Johnny Colon – June 16, 2018

Johnny Colon  -  Museo del Barrio  -  June 16, 2018

When you say “boogie-down Bronx” (as I hope you do), you are partially referencing the work of Colon, who was one of the originals of the breakout boogaloo craze of the early 1970′s.  He has kept on keepin’ on, for which we should be grateful.  The full power of his arranging talents requires a sizeable ensemble, so our gratitude continues, as these guys were definitely up to the task. The man himself didn’t touch the trombone (his blowing instrument), but so what!  His vocals were right in the slot, plus he needed to tend to some conducting duties.  He did bust loose on timbales towards the end.

NOTE:  I’m still waiting for Colon to provide the names of players before posting images.
