Ray Barretto: Indestructible

Album Notes

Conga master Ray Barretto's 1976 release, INDESTRUCTIBLE, is one of those classic '70s LPs that is most representative of the Fania label's famous salsa brand. It is more than just a series of danceable salsa tracks however. For example, Barretto's band shifts seamlessly from salsa to jazz improvisation to Cuban son on "El Hijo de Obatala" while "El Diablo" infuses a slow bolero style over smooth, powerful vocals. And the title track itself still invokes old school flavors that today's salsa music sadly lacks. INDESTRUCTIBLE is a must have for any self-respecting '70s New York Latin collection.
