Orlando Poleo

ˇCúrate!
Import CD (Cacao Musica 350053), Released 2008;
Editor's Pick:
Poleo, a conguero from Venezuela comes out with his fourth recording, and it’s a beast of a salsa project. The conguero has spent years in Paris, fronting a band from all over the place; Curate takes him back to Venezuela, and joins him up with Changuito and "El Negro" Hernandez. Oscar D’Leon sings a bit too, and the whole thing is hard salsa, with an international overlay, glittering with bits from Cuba, Puerto Rico and Venezuela. In that sense the project is futuristic, suggesting that the Caribbean is a diaspora. There are elements of bata drumming, and good singing, and fantastic arrangements for the horns and the rhythm section; the Venezuelan arranger Alfredo Naranjo helps out. The rhythm section breaks up time beautifully, and the whole project just swings and swings and you want it to last all night. Another great recording from the Venezuelan/New York label Cacao.
Highly Recommended. (Peter Watrous, 2008-02-21)
