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...
AwardsLatin New York Magazine "Best Latin Rock Album."
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.
