***Peruvian pianist ALFREDO “SABOR” LINARES is a legend—a cult figure—long recognized throughout Latin America as one of the creators of salsa music. He started out recording Afro Latin jazz in the late ‘60s, with two solo LPs and guest piano and arrangement work for both Coco Lagos and El Combo de Pepe. In the early ‘70s, he moved to Cali in Colombia, and became heavily involved in what developed into the Salsa scene. Fast forward to 2007: Linares' profile was given a boost outside of Latin America following guest piano appearances on The Quantic Soul Orchestra recordings and his show-stopping performances in their accompanying live shows. Linares' records have been published in several countries, and on many, many labels... although not always under his name. Case in point, Linares' Salsa a Todo Sabor... album: it was recorded in late 1972 for the IEMPSA label in Peru, and released by them in 1973; it was also released in Colombia that same year; but in the U.S. it was released by the Audio Latino label) under the name of Madison Orchestra, and re-titled: A Lot of Salsa—Rhythm in the Alley, with a new cover, and with two tracks removed. Not at all confusing. And the music? a scorching combination of danceable Latin Jazz and Afro-Cuban music. The rhythms of boogaloo and Latin soul are there in profusion, with the piano and bass carrying the groove. Then the rhythm changes: from boogaloo to salsa, as well as to guaracha and guaguancó. Includes two bonus singles tracks. Packaged with the original Peruvian album cover art and includes a booklet with text in Spanish and English.
