JUKEBOX MAMBO [Rumba And Afro-Latin Accented Rhythm & Blues '49-'60]

Jukebox Mambo: Rumba and Afro-Latin Accented Rhythm & Blues 1949-1960 was compiled by DJ Liam Large. This is the cat who dug crates to assemble Jazzman's previous Jukebox Jam set of vintage jumpers, swing, and blues. This comp explores a very particular kind of jukebox recording that existed primarily in the middle part of the 20th century and showcased music that has simply vanished -- in this form anyway -- on North American shores. The period began the same year Tito Puente nailed his first hit single ("Pa' los Rumberos") and brought the mambo to the mainstream, but given these recordings, it was clearly flourishing even on the margins before that; an underground era that made direct connections between Afro-Cuban and Latin music, American R&B and jazz. 
While many jazz fans are aware of historic recordings like Afro-Cubop by Machito, which featured Howard McGhee on trumpet, or his recordings with Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker during the height of the bop era, these sides are more obscure, and focus more deeply on employing the "Latin tinge" in dance music. Since these records were made for jukeboxes and, by association, for dancers, they were dismissed -- at best -- or completely ignored by jazz purists. (They have issues anyway and always have.) 
Check out set-opener "Ojai" by Joe Lutcher, which marries hard-swinging big band to Latin percussion, skittering, low-end beats and rich harmonies. Danny Cobb's "My Isabella" may have a killer R&B vocal, but dig how the bongos and timbales ride atop even the horn section. Gerald Wilson's "Mambo Mexicana" gets right inside the contrasting time signatures between a sprinting mambo groove, and bebop's furious tempi, all the while arraying the horns with a rich, timbral palette that walks the line between Mexican folk and North American swing melodies. Another highlight is Dave Bartholomew's "Shrimp & Gumbo," with its cowbell, claves, and wailing New Orleans' R&B vocal. The tune's rhythms walk a tightrope between Cuban mambo and Caribbean calypso infused with the blues. All of these tunes are deep groovers. DJ Liam Large dug deep, got his hands dirty, and came out with a jewel; it's one of the finest archival collections of 2012. [Thom Jurek]

THE SCORPIONS - Rem!nd [1964-1966]

This ain't no heavy metal band from Germany [God forbid!] but 60’s beat combo from Manchester, England. They proved far more successful in Holland than in their home country, and are often believed to be a ’Nederbeat’ band alongside The Outsiders and Q65, all falling into a category of so-called ’freakbeat’, a term invented two decades later to describe a certain type of wild, raw-sounding beat music.

First heard 'em on superfine garage/beat comp. Trans-World Punk Rave-Up! Vol.1 with frantic "Just Like Me" and now here they are with solid retrospective of their 60's recordings. Mostly upbeat covers of classics by Chuck Berry, Little Richard and others, with touch of Downliners Sect style. Rip It Up!

EL INDIO - The 7th Wave [Video]

Cool surfin' sounds from France:

"El Indio is a French band formed in June 2013 by Yann, Yanal and Thomas.
From the first guitar chords, El Indio plunges you into a wild world influenced by an electric rockabilly that makes no compromises but explodes in a savage atmosphere. A flood of shrill riffs in the pure tradition of Surf music, carried by a modern and powerful bass/drums duo. All the tracks are played in one breath, leading you in a fantasy which combines Surf and Western atmospheres with the violence and decorum of Tarantino's films."

JACKIE LEE WAUKEEN COCHRAN - Swamp Fox [1978] Vinyl Rip!!!

You're pretty much familiar with Jackie Lee Cochran's 50's tune "Georgia Lee Brown" [covered by The Cramps] from BORN BAD comp. but his best years were 70's, when he began recording for Rollin' Rock label, for which he delivered two fine r-billy slabs, "Swamp Fox" (1978) and "Rockabilly Legend" (1980). 
Here you gotta deal with his cool original rockers as Swamp Fox, Riverside Jump, C'mon Over In The Clover, Hip Shakin' Mama and tearjerker ballad Drugstore Valentine as well as interesting cover of Hoochie Koochie Man. With Ray Campi on bass & drums and Jimmie Lee Maslon on piano. Rare stuff, Dig!!!

THE ROUTES - Instrumentals [2012]

"THE ROUTES released an album on the fantastic GROOVIE RECORDS, from Portugal. A full INSTRUMENTAL album, a super fox on bass and a animal on drums, with the new Jeff Beck on guitars.
That is RAW WILD and OUT OF CONTROL guitar instrumentals with sometimes an EXOTIC touch as in “Bossa Hossa Nova”, in “Shove-it” or in the beautiful “Yeti Spaghetti” and SURF instrumentals like “Luck Of The Devil” or the SMASHER “Hang Eleven”.
This album is a super INSTRO KILLER! If you like The Shadows only, it may not be your cup of tea… but if you live in the gutter and drink booze instead of water, this album will be the HOLY GRAIL FOR ALL YOU SURF PUNKS OUT THERE!" 
Reverend Beat-Man (Master Of Desaster)
