It is a fact, the record debut of the Cuban singer Josbel Figurita, is here. With the suggestive title In Body and Soul, the resident in Switzerland proves that his was not random. His first promotional cuts -La Pirata and En Cuerpo y Alma (both included here- elucidated his desire to communicate and reach more public.) Supported by more than twenty musicians of the first level, Josbel recorded at La Clave Records by Cuban Luisito Aballe Alain Perez on bass, Edwin Sanz, Robert Vilera on percussion, Tony Velardi, Cesar Correa and Alex Wilson on piano as well as Oscar Cordero “Chucky” on trumpet, among others, were some of the instrumentalists who contribute their talent to the success of En Cuerpo y Alma
The talent of Figurita was more than demonstrated in recordings as San Agustin by Edwin Sanz; They are laughing at the world of the Cuban Carlitos Irarragorri, in Palatimba – calling the hit “Que Que Manda”, the Conjunto Salsometro by Luis Aballe and La Orquesta La Bohemia by Cristian González.
Woman of Another, written by Dampierret Mesa and Josbel himself, had already been recorded by Josbel with La Bohemia; Sobrevivire highlights the Venezuelan Edwin Sanz. Although the character of the album is above all romantic, we listen to De Alli, a beautiful theme that presents the Conjunto Salsometro by Luis Aballe and dedicated to the history of the largest of the Antilles. The First Time jammed Reich Avich in three.
Effusive, intimate and with an impeccable production they make of this recording an obligation for the lovers of the new tendencies of the sauce.
