Without qualification, Ricardo Ray was the most prodigious talent of the Nuyorican scene that birthed the boogaloo sound in 60's New York. He's an unrivaled eclectic whose work reflects an equal command of rock, jazz, R&B and latin. Ray has gone on to a stellar career in the segregated latin music scene, although he was the tree that fell in the forest of the world that no one heard. Tuff City's Andale imprint is proud to present one more release from his formative Fonseca years.
Originally rooted in hip-hop, Tuff City has transitioned its focus toward rescuing thousands of blues, jazz, funk, soul and R&B treasures from obscurity, thus creating several specialized reissue imprints devoted to music of the highest caliber.
