A Pesar de Todo
Victor Manuelle became a salsa superstar on his self-titled album, and this follow-up took his career to the next level. Once again, hit-maker Sergio George produces infectious tracks that highlight Manuelle’s youthful exuberance and his improvisational interplay with his band. Above all, these tracks spotlight his romantic image. On "He Tratado," he pleads for love with a half-spoken verse, and then puts his sweetest notes into the chorus. And wait until he struts his way through the eight-minute finale, with its punchy horns and lively exchanges with the backup singers.
