Product Details
Description
Like most of the collaborations between trombonist, com­poser and musical director Willie Colón and mercurial Puerto Rican singer Héctor Lavoé, the album that you hold in your hands transcends the boundaries of salsa. Released in 1970, "The Big Break" is a masterpiece of Latin music, the kind of formidable artistic statement that established the Fania label as a cultural icon-- going beyond the parameters of a company specializing in crowd pleasing dance music.

Needless to say, this is still a great party album, filled with dance friendly classics such as "Barrunto" and "Abuelita". At the same time, it crystallizes the Colón/Lavoé aesthetic that the duo had been developing on previous albums ("The Big Break" is Colón's sixth release on the Fania label.)
