SE LLAMA SABROSO (They Call it Tasty) by Zona Franka (a zona franca is a duty-free port) is an exciting introduction of a style called "Changüí con flow", a fusion of traditional rural changüí with rap and other urban Cuban music. As the name of the group implies, various musical styles from around the Americas are also featured. The songs are Cuban classics re-imagined in fresh, clever and innovative new arrangements that far differ from the original versions.
Beyond Salsa Piano is a history and anthology of the role of the piano in the Cuban rhythm section – from its first appearance to the present. In a broader sense, it’s a study of the tumbao – the art of creating music from layers of repeating rhythmic and melodic phrases. Whether these syncopated figures are called tumbaos, guajeos, montunos, riffs or vamps, this Afro-Cuban concept lies at the heart of nearly every popular music genre from salsa to rock , funk, R&B, hiphop and jazz.

While presented as a set of method books, the series doubles as a history course and record collecting guide for listeners, dancers, and players of instruments other than the piano.

Perhaps the most important goal of the series is to provide a comprehensive understanding of how tumbaos are constructed, their central role in the texture of Latin music of all eras, and the endless possibilities they provide for creative composing and arranging.

More pop than timba, Danny's impeccable voice graces different tropical styles -balada, cha-cha, son, salsa, flamenco, popular- and proves he can do it all.

Though not the straight-up timba we would expect from this ex-Chanraguero, this record provides a spectacular outlet for Danny's other vocal styles and abilities. Lest we forget that he writes all the music, his impeccable voice really lends itself to black soul and R&B sounds made popular in the US. The influences are undeniable. Also at ease with NY-style salsa, Danny swings on the dance tunes and graces us with the ballads, both modern and traditional. If you already own 'Tanto Le Pedi' and enjoy the new sounds of Bachata, 'Lo Mejor De Mi Corazon' is a great addtion to your Lozada collection.

After 1999, Danny played sporadically in Havana and made another album, "Lo Mejor De Mi Corazón", which was a mixture of some timba and various forms of pop. In 2005 he moved to Miami, and in 2007 played his first West Coast tour, which was documented in great detail on His performing and bandleading abilities are second to none and seeing him in concert is a must for any red-blooded timbero!
