In the history of Afro-Cuban based dance music, Ray Barretto’s Rican/Struction stands as one of its brightest beacons. Its clever title and Izzy Sanabria/Jorge Vargas cover art ode to the Lilliputians of Gulliver’s Travels literally Rican-Structing Ray’s right hand speaks not only to the music, but to Ray’s ever evolving career as a performer, bandleader, composer, visionary and his response to adversity. By the early 70’s, the majority of his band had quit to form Tipica 73. Starting with…

Metiendo Mano

I remember just as if it was yesterday that the 8-track cartridge of Metiendo Mano (Fania 500) arrived at record stores before the single “Pablo Pueblo” was played on the radio. I bought my copy at Joyería Danilú in Canóvanas, Puerto Rico, for only $4.99. In 1977, I was one of the thousands of salseros who approached Colón's new work with trepidation. After bringing an end to his partnership with Héctor Lavoe and recording a special project with Mon Rivera, Willie presented Blades as the new…

Cosa Nuestra

The hegemony of Willie Colón and Héctor Lavoe in the circuit of rising youth bands in New York around the middle of the 1960s was consolidated at the end of 1969 with the launch of the LP “Cosa Nuestra”. The cover photograph, a Henri Wolfe original, recreates a typical crime scene of the mafia and the underworld: a murder which would not leave behind any traces or fingerprints because the victim’s body would be disposed of in the Hudson River with an enormous rock tied to his feet. As the…

Adalberto Featuring Popeye El Marino

It was one of the biggest coups in the history of salsa. Vocalist Adalberto Santiago and other musicians from the Ray Barretto orchestra hopped a flight from Colombia to New York to tell the unforgettable Conguero Indestructible that they were leaving his band to form their own Típica 73. After the experimental jazz album The Other Road, Barretto got over his colleagues’ departure and went on to release the LP Indestructible. Adalberto, timbal player Orestes Vilató, bongo player Johnny…

Barretto Power

It was the early 70’s, Jerry Masucci (the former police officer turned lawyer) and his newly formed Fania Records was establishing itself as a power in the Latino music industry. Recordings by Johnny Pacheco (who became the labels vice president), Larry Harlow, Willie Colon and Ray Barretto were giving the label a visible identity of hip-ness. They were all characterized by a sound based on the best traditions of Afro-Cuban music but with an “in-your-face” contemporary NYC attitude. Although…

Salsa Y Control

Now into their fifth decade and considered icons in Colombia, the Lebrón Brothers are one of most original and distinctive sounding salsa bands to come out of New York. Between 1967 and 1982 they knocked-out 16 albums on the Cotique Records label founded in late 1965 by George Goldner (1918-1970). Originally organized in 1965 with the name Angel Lebrón and his Orchestra, the outfit is co-led by Angel Lebrón (bass, arranger, composer, cuatro, lead and chorus singer) and José Lebrón (piano…
