Willie Colon and Ruben Blades - Canciones Del Solar De Los Aburridos

114904066753.jpg.5c1d151bc44a20f10dd8a71daee450f0.jpg

I'm not a Spanish speaker and a lot of the appeal of Ruben Blades is therefore possibly lost on me. I find I have the same reaction to Blades records as I do to later Bob Marley in Reggae: whatever it is that was responsible for their crossover successes in their respective genres is probably also what I am least interested in those genres. 

But at least this record has some very catchy tunes that I can enjoy, and a good focus on chunky horns. It's just a funky fun record, with a conscious, but one that doesn't over-load it.

Duke Ellington “Fresh Up” Lob/Solid Records Japan cd
(I think this is a post-Duke Mercer Ellington led session with a very prominent electric bass guitar and interesting re-arrangements)

Celia Cruz Y La Sonora Ponceña – La CeibaR-2483009-1520724232-9989.jpg.da896165cb491ce17a66a21eb0fb7bc8.jpg

Listening to Hommy last night got me in the mood for some more Celia Cruz, so this was the soundtrack to a rainsoaked trip down the Essex Road to buy a Christmas tree.

I was in rain soaked Essex Road too, no Salsa or Xmas tree though

🤓🌲🤓 .... makes me think of Willie Colon "Asalto Navideno" (Fania) 👹 ....

Another one I've just been listening to.

I think Celia wins out. She always does. It is not a fair fight.

Just off Essex Road, Hunter's Arms in Southgate Road. M-in-L's local so easy for her. Nice place, good veggie Sunday roast and non veggie menu looked ok. Lots of millennials and younger, we raised average age considerably. Looked kid friendly too.

Mulled cider a hit

The Hunter S?

Standard Sunday evening last-night-before-school pint of Guinness place, for me. 

In summer, reliably assured a spot by the bins in the sunshine chatting to the mad elder locals who still go there no matter what happens. Lots of happy memories there.

Right .... btw love the hilarious cover art of the Colon platter ....

Colon might have had the best run of cover art of any artist.
