SEGUIDA is a name that is very recognizable to the ardent Latin music aficionado. From their inception in 1972, Fania Record artists, Seguida had paved the way for the genre of Latin Rock to blossom. Their distinctive “East Coast” Afro-Cuban-Salsa-Rock sound grew out of the barrios of the Bronx, NY and has continued to delight audiences all over the world in present times. Included as part of the “Fania All Stars,” Seguida has toured extensively throughout the country spreading their infectious sounds of Latin-Rock-Jazz as they shared the stage with such great Latin music stars as Larry Harlow, Eddie Palmieri, Hector LaVoe, Willie Colon, and the list goes on…Their two albums on the Fania Music Label (Love is…Seguida, & On Our Way To Tomorrow…Seguida) still continue to enjoy record sales all over the world...

Rebirth of SEGUIDA author: Tom Kitts Phd--

Seguida III carries forward the legacy of this pioneering Latin fusion band, remaining consistent with Seguida’s vision and yet pushing the music forward. The difference with the early Seguida albums is in the much more polished production of III. “We were kids then,” explains Steve adorno. Although the sometimes ragged productions of the early albums held an appeal to rock listeners, Adorno wanted a more sophisticated but still earthy sound. “I worked with recording engineer Jay Henry to create a great sound and to give audiophiles a bang for their buck,” explains Steve Adorno. “We worked on the mixing for three months.” The result is a well-crafted, tightly melded orchestration of sounds and moods. Seguida III is a strong return to form of a band that has been absent too long and under recognized for its achievement. That may change however when Seguida will be featured on a PBS film documentary based on Jim McCarthy and Ron Sansoe’s wonderful book, “Voices of Latin Rock”. While we await forthcoming gigs, we can sit content with Seguida III, a solid achievement, marking the exciting rebirth and continuation of the Seguida legacy.

SEGUIDA - On Our Way To Tomorrow CD (Fania 501), Released 1976; Re-Issued 2005 Editor's Pick: Big production Latin soul/disco release from 1976. A lot of talent was part of this release: Eddie Montalvo, Nestor Torres, Bill Watrous, Peter Nater, Steve Adorno, Jorge Dalto and many others. I especially liked the track "Buscando," arranged by producer Randy Ortiz. This one is less disco and more straight up Latin soul. Same for the mostly instrumental "Om Marrero," with its Malo feel (Louie Pérez on guitar) and touch of the psychedelic. Recommended.

The NuYorican Funk Experience: Raw Latin Funk Direct From NYC Import CD (Nascente 100), Released 2003; Editor's Pick: From the liners... “New York City became the focal point for Latin music due to the emergence of Fania records and their popularization of all styles of Latin music under the single banner of ‘Salsa’. A portion of the music being made was a cross-fertilization of Soul, Funk, R&B and Jazz with the more traditional Latin sounds..” Recommended.

Volume II of ‘The NuYorican Funk Experience’ joins the dots, fills the gaps, and generally makes good: Azucar, baby!” Recommended.

Blues - Eddie Palmieri 10:09 The NuYorican Funk Experience: Raw Latin Funk Direct From NYC Import CD (Nascente 100), Released 2003; Editor's Pick: From the liners... “New York City became the focal point for Latin music due to the emergence of Fania recor ds and their popularization of all styles of Latin music under the single banner of ‘Salsa’. A portion of the music being made was a cross-fertilization of Soul, Funk, R&B and Jazz with the more traditional Latin sounds. Most of the music was ignored at the time but has endured to this day for a new audience of DJs and record buyers who dig the original sounds that were being created.” Recommended.

English lyrics, hot horn hits, raw Latin percussion and soul vocals all combine to create a disgracefully impure but quite irresistible. In these fifteen cuts "Latin Soul" covers the spectrum from the sweet sounds of Joe Bataan and the TNT Boys to the rawer, sock- boogaloo style of Seguida and Ray Barretto. Soul,Funk, Salsa, jazz, Rock….on the streets of latin NEW YORK CITY, something was sturring – and it wasn’t just the fire hydrants. Black hornplayers riffed on psychedelic tunes against Puerto Rican Vocalist, Whist Cuban congueros held down the backbeat. The brothers called it “Latin Soul”, the ricans called it “ Boogaloo”… its all here!
