There have been big changes in the Latin charts recently. Merengue no longer dominates. Nor do the old heavies or newcomers. What sells now is a rethink of classic salsa by musicians who have been sweating in other groups for years before blossoming: like Montanez, once El Gran Combo's lead singer. How are these musicians like him doing it? With a mix of freshness and chops.
