Verve’s New Latin Jazz CDs

In June Verve released four Latin-tinged reissues, including Dave Pike’s Manhattan Latin and Candido Camero’s Candido. The discs-which also include a Machito album never before released on CD and a 1968 collaboration between “Patato” and “Totico” of Buena Vista Social Club fame-come in digipacks that reproduce the look and feel of the original vinyl LPs. Additionally, each disc comes with a fold-out reproduction of the album’s back cover and is painted with a reproduction of the album’s original label-for example, Candido Camero’s Candido (pictured) first came out on ABC, thus the reissue CD features the colorful, Möbius-strip ABC logo of yesteryear on its face. Here’s some info on each release:
