The most intricately woven salsa I've heard yet
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In my opinion, the best salsa has a rich blend of intricately woven brass, harmonied vocals, soloist, percussion, keys and bass. You can have all these instruments and be in tune and in beat and have great lyrics but if they are not woven together properly, it can be quite ordinary. Well, Jose Alberto's, "Tributo a Machito", is by no means just another salsa CD. It accomplishes an amazing weave of music that is rarely heard. Turn on this CD and listen for the delightful way the vocals and brass weave in and out of the musical limelight-and ohh that bass. This album stands out with its flagship song (title #1) leading the way. Gentlemen, grab your beautiful latina chiquita and dance until 5AM while this album is on. MY BIO: I play violin, piano, guitar, sing, compose and play in a salsa band.....I critique this music from a musician's point of view, from a music listener's point of view, and from a salsa dancer's point of view."
Jose Alberto's best album to date

(5 out of 5 stars)

"A truly excellent release from Jose Alberto! Created in tribute to salsa veteran Machito, it is certainly a tribute also to Jose Alberto's maturity and variety in style resulting in his best album to date. The dance tempo is just right- neither slow nor too fast to keep up and miss the enjoyment of music. I am giving the album 5 stars for the really memorable and melodic songs- all 10 of them are good, my favourite being "Sarabanda". In this line "Oye La Banda", "La Rumbantella", "Tributo al Bravo" all make this album a top choice for salsa dancers and music fans alike!"
Since I got this CD, I listen to it/dance to it non-stop!!

"I'd never heard of El Canario or Machito before (but then I'm somewhat new to salsa music). Anyway, one day recently I came upon a Latin Music show on the radio. Heard a particular song for which I HAD to know who sang it, so I called the station and they told me it was from this particular CD. Few hours later, I heard ANOTHER awesome song. Called again, and the DJ recognized me and said "you called earlier right?... it is from the same CD..." So with that I said "well, I obviously really like this guy... I guess I'll have to buy the CD."

I am SO glad I did. Not only are the rhythms excellent, but the musical arrangements are very sophisticated. This is now my favorite salsa CD!!!"
