Henry Fiol

Fé, Esperanza Y Caridad
CD (SAR/Guajiro 1012), Released 1990;
Produced by Roberto Torres
Arranged by Rusell "Skee" Farnsworth
Editor's Pick:
**Classics Revisited**
Fe, Esperanza y Caridad was Henry's 1980 solo debut on the SAR label, formed the previous year by Sergio Bofill, Adriano García and singer, bandleader, percussionist and composer Roberto Torres, who produced the project. And what a band?! Alfredo Valdés Jr. on piano, Alfredo "Chocolate" Armenteros on trumpet, plus Puerto Rican tres guitar virtuoso Charlie Rodríguez; with bassist Russell "Skee" Farnsworth (who'd worked with Ricardo Ray in '60s) arranging the six extended tracks. Included is Henry's sublime rendition of "Oriente", composed by one of his idols, the Cuban sonero Cheo Marquetti (1909-1967), and featuring a delicate piano solo by Valdés Jr.. Re-listening to the album reminded me of my Descarga.com interview with Sidestepper's Richard Blair in 2000, who described Fe, Esperanza y Caridad as "absolutely devastating", and went on to say: "There's an English engineer friend of mine who's a big big fan, he's not into salsa, but he played that record every day for a week, just for the sound of it. And they are as heavy as any Led Zeppelin record." Exactly. (John Child, 2004-05-28)
Description:
1990 release. With Alfredo Valdes on piano, Chocolate Armenteros on trompet. Coro: Yayo El Indio, Ramon Rodriguez, Roberto Torres.

Reviews:
"A prickly temperament and an unfashionable devotion to the classic Cuban són have made this New York-based singer/songwriter a virtually unknown quantity. But his is an idiosyncratic talent that deserves wide recognition. Check his extended version of Cheo Marquetti's 'Oriente,' and 'La Juma de Ayer'." (George De Stefano 94/95 Catalog)
