In our second podcast, we feature a selection of tracks from the latest Fania release, Tito Rodríguez: A Man and His Music El Inolvidable, including his career-defining hit “Mama Güela,” as well as “Blen, Blen, Blen,” “Cara de Payaso,” and many others. Also, these tracks have been digitally remastered from the original master tapes.
With the best musicians in New York City (including on some tracks the legendary bassist Cachao and pianist / arranger René Hernández), the sheer quality of this timeless music will remind longtime fans of his astonishing work and will also attract a new generation of listeners.
This compilation, selected by the well-known New York discographer Harry Sepúlveda, focuses on years when Rodríguez’s dance band starred at the legendary Palladium (where many of the tracks were recorded), as well as the high points of his mega-successful international career as a chart-topping singer of romantic songs.
