CD+DVD Pequeño Johnny - Pasos Gigantes
Top salsa album uit New York van de (ex) conguero van Sonora Poncena Pequeño Johnny. CD met 12 nummers + bijbehorende live DVD met 4 tracks. Gasten oa. Papo Lucca, Giovanni Hidalgo, Alfredo de la Fe, Ray Castro, Nelson Gonzalez.
Little Johnny Rivero, the first-call percussionist who has played with Ismael Quintana, Cheo Feliciano, Descarga Boricua, Domingo Quinones, Mulenze and many other great bands, has release a smart, no-nonsense salsa project that oozes with New York veteran know-how.
As an orchestra leader, Mr. Rivero has created a rich, full sound and his hard driving percussive finesse is guaranteed to keep the dancers movingâ€” he`s brought in high caliber players like Spanish Harlem Orchestra`s Peter Nater and Raul Agraz.
A terrific job by singers Manny Mieles and Pedro Martinez. Listen to "Ay! Mujeres," and the hauntingly beautiful "Mi Yambu" with the great Nelson Gonzalez on tres. With top notch arrangements, mostly by Eric Figueroa and Andre Hernandez, Pasos Gigantes features special guests Papo Lucca, Giovanni Hidalgo, Alfredo De La Fe and Nelson Gonzalez.
This CD comes with a bonus four track DVD, a live performance from New York City
