This collector's item for any salsa lover is now available digitally on all platforms.

"Though the record remained obscure during the 1970s and became a bargain bin cutout by the 1990s, it slowly gained a reputation over the years, especially in Colombia, where it was bootlegged and the original vinyl goes for top dollar. And thankfully now, for today’s digital audience, Ansonia Records has gone into the vaults to reissue this masterpiece of salsa dura, remastered for the first time from the original studio tapes in all its heavy duty glory, marking a very important chapter in Mister Estilo’s long and distinguished career." - Pablo Yglesias.

Available on Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music, and all other digital streaming platforms.

We're proud to re-release one of our first LPs, the 1956 record "Cha Cha Cha" from Johnnie Segui and His Orchestra.

Segui is one of the unsung bandleaders of Latin music history in NYC. While many musicians who played in his group went on to become household names in Latin music, Eddie and Charlie Palmieri, Mongo Santamaría, and Willie Bobo, Segui never reached that level of success.

"Cha Cha Cha" is the only LP to his name and ironically this rhythm wasn't even his specialty. At the insistence of Ansonia chief Ralph Pérez, who was eager to capitalize on the rising popularity of the cha cha, Segui restructured his conjunto and adapted to it.

Check out these vibrant cha cha chas and read Pablo Yglesias's comprehensive text on Bandcamp.
