'New York Descargas'

(SLI CD3M9)


'The Cuban Descarga, after being given birth in Havana by such jazz luminaries as Cachao Lopez, Peruchin, Nino Rivera, was fostered in New York by producer Al Santiago. It was he who produced The Salsa All Stars sessions (making up the first 5 Descargas presented on this release) by bringing together the cream of New York Latin musicians, including special guests such as the legendary Cachao, to jam. These sessions went on to influence many others to do likewise thus defining the direction of 'salsa' music in the sixties and seventies. With such musicians as Charlie Palmieri, Cachao, Louie Ramirez, Kako, Puchi Boulong, and the orquestras of Willie Rodriguez, Raphie Martinez and Joe Cotto this release is easily the best of Latin music New York had to offer.'
