Ce' Magnifique (Exclusive)
by Tito Puente
Released: Jul 2006
Another remastered gem from Fania's profound vaults. This 1981 release is one of Puente's later big-band recordings, and it quite simply sparkles, the horns alternately shouting and murmuring like the Caribbean Ocean on a sunny day while Puente's timbales tap out a dancer's Morse code. But for all Puente's star power, the sabor and swing belong equally to vocalist Camilo Azuquita (voice of salsa dura masters Tipica 73), whose performance on the disc is nothing short of extraordinary. Give Azuquita props: The man also drew the groovy album cover!
