I grew up listening and dancing to this dúo in my young days and their virtuoso music has been indelibly in my heart and memory.
Thank you Richie and Bobby for this unforgetable great time given back then and now while my eyes are all teary.

Tuve el placer de conocer a Richie Ray y Bobby Cruz en un culto que dieron en el Campamento Sarzar, un centro correcional en Puerto Rico en 1977. Eran solamente ellos dos con Richie en el piano. Un recuerdo muy lindo de mi juventud

VAYA! ESTO ES EL EJEMPLO DE LA SALSA DURA, LOS CONOCEDORES DE ESTA CULTURA MUSICAL SABEN BIEN QUE EN LOS 60 Y PARTE DE LOS 70S ESTE GRUPO ESTABAN SOLOS, METIERON MANO DURO CON EL MOTUNO, DESCARGAS BOOGALOO Y JALA JALA, PARA LUEGO INTEGRARSE A LA SALSA DURA DURA DONDE DEEJARON UNA MARCA INBORRABLE. QUE VIVA LA SALSA PERO LA SALSA, SALSAAAAA.

I believe I read some where that both Ritchie and his brother Ray studied at the Brooklyn Conservatory Of Music in Park Slope Brooklyn. Its an awesome school! I studied classical piano there for 2 years. The classical piece that Ritchie plays in Sonido Bestial which is a Chopin Piece called Revolution is very hard to play. Not too many classical pianist can play that piece with precision...

Richie Ray is another original. Hailing from Brooklyn, he brought with him all the virtuoso skills from his classical training into the world of latin music. Borrowing his brother's first name, "Ray" Maldonado, a great trumpeter of that era, he went on to record and perform legendary sessions that will live forever. His protege'/sin g e r , Bobby Cruz, was the flip side of this winning combination.

Sin lugar a dudas, Dos de los mas grandes!!!I like Pandora to add Bobby's biography since Ray isn't Ray without Bobby and Bobby isn't Bobby without Ray. They have been inseparable and will be inseparable until the ultimate happens. Dios los bendiga!!!!

I'm surprised that nobody have left a comment about Richie and Bobby. Honor to be the first one. How can I said, pioneers of the boogaloo and that great sound of PR music brought to us and an inspiration to all salseros.
