Con Machito Y Su Orquesta "Fireworks"
(Musical Productions 5-6262),
Lalo Rodriguez with Machito & his orchestra. Fiery!
"Although the older, classic Machito material is among the most important example of his (and brother-in-law Mario Bauza's) legacy, I really love the Fireworks album for its variety, intensity, and, of course, for Lalo Rodríguez' amazing voice. For me it represents two different generations coming together as one, a signal that this music will never die." (Rebeca Mauleón 96/97 Catalog)
Song titles include:
"Listening to 'Desilucion,' one wonders how such a chronologically young Lalo Rodriguez was capable of writing so poignantly, and delivering the material with so much maturity. He is backed up by the incomparable Machito Orchestra which delivers quite a few punches of its own. 'Macho' will forever sparkle as one of Latin jazz's brightest gems." (Vicki Solá 96/97 Catalog)
"Machito's beautiful orchestra -- with Charlie Palmieri, Victor Paz, Barry Rogers, Bobby Porcelli, Mario Rivera, Johnny Rodriguez, et al, and vocals/coros by Lalo Rodriguez (pre-sensual, but very moving!), Ismael Quintana and Victor Velasquez. Includes hits such as 'Mi Ritmo Llego[ and 'Soy Salsero,' plus a 13-minute Latin jazz cut ('Macho') that is sublime." (Nina Lenart 94/95 Catalog)
