Barranquillas Pete Vicentini has won the respect and admiration of salsa aficionados for his long career and artistic quality as musical director, composer, bassist, pianist and arranger. Although his group El Afrocombo did not have the overwhelming commercial success of Fruko y sus Tesos, Joe Arroyo y La Verdad or Grupo Niche during the height of Colombian salsa, they enjoyed a popular following in the Atlantic and Caribbean coastal areas of Colombia. "Pan Con Salsa" (1971) was their excellent debut LP. Most of its cuts are in the salsa genre, but the album also includes Vicentinis native costeno rhythms like cumbia and porro, a funky boogaloo cover of Tito Puentes Oye como va, Puerto Rican style bomba, and the title track, composed by Vicentini, which is a frenetic descarga (jam session) with lots of tasty brass solos, in-the-pocket piano tumbaos (riffs) and break-neck percussion work-outs. The record has its own lively combo sound in the plucky brass section (two trumpets and two saxes), plus the always bright and happy piano stylings of Willy Newball and of course the prominent bass playing, expert direction and arrangements of Vicentini. Presented in facsimile artwork and pressed on 180g vinyl. Part of Vampisouls reissue series of classic LPs from Colombias Codiscos and its sublabels such as Zeida, Costeno and Famoso.
