Angel Canales, who once threw all of his music into the ocean, is one of Latin music's unsung heroes. A great vocalist with a very distinctive style, he has remained an enigma with virtually no airplay. This recording is a classic. His band smokes. Highly recommended.
- BP

"Released by Angel Canales in 1979 on his own label. Canales was as outspoken in the press about the injustices in the Latin music scene as he was flamboyant on stage. The progressive arrangments, mostly written by trumpeter Steve Guttman, were ahead of their time and the flamenco-like tremolo in Angel's voice gave him the moniker, 'El Differente.' This recording features his working band in top form. Check out the classic son, 'Soy del Monte,' with its trad/rad approach. The hippified merengue approach to the title cut, a perfect blend of jazz and Latin elements, showcases the creativity of this unsung hero and his group.
