Salsa: Un Homenaje A El Gran Combo DVD
DVD (Banco Popular/Selecto-Hits BPEGC2010), Released 2010;
Editor's Pick:
Ok, folks, get ready for some major salsa! This production, backed by Banco Popular, is, as the title indicates, a tribute to the iconic mega salsa band; Puerto Rico's own El Gran Combo. The band itself is present, performing shining interpretations of their signature tracks like Achilipú and A Mí Me Gusta Mi Pueblo, but the truly cool stuff here is the interpretations of their material by the likes of Domingo Quiñones, Ismael Miranda, José Alberto "El Canario," La India, Tito Rojas, Issac Delgado, Michael Stuart, Luisito Carrion, Willie Colón, NG2, Carolina La O and others. Wow. You heard right, folks, the royal carpet was rolled out for this project, and some of these tracks are slammin'. Now it's this stuff, directed by Isidro Infante, that offers unexpected moments of pure salsa greatness.
Highly Recommended.

“With this new production, we pay a well-deserved tribute to the University of Salsa, which is what this iconic group is called. Our mission is to bring joy through music. It’s not a documentary, but it is a project that shows this Salsa institution and the many who appreciate them doing what they love the most, playing music,” said Richard L. Carrión, president and Chief Executive Officer of Popular. This new musical offering showcases artists such as Edgar Daniel, NG-2, Carolina La O, La India, Willie Colón, Domingo Quiñones, Issac Delgado, Luisito Carrión, Tito Rojas, Michael Stuart, José Alberto “El Canario,” the Symphony Orchestra from the Puerto Rico Conservatory of Music featuring Roselín Pabón, and El Gran Combo, among others. Isidro Infante was in charge of the music production..." (BP, 2010-12-06)
