Ray Barretto, Mr. Hard Hands was a pioneer in the fusion of Latin Jazz, Afro-Cuban and Salsa genres. With an illustrious career spanning decades he made his mark with the Fania and West Side Latino labels. This album was originally released in 1966 and features musical styles ranging from Guajira to Guaguanco. All killer tracks from featuring an ultra-tight band of heavyweights: Orestes Vilato on timbales, Adalberto Santiago and Willie Garcia on vocals, Roberto Rodriguez on trumpet, and more stellar players. This album has long been considered a classic and is now available after a decades-long absence!
