When I first heard this music—often, it was at live shows in clubs located in the Village in NY. I began to realize that though much of it is about joy and dancing, there are plenty of songs that express a deep melancholy, while still musically insisting that we dance. To me this was profound—the "illness" and it's cure came in the same package! What other medium can be two apparently opposite things at once?

This playlist could be much much longer but here's a taste of some favorites that span the 50s, 60s, and 70s—the sound ranges from small acoustic ensembles to massive big bands—and they are all about the groove. That's the late great Celia Cruz above—the Queen.
