Nayibe La Gitana

Con Salsa & Melao
CD (West Side Records 11209), Released 2012;
Editor's Pick:
Con Salsa y Melao Maria Nayibe Mera fires up compositions by Tito Gómez, Tite Curet Alonso (with a live version of Pura Teatro, the song made famous by La Lupe), Henry Montalvo, Lolita De LA Colina and others. She also does a fine rendition of Mani Picao, the José Calvo Menendez composition that became a big hit for Tito Puente. Produced by J.R. De Jesús (who also arranged most of the tunes) with the help of Ray Castro (Conjunto Clasico) and Colombia's José Estrada, a/k/a Fruko, and his Tesos. For this session, a crew of highly respected players were called upon: Rubén Rodríguez and Máximo Rodríguez on bass, timbaleros Harry Adorno and Carlos Ortiz, conguero Benny Arroyo, trumpeters Richie Viruet and Miguel Rodriguez, coroistas José Mangual Jr, Ray Castro, David Millan, Tony Cruz and many other musicians. Included are a few bonus tracks (Borinquen and Pa' Celia) from Nayibe's previous release. Highly Recommended. (BP, 2012-06-29)
