El Son De Altura-Adalberto Álvarez y Su Son

£6.50£15.00

In keeping with his last two albums, el Son De Altura

contains one absolute killer dance track. El Melón, about a septuagenarian who hasn’t come to terms with his age, is a pacey complement to Los Van Van’s La Titimanía, but I prefer the former. It’s also a very rich arrangement, the most Timba like of the songs.
A Fox and Grapes tale, Tu Falta De Ortografía is also amusing, and a nice dance track. As far as Casino/Salsa goes, Vete also comes with my recommendation. Entre La Rumba y El Son is more of a Rumba based number and in keeping with the style of guests, Rumbatá, fuses rap with the folkloric base. Tasty.
Penned by Mercedes Valdés, Quién Será Mi Amor evokes the era of Arsenio Rodriguez and Conjunto Chappottín but while it’s perfectly pleasant I don’t feel it either develops or adds anything to the classic ‘40’s and ‘50’s Son. The rest is bread and butter to my mind, inoffensive and, in all honesty, fairly forgettable.
