Totico Y Sus Rumberos
CD (Montuno 515), Re-Issued 1992
Produced by Rene Lopez
"One of my favorite Latin New York albums. You have to hear the guaguancó version of the doo-wop number 'What's Your Name?' to believe it." (Ned Sublette 94/95 Catalog)
"Recorded in New York City, this is probably the best produced rumba CD available. Each performance was obviously well rehearsed. One bonus is the addition of Andy Gonzalez on acoustic bass. Bass is not a typical instrument of rumba of course, but Mr. Gonzalez plays in a manner so much 'in the feel' that his contribution seems right at home." (David Peñalosa 94/95 Catalog)
