The Orchestra Soledad's only LP from 1971 has been going for sums nearing the $1000 mark on Ebay and Discogs, which makes this reissue move by Gilles Peterson something of a Godsend. The Brooklyn salsa legends have been near impossible to find on digital either, and we're no proud to have this incredible record on our charts. Trust us when we say that it's one of those LPs that'll have you hooked and bound to your speakers/headphones form the moment you put it on; it's also enedlessly pleasing to find an LP which maintains a quality momentum for its whole duration. The tunes are made of something special, a moody NYC sensibility that somehow permeates into a genre so upbeat as salsa. Similar to the gear that Honest Jon's has put out for decades, this is a special moment of history.
