He is one of the most successful and respected artists on the salsa music scene with a recording history that includes more than 25 albums. Alberto first received international attention in 1977 as the lead vocalist of the ground-breaking ensemble TPICA73 on recordings that include Salsa Encendida (1978), Charangueando con La Tpica73 (1980) and Into the 80s (1981). After being featured as a vocalist on Louie Ramirez 1982 production Noche Caliente, the first album to give popular Spanish ballads an uptempo treatment, Jos Alberto became a major Latin star. Forming his own group in 1983, he recorded three albums on the Sono Max label titled Tpicamente (1984), Canta Canario (1985) and Latino Style (1986). He had an international smash-hit album in 1988 with Sueo Contigo and followed up a year later with Mis Amores, also a chart topper. In the 90s, Alberto recorded several hit recordings including Dance with Me (1991) produced by GRAMMY winner Sergio George in the (then) new Salsa Romntica style, followed by Lleg la Hora (1992) with the world-wide hit tracks Nada se Compara Contigo and Disclpeme Seora. In 1994 he recorded De Pueblo y Con Clase and in 95, the album On Time, notably featuring a duet with the undisputed Queen of Salsa, Celia Cruz, with whom he frequently toured. His 1997 Tributo a 2016Machito featured guest GRAMMY winners Tito Puente and Dave Valentn. In 2011, Albertos album Original was nominated for a GRAMMY award and he won a 2013 Latin GRAMMY Award as a featured vocalist on Sergio George Presents Salsa Giants. Recent recordings include Intimamente Salsero Live (2012), Romantico y Rumbero (2014) and 2015s Latin GRAMMY-winning Best Traditional Tropical Album Tributo A Los Compadres: No Quiero Llanto. In May of 2018, El Canario released his latest album Salsa Con Invitados, and on November 15th, 2018, he was honored with the GRAMMY for Best Traditional Tropical Album for his release with El Septeto Santiaguero entitled A Mi Qu- Tributo a los Clsicos Cubanos.Timbalero extraordinaire DON PERIGNON and his Puerto Rico-based band La Orquestra Puertorriquea have been delighting salsa dancers and fans for more than 35 years alike with their tight rhythm section and captivating vocal arrangements.
