'... two exceptional compilations of 1960s New York Descargas and Guaguancos. The first is 'New York Descargas', an awesome mix of Alegre/ Tico Allstars type jam sessions, often featuring the same musicians as those labels' 

'This is a superb compilation of Cuban Descargas recorded in New York in the 1960s; around a rhythm or sketched riffs or vocal lines, the musicians can soar off at will, with the funkiest grooves as a kind of safety net for some truly inspired improvising. ...Hot as hell, cool as anything - in the end words are not enough and you can only bow in the presence of greatness.' 
SONGLINES magazine.

'The Cuban Descarga, after being given birth in Havana by such jazz luminaries as Cachao Lopez, Peruchin, Nino Rivera, was fostered in New York by producer Al Santiago. It was he who produced The Salsa All Stars sessions (making up the first 5 Descargas presented on this release) by bringing together the cream of New York Latin musicians, including special guests such as the legendary Cachao, to jam. These sessions went on to influence many others to do likewise thus defining the direction of 'salsa' music in the sixties and seventies. With such musicians as Charlie Palmieri, Cachao, Louie Ramirez, Kako, Puchi Boulong, and the orquestras of Willie Rodriguez, Raphie Martinez and Joe Cotto this release is easily the best of Latin music New York had to offer.'
