EDITORS’ NOTES

Alex Matos adores the big-band grandeur of his '70s salsa heroes. Drawing heavily from the classic Fania era, the Dominican crooner's third album is full of endless grooves, all dramatically poised between elegance and ecstasy. The propulsive beat of "Como Lo Hizo?" transforms a sumptuous ballad into a majestic dance-floor epic, and the opulent glide of "Algo Contigo" gets a heart-pounding jolt of excitement whenever the horns kick in. Even his salsa romántica duet with Miriam Cruz manages to be tempestuous and tender all at once.
