What can be said about this salsa-mambo explosion in light of the recent passing of the King, Tito Puente? Just this: This highly anticipated release, joining Latin music's royalty, hits its mark squarely in the eye and exceeds expectation.
What could have been weighty and bogged down by both over-production and ego instead comes up fresh, frenetic and enthusiastic. Together these guys transcended their individual immense selves to become the bodhisattvas of sabor.
