La Solucion

Refreshing: Roberto Rivera Y Su Orquesta La Solucion, La Original De Puerto Rico
CD (Eddie Ramos Productions 67751), Released 2012;
Produced by Roberto Rivera
Editor's Pick:
Just in! Orquesta la Solucion of Puerto Rico, founded in 1975 by Roberto Rivera, is the popular salsa group that spawned many great singers like Esteban "Tato Rico" Ramirez and Benny Santiago, with the most famous being the late Frankie Ruiz who started with the band when he was only 19. The crew's Mayaguez sound is typified by a rootsy heavy trombone feel pioneered by the likes of Mon Rivera. Roberto Rivera has stated that they were the first to utilize three trombones. The band was championed by icons like Rubén Blades, Celia Cruz and Héctor Lavoe with whom they performed for and with.
Refreshing hits the streets just as La Solucion turns 38 years, and the track Son 38 celebrates just that. Perez has been at the helm the entire time, so it suffices to say that this guy has been around the block a few times ...he knows what he's doing. His tracks are thoroughly danceable, have catchy hooks and a superb coro section. This production features the singer Jorge Nicolay plus guest singers Megui Rivera and Yamin Elias. Check out, also, Rosa Elena, the bomba-esque Felicidades and the flute-tinged El Amuleto. All gems. Highly Recommended. (BP, 2012-06-21)
