"Something New" b​/​w "Nitty Boo Boo"

by The Nitty Gritty Sextet




En 1967 en el Spanish Harlem los all stars de la música latina se reúnen en el estudio para grabar dos bombazos.
La sesión captura el sonido del momento, la fusión de la música latina, mambo y son cubano con el rhythm & blues y el soul.
A pesar del interés del sello RCA en publicarlos, nunca vieron la luz. Hasta ahora.

Rocafort Records presenta por primera vez en vinilo "Something New" y "Nitty Boo Boo" dos cortes firmados por "The Nitty Gritty Sextet", nombre tras el que se esconden los mejores músicos de la escena latina de Nueva York.


It’s 1967 in Spanish Harlem and the NY Latin Music All Stars gather in the studio to record a bunch of tracks.
The session captures the sound of the time, the fusion between latin music, mambo and son cubano with rhythm & blues and soul.
Despite the interest of RCA in publishing them, many of these tracks never saw the light of day. Until now.

Rocafort Records presents, for the first time on vinyl, "Something New" and "Nitty Boo Boo", two cuts penned by "The Nitty Gritty Sextet", an alias for the best musicians of the New York Latin scene. The musicians are:

Louie Ramirez: Vibes
Ricardo Ray: Piano
Jimmy Sabater: Timbales
Bobby Marin: Coro
Willie Torres: Lead Vocals
Tito Puente: Percussion
Charlie Palmieri: Tamborine
Bobby Rodriguez: Bass
Ozzie Torrens: Conga

PLEASE NOTE we made a mistake when we released the 45 mentioning Joe Cuba as the congero player. We've been confirmed he wasn't part of the recording session. We apologize for the misinformation.
