THE PRIDE that Ray Barretto felt for his roots and the respect he
always professed to Puertorican musicians inspired the production of Ray's last CD entitled "Standards Rican-Ditioned," a message to the world over the sensibility, preparation and knowledge of Jazz by Boricua talent.

Quietly, in November, Barretto entered the studio and recorded
alongside Hilton Ruiz (piano), David Sánchez (tenor sax), Papo
Vázquez (trombone), John Benítez (acoustic bass), Adam Cruz (drums)
and his son Chris (alto sax) on a sequence of jazz classics from the
Swing and Be-Bop eras, such as "Suddenley It's Spring," "Baby, Baby All the Time," "Strange Music," "Ivy," "I Had the Craziest
Dream," "Lover Man," "Say Something to Live For," "Lean On Me" and "Blues In E Flat."

The release of "Standards Rican-Ditioned," originally programmed for the month of June, should be sped up for release during the week of the 29th of April, in which Barretto would have turned 77 years old.

•WHICH ARE the 12 favorite songs of Ray Barretto during his tenure
with Fania? They appear on the cd "Ray at His Best," which has yet to be released.

"This album represents the essence of my life and career as a Fania
artist", Barretto explains in the CD liner notes in where the
following vocalists are presented: Ray de la Paz, Adalberto Santiago,
Tito Allen, Tito Gómez and Rubén Blades with their interpretations
of "Fuerza gigante," "Oye la noticia," "El hijo de Obatalá," "Vine pa' echar candela" and "Canto abacuá," amongst others.

"The material included represented different versions of my orchestra
in their most creative moments", Ray commented of the sequence of
such songs as "Acid" and Cocinando," as well as an original
composition "Mi dedicación," inspired while in Puerto Rico.

If there's a Salsa CD of Barretto's discography that his fans should
obtain as soon as possible it is the "Ray at His Best," featuring the reunion of virtuosos as Roberto Rodríguez, Orestes Vilató, Tony
Fuentes, Ray Romero, Johnny Rodríguez, Ralph Irizarry, Andy
González, Salvador Cuevas, Luis Cruz, Gil López, Eddie Martínez,
Oscar Hernández and other great arrangers and instrumentalists.

They are the favorite songs of the "Indestructible" Conga player and
each listen feels like having Barretto himself by your side.
