To Benny Moré
Benny Moré (Bartolomé Maximiliano Moré Gutiérrez, 24 August 1919 ? 19 February 1963), or Beny, was a Cuban singer. He is often thought of as the greatest Cuban popular singer of all time. He was gifted with an innate musicality and fluid tenor voice which he colored and phrased with great expressivity. Moré was a master of most genres of Cuban music, such as theson montuno, mambo, guaracha, and bolero. In particular, it is unusual for a singer to be equally proficient at both the fast rhythms (e.g. guaracha) and the slower rhythms, such as the bolero. Moré also formed and led the leading Cuban big band of the 1950s, until his death in 1963.. Benny Santos, a voice very similar to Benny More, he does not initiate, he is what he is,authentic, original andgenius. among his hits are Yiri Yiri Bon, Pachito Eche, Camerrera del amor, Rumberos de ayer, Batanga, cienfuegos, La voz de calle, Eligue tu y canto yo which are all recorded in this album.
