|Finally this wonderful album got a European release (a US release is to follow shortly) after it has only been available as an expensive japanese import in the past. Percussionist Luisito Quintero has been an influential part of Louie Vega's "Elements of Life" project (that combined afro-latin rhythms with jazz ans bossa nova sounds), and he is also a member of the Elements of Life Band that has been touring around the world.|
After this successful partnership, Luisito Quintero continues his musical journey with his debut album that is produced by Louie Vega. Among the featured tracks are cover of classics from Tito Puente ("Four beat mambo") and Fela Kuti ("Gbagada, gbagada, gbogodo, gbogodo" which was just released in club versions on Vega Records 12") as well as original tracks that feature many guest artists such as Blaze, Anane, Hilton Ruiz, Milton Cardona and Francis Mbappe.
With "Percussion madness", Luisito Quintero delivers a blissfull collection of funky rhythms and body moving vibes that combines various flavors and influences. Higly recommended.
