Leonardo “Niño” Torrente True to his style of recording unreleased music, Cuban bassist, vocalist and composer Leonardo "Niño" Torrente returns with his group Son De Hoy.
Leonardo, who debuted in 2003 with his magnificent recording Leonardo Torrente and Son De Hoy -which included the hit Compassion- is based in New York and has managed to develop his own style and with a lot of character, his baby music of the rhymes from the street without abandoning the bucolic of the traditional Cuban son in the septet style.
Lo Tengo Pa' Ti - “Niño” Torrente
Consagración - “Niño” Torrente
On this disc, made in the style of 45 RPM with a track on each side, we hear two numbers: Consecration, a beautiful one, especially for the dancer and with a piano solo by the Puerto Rican Edsel Gomez, while the cut Te Hare Felizes a rhythmic cha cha cha with a solo from the Chilean Pablo Vergara in the organ. Likewise we highlight the Puerto Rican Chuito De Jesus in the soneos, Mauricio Smith Jr in the flute (in the cha cha cha) and Vicente "Little Johnny" Rivero in the percussion.
