✨✧ Ismael QuintanaIsmael Quintana ... CD
Vaya, 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning 70s album from the great Ismael Quintana – a singer who first rose to fame with Eddie Palmieri in the 60s, and who maybe gets an even greater sound on this solo set! Quintana's got one of the most expressive styles of the New York scene – a way of inflecting his notes to convey rich emotion, but without ever going too far over the top – almost more influenced by the great European singers of the generation before, instead of some of the Latin soul artists of his scene – but with a vibe that's surprisingly lean and effective throughout. The album's overflowing with instrumental talent, too – including Papo Lucca and Mark Dimond on piano, Barry Rogers on trombone, Luis Perico Ortiz on trumpet, Bobby Valentin on bass, and Nicky Marrero on timbales – and titles include "Mi Debilidad", "Mai Biandita", "Traigo La Llave", "No Lo Dejes Asi", and "La Blusita Colora".
