The Joe Cuba Sextet

Joe Cuba's music career started with La Alfarona X in 1950. In 1955 the Joe Cuba Sextet came into being and his vibraharp sound caught on. In 1962, when the group recorded "To Be with You" for Seeco Records, the band began to soar to popularity because of Nick Jimenez's arrangements and the vocals of Cheo Feliciano and Jimmy Sabater. When the boogaloo era arrived, the majority of the popular New York bands were put out of work. The Cuba sound changed with its recordings of "El Pito" and "Bang Bang"; it not only sold millions but enabled The Cuba sextet to enjoy the #1 spot in the Latin music world along with the Eddie Palmieri Orchestra. ~ Max Salazar, Rovi

Joe Cuba represents a watershed moment for the so called Salsa music craze. He and his band members were able to meld the Afro-Caribbe a n Diaspera with the African American struggles in urban America.

Joe Cuba, with the help of Nicky Jimenez, his phenomenal pianist and arranger, introduced the original "hard street sound" that sealed his greatness forever. The members of his sextet's were fabulous; Jimmy Sabater, Slim Cordero, Phil Diaz, Cheo Feliciano, Willie Torres and Roberto Berrios were the musicians that set the pace for the ensuing years leading up into the seventies. Roberto Berrios band was exceptionall y great, just as a side note.

I recorded 3 albums in the late 60's early 79's. My band was Roberto y su Nuevo Montuno. I shared the stage with Joe Cuba's group on several occasions. Wonderful times & great energy on stage, specially from Cheo who is still active.
