Pa' Mi Pueblo
CD (Charansalsa 176928), Released 2012;
Editor's Pick:
Best of 2012 Award Winner

Terrific charanga-salsa release led by percussionist ldefonso "Pito" Castillo (Adalberto Santiago, Jose Alberto “El Canario,” Bobby Rodriguez y La Compañia, Tito Allen...) and flautist-trombonist Joe De Jesus (Tito Puente, Ray Barretto, Celia Cruz, David Byrne...). Julio Salgado is the lead vocalist (Johnny Ortiz sings, too, on Tu Mago Personal) and he's backed by notable East Coast salsa veterans like violinist Lewis Kahn, Ruben Rodríguez and Luis Mangual Jr. This is solid, sabor-packed dance material rooted in Cuban dance traditions by way of New York, a la the famed Orquesta Broadway. Strong arrangements by Nino Segarra, Joe De Jesus and Rey Crespo, Pa' Mi Pueblo is packed with flute and violin powered jams. Expect a very high percentage of sizzlers like Me Da Risa and Yo Bailo De Todo. José Fajardo's classic La Charanga, complete with John Robinson's killer cello work, brings this rockin' little session to a very satisfying close. Highly Recommended. (BP, 2012-09-11)
