Subway Salsa: The Montuno Records Story 2-CD Set (plus 29 Page Booklet)
Import CD (Vampi Soul CD128), Released 2012;
Editor's Pick:
The shop Record Mart, one of Latin New York's most important historic musical landmarks, served as the home base for Montuno Records, a small but important independent label started by Al Santiago and Jesse Moskowitz in the 1970s. This collection samples the recordings from Montuno's catalogue that exemplify danceable Afro-Antillean music, from Nuyorican salsa to Haitian compas, Latin jazz to traditional Cuban genres as well as several interesting hybrids incorporating funk, doo wop and Brazilian sounds. Includes tracks by key artists such as Airto Moreira, Manny Oquendo y Libre, Son de La Loma, Totico y sus Rumberos, Lou Pérez. Comprehensive liner notes by Pablo Yglesias aka DJ Bongohead, including an in-depth interview with Jesse Moskowitz, plus original LP artwork and many unseen pictures.
