The duo's sessions for the Alegre, Tico and Vaya labels are a treasure trove of salsa gems, the albums that they recorded following showcase Christian swing at its most original, with a more mature Richie Ray fusing Afro-Caribbean rhythms with novel elements of jazz and classical Naučit Ću Te Mala - Darko Domijan - Naučit Ću Te Mala. Richie and Bobby met as teenagers, growing together in Brooklyn.
Their mothers, Cristina and Goyita, worked at a factory together. Bobby, on the other hand, discovered the feeling of bolero and the cadence of island culture during his childhood in Hormigueros, a tiny village on the Southeast corner of Puerto Rico. In Brooklyn, they were bewitched by the spell of music and the realities of the street, at a time when young Latinos had to join a gang if they wanted to survive racial discrimination and violence towards Hispanics, particularly those of Puerto Rican origin.
Richie, trained in classical music at the Juilliard School Of Music, was the quiet one. Bobby, the leader of an orchestra where he played guitar and bass, knew more about life. Together, they contributed to the development of salsa, a term used in the late '60s to describe the irresistible music that the duo was making during the era of the boogaloo and the shing-aling. Bobby wrote the lyrics. Ricardo did the music and orchestrations. They were soon known as the Kings of Salsa.
Most would agree that in its early New York days, the orchestra saw some of the finest musicians of salsa and jazz. What is truly indisputable is that the most astounding lineup of the Richie Ray Orchestra was the very one that recorded "El Bestial Sonido" inconfirming what everybody already knew: the best instrumentalists in the history of salsa have been Puerto Rican.
It was musical success that consecrated Richie as the most multifaceted pianist, arranger, composer, and orchestra director of his genre. Aside from achieving cultural transcendence by integrating distant musical forms, El Bestial Sonido is an album with unquestionable sociological value. Inthe country was tormented by the boricua blood being spilled throughout Vietnamese jungles in a conflict that enshrouded hundreds of Puerto Rican families in grief and polarized the country on the question of whether to support the United States in the Vietnam War.
At a time when many criticized the superficiality of salsa, Richie and Bobby proved with Blades' composition that they could use music to make people dance — or to make them reflect on Cuando Me Digas Que Sí - Ricardo Ray & Bobby Cruz - El Diferente. With El Bestial Sonido, Richie and Bobby Cuando Me Digas Que Sí - Ricardo Ray & Bobby Cruz - El Diferente stepped to the forefront by being Cuando Me Digas Que Sí - Ricardo Ray & Bobby Cruz - El Diferente first to adapt romantic ballads to the genre.
After Richie's experiments with female vocalists such as Nydia Caro and Carmen Soto, it was clear that Miki was the singer this orchestra had been looking for.

By the time they released "Back To Back" inthe dynamic Nuyorican duo of keyboardist Richie Ray and vocalist Bobby Cruz were fully devoted to the dissemination of Christianity through the feverish Johnsons Love - Dwight Yoakam - dwightyoakamacoustic.net of Afro-Cuban music.
The combination of Elbchaussee - Various - Sub Rosa vs. Kompakt religious messages with salsa is not exactly something you encounter every day. Add to it the Hollywood (Africa) - Various - Bright Lights 18 Alternative Greats influence in the keyboard playing of Richie Ray, who is always ready to borrow bits and pieces from his favorite masterpieces and turn them into salsa songs, and the result is an idiosyncratic sound brimming with personality and melodrama.
It is interesting to note that the partnership between Ray and Cruz blossomed before they converted to Christianity. Ray became a born again Christian inand for a while it seemed as if his decision would result in the permanent split of the duo. But Cruz soon followed Ray's example. Brass and percussion emphasize the majestic mood of the piece until the song erupts into a soulful chorus that combines male and female vocals. The soulful female choruses are a trademark of the entire session, courtesy of Ray's wife Angie Maldonado and Cindy Grohowski.
An impassioned Cruz vows not to forget the divine even though the manifestation of God may take a while to actually take place. Regresa ya que no soporto tu ausencia, he sings. Come back, Your absence is unbearable.
