Ray Perez - El Trigueño Cintura (LP)

This song is from 1968's Primer Aniversario LP on Velvet. There is a re-press on Ray's pyraphon label, but it is still hard to find. That was ray singing on "Pa'l 23", this one features Perucho Torcat, one of the great voices in classic salsa. Ray's piano style is delicious. He worked at the Remington adding machine company in the late '50s, where he used to set different adding machines doing different calculations to make polyrhythms he could sing over. (B) Listen
