This is Eddie's first post "La Perfecta Orchestra" days where Eddie uses an unusually large and variable brass section; trumpets,t-bones, saxs, tubas, flutes and french horns. That and his great rhythm section provides excellent tumbaos and marvelous solos. The 16 year old Lalo Rodriguez really show the salsa world he was here to stay. Eddie's "Nada de ti" has to be one of the greatest salsa songs ever recorded. Everybody gets down on this one. This is without question one of Eddie's five best recordings.

Eddie Palmieri, a pioneer of Latin Jazz is at his best on this work. This is one of his original works and I still love it. His Afro-Cuban roots are more apparent than ever on this work. A must have for any Latin Jazz fan, or anyone who just wants to groove.

I'm a casual fan of salsa. I have a few records and collections and listen to them fairly regularly. I bought this one based in large part on the positive reviews here and the review on another excellent music resource website that publishes extended reviews of albums by professional critics.

I was not disappointed by any stretch, but I can't really pin down why I like this album so much. I can try to describe my experience, though. Time and time again, I'll find myself listening to some of the tunes just casually in the background, but before I know it, I am completely engrossed. "Una Rosa Espanola" is a perfect example. At first, I'm listing to a sweet little instrumental tune; then I'm thinking about how cool it is that there is the same vocal melody as "You Never Give Me Your Money"; then by the time the groove kicks in my heart is thumping and my eyes are rolling.

My experience with the album is the similar. It's not that fireworks went off when I heard it, but I can't stop listening to it.

Eddie Palmieri is Eddie palmieri is Eddie Palmieri. The Lord. The Piano Man. The orchesta riffs, the sweaty and hell-fast bongo player (his name's Choki). The singer. Pardon me: the sirene-wailing singer. Lalo Rodriguez "la trepa en la China" (an expression for salsa climaxes). This CD is a classic. Well, it won a Grammy!

This classic album was the first-ever Salsa album to win a Grammy award. The unbeatable and unstoppable combination of Eddie Palmieri's fiery yet ever-enjoyable Piano playing, a Salsa band of the highest calibre and Lalo Rodriguez' ultra-soulful yet intensely mind-blowing soneos (improvisations) make this album a true Salsa masterpiece that truly deserved every bit of its success. "Un Dia Bonito", "Deseo Salvaje", "Nada De Ti" and "Nunca Contigo" are your reasons for buying this CD. Enjoy!

Eddie Palmieri really manages the fusion jazz sound, along with salsa and other more Latin, Caribbean tones and melodies, into a really enjoyable recording. If you like pure Latin salsa a la Grupo Niche, it's in there. If you like stylish jazz piano, it's in there. If you like 70s fusion jazz a la Weather Report, it's in there. In the end, this is just a really happy, melodic, recording of great rhythmic jazz music, regardless of the genre's brought in. Try it, you'll love it!
