Album Review

Superb return for Willie Rosario after a four-year recording hiatus. He brings in a few alumni from the past (arranger/bass player Bobby Valentin, singers Tony Vega and Gilberto Santa Rosa, conga player Jimmie Morales, and arranger Humberto Ramírez) and a few extra hands (Papo Lucca on piano and Roberto Roena on bongos). With that personnel, Rosario crafts his best album in years, still distinguishing the timbalero's compact, restrained rhythm sense, supported by his fiery four-trumpet and baritone saxophone lineup. The standouts are "La Bomba" (sung by Rosario's regular vocalist Ricardo "Rico" Walker), Santa Rosa's version of "El Apartamento" (which is closer to the singer's own solo approach than his days with Rosario), and a newer version of "Arrepentíios Pecadores" by Tony Vega. A superior addition of the bandleader's remarkable four-decade career. ~ José A. Estévez, Jr., Rovi

Back To The Future: Review

Willie's "Back To The Future" is one of his best ever. In here, you get to hear Willie's new sound at its max. This was his 40th anniversary and decided to include master singers Gilberto Santa Rosa and Tony Vega. Both blossomed into stardom after their time together, just in case you were wondering. All 12 songs are excellent. My favorite is "El Apartamento" followed closely by "Juntos De Nuevo" and "Arrepentidos Pecadores". "Que Pasa Contigo" is up there as well. The others are extremely good as well. If you are a real Willie Rosario fan, I encourage you to listen to this or buy it. Trust me, you won't regret it. Willie then did a live recording in Colombia that you should consider getting. He also did another live perfomance in either Puerto Rico or New York. I'm still trying to find out where exactly. Enjoy.

Arriving in New York City from Puerto Rico in 1948, Rosario was moved by Tito Puente's drumming ability at the Palladium Ballroom. He began his percussion studies and made his pro debut with Johnny Sequi's band in 1953. When Sequi moved to Puerto Rico, Rosario took over the band and today...
