Lebron Brothers

4+1+1 Asunto De Familia: Homenaje En Vida A Pablo Lebrón - Live In Colombia DVD
DVD (Exclusivo 002), Released 2007;
Editor's Pick:
Wow! What a great live performance. This fine quality, multi-camera production of the veteran salsa band sports both superb sound and a detailed picture. The main singers for the event, Frankie Vázquez and Virgilio Hurtado do an exemplary job. But surprises were in store. There is a *seriously* extended version of "Salsa y Control" that has to be seen to believed. It's a piece of spontaneous salsa history that features not only singers Vázquez and Hurtado, but also the great Tito Nieves, Cheo Andujar, Kim De Los Santos and, pulled right out of the audience, Yuri Buenaventura. This track goes on forever, and that's not long enough: it truly embodies the very spirit of the genre. The singers, in true sonero style, take turns improvising in a manner that is rarely seen these days. I tell ya, people, there was a sense of destiny on that stage that night. The energy emanating from these guys was palpable, and made me fall in love with salsa all over again.
The concert was held in celebration of Pablo Lebron, whose health appears to be failing. He suffered a heart attack in the early eighties and semi retired from the band. Towards the end of the show, there is a completely heartbreaking rendition of "Regressa a Mi" as sung by the teary-eyed patriarch from his wheelchair. I felt my own heart sink watching this.
But the show is no tear-jerker: It's a thoroughly smoking set and, by far, the best Lebron Brothers DVD to date. In fact, it's clearly one of the best salsa performance DVDs of the year — a must-have for any collector. This one, folks, is...
Very Highly Recommended. (BP, 2007-12-24)
Ha quedada plasmado en esta producion el verdadero amor y sentimiento que Los Hermanos Lebrón sienten por su público, pr la salsa y en especial por su hermano Pablo Lebrón.
El contraste de la alegria y el profundo sentimiento que se desarolla en esta noche. Estoy seguro despartaran recuerdos profundos que le harán llorar.
Le creacion de este DVD produce mes de diez lágrimas para todos los que tomamos parte en el y ahora lo queremos compartir con los salseros del mundo entero.
