The salsa king's ealry Afro-Cuban jazz sessions!!!
Aaron | 10/22/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These two lp's from early in Barretto's career, are perhaphs the finest sessions he ever led. The sidemen all are on FIRE!!! These heated sessions feature mambos, cha cha's(or what we now call salsa). Whatever you want to call it Afro-Cuban jazz, salsa dancing music, or pachanga music, it is party music for dancing, as well as legit jazz for lsitening. exotic percussions by Barretto, and great jazz gorn solos. Entrancing, enhcanting, and fun music. ESSENTIAL salsa and Latin jazz."
Two of his best albums

"This may be Ray Barrettos "obra maestra" (masterpiece). "Cocinando Suave", the version of "Summertime", and everything else on this CD transcends time and genre."
