More Info:

Grammy award winner & multi Grammy nominated Luisito Quintero grew up with the Latin American and African tradition of percussion. His father is just as much a percussionist as his uncle Carlos Nene Quintero and his cousin Roberto Quintero. He became a member of the Orquesta Simfonica de Venezuela, but soon appeared with ensembles such as Grupo Guaco and El Trabuco Venezolano and toured with Oscar D'Leon. He then moved to New York, where he initially worked with Latin jazz musicians such as Willie Colon, Eddie Palmieri, Tito Puente and Celia Cruz. He then turned to the fusion of jazz, funk, salsa and African music and performed with George Benson, Herbie Hancock, Ravi Coltrane and Toshiko Akiyoshi, but also with pop musicians such as Gloria Estefan and Marc Anthony. His album 'Percussion Maddness' was produced by Louie Vega & LQ and was released on BBE Records. Now re-released on Vega Records, with 4 new tracks also produced by Louie Vega. Will be released on a double pack vinyl in two parts. The second part is this 7' double pack. Enjoy the Brazilian, Jazz, African, House, & Afro-Cubano sounds of grand percussionist Luisito Quintero on this very special vinyl release.
