The GREAT Ray Baretto

Truly latin jazz has lost a great legend. I grew up listening to this tremendous force that was BARETTO and as a "NEWYORICAN" he made me feel like I was listening to the sounds of all my ancestors and it made me feel so special to be a part of this thing that came from all of us, The "salsa" sound. He truly made the congas speak to everyone's soul. I had the pleasure of watching this superstar perform on several occasions and everytime I did, he left me feeling better than the last time. Que Dios te tenga en sus brazos. Hasta luego maestro.

I as born in the barrio and I useed to play music in the same curcuit as Ray and the great Hector Lavoe. I'm 54 years old and I still play although not with any professionalizim. I just found out about Barretto and I felt so out of touch with my past. I always admired him and I recall the last I saw him so many years ago on a platform on Tremont Avenue in the Bronx where we exchanged in small coverstion about music... I will always miss your artistry. Your friend John Suri del Barrio...
