Jimmy Saa

Golpe Original
Import CD (Fuentes 11689), Released 2007;
Editor's Pick:
What separates singer and percussionist Jimmy Saa's salsa from the rest is his ability to manage superlative arrangements, killer instrumentation and crown it with his impeccable delivery. Saa, who has worked with high caliber bands like La Octava Dimensión, La Suprema Corte, Yuri Buenaventura and Grupo Niche, has learned how to harness his power and release it at optimum moments. His extended "Intro" is so well crafted and chock full of swing that you just know that you're in for an extraordinary ride. Listen to the highly charged salsa "Mi Tierra" with it's porro nuance — you can feel the boil about to surface throughout this gem. This is modern salsa at it's finest. It doesn't get much better than this. "Mujer Colibri" is almost too good to be a pop salsa number. Perfect danceclub material. Saa, very much a man of Colombia, brushes the indigenous flavors of his country into the nooks and crannies of his songs. And on Golpe Original he goes even further by incorporating his "Mosaico Folclore De Pacifico" — a modern take on roots material. As bonus, Saa includes three stunning tracks ("Saa Libre," "Tempestad," " La Primera Dama") that originally appeared on his debut release Tempestad, now out of print. DJ Alert.
