4.70 6

Puerto Rican salsa from Zaperoko – a group who weave together strands of traditional rhythms into a sweet new groove! The album's got a rock-solid feel right from the start – the mix of tradition and contemporary energy that makes some of these 80s Montuno sessions so great – with a depth of feeling that's far more than you might expect from the record's slightly cheesy cover. Lead vocals are from Frankie Rodriguez, who has an especially heartfelt feel on some numbers – and the group is quite heavy on percussion, which really steps out and jams on some of the best tunes. Titles include "El Zaperoko", "Azucar Con Aji", "La Olla", "Sigan La Clave", "No Quedo Ni El Gato", and "Se Lo Que Es Rumba".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
