ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Salsa dura recorded in the early 1970's by Puerto Ricans from Brooklyn, New York. This youthful nine piece latin band was led by trombonist Julio Millan and pianist Tony Ortega. Their sound was very much in the classic salsa vein of a heavy rhythm alongside a tight horn section with soulful vocals. The vocals are in Spanish and the groove is salsa dura.

The band were heavily influenced by the Afro-Cuban sound from Cuba and several of their songs reflect this. The arrangements are funky and progressive, with a great swinging feel to them. The youthfulness and energy of the band comes through loud and clear in their musicianship, their music bursting with fiery solos, hard hitting percussion and soulful vocals. They describe their music as guaguanco, descarga, Santeria, bolero-son etc..

The musicians are: Julio Millan Leader - 1st trombone; Ray Rivera - 2nd trombone; Tony Ortega - Piano; Julio Fonseca - Timbales; Kelvin Fonseca - Bongos; Alfredo Burgos - Bass; Leo Rosado - Vocals; Eddie Rodriguez - Conga; Jimmy Cabot - Claves Maracas.
