CD Reviews

Awesome early Puerto Rican salsa!!
Joe Sixpack -- | Middle America | 07/09/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A wonderful collection of 1930s vocal performances by Pedro Ortiz Davila (aka "Davilita"), one of the early stars of New York City's Puerto Rican music scene. This disc presents a beautiful sampling of Davilita's work with other popular Puerto Rican musicicians, such as Grupo Victoria and Pedro Flores (who also appears on other Harlequin albums). It's also a great look at the changing styles of popular boriqueno music, from suave dance numbers to rougher-hewn acoustic bands. Apparently Davilita recorded over 3000 (!) songs -- the 26 tracks on this CD are certainly enough to whet your appetite for more!"
