Kenny Quintero & V.A. “El Timbalero Del Pueblo” (Tributo a Paleco)

A unique Salsa album that will take you back to the best years of Fania when the Kings of Salsa used to gather and make legendary albums. King of Salsa Bobby Cruz featuring on this recording with David Pabon, Nino Segarra, Vikki Romero, Lefty Perez, Marcos Ibañez from grupo Arquimia, Nacho Sanabria, Edgardo Morales, Richard Bravao, Kenny Quintero and many others excellent studio musicians. The recording has been dedicated as a Tribute to legendary Timbalero from El Gran Combo Edgardo Morales. A concept that was developed by Kenny Quintero and the present Artist in making this tribute to Edgardo a true super star of the Salsa family. Everyone at the Studio was looking to recall a sound that was created in the 70’s records when Salsa was at it’s best tone and the feeling of the music was vibrant and classic. Edgardo Morales one of the best Timbaleros of all times also recorded on the Album giving the project a sense of energy and fusion that only him could bring to a recording.


If you are a Salsa lover this album will become classic on your collection. Since Edgardo recorded with so many Stars like Sonora Ponceña, Puertorican Power, El Gran Combo, Orquesta Brava, and many others he was named by the Music industry and all Salseros “El Timbalero Del Pueblo”. This recording features 15 songs, 8 of them with soaring Timbales solo! Rumba for los Rumberos … Many other rich improvisations include solos in Bass, Congas, Guitar, Violin, Bongo, Piano, Trumpet, Trombone and Sax. “Recordings with this blend are far in between” Commented legendary singer Bobby Cruz in the Recording Studio, at Studio Bravo Productions we have to agree with Bobby this record will be one that people will love and continue to enjoy for generations to come.
