Jorge Villanueva And Zone Salsa

Asi Ha Sido
Import CD (Zone Salsa 39562), Released 2012;
Editor's Pick:
Excellent, straight-ahead, highly danceable, salsa from San Juan, Puerto Rico. Villanueva and his conjunto have made some powerful salsa, late-night club style. I can see this band just getting started at 2 am. The band, the platonic ideal of a salsa group (piano, bass, trumpet, congas, bongo and timbal) create a sound bigger than their parts suggest. With half of the tracks composed by Gino Melenez (the singer-songwriter who has worked with El Sindicato de la Salsa, Truco y Zaperoko, Bobby Valentin, Cano Estremera, Rafu Warner, Lalo Rodríguez and others), it's no wonder. With pianist Javier Quintero, bassist Julio C. Badillo, percussionists Omar Hernández, Rigoberto Díaz, Ricardo Currás and others. Highly Recommended. (BP, 2012-03-14)
