ROBERTO ROENA picture
Roberto Roena (born January 16, 1940 in Mayagüez, Puerto Rico) is a salsa music percussionist, orchestra leader, and dancer. Roena was one of the original members of El Gran Combo, Puerto Rico's first successful salsa music orchestra. He later became the leader of his own band, "Roberto Roena y Su Apollo Sound", arguably one of the best Latin salsa bands in Puerto Rico. Roena has also been a long-time member of the Fania All Stars, a salsa supergroup that has enjoyed worldwide success since the 1970s.

Born in the Dulces Labios neighborhood of Mayagüez, Roena took his first steps in the art of dance by staging dance routines with his brother Cuqui at his hometown. When Roberto was nine years old, his family settled in Santurce, where the brothers continued to refine their mambo and cha-cha-chá routines, delighting their public in talent contests. This led to their contract of weekly performances

ROBERTO ROENA Reviews

ROBERTO ROENA Roberto Roena Y Su Apollo Sound

Album · 1970 · Afro-Cuban Jazz
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Matt
Percussionist Roberto Roena’s second release and the first with his new band at the time in 1970 Apollo Sound (“Roberto Roena Y Su Apollo sound”) with each album afterwards being mainly titled by number reaching to ten but if you want to disagree there is an eleventh from the band but by then in 1982 they were named Super Apollo with the album “47:50”. As it was 1970 with this release we still have boogaloo included but the genre was on its last legs by this time with Salsa becoming the main. Not only that we have a couple of popular English songs included within as well and the addition “Sing A Simple Song” bringing it to three. This record is sorted after by the groove collectors these days and as time passes many Fania and other early Latin albums are long out of print with just the big ones primarily be re- released occasionally on record or cd. Due to the popularity in the return of records they are becoming scarcer with hen’s teeth easier to acquire in good condition and a lot cheaper.

“Tu Loco Loco, Y Yo Tranquilo” kicks things off with some quite crazy and not to calm Salsa with great piercing trumpet input from Mario Alvares Cora with quite a nice montuno from the coros not to long before the numbers ending. The following “Sing A Simple Song” was also included in the compilation that was released in 2000 “Broasted Or Fried” that concentrated on Boogaloo and Back Beats with this one on the Boogaloo side. More Salsa with “Consolacion” with the following “Sonando Con Puerto Rico” being a Bobby Capo penned number and of course if it is one of Bobby’s numbers it is a Bolero and quite a nice one at that. “El Escapularo” is percussion with congas opening and they remain the main driver throughout this Afro style song. The straight up Salsa is back for “El Sordo” and the following although titled “El Pato De La Bahia” is sung in English being Otis Redding’s “Dock Of The Bay” slightly Boogalooed up. Its Salsa for “El Barrio Sin Guapo” with another Bolero to follow for “Han Pasado Algunos Dias” with a quick tenor solo from Al Abreu inserted and the album finishes up with a cover of Blood Sweat and Tears “Spinning Wheel”.

Nice album but I feel the band were still finding their feet with better things still to come throughout their next nine releases. Still not at to an exorbitant price unlike Roberto’s first album “Se Pone Bueno”.

Apollo 11 was blasting off to the moon the same day Roberto Roena held his first rehearsal for his new band in 1969 and why not use that name especially if you are a Salsa band but this is no ordinary Salsa band as Roberto Roena's music contained a lovely modern, slightly different approach. Three trumpets were in this line-up, tenor saxophone and flute with one trombone used. Lenny Prieto was the pianist and he is still around today playing and arranging for the likes of Giberto Santa Rosa, Bobby Valentin, Victor Manuelle and Sonora Poncena. Another musician who was in Apollo Sound was Papo Pepin on congas who these days is nothing short of a legend having played with Machito, Tito Puente, Willie Colon to Mark Anthony and La India with nearly every other latin artist you can think of between those time spans. Efrain Hernadez is on bass and another that is still around but Sonora Poncena, Andy Montanez and The Puerto Rican All Stars are some of his stand outs. At this time Apollo Sound was going through a change in line up as the lead vocalist, saxophone player, trombonist all left and Carlos Santos was enlisted as the new lead vocalist with Tito Cruz. Four Coros, five different arrangers and strings as well on two songs being the title "El Progreso and "Necessito Llamar Su Atencion" There is a special guest and that is Papo Lucca on piano for five of the tracks and he was actually one of the co founders of Sonora Poncena as well as playing with many lumanaries such as Johnny Pacheco, Willie Colon, Celia Cruz, Bobby Valentin, Fania All Stars etc and arranged "Lamento De Concepcion" within the album. Roberto himself is on bongos of course with all the production duties on the album. "El Progresso" is number X or 10 in the list of Apollo Sound releases with a beautiful approach to the songs and when the strings are used in conjunction with the band we have that wonderful sweeping, sunshine sound applied to the track "Progreso" which was a hit for Roberto and the band during the albums time of release. Roberto applied a class to his music and a slightly different approach and although primarily Latin he still occasionally used elements of rock or pop within his compositions and always there was room for improvision giving us a more contempary style with his music and it is no wonder they were popular.

We kick off with "Regional Corazon" with an acappella intro before the band comes in and already you can hear Roberto's sound with the mix of horns and with a return to the acappella quickly the tune comes in with the montuno and Carlos Santos on vocals with the help of the brass gives the tune a real kick. The title is next being "El Progresso" and what a superb song it is with that seventies sweep and sunshine applied in equal amounts all over a wonderful rthymn and the chorus will have you hooked but perhaps the standout within the tune is Fransisco "Ito" Serrano on electric guitar and what a terrific feel he applies with that Wah Wah pedal putting time in with the rythmn section and a stunning result is the consequence and even though those timbales are hit only twice when they are at the front within the structure of the song it is another quick high point to this absolutely beautiful tune with those sweeping strings."Viva Cortijo" follows which was written by the great Bobby Capo and is Roberto's tribute to his friend and mentor Rafael Cortijo with a great mix of rthymns throughout the tune but it is the bomba at the end which has me jumping. Another highlight from the album is "Lamento De Concepcion" with its lyrics pertaining to the poverty of low paid workers with another beautiful smooth intro with Carlos Santos singing with that smooth manner over percussion primarily throughout the verse but when the coros make their entrance the tune immediately gathers momentum with a few more chorus's from the coros, the trumpet is what is riding the number with a lovely spaced out solo between the horns and rthymn section with plenty of drive. The Bolero is "Necessito Llamar Su Atencion" and the strings are back for the this little heart wrencher sung by Carlos Santos who was nothing short of expert with his smooth delivery and he sounds like he does mean it. There are another three songs within the album with the usual finesse comong from the band which is nothing short of a high standard which the entire album "El Progresso"is.

So many good albums Roberto Roena Y Su Apollo Sound recorded and this one is just another great one and as I mentioned above the title song for the album is simply stunning with the arrangements. One other note though is the edition issued in 2006 the booklet has the review and other information of his number 7 album "Lucky 7" which I do own and thought perhaps "El Progresso's" notes were in "Lucky 7" but no luck just "Lucky 7" notes again.
