Luisito Quintero is a Venezuelan percussionist, who has played with everyone in Latin music from Tito Puente to Gloria Estefan. On This album Luisito stakes a claim to that fabulously fertile middle ground where New York’s jazz, salsa and African – American dance traditions meet.
Little Louie Vega is NY latin music royalty, the nephew of the great Puerto Rican singer Hector Lavoe he has been labelled ‘the Miles Davis of dance music’
Together they have created the modern ascendant of The Fania Allstars golden moments. Over the last eighteen months Luisito has taken his incendiary rhythms to the far corners of the world. This album mirrors that riotous rhythmic journey starting in Africa & ending with the sultry beats of Latin America via New York.
