Review: Jose “Pucho” Rivera y Su Gran Orq. “La Rumba Lo Cura Todo”

If you like listening and dancing to a Big Band Salsa Orquestra which includes tracks composed by the Master Ramon Rodriguez (formerly of Conjunto Clasico fame)? If so this is the CD for you. El Maestro Pucho Matos from Aibonito, Puerto Rico has produced this smoking CD entitled “Homenaje a Ramon Rodriguez.

The track we’re featuring “La Rumba Lo Cura Todo” is a monstrous track featuring Dr. Moreno on vocals and solos by all three percussionists Osvaldo Rivera on Bongos, Cachiro Thompson on Congas and Lucas Texidor on Timbales. A definite DJ playlist must for all SALSA DURA lovers. The track features a Tremendous arrangement by Pucho Rivera with mucho sabor y swing Boricua style.
“Cuando Sale La Luna” and “Borinquenita” follow with the same big band flavor suitable for the dancers delight. Additional tracks like “Porque tu Eres”, “Deborah” are Salsa Romanitca produced with arrangements that swing. There is also a Plena called “No se Que Le Pasa” sung by Angel Miguel Centeno con sabor.

The CD ends with another dynamic Big Band track entitled “Medley De Exitos De Ramon Rodriguez” which are basically Conjunto Clasico tunes elegantly redone in Big Band style which you will definitely enjoy.
