description

Barranquilla's Pete Vicentini has won the respect and admiration of salsa aficionados for his long career and artistic quality as musical director, composer, bassist, pianist and arranger. Although his group El Afrocombo did not have the overwhelming commercial success of Fruko y sus Tesos, Joe Arroyo y La Verdad or Grupo Niche during the height of Colombian salsa, they enjoyed a popular following in the Atlantic and Caribbean coastal areas of Colombia. "Pan Con Salsa" (1971) was their excellent debut LP. Most of its cuts are in the salsa genre, but the album also includes Vicentini's native costeño rhythms like cumbia and porro, a funky boogaloo cover of Tito Puente's 'Oye cómo va', Puerto Rican style bomba, and the title track, composed by Vicentini, which is a frenetic descarga (jam session) with lots of tasty brass solos, in-the-pocket piano tumbaos (riffs) and break-neck percussion work-outs. The record has its own lively 'combo' sound in the plucky brass section (two trumpets and two saxes), plus the always bright and happy piano stylings of Willy Newball and of course the prominent bass playing, expert direction and arrangements of Vicentini. Presented in facsimile artwork and pressed on 180g vinyl. Part of Vampisoul's reissue series of classic LPs from Colombia's Codiscos and its sublabels such as Zeida, Costeño and Famoso. More info: Although Pete Vicentini's El Afrocombo did not have the overwhelming commercial and international success of Fruko y sus Tesos, Joe Arroyo y La Verdad or Grupo Niche during the height of Colombian salsa in the 1970s and 80s, Pedro "Pete" Luis Vicentini del Valle (born in 1946) and his combo did have a popular following among fans in the Atlantic and Caribbean coastal areas of Colombia (especially in his home town of Barranquilla). He has won the respect and admiration of many salsa aficionados for his long career of excellent performances and recordings, plus his professionalism and artistic quality as musical director, compose
