"It's safe to say that Beny (or Benny as it is often spelled) Moré is still - and will probably always be - Cuba's favorite and most iconic vocalist whose influence was central to what we call salsa, a legacy still felt today. 'El Benny' was born Bartolomé Maximiliano Moré Gutiérrez, on August 24, 1919 in the rural hamlet of Santa Isabel de Las Lajas in the former province of Las Villas near Cienfuegos, and died in Havana on February 19, 1963. Beny occupies a unique position not only in the history of Cuba's music but also in the socio-political and cultural life of the island because despite major differences between detractors and believers in Castro's revolution, they can all agree he was the greatest sonero (improvising vocalist) of all, the original 'El Sonero Mayor'. Moré's appeal was, and remains, international, making him a trans-national ambassador of Caribbean Latin culture. Aside from the unique quality of expression, fluid execution and natural, warm timbre of his voice, there is something intangible and magical in Beny's sound that defies explanation and has its roots in Mother Africa. He was equally adept at most Cuban popular song genres, such as the mambo, bolero, son montuno, cha-cha-cha, and guaracha, all of which are represented here in this special collection. Many of his signature catchphrases, such as '¡Azúcar!' and '¡Ecua jé!' for instance, were later adopted by other singers. In this special compilation you can hear historical recordings made during his years lived in Mexico with the orchestras of Rafael de Paz, Ernesto Duarte, Mariano Mercerón, and Dámaso Pérez Prado until the impressive performances with his Giant Band in Cuba. Enjoy!" --Pablo "Bongohead" Yglesias Comes in 350 gram cardboard, reverse side print sleeve; Comes on 140 gram vinyl; Edition of 500.
