I also really like the version of This Guy's In Love With You on that album - I was looking for it for about 20 years after hearing Charlie Chester play it on Radio 2 some time in the 90s.

    That's one I don't have- maybe because the cover doesn't inspire confidence. I see it also has 'Cherokee' on it which you would imagine has to be good.

    Speaking of original covers I like this alternate cover for Latin Favourites although is that a woman, or a man?

    Yep, I'd pull that from a $1 bin quickly enough.

    That is a textbook description of me.

    Got this one recently off the marvellous Benicio Del Toffo, during one of his freebie rounds. It sounds like there are elephants and tigers in the room.

    I only recall having seen one in either name here. Inevitably, it was AMfAS, the local edition. It was in the 'electronic' section of the shop in question.

    "Jaguar" is my 'case in point' track to illustrate the idea of 'music for sophisticated people going places'. That being how I justify hogging the CD player on any car journey of significant length. "A Face in the Clouds" probably features too.

    In fairness to JG there is his super 'Detectives' LP although I think he must have been in a studio next to Chaquito at the time, and nicked those charts out of his bag when his back was turned.

Can't find YouTube, but there's an Amazon snippet. You can just pick out that piano! Killer track and well worth the 49p you will find it on 7" for.

    There's another snippet on Discogs: https://s.discogs.com/sell/audio/138559546.mp3
    Yes, that's great, plus even I could play the piano part.

    Yes, excellent- but one side a lot better than the other.

    a lot of his LPs are just under the name "Gregory" as if he's some great conductor or bandleader, which always looks a bit funny to me, with it being a first name as well.
