My renewed passion for salsa continues daily.
Finally got a chance to see El Cantante with Marc Anthony & J.Lo on DVD this week. It’s the story of Hector Lavoe. The music is great! Get the CD or check out the video.
Got turned on to Cortijo y Su Combo today from a friend and been checking out some of his songs via iTunes. He was popular in the 50s and 60s and incorporated the plena and bomba rhythms of Puerto Rico into his music.
Found that Andy Montañez was in his band in the 70s. He released an album called Salsaton in 2006, where he merged salsa with reggaeton that is very good. Check out Se Le Ve.
All for now!
