Luisito Quintero Percussion Madness
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: BBE-Rapster
Cutting his teeth touring with Louie Vega's Elements of Life band, Venezuelan percussionist Luisito Quintero covers seriously diverse terrain on his debut. After the localized, tribal Latin rhythms of the first two tracks, he launches into a Fela accolade worthy of Nigerian honors; from there he enters the dancefloor (little surprise as Vega is producer) through mambo and R&B. Most impressive is the range of forms Quintero so effortlessly blends. His hands move with such rapidity and poise as to suggest a rather controlled and enjoyable madness.
