Jazz New - LP 90693 Island
Sealed 1988 Original. Two Stickers On The Front. “Part Of A Major Rush Of Album Work By Yomo Toro In The '80s And '90s, Funky Jibaro Is A Very Nice LP Of Basic Puerto Rican Traditional Music And Salsa, With A Touch Of New York Or Nuyorican Influence Here And There. The Album Is A Full Press Of Pumping Beats And Full Arrangements For A Midsize Band And Rotating Vocalists. The Star Of The Show All The Way Though Is Yomo Toro Himself, Using The Cuatro For Catchy Riffs, For Backing The Vocalists, For Extended Solo Displays Of Virtuosity, And For Laying Out Grooves When He Isn't Busy With Other Duties On The Instrument. Overall, It's A Nice Mix Of Recognizable Tunes And New Pieces, With All Of The Musicians Delivering Good Performances. Entirely Solid -- And Mostly Danceable, Too.” - Adam Greenberg, AMG... more details
