Salsa Vibes

I took the liberty of remixing a classic salsa tune by late Fania recording artist Louie Ramirez, who's known in the boogaloo/salsa world as the "Quincy Jones of Salsa". "Salsa Vibes" appears on his 1978 release titled Louie Ramirez Y Sus Amigos.

Ramirez being highly regarded in Salsa, Boogaloo, and Latin Jazz, was a composer, percussionist, vibraphonist, and also a sideman and production assistant on many artists' recordings. He's worked with the likes of Willie Colon, Johnny Pacheco, both Charlie Palmieri and Joe Cuba in 1965 to 1968, and partnered with Tito Rodriguez to release Tito Rodríguez y Louie Ramírez En Algo Nuevo LP in 1972.
