CD Reviews

Long time out of market, but back again at last!!!!

"This live CD -an 'all-stars'reunion of every musician who played with the Barreto Orchestra- can be justly described as a landmark in salsa and latin jazz music. Why? I will give you the chance to listen to it without any further comments, besides than that by the time that this album was recorded, the Barreto orchestra was THE orchestra, and that before this CD remastering, this album was one of the white-hot items in Europe and in the US. Everyone that knew about salsa music and about this CD were willing to pay anything -and I really mean it- to have a copy of it, not an original, but a copy of it (If you happened to be a serious collector of salsa music, and you didn't have this album, you were destined to experiment eternal shame between your friends). So, are you in latin jazz? Have you heard Barreto before, and got mesmerized by his unbelievable sense of rythmn and conga drum playing? Haven't heard anything about latin jazz, but are willing to explore? You love salsa music? Are you a Barreto fan already, but this CD is the last one to complete your CD collection of this orchestra? Well, here's the CD then. Give it a chance-you will not repent it. Better yet, you will not stop playing it for at least a month. Like the idea? So check this out. Enjoy."

"This is a must have cd. I waited for years for this to be issued on cd. This is one of the greatest live performances ever recorded. The first song that catches your attention is "Ban Ban quere," with Ruben Blades on lead vocals. This is New York Salsa at its best. Then comes "Guarare," with Tito Gomez on lead vocals. What really stands out in this one is Alejandro "EL Negro" Vivar on trumpet. He throws down an unbelievable solo. Finally comes "Que Viva la Musica," in this song everyone throws down on some vocals and then Tito Puente and Oretes Vilato both get down on the timbales. If you don't have this cd, buy it!"
Catchy, well executed, and inspiring music!

"Barreto's orchestra was a force back in the 70's. The arrangements here are unbelievable and these live versions beat the originals, which is not a common thing to happen. Being a fan of Jazz, Funk, and Salsa, I was pleased by the diversity and eclectic repertoire of the band. This is a record that you can listen from start to finish and love every minute of it. "Vaya" is a red hot, funky tune to kick things off, followed by the energetic "Ahora Si Que Vamo a Gozar". The next track is, to me, the absolute best of the cd and that is a stunning version of the Salsa classic "Ban Ban Quere" sung by Ruben Blades, who although has a bit of problems with his voice, still manages to deliver a memorable performance. "Guarare" is the next Salsa tune before a couple of terrific jazzy, funky numbers called "Slo Flo" and "Cocinando Suave". To cap things off, an all star reunion takes place to perform an extended version of "Que Viva La Musica" off Barretto's classic album of the same name. Don't miss the timbales solos by Tito Puente and Orestes Vilato. Highly recommended."
