Canuco | New York City | 10/12/2006

"This recording is for the dancers, Edwin Bonilla's unique style, sound and rhythmic puntos are all over this cd. This music contained in this recording covers, rumba, guaguanco, cha, cha cha, son montunos and all of it is done with.........."negrura musical".

Bonilla who grew up during Fania's heyday, pulls out all the stops. He injects passages of Ray Barretto's, Cocinando in one section and out of nowehere he slips in some Pete El Conde Rodriguez coros in another. Bonilla employs heavy use of traditional Cuban soneos here with great effect. All the selections have top notch arrangements in the classic hard Fania style. Bonilla is extremely talented and has listened closely and learned well from the masters.

His understanding of so many musical forms and compositional structures of Puerto Rican and Cuban music is amazing and he puts it all together here for you. One could talk endlessly about Pa' la Calle because much can be said about Bonilla's music. This recording has so many details, some more obvious than others that discovering them is both an immense pleasure as it is a true schooling. A gotta get!!!......."yo tengo...........azuquita en la cintura..."

Slamming Cuban style dance music. Awesome if you love great

"I love anything that has Edwin Bonilla's name on it. I am Cuban and I know great Cuban music and he definately knows how to jam. Must buy this cd and the previous album as well (Soy La Candela)."
