Celia Cruz and Johnny Pacheco join forces with vocalist Justo Betancourt and pianist Papo Lucca – the latter of whom was making plenty big waves in music with Sonora Poncena at the time! Pacheco's the leader of the group on flute and percussion, but Lucca's piano has plenty of force in the set too – and the instrumentation also features some rootsier percussion and tres, which helps it avoid the too-slick sound you might expect. Celia and Justo sing, and titles include "Ahora Si", "Reina Rumba", "Se Que Tu", "Besito De Coco", and "Yerbero Moderno".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Solid State, 1969. Very Good Gatefold
Stone lost Latin funk!
