Fania All Stars

Live In Cali, Colombia 2-DVD Set
Import DVD (FM 00077-7), Released 2005;
Editor's Pick:
Back in stock!
In 1995, in the pouring rain, tens of thousands of people gathered in an outdoor colosseum in Calí, Colombia to witness one of the last great concerts of salsa royalty - the Fania All Stars. This nighttime concert was documented and previously released as a 2-CD set which, although ok, did have some sound issues and was limited in its ability to convey the essence of the Fania experience. In short, the CD cannot hold a candle to the spectacular, nearly overwhelming, performance captured on this DVD set. This multi-camera shoot will grab you by the collar you and offer the grandness of not only the individual performers, but of a body of work that, at its core, is considered by many to be the essential Latin dance music of a generation. There is a simultaneous looseness and well-crafted order to a Fania All Stars show. That these consummate pros are in total control yet know how to party like there’s no tomorrow, has never been documented better than on these two DVDs.
When Celia Cruz takes the mike for “Bemba Colora,” or Cheo for “Raton,” or Ismael Miranda for “Borinquen Tiene Montuno,” or the entire crew doing “Quitate Tu,” nothing else matters. And that moment, that flickering epiphany, is the Fania All Star trademark that is not likely to be duplicated.
With Celia Cruz, Willie Colón, Papo Lucca, Ismael Quintana, Adalberto Santiago, Bobby Valentin, Roberto Roena, Johnny Pacheco, Larry Harlow, Lewis Kahn, Cheo Feliciano, Ismael Miranda, Yomo Toro, Nicky Marrero, Alfredo De La Fé, Reynaldo Jorge, Eddie Montalvo, Andy Montañez and many others. Hosted by Izzy Sanabria.
This gem, folks, is must-have.
Very Highly Recommended. (BP, 2011-01-09)
