THE BEST party music c.d.! buy this CD at CD Baby


The enthusiasm and vibrancy never fail to generate sparks on their self-produced debut album. New York City transplant Joseph Wohletz, whose credentials include stints with Ray Barretto, The Cesta All-Stars, and Bobby Rodrigues Y La Compañia, takes the Eddie Palmieri vehicle ‘Puerto Rico’ to a new level, interpreting the melody with a bold brassy passion. Yet it’s Govea with his button-row accordion who steals the show with vallenato-pounding riffs pouring out a joy that sings on Colombian faves like ‘La Gota Fria’…It’s a fun-filled effort that will delight any dancing requirement.

" stone cold conjunto norteño... the family who plays together stays together, and René is demonstrating some serious talent on the squeezebox. If corridos and dusty border classics are your thing, don’t miss this one!" (San Francisco Bay Guardian, 1-24-2001) buy this CD at CD Baby
