Manny Oquendo & Libre - Los New Yorkinos! Year of release: 2000.
This edition of Libre features Andy Gonzalez on bass, trombonists Papo Vazquez and Jimmy Bosch, and pianist Willie Rodriguez. Oquendo and company swing on the salsa jams "Oquendo y Libre" and "Muevete un Poco," (the former featuring rapper El Cacique) and offer a kicking treatment of the Count Basie favorite, "Lester Leaps In." The husky contralto of Cuba`s Xiomara Lugart colors the ballroom bolero "Quiereme y Veras," enhanced by Joe Locke`s orchestral synthesizer and vibraphone fills. The guaracha-rumba "No Cuentas" and the mambo-son "Chiquilla Ideal" exemplify the call-and-response and montuno traditions that cement Latin music`s thrilling range.
As usual, Libre serves up a potopourri of rhythms for the dancer`s: Salsa, Latin Jazz, Mambo, Guaracha, Rumba, Guajira and even a sensuous bolero for good measure. Featured on vocals are Cuban sensation, Xiomara Lougart, Jorge Maldonado and rapper, Cacique who all do an admirable job.

Manny Oquendo and Libre are much more than just a Latin band. Over the years (27) they have become one of New York`s treasures and a cultural institution! Consider the amount of talent that has sprung from "la escuela" (the school)of Manny Oquendo and Libre: Jerry Gonzalez, Andy Gonzalez, Dave Valentin, Papo Vasquez, Steve Turre, Jimmy Bosch and Herman Olivera to name a few. The bands most recent release is entitled, "Los New Yorkinos!" This is typical Libre, swinging from start to finish. Some of the songs have been around for a number of years and just needed a little overdubbing, remixing and a finsishing touch. As usual, Libre serves up a potopourri of rhythms for the dancer`s: Salsa, Latin Jazz, Mambo, Guaracha, Rumba, Guajira and even a sensuous bolero for good measure. Featured on vocals are Cuban sensation, Xiomara Lougart, Jorge Maldonado and rapper, Cacique who all do an admirable job.
