Latin Percussionist - Patato

PatatoI have to admit that I'm a real novice when it comes to Latin music. Every time I think I've figured out the genres and subgenres of Latin, I find another two or three to listen to. But, I digress. This is just a quick post about Carlos "Patato" Valdez, a Cuban percussionist that I recently found.

This is a great album, recorded when Patato was in his 70s. Amazing! Those rhythms are incredibly infectious.

Happy sounds,

Peder

New play list uploaded

It's been a while since my last post, but I have been updating the play list here and there throughout the past few months with little changes. You've probably noticed by now that I've just completely changed the play list. I've got new material from Barrie Lee Hall, Jr, who is an uncle to one of my co-residents (thanks the CD Teri!) and a fantastic band leader (Duke Ellington Orchestra) and trumpeter in his own right.

freddie_hubbard_goin_up.jpgThe play list also includes the entire Freddie Hubbard album "Goin' Up", which is a fantastic straight-ahead album, recorded in 1960. I just love Freddie's tone. I've really been listening to a great deal of his work from the early 1970s, including Red Clay, Straight Life, annd First Light.

I love that electric piano! What has happened to me? I'm just crazy for the e-piano these days, especially Bill Evans' work in that decade. Perhaps, as I purchase more 1970s jazz, it will begin appearing on the Classic Jazz Corner play list. Watch out for that in the coming months.
