Two greats--side-by-side
rrodrigu@manhattan.edu | New York City | 07/25/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The bolero is the pan-Hispanic love song tradition, and its repertory is well-known to all Latinos. Two great figures of this romantic tradition are Tona la Negra and, of course, Celia Cruz. Tona was popular in the 50's and 60's, while Celia is still going strong. The great advantage of this CD is that you hear the different qualities of their voices. Tona is passionate, melodic, romantic, and sensual; Celia is pure rhythm! It's not a question of who signs better; it's a matter of style. And these two radically different interpretations of bolero illustrate the vitality and versatility of this type of music, and consequently, its continued attration to the Spanish-speaking world."
