about

In his third album on the Fonseca Label and ¡Andale!'s second reissue of Ray's material, Ricardo Ray's talent became evermore expansive. Ray again reprises his role as bandleader of a group of young street salsa players and vocalist Bobby Cruz. On this album, Ray covers the entire spectrum of Brooklyn Nuyorican music, from songs that lament the Cuba of memory to the assimilation of the Black struggle in New York. The disc features descargas, boleros, guarachas, guaguancos, son montunos and jazz mambos. Years ahead of his time, 3 Dimensions shows Ray formalizing genre and inventing new ones at once.
