Fania All Stars

Cross Over
CD (Sony/Red 750725), Released 1979; Re-Issued 1999
Editor's Pick:
The first half has some of the best salsa to come out of the late '70s. Complex and diverse arrangements and really great vocalizations. Some of the best musicians of that era were participants. It rocks. The second half of this album, simply put, is pure coked-up disco. Go figure. Part of a suite of four crossover Fania All Stars albums that Columbia Records released in the mid-late '70s fusing disco, salsa and elements of jazz as well. The batch consisted of Delicate and Jumpy (1976), Rhythm Machine (1977), Spanish Fever (1978) and Cross Over (1979). This one featured Johnny Pacheco, Celia Cruz, Roberto Roena, Papo Lucca, Ruben Blades, Louie Ramirez, Sal Cuevas, Nicky Marrero, Lewis Kahn, Tito Allen and many others. Recommended. (BP, 2009-05-12)
