That salsa's made in New York City?!?!?

Remember those commercials? You know, for the cheapest, lamest salsa ever? Pace was crap! At least that's how I remember it... and therefore it is truth. But today's blog is not about the food salsa, but the music salsa, which they make very well in New York...

... and with that I dare... DARE... any blogger to come up with a worse segue! Double dog dare! Cuz' it can't be done...



Now, I can't claim to be an expert on the Salsa, but I sure does like it. A lot. I even took a Salsa dancing lesson one time... it was pretty fun, but damn, if they didn't go fast. In like 20 minutes they were expecting us to have this whole ridiculously long string of moves put together... apparently they didn't realize that I was white... anyhoo, here's an excellent Salsa jammy by one of the masters, Mr. Eddie Palmieri, straight-up Nuyorican style! It starts off a bit low-key, and just kind of keeps picking up intensity in the vocal harmonies and horn charts and ya know, I just can't get enough of this shit...

Eddie Palmieri - Lindo Yambu



This particular compilation is out of print, but it can be found... somewhere... ;)
