This album is the second of 3 collaborations between Newyorrican trombonist/bandleader/singer/songwriter/arranger Willie Colón and the greatest "sonera" that has ever lived, Celia Cruz (she is part of the "Holy Trinity" of Afro-Antillean music: Beny Moré, Ismael Rivera and Celia Cruz), released in 1981.

Although not as excellent as its predecessor (which is a classic by its own merits), "Celia & Willie" is still a very good salsa album. Willie's band sounds tight and agressive, while Celia brings the sweet sound of the traditional Cuban "sonero" (in this case, "sonera"). Check out numbers like "Mi Caso", "Dos Jueyes", "Kiribambari", "Come Down to Miami" and "Apaga la luz". There are a couple of album fillers (which is what the 1977 "Only they could have made this album" basically lacks, thank God) and Willie doesn't do any trombone/bass trumpet playing, but it is still a great album.

"Mi Caso", "Dos Jueyes", "Apaga La Luz" and the socio-conscious "Latinos En Estados Unidos" are this album's standouts. Released in 1981, this was Celia Cruz and Willie Colon's second collaboration. It did not sell as well as their first project ("Only They Could Have Made This Album") but it was almost as good. It has been pointed out by many that the first half of the 1980s was a period of turmoil for Salsa because of the sudden and unexpected rise in popularity of Cumbia and Merengue and that (as a result) it left many key figures of the New York Salsa scene in a state of limbo. While not a classic, "Celia Y Willie" was one of the best early-1980s Salsa album and one which proves that good music was still being made even after the golden era of Salsa came to an end.
