Eddie Palmieri's 1971 LP Vamonos Pa'l Monte moves easily from the nearly avant-garde trumpet-battle opener "Revolt/La Libertad Logico" into the new-era-meets-old "Caminando," complete with an excellent electric-piano solo by Palmieri himself. He also takes the lead on the seven-minute title-track jam, this time with organ (backed by brother Charlie), backed by a strong vocal chorus (Justo Betancourt, Santos Colon, Yayo el Indio) and the rugged timbales playing of Nick Marrero. Above and beyond the irresistible arrangements and intricate playing, Vamonos Pa'l Monte benefits from one of the best recording jobs of any early-'70s salsa record, each section -- and practically each musician -- vigorously separated with clear stereo. Though many fans consider it a transition record toward the compositional brilliance of The Sun of Latin Music, it's actually a much better record for fans of traditional salsa. © John Bush /TiVo

Latin - Released September 25, 2007 | Fania

During the late '50s and early '60s, progressive Latin music was ruled by the charanga, a light and springlike configuration emphasizing flutes and violins. Although pianist Eddie Palmieri didn't break that mold, his debut recordings as a leader did change the game quite a bit. With nimble rhythms and a powerhouse front line featuring R&B trombone player Barry Rogers and Palmieri's strident piano playing -- he played his piano percussively, due to early timbales lessons -- the group lay at the intersection of R&B, jazz, and, of course, Latin music. Palmieri's debut album, La Perfecta released in 1962 on the Alegre label, was not only a Latin masterpiece but also paved the way for the free-form extravaganza that became salsa later in the decade. Palmieri's group continued until 1967, recording for Alegre or Tico, and the best of the band's work appears on the 19-track compilation Sugar Daddy. Compared to Ray Barretto, Tico's other star of the time, Palmieri's group had slightly less emphasis on the heavy groove (and novelty tendencies) of R&B popcorn. With plenty of percussion plus the soaring sonero vocals of longtime Palmieri associate Ismael Quintana, the band was closer to the sound of traditional Puerto Rican music than most Latin groups working then. The compilation includes four tracks from La Perfecta, as well as the best of his other '60s LPs like Echando Pa'lante (Straight Ahead) and Azucar Pa' Ti (Sugar for You) (the latter including the excellent ten-minute track "Azúcar"). © John Bush /TiVo
