"Across 110th St.,' by the thirteen member Spanish Harlem Orchestra, was a highly deserving Grammy winner for Best Salsa, as it gives us infectious new versions of the decades of Nuyorican's (New York's Puerto Rican, and, by extension, Latin population) favored "salsa dura" (hard salsa). The orchestra that was founded in 2000 by Aaron Luis Levinson, and salsa legend Oscar Hernandez, received a Grammy nomination for its debut album,Un Gran Dia en el Barriothey were also named Best New Artist of 2003 by the Billboard Latin Music Awards.

Their new versions of old songs celebrate the rich, intertwining cultures of New York's Latino communities, and are dedicated to preserving the vital history of classic Latin music while bearing in mind the tastes of today's dancers. Aside from the somewhat weak bolero "Esperame En El Cielo," there isn't a loser in the bunch. Heavy brass leads the sound: two trumpets, two trombones, and a baritone saxophone. Add in conga, bonga, timbale players, and, for percussion, upright bass, and an acoustic piano. The rhythms are Afro-Cuban, the horns are hard-riffing, the piano is rippling, and the vocals, ah: delivered by Ruben Blades, winner of four Grammies, and such other experienced hands as Ray De La Paz and Marco Bermudez. World class soloist Jimmie Bosch is on that lead trombone. I have seen the Spanish Harlem Orchestra perform with Bosch, and the music is simply electrifying: even the dead would find it hard to resist. You could say it channels the exuberance of 1960's-`70's salsa in its heyday; the energy and spirit of El Barrio. This is hot, hot hot exploding music that does its makers proud.

This CD won the Grammy award in 2005 for Best Salsa/Merengue Album. It is a great CD full of salsa dura, with a few cha-cha-chas thrown in. All the tracks are danceable, with a variety of tempos and plenty of stimulating call and response from the brass and vocals. This CD has hotter tracks and an even greater "big band" feel than the Spanish Harlem Orchestra's previous album, "Un Gran Dia en el Barrio." "Maestro de Rumbero," became a fast favorite, but there are many other songs that I still enjoy listening to. If you enjoy salsa dura and Latin jazz, you will love this CD; however, I have found that fans of smoother and more romantic salsa tend not to like this music very much. If you enjoy this album, check out Spanish Harlem Orchestra's newest release, United We Swing, as well as La Excelencia's Salsa con Conciencia.

I bought this for my daughter, played it and subsequently bought a copy for myself. Rueben Blades is perhaps the finest salsa singer ever, and pairing him with the exuberant Spanish Harlem Orchestra was a brilliant idea. It's a match made in heaven, and this album really sizzles, with great horn work and soulful vocals. I'm not surprised that it won a 2005 Grammy, but I'm shocked that it is out of print just 7 years later.

Esta musica te lleva! I was back in Spanish harlem if only in my heart. It drove me to want to sing and dance, took me back home to NYC. Nice provocative sound. Once again, musical arrangements outstanding.

The music from this group evokes the sense of being back in the old neighborhood. Sound is contemporary and relevant.
