Conjunto Canayon - Colection Series, Vol. 1 (Kanayon, 1998)


More Conjunto Canayon!! For my first Conjunto Canayon upload, A Las Millas, go here.

Not too much to say here. In 1998 the members of the defunct Conjunto Canayon got together and created their own label, simply titled Kanayon Records, and released this retrospective of their work, now out of print. You'll find cuts from A Las Millas, Criollo y Mas, and presumably Folkloriko Tropical, though I've never seen the tracklisting for the latter. Much of the stuff on here is standard Conjunto Canayon fare, which is to say that it's absolutely incredible son/salsa/cumbia with hints of jibaro (Puerto Rican folk music) mixed in. I would like to draw attention to the last cut, Tropical Jungle, another one of the Canayon jazz jams with a smooth groove and some really nice flute and horn lines, also a regular on my Latin Show.

Fans of my A Las Millas upload will love this rare glimpse into Canayon's other material. Enjoy!

Hi...interesting...regarding your comments on the Tempo 70 LP "El Primer LP". It's a matter of taste, you stated that it opened with a terrible Bolero (ballad?) in the voice of a horrible singer's voice. Well apparently you were not in Puerto Rico back in the early 70s. That horrible Bolero ("Tu y Yo") was a #1hit in PR and that singer (Carlitos Caacho) later integrated the Los Hispanos Quartet famous fot their vocal harmonies. Also I never knew that Bebu Silvetti lived in Puerto Ric (I was part of a group of music collectors) Your opinions are just that YOUR OPINION but anyway I respect them...Intersting Blog...Carlos
