Fly Frankie from Fania this Friday. One of the most underrated. #frankiedante #orquestaflamboyan #promocopy #45friday #cotique #faniarecords

We lost a legend this morning. As a kid growing up Cheo was the only salsa played in my house. Although my mom wasn’t a salsera, she had a teenage crush on Cheo, as did half the Island and the Diaspora. A sonero’s sonero with one of the smoothest most flawless voices ever in salsa. I couldn’t decide which album was my favorite but I decided on “Steppin’ Out”. It features “A La Seis” which is one of my favorite tracks ever. It sounds and feels like Puerto Rico to me.  Next Thursday’s Pa’lante will be dedicated to him. Que Descanse en Paz maestro. #cheofeliciano #ripcheofeliciano #qdpcheofeliciano We lost a legend this morning.
