Product Description & Reviews
This album, A Band and Their Music, pays tribute to Sonora Poncena native scene, Ponce, Puerto Rico. This is also where the name known around the world originated, ''La Sonora Poncena.'' Their fame and success are due largely to the contributions of Papo Lucca Jr., who took the band over from his father, Don Quique Lucca. Papo ''Lucca'' Jr., a consummate musician and arranger, made variedand significant contributions to the band, like experimenting with a totally new fusion of modern Cuban styles and jazz. The band gained fame in 1960 while traveling to New York to give a series of performances in which the group cemented its position as one of the most highly demanded bands among Hispanic fans.The success of the band's first album was the preamble to a total of 32 albums, which have stood out for not only their content, but for the artwork on the covers, which have been considered veritable works of art that reaffirmed the band s leadership from the very beginning. Over the span of two CDs and 30 tracks, we have distilled the very essence of one of the jazziest, funkiest and most elegant orchestras ever to grace the landscape of Afro-Caribbean music. Fania is proud to make this well-deserved addition to the best selling Band/Man and His Music series.
