Review: Gold-Plating the sound from a legend of the New York scene, Grammy-winning remixer Louie Vega delivers us a sweetly refined compilation of Luisito Quintero's percussion music! With tributes to deceased heroes such as Fela Kuti and Tito Puente, plus his own version of Ray Barretto's classic "Acid", this compilation offers a veritable treasure trove for percussion fans that encompasses everything from Afrobeat and bossa nova to Latin jazz. Check out the bongo-based percussions of "Four Beat Mambo" to the outlandish carnival-style energy of "Quintero's Jam". Hot summer nights and the city...can you feel it!

Review: Legendary Little Louie teams up with Venezuelan legend Quintero for a spiritual escapade that takes us deep into the Puerto Rican rain forest. Each mix shuddering and shimmying with its own distinctive nuances, the emphasis is focused squarely on the hypnotic percussive groove. Loaded with rich organic elements, "El Yunque" is a guaranteed journey tool that offers something new on every listen. Masterful.
