PONLE SAZÓN - PAOLI MEJÍAS
Abriendo Camino (The Machete), an arrangement by Miguel Zenon, starts this recording in a decorous way. Ponle Sazon is a son montuno written by Paoli himself with the arrangement of Carlos Garcia. The old style with a sophisticated air and sticky choirs make this theme a gem for the salsoteca.
Paoli Mejias transcends salsa and Latin-jazz, his work can not be pigeonholed. Like an indomitable leon, the Puerto Rican conguero makes his way into the mountains with an unimagined force.
His album, precisely, Abriendo Camino comes to ratify that his work is not accidental. It is the result of his work and his inexhaustible talent, two elements that conquer summits.
