"Alfredo Sadel, the Venezuelan crooner, if he lived today would surpass Andrea Boccelli in the beauty and poetry of his lyrics and the incredible poignancy present in his voice. His voice is the quintessential embodiment of romance. When he sings "Traicion" it evokes the same cathartic qualities that are in Verdi arias from RIGOLETTO or TRAVIATA. To embrace Sadel's music is to merge for a moment with an era of innocence and purity; to experience a sense of intense joy mingled with deep heartache; a yearning for what was and, perhaps, still can be. His "Una Lagrima" is so crystalline, so deeply poetic that evokes an immediate feeling of euphoria. You are instantly transported to another world. "Congoja" is a unique gem. Once Sadel is rediscovered he is sure to appear on movie soundtracks and be appreciated with the international volume he deserves, even if posthumously."
