Estrellas De Chocolate – Guaguanco A Todos Los Barrios

CD (Item 601280) Antilla, Mid 60s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.70 6

Tight trumpet and lively rhythms – an overlooked killer from the legendary Chocolate! The set's got a nice mix of roots and 60s New York modes – a bit of a sparkle on the trumpets, but plenty of rough edges on the rhythms – all sewn together by soulful vocals from Filberto, Lahera, and Balmaseda! The brass never gets in the way of the vocals at all – and often, the three singers intertwine nicely – almost harmonizing as they glide along with the grooves – on a set of tunes that includes "Fania", "Que Piensas", "Los Caminantes", "El Kikikiriki", "Mi Fanfarron", and "Macho Cimarron".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
