Marc Anthony

El Cantante: Music From And Inspired By The Original Motion Picture
CD (Sony Norte 711824), Released 2007;
Produced by Sergio George
Editor's Pick:
Yes, the movie is just around the corner and Lavoe-mania — or at least the marketing — intensifies. Here are inspired interpretations of classic Héctor Lavoe material for the upcoming, highly anticipated, film of Lavoe's life staring Marc Anthony and Jennifer López. Produced by Sergio George (also on piano here), the music features heavy hitters like Rauz Agraz, Marc Quiñones, Bobby Allende, Reynaldo Jorge and Luis Quintero. Mr. Anthony did his homework, and does a highly credible job here, straddling the difficult line between interpretation and imitation. On the whole, he is victorious: the music is highly satisfying, with enough subtlety and nuance that make it very much worth the while. Very finely produced by Sergio George: lavish, but not over-the-top. Also participating are some legends that performed with Lavoe on the original tracks: Jose Mangual Jr., Milton Cardona and Yomo Toro. Includes the bonus track "Toma de Mi": a previous unreleased song written by Julio Reyes Copello and Nelly Furtado and sung by Jennifer López.
Highly Recommended. (BP, 2007-07-22)
