The greatest hits of the Mighty Latin Orchestra are released on a double album for the ALOSIBLA label. Two albums are included in this recording: one where the protagonist is the pianist, vocalist and Sicilian arranger Massimo Scalici (co-founder of La Maxima 79 and La Sabrosa Siciliana) and the other with the Havana singer and guitarist Fito Gress (Rodolfo Crespo Loredo) – founder of La Banda Del Puerto – as a featured artist. The assembly was formed in 2015 in Palermo (Italy) by Massimo and Fito.
Salsa and Bachata are included in both albums. For Her, previously performed by La Banda Del Puerto, orchestra in which Gress stands out as the main vocalist, opens the disc with a very sticky timba that will stop the dancers and unwary of the rumba. Your Love is a romantic number that presents the solo of Aldo Oliveri on the trumpet. The Son, a composition of the same Fito, is a homage to the root, the Cuban son and in this one we hear the successful improvisation of Fito Gress in the pregones. One of the songs recommended without a doubt. Dimelo Tu, a composition by Scalici, inaugurates the other album. You, a Ten Sharp composition popularized by Ten Sharp in rock, receives a treatment in sauce with a great arrangement of the same Scalici, and who also is in charge of singing it. Fragile, the well-known song of Sting, bridges with flamenco in an arrangement, again splendorous, of Scalici. Massimo De Maria stands out in the flamenco guitar and Aldo Oliveri in the fender. For You Lo Haria is a falling sauce and blow.
