A little bit goes a long way in my opinion. A bit like R&B. Usually the same ones each time. The problem comes when a DJ decides to play half a dozen following each other.

Latin beats have allways been a part of it all as long as I can remember , more valid in my view than a lot of blue eyed soul that gets played 

Loved this for yonks   Ed

I got this somewhere - A really atmospheric tune, sounds as if it could be used in a film (Maybe a Guy Richie one) :D

Defo Latin! :wink:

First record I came across that got plays back in late 60's along with "Soul Sauce"

Then early to mid 70's

This is a great version. Album only I think.

I was wandering why he classed The Majestics as Latin cause I can't hear any Latin in it?

I rarely listen to the latin stuff, but I've always thought this was a better version than the original.

As a bonus the flip is nice too. Both very breezy summer songs.

Some years ago -besides soul and funk- I was interested in latin music. I liked Joe Cuba, Pete Rodriguez and others but for me the most original and creative artist of the genre was Johnny Colon :

A really enjoyable thread.  Some great tunes mentioned . Here's two huge favourites with me now for many years from Johnny Colon and Ralfi Pagan.

Perhaps the reason it was described as latin is because they were Mexicans from east LA. I can hear a lot of latin in that record. Even that opening brass known to every man and his dog on the northern scene is played in a key and style associated with latin music not black american.

Similar vein to this, that latin Tijuana Brass influence is in a lot of soul, Tempests, Tomangoes spring immediately to mind but there are loads, like this one.

A Latin - Soul - Jazz musician I have been herding many hours, Louie Ramirez. This track "Barrio Nuevo" sounds alike as Salsoul orchestra and his vibes like the ones by Vincent Montana (in fact, he made an entire album of Philly Soul covers, Bad Luck, Do It Anyway You Wanna, etc.):

Hi, The YanK

 

In fact, "Salsoul Records" started as a reformulation of the previous label Mericana Records owned by the same Kayre Brothers (they have worked with the most important "salsa" and "latin" artists in the NY scene) and the first realises on the label Salsoul were by Grupo Folclórico Experimental Neoyorquino, Manny Oquendo & Libre, Joe Bataan and Cándido Camero. Some tracks by the Salsoul Orchestra as "Ritzy Mambo" sounds totally like a Fania or Cotique record. There's also some productions by Vincent Montana (RIP) from these same years as the "Cross Over" album by Fania All - Stars or his more "recently" collaborations with Tito Puente or La India:

Hi Jose-

            Thanks for the info> My early Salsoul releases don't mention anything about Mericana

they just show "A division of Caytronics- a Cayre Industries Company". This release of "La Botella"

on Epic does show the connection though.

I knows that the Kayre Brothers were the owners of Mericana Records because this is explained in the linner notes of the Charly Records / Salsoul double CD "Salsoul Essentials Vol. 2". I have recently acquired some other Charly / salsoul CD's by acts like Double Exposure, Eddie Holman and Cándido's "Anthology". The instrumental "La Botella" by Joe Bataan features the great sax player David Sanborn when he was very young and little known (and I read that is uncredited!). In the late 70's-first 80's the only vynils I have by Salsoul were "Let It Snow" by Bunny Sigler (includes a masterpiece of fine soul, Marvin Gaye soundalike's "Since The Day I First Saw You") and Salsoul Orchestra "Magic Journey" with the jazzy and latin-feel "Runnaway".

Now that I've re-listened to "La Botella" that sax  part does sound like David Sanborn!

Lets not forget the Tex- mex connection to our various associated scenes as well. In fact the 45 by Joe Jama 'My life' on the optimum logo was one of the most wanted and biggest northern tracks several years back. With groups like Sunny and the sunliners 'Should I take you home' on Keylock , Dimas111 ' I won't love you again' on Clown being firm favorites with the low- rider Scene. While it could be argued that in many respects the latin influence on the tracks mentioned is minimal, it is without doubt a hybrid of mexican and black american music.

Definately a Latin influence but not something I would class as strictly Latin as it is aimed at a broader market.  Same with many mentioned that have a Latin influence but not strictly Latin.

Sorry mate, but Majestics is definitely latin.  I would categorise it as "chicano soul"....the horns are so latin that they're nearly mariachi! 

 

This is chicano too (one of my all time favourite northern soul records).  I always used to ask Keith Money to play it at the 100 club, because I knew he'd have it in his play box.

Along with Boogaloo Assasins which has been a fav since release and got so much attention as a then unknown/new release these two also work well for me when played out ...
