    Hey Everyone...im having Trouble Finding any of Javier Vazquez Mp3's ...does neone have ne ....and would you share?...or if not tell me where to get his music????
  2. Javier Vazquez was the main arranger for Ismael Rivera y Los Cachimbos... So you'll find many of his most popular works there. Prior to tha he was one of the backbones for La Sonora Matanzera. Javier did his own record - Javier Vazquez y su salsa "la verdad", a must have for all hard core salseros! He also produced one Adalberto Santiago and one Junior Gonzalez record... rather uneventful but if you're a collector you might find a couple of musical pearls there...

    Great works of his include - Se formo La Rumbantela, La China De Mi Barrio, Siguelo. With Maelo... Do I really have to name them?

    Agree 100%, a fantastic album. Most of the nights, I play at least 2 or 3 songs from that CD,

    Fantastic but hardly available. Couldn't find any internet store that still has it.

    Maybe my friend will find it in NY.
  5. Last I saw during that whole Fania selloff to Emusica, it was available on CD.

    Both albums (La Verdad & Javier Vazquez Y Su Salsa) with his band are sick!

    They are both available at Cholo's Record Store in the Bronx New York.
  8. Isn't Javier Vazquez y su salsa "La Verdad" one record? Is there another Javier Vazquez record?
  9. borikenSalsero

    borikenSalsero Rhythm Deputy

    No it's not. He had one self title album plus the second titled la verdad and a third something with montuno in the title. I own the first two...
  10. Really? I own the one with the broads on the floor playing cards.

    I picked his stuff up in Harlem a few years ago so you can probably still get the CDs at the usual spots.
  15. borikenSalsero

    Yeah, I got the first 2 form Cholo's at the bronx. Wanted to check online to see if I could find them so that retprep can get his hands on them.

    As an alternative, perhaps he can call one of the record stores in NYC and pay for the CD over the phone and have it mailed to him.

    Source of CD titles

    Here's the best: it's used by iTunes for song titles and so on:

    He has only 2 albums there:

    Javier Vasquez / Salsa Y Montuno

    Javier Vasquez Y Su Salsa / Javier Vasquez Y Su Salsa

    Hi all:

    Javier has at least 5/6 solo albums some of which are only available on LP.

    1) La VErdad on Tico/Fania
    2) Javier y su salsa on mericana
    3) Javier y su sonido 81 LP
    4) Javier presenta Fonzi Cruz - 1980s LP
    5) Javier y su salsa con Wuelfo on TEca LP (part of which is on the compilation Salsa y Montuno on CD)

    6) also Linda Leida w Javier Vazquez is basically a Javier Album

    Also, javier appears on tons of albums as ana arranger and band leader.
    He is one of the most influential and important musicians in salsa (in my humble opinion).
    e.g. almost all of Maelo's albums with Sus Cachimbos, many sonora matancera albums, chihuahua y su all stars on Fonseca records, yoyito cabrera, and many more....

    Recently bought Javier y su salsa on CD, a bit disapointed with the sound quality, its quite 'scratchy'
