Wow, here's a superb salsa release direct from Venezuela. Bassist Julito Fernandez Antillano has some pristine gems here. Check out "Maribel," "Traigo Salsa" and, of course, the spectacular cover track "Pa'l Bailador," here offered in two versions. Fernandez has surrounded himself with some of the area's best musicians: pianist Joel Uriola, trombonist David Gonzalez Jr., sax player Oswaldo Lezama, singers Angel Flores, Oscar Arriaga, Rey Armas and Angel Degado, as well as coroistas Rodrigo Mendoza, Wilmer Lozano, and veteran Cesar "Albondiga" Monges.
Highly Recommended. (BP, 2009-11-04)
