Glamorous Downtempo Latin Music for a Sunday Afternoon – MAS BOLEROS No 4

Part IV of my favorite Boleros. Latin Soul both typical and progressive. Glamorous downtempo music with shades of Jazz, Soul and even Tango, propelled by desire on deep Afro-Cuban foundation as Bolero-Son.

NOVEMBER TINGLING

Expect long avenues in twilight with 80s jazz. Mr. Ach is out for a walk as a young man.

That’s what October sounds like when it feels like November. All tracks were released between 1980 and 1989, some of them I discovered in the 80s. So this mix is my first 80s compilation and could be titled “Mr. Ach is going for a walk as a young man”. Deep jazz with a hat in a way, only that I did not wear a hat then.

CUBA 1958

Just as Copernicus once kicked the earth out of the center of the universe, Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Cuban music have brought us closer to the center of the cosmos.
Cuba in the 1950s: Rumba, Conga, Danzon, Guaracha, Mambo, Cha-Cha-Cha, Charanga, Batanga, Guaguanco, Son, Montuno, Guajira, Afro, Pregón, Bembo, Bembe, Descarga, Seis Chorreao, Bolero .. Everything in motion, sometimes a big stage, sometimes a backyard ritual, at the same time rooted in the traditions of Africa and a futuristic trans-national dance floor. Music for adults, inspiration of all subsequent pop music experiments and theoretical expositions in all parts of the world.

I hope you like this hour with gems from my collection of Cuban vinyls.
