The Reason After recording many albums, have made many tributes and collaborated with various artists in the world of Latin music I thought, it is time to make an album with songs that shows as I am. Here you will hear Gerardo Rosales musician, percussionist, composer, arranger, producer and someone who knows a lot of salsa culture.

 "Salsa Vintage" New Album 2016  
What you’ll hear on this record comes from the experiences from my live, all this years. Salsa Vintage is a reflection of a life dedicated to Salsa Dura. 


Participants I am grateful to Manuel Torcatt who transcribed each song and enrich them with his contribution, we shared together all the arrangements. Musicians and singers who participated in Vintage Salsa have given the best of their talent to make this musical work very special. Ebeth Gallardo gave me the impetus to make this album a reality, thanks to her organization and enthusiasm. José Mendoza, mixed this record, hi is specialist in analog recordings. He worked as a sound technician in studies of TH in Venezuela when recording taped to the Dimension Latina, who better than him to give Vintage sound to this album. 

The Sound to be faithful to sound Vintage in this recording we used acoustic piano, Fender Rhodes and Wurlitzer piano, baby bass, two trombones, congas and bongo wooden cow hides, bells made in the 70s, an old LP timbales, leather maracas from Pan con Queso, natural güiro. We recorded the base congas, bongo, bell piano bass and trombones we recorded it all together the 11th of February 2016 at Power Sound Studio, Amsterdam. Power Sound Studio is analogous with microphones from 60s and 70s. After that we traveled personally to Spain, Venezuela and Colombia where we recorded the guests and choirs like Freddy Ramos and Joaquin Arteaga of Tromboranga, Marcial Isturiz, Maite Hontele and more. 

The Style In this album there are different rhythms Cha Cha Cha, Son Montuno, Salsa Dura and Guaguanco. Although they are original songs we want to return, the sound of Eddie Palmieri, Mon Rivera, Los Dementes, La Dimension Latina and Willie Colon. I have been careful in the concept of percussion using on some of the song timbales and congas and other songs bongo and conga to give the ensemble sound to this album, there is a song in this album with the influence of Afro Venezuelan mixed with Salsa to give a different touch to the Album and there is also a song in orchestra format with two additional trumpet.
