His debut as a producer in 1998, “De Puerto Rico al Mundo” with his band Viento de Agua is a fusion of traditional Bomba and Plena with a spice of Jazz and was acclaimed by the New York Times as one of the 10 best recordings made in New York in 1998. His most recent recording, Ricardo Pons y Plena del Sol, produced by his own label, Musaboricua, was greatly acclaimed by the public. As a leader of his own quartet, Causacomún he has just released his first Jazz recording ; Segundapiel.
