From the first few notes, it sounds like the real thing. Piano and bass riff hard. Percussion enters. ¡Oiga Papa! Listen up! The trombones come in thick and strong. Fantasia, the first song on Quarter Street's self-titled LP is authentic 'salsa dura' from the old school. Hard salsa. It's not shiny, it's not clean and poppy or unduly jazzy. It's tough, it's gritty and ballsy, and in terms of musicianship, writing and production, it straight up cooks.
- The first throwback Salsa Dura record that picks up where Fania left off.
- Written and recorded by deciples of Willie Colon, Eddie Palmieri, Hector Lavoe and Ruben Blades
- Vinyl LP includes MP3 download card
