El Conde was for many years lead singer, and a major contributor to the success, of Johnny Pacheco's sensationally popular conjunto. In this tight new release he remains a model of the sonero, with a voice and a style both imposing and flexible. He is backed by a super-crisp conjunto of old friends, including Hector Zarzuela on trumpet and pianist Papo Lucca.
