!- What people say about this CD:

-If you like "Christmas Parrandas" – you’ll love this festive Latin Christmas song collection! -

“This CD is so good everyone should play it regardless of what language they speak. To me it is an instant Holiday Classic like Vince Guaraldi’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas” or “A Christmas Gift for You” from Phil Spector. It’s that good!” The Daily Hampshire Gazzette Northampton,Massachusetts

“I’ve played the CD over and over .. What a festive , fun CD! It’s just great! Susan Norris, Hadley, MA

I love the Puerto Rican Christmas music, and for
this reason I have to say that I like this CD the best of all of your CDs
thus far. Brandon Marger -World Music Director & host of "Afro Roots" - WMUA 91.1 FM Amherst, MA

Feliz Navidad Boricua - Though you may cling to Bing when it comes to celebrating the Christmas season, Puerto Rican cuatro maestro, Jose Gonzalez and Banda Criolla offer one toe-tapping, bum wiggling alternative. No foreign language skills are required here. Simply trade in a couple of”fa la las” for “le lo lais”, grab a fruity rum drink and let this ten track fiesta turn a tree trimming into a flamenco-stomping, air casteneting romp across the cultural divide. No strangers to Southern New Englands world music enthusiasts, Western Massachusetts based Gonzalez and his band have already released more than a fistful of Puerto Rican and Caribbean spiced CD’s.- Liz Vannah- The Valley Advocate, Massachusetts Dec 04
-“P.S. Es el mejor disco de esta temporada navideña acá en Puerto Rico! Mucho exito y adelante con tu musica de altura.” Dr. M. Fucile,Corozal,P.R

-“íEsta buenisimo! .. . Es mas, ese va a ser mi regalo de Navidad para varias personas.” Iris Rivera- Las Piedras, Puerto Rico

-“Fantastic CD! I think it is super! Your best CD yet!”- Johnny Memphis WRSI Radio "The River" Northampton, MA


“I’ve played the CD over and over and today took it to my sons house and played it for them. What a festive , fun CD! It’s just great! ..I’ve spent a few Christmas’ visiting San Juan so this wonderful variety of Christmas songs brought back many memories. Than you so much!”
Susan

“Yo quede fascinada con el CD Feliz Navidad Boricua de Jose Gonzalez”! – Nellie Rivera WKAQ- Radi Reloj, San Juan , Puerto Rico

José González y Banda Criolla regresan con "¡Feliz Navidad Boricua!", en el que se hace plausible el amor que el músico siente por su patria.
"La llamada a Santa Clós", "Todo lo que pido", "¿Dónde vas cardelanito?", "Bella es la Isla", "Otra Navidad que viene" son algunas de las melodías que colman este trabajo, en el que sobresale el sabor del cuatro y la guitarra.

CD Reviews for Feliz Navidad Boricua --Full letters below...--

Fantastic CD ! I think it is great!.. Fantastic CD I think it is super! Johnny Memphis WRSI Daily Hampshire Gazzette

Estimado amigo Gonzalez: Soy fanatico de tu musica por lo que me interesa obtener alguno de los primeros discos en formato de CD,que son verdaderos clasicos. Vivi 13 años alla fueraen Phila.1969-1982 durante la epoca del renacimiento cultural boricua.Fueron muchas las parrandas que dimos alla y hasta presentaciones con un grupito que teniamos de "nueva cancion".Hoy trato de inculcarle esta musica a mis nietos.Y le voy a estar mandando tu disco de Navidad a mis nietos y sobrinos alla ya que contiene un mensaje bonito y el toque "bilingue" es muy apropiado para la generacion de hoy,en especial parael que se cria alla...le da un "espacio" y reconoce su realidad ademas de defender nuestra identidad. Mucho exito y adelante con tu musica de altura. Dr. M. Fucile,Corozal,P.R.
P.S. Es el mejor disco de esta temporada navideña acá.

Estimado José:

Hoy (mejor anoche al celebrar la Noche Buena) recibimos tu más reciente CD
sobre música navideña. Estoy completamente de acuerdo con uno de tus oyentes:
es la mejor grabación de música puertorriqueña navideña en este año y, me
atrevo agregar, en muchos años anteriores. Te felicito por ello. Gracias por
compartir la hermosa experiencia con el soldado boricua de viaje a Puerto
Rico. Vivimos tiempos peligrosos pero sé que hay simiente de paz aunque la
oscuridad, todavía, sea tan real tanto en Estados Unidos como en Puerto Rico.

Saludos a ti y a toda tu familia.

Roberto Alejandro
