ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
CINTRON, the Latin Soul/Jazz Group that brought you memorable hits like their versions of "ALL DAY MUSIC", "HEY THERE LONELY GIRL" and their biggest hit "SUAVECITO", their remake of the latin classic made famous by MALO, is back with a new CD entitled "LATIN SOUL"! The anticipated follow-up to the worldwide smash "BACK IN THE DAY", CINTRON continues their foray into the inner depths of Latin Soul with this exciting new CD! Their previous release, the first under major-label distribution (UNIVERSAL) brought their signature "latin soul" sound to a international stage, resulting in the accumulation of many, many new fans around the world in addition to the "die-hard" CINTRON fans who have been there from the very first CD "CINTRON ABSOLUTELY", the group's biggest selling CD, according to such digital music outlets and retailers such as iTunes! This latest CD picks up just where the last one left off, opening up with the grandiose "CINTRON'S LATIN SOUL THEME". Composed by Rocco DePersia, the lead singer of the band, Edgardo Cintron, the principal musician in the band, and the great keyboardist and arranger Jimmy Lopez, the theme sets the tone for what comes off as a very exciting Latin Soul/Jazz musical listening and dancing experience! Then, in keeping with CINTRON'S niche for doing great remakes of classic soul songs, the "OLD SCHOOL PHILLY MEDLEY" comes on, which is by far the highlight of the album. Songs included in this medley are the great Gamble & Huff penned tune, "TOGETHER" which is sung ably by Bobby DePersia, one of the great singers in this multi-talented group. It is then followed by "I'M STONE IN LOVE WITH YOU" which brings us back to the unique and dependable falsetto of JAYAR, keyboardist and co-lead singer in the band. He pays tribute to one of his musical heroes in this song, the amazing Original Lead Singer of the Stylistics, RUSSELL THOMPKINS, JR. as if the falsetto singing torch was being passed down from one generation to the next! Then comes an interesting rendition of a song made famous by a movie filmed in the "city of brotherly love", ROCKY, as the song "YOU TAKE MY HEART AWAY" one of the themes from that auspicious movie, is done pristinely by Rocco DePersia as well as a guest vocal appearance from his daughter, Angela, duetting with JAYAR, who goes from falsetto to his powerful natural voice. The next song in the medley, "LA LA LA MEANS I LOVE YOU", a multi-million selling hit made famous by THE DELFONICS is once again handled ably by JAYAR, who picks up the vocal baton and sings the tune in the great style made memorable by DELFONICS lead singer WILLIAM "POOGIE" HART, who also co-wrote this monster hit. Other songs included in this set are a remake of a song written and made famous originally by THE SOUL SURVIVORS who were featured on the previous CINTRON album revisiting their classic top 10 R&B & POP hit, "EXPRESSWAY TO YOUR HEART". "CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE" appears on this latest CD, which was a hit for the SOUL SURVIVORS back in 1974, and Rocco's lead singing together with JAYAR's falsetto vocals and Bobby DePersia & Anthony Bartolomeo's backing vocals with the rest of the band recreate this song which is bound to be a hit all over again, not unlike the success of "SUAVECITO"! What's interesting to note here is that the rest of the album contains originals written by different members of the band, once again showcasing the great songwriting talent in this amazing group! Great instrumentals, which have always been integral parts of past CINTRON albums, appear here as well such as "EDDIE'S INFLUENCE" (which pays tribute to the great EDDIE PALMEIRI) and "JELLY JAM", both excellent instrumentals written by Angel Velez, lead trumpet player in the band. The album continues CINTRON's tradition of light, breezy Latin Pop with songs such as "NADA", a simply gorgeous ballad written by JAYAR and Rocco DePersia, who share the lead vocals on the song, which includes notable guitar work from Joe "Stretch" Vinson as well as Tony Perez on backing vocals. And then there are, of course, the tender ballads written by Rocco DePersia which pretty much round out the rest of the album from the old school doo-wop singing contained in "ONE MORE SONG" and the simply pretty "ARE YOU THE ONE?" to "CITY OF CAMDEN" (a musical ode to Rocco's hometown of CAMDEN, NEW JERSEY) and "TOGETHER ALONE" (all these pretty ballads complete with lead singing chores very well displayed by Rocco and JAYAR) and the retrospective, bittersweet ballad that ends the album, "JUST GO BACK". With this new release, CINTRON proves once again that they are the only band you want to turn to and can depend on when you want to hear more of "CINTRON'S LATIN SOUL...UH-HUH!"
