Image: 1611930 Willie Colón, who put his first full-length
record out at the early age of 17, is a
revered icon of salsa and bolero music,
composing and performing throughout
his career alongside the likes of Celia
Cruz, Soledad Bravo, Rubén Blades,
and even David Byrne of the Talking
Heads. His numerous collaborations
with vocalist Héctor Lavoe are
considered some of the greatest works
of Latin music of all time, and have
rendered a slew of gold and platinum
records. Critics tend to agree that one of
his finest works came in 1970, with the
release of Cosa Nuestra. Smooth and
brisk tracks like "Ausencia" and the
Latin club track "Che Che Colé" were
huge hits among New York's barrio
youths, bolstered by Lavoe's potent
vocal flair, and Colón's slick,
trombone-heavy production. It was their
first gold-selling record, and served to
cement the duo's legacy as
Latin music icons.
