ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
You may be asking yourself, “Who on earth is Orquesta Dee Jay?” Some Latin music enthusiasts are still asking that question today.

When I first heard Orquesta Dee Jay sweet Latin Soul single “Forget it” in 1971 I was under the impression it was recorded by Jimmy Sabater one of lead singers for Joe Cuba Sextet.

After listening to the entire “Forget it” album 10 years ago, I didn’t think much of it and was not impressed. One of the problems I am guilty of, I skipped tracks when the opening of the song didn’t appeal to me. This was a bad habit. I really didn’t listen to the entire album. I was guilty for switching tracks.

Recently I was traveling to work on the bus, I decided to pop The Forget disc I recorded from vinyl on my disc player. It was at that point I said to myself “jumpin jupiters, this band is swinging. Why the heck didn’t I like this album 36 years ago when I first heard it?”

There is something interesting about this Orquesta. Orquesta Dee Jay has an authentic swinging soul sound in their salsa not only in their lyrics but in their music arrangements. There is no question, the album
“Forget it” should have won a Grammy in my book for best swinging Latin Salsa, best single “Forget it” and best coro in the 70s by Yayo El Indio, Adaberlto Santiago & Elio Romero. Every track on this album is a killer.

Don’t take my word for it. Listen to the previews and judge for yourself.

Orquesta Dee-Jay
This is great. Finally I found it on CD after all these years. I grew up with Orquesta Dee Jay. Hanged out with the group as we hanged out where they practice (De Jesus Bridal Shop - where literally Dona Paula was making wedding gowns) Those good all days. This is truly good old 70's Salsa. Hope to see their other albums (I think they had two others)on CD. Gracias CD Baby!!!! Awesome music. Brings Backs memories.

Powerful, Vibrant, Swinging, Hardcore
Sometimes when I buy a CD I get 3 good tracks if I'm lucky. Sometimes 1 of out 100 CDs all tracks are great. This is the second CD I purchased every track is a killer. This is a CD I would listen to a billion times and not get tired of it. Muy Buenisima!!!!

Very big Suprise...Classic 70's Salsa
A lot of good memories listening to Classic 70 Salsa. Enjoy listening to young Rafael De Jesus. Music is outstanding and highly recommend this CD.

WENT TO A HALF DOZEN PERFORMANCES AND THE SONGS ARE GREAT
THE CD IS FANTASTIC - BRINGS BACK TEENAGE BROOKLYN MEMORIES OF WHEN SALSA WAS FOR DANCING AND THE YOUNG WERE INSPIRED TO BECOME MUSICIANS.