A smoldering timbales solo adds combustion to a tune that burns with the same power as Fania's non religious material. On El Sonido de la Bestia, a record released two years before "Back To Back," Ray and Cruz had demonstrated that they knew how to bring an album to its conclusion with an epic sort of feeling. The duo focuses on the current sociopolitic events of the time by mentioning the Falklands war, then unleashes an implacable chorus: Y la tierra va a temblar.
And the earth will tremble. The duo's prophecy is biblical, sure enough, but the earth did indeed shake in on the strength of the piano solo that closes the record. Christian music has something of a reputation for sounding didactic, even a bit harmless. With "Back To Back," the inimitable Richie Ray and Bobby Cruz proved that they could deliver a thoughtful religious message and a dynamite Afro-Caribbean session-- all in the same album.
For Christian salsa fans, it's the best of both worlds. Regresa ya que no soporto tu ausencia, nos canta. Un explosivo solo de timbales le agrega gasolina a un Cuando Me Digas Que Sí - Ricardo Ray & Bobby Cruz - El Diferente que tiene el mismo fuego que el material no religioso de la Fania.

There were many discussions about which musical groups would be chosen to liven up this significant occasion, and I remember there was cause for celebration when two important salsa bands were selected. One was headed by a young percussionist and dancer by the name of Roberto Roena, the other by an incredible pianist who had captivated my musical interest: the New York boricua Ricardo Maldonado, known by his stage name, Richie Ray.
First, I think it is important to talk about the origins of the name Richie Ray. Richie who was only 13 at the timeRay, and bassist Bobby Cruz fronted the band. Of course, Ray Maldonado continued to be an integral part of the band. However, it is also important to explain how Richie and Bobby found themselves at a spiritual crossroads. That was when we started looking for God. The salsa band was also one of the first to document their journey to Jesus Christ. After more than two decades on the salsa scene, the musicians have found their true calling, and now the salsa of Richie Ray and Bobby Cruz serves God.
Richie and Bobby also told me that an interview they did with famed Venezuelan disk jockey Phideas Danilo Escalona had a lasting impact on the name of the musical genre salsa. Richie told me that Escalona interviewed the pair before one of their concerts in Venezuela, and asked them what they called the music they played, since it was possessed of such strong classical, rock, and jazz influences. Masucci, who was looking for an act to promote the wide variety of musical genres that comprised the sound of Fania on the international market, immediately made up his mind.
The rest Clearly, these musicians have served both Afro-Caribbean music and Jesus Christ very well. En primera instancia me parece que es importante analizar la procedencia del nombre de Richie Ray.
El resto es salsa. The story of Ricardo Ray and Bobby Cruz can be easily divided into two chapters: before and after their conversion to Christianity.
The duo's discography could easily yield two separate CDs in the La Herencia series. If their sessions for the Alegre, Tico and Vaya labels are a treasure trove of salsa gems, the albums that they recorded following showcase Christian swing at its most original, with a more mature Richie Ray fusing Afro-Caribbean rhythms with novel elements of jazz and classical music. Together, they contributed to the development of salsa, a term that was used in the late '60s by Venezuelan radio DJ Phidias Danilo Escalona to describe the irresistible music that the duo was making during the era of the boogaloo and the shing-aling.
Goodbye To Salsa Richie and Bobby have stated in numerous interviews that they enjoyed fortune, women, pleasure and fame. Richie converted inand Bobby followed a few months later. It was a radical change. Christ had touched their hearts, filling their souls with unprecedented amounts of peace and joy. The two men separated in the late '80s, so that they could each focus on his own ministry. This event marked his return to secular salsa, albeit with subtle changes in Higher And Higher - Various - The Great British Beat - Volume Three lyrics of his repertoire.
Their first secular studio album in almost three decades came out in Enjoy it. Richie y Bobby se conocieron en su adolescencia, al crecer juntos en un vecindario de Brooklyn.
