Great music from one of NYC's finest
This is a great-sounding album that is swinging, rootsy unique and muy sabroso. Abe and Son Bori-Cubano have created a sweet mix of son with orisha songs that I could listen to all day long; he has a wonderful, slightly raspy voice that is warm and full of character earned through decades of playing the real thing in the dancehalls, social clubs and fiestas de santo of the Bronx, El Barrio, the Village and the Lower East Side. That voice also graces some fine jazz and do-wop inflected pieces (Abe was half of the duet that performed Totico's famous do-wop rumba masterpiece "What's Your Name").

Abraham Rodriguez is a veteran singer and percussionist of the unique New York Cuban-Puerto Rican music scene that has mixed afro-Cuban and Boricua folklore with son cubano, jazz and salsa since the 1970's, and a contemporary of such great artists as Orlando "Puntilla" Rios, Jerry and Andy Gonzalez, Conjunto Libre, and Totico y sus Rumberos to name a few. This cd is a great chance to capture some of a sound and feeling that those listening to commercial Latin music are rarely lucky enough to hear. Ache pa usted, Abe!
