Con Salsa Y Sabor

LP (Item 494648) Cotique/Fania, 1977 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 6

A late date for the Cotique label – but a cooker of a set from the time when the imprint was one of the standout sources for salsa on the New York scene! Charlie Palmieri's united here with legendary Panamanian singer Menique – in a batch of tracks that has all the lively energy of Charlie's better-known albums from the 70s, but which is much more obscure overall! Charlie produced, and plays piano and a bit of percussion – and all lead vocals are by Menique, often with a slightly playful feel that clearly reflects the joy he and Charlie had in the studio putting the set together. Other players include Roy Roman and Lou Laurita on trumpets, Keith O'Quinn and Tom Malone on trombone, and Bobby Nelson on saxes – and titles include "Con Salsa Y Sabor", "El Amante", "Mi Tierra Lejana", "De Panama A Borinquen", "Tributo A Pedro Flores", and "Remordimiento". (NOTE: vinyl has a pressing flaw that makes the first track on each side tough to play through. The rest is fine.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Roulette, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
