"This is not his newest cd, but one of his best if not the best. Mr. Santa Rosa's command of his voice and tempo just makes you appreciate Salsa music. The tracks "Me volvieron hablar de ella" and "Tiene un amigo" hit the sad and romantic sides all at once. The horns rising from far and carrying on just long enough just before his "voz de Caballero" kicks in is.....Priceless. Gilberto has been around for a while and has gained the respect of every latin (and non-latin that have ever heard him), musician in the business. This Puertorican's CD is the one you will play when you are by yourself (have a cocktail and feel the goosebumps) and will always be a coversational piece at every party."
Rhytmic, beautifully arranged, melodious and inventive.

"As a newcomer to Latin American music, this one took me several listens to truly appreciate, but now it's one of my favorites. Gilberto Santa Rosa's voice is pleasantly raspy,and his phrasing is very deft. There are several different arrangers for the eleven tracks, and each succeed. My particular favorite is "Que Manera de Quererte" written by Emilio Rios and arranged by Pappo Lucca and Georgie Padilla. This is good music either for listening or dancing, as it is rhytmic without being repetitious. The percussion is especially effective on "Bendito Tiempo." This is great music to listen to while cruising down the road towards vacation, and to remind you of it on the way home. And don't worry if you don't speak Spanish--the meaning comes through clearly enough."
