ABOUT

Seguida…To follow quickly without interruption

SEGUIDA is a name that is very recognizable to the ardent Latin music aficionado. From their inception in 1972, Fania Record artists, Seguida had paved the way for the genre of Latin Rock to blossom. Their distinctive "East Coast" Afro-Cuban-Salsa-Rock sound grew out of the barrios of the Bronx, NY and has continued to delight audiences all over the world in present times. Included as part of the "Fania All Stars," Seguida has toured extensively throughout the country spreading their infectious sounds of Latin-Rock-Jazz as they shared the stage with such great Latin music stars as Larry Harlow, Eddie Palmieri, Hector LaVoe, Willie Colon, and the list goes on…Their two albums on the Fania Music Label (Love is…Seguida, & On Our Way To Tomorrow…Seguida) still continue to enjoy record sales all over the world.
Present day bandleader/producer/composer/drummer, Steve Adorno has rekindled the band and brought a mixture of original and new members together to record a third CD just recently released September 7, 2007 for the independent label Onroda Records. Seguida III…is a journey into the future for this well established band of musicians. Produced by the team of Steve Adorno/Jay Henry, Seguida III brings tradition plus new innovations to the genre of Latin Alternative music. Seguida enthusiasts will also be happy to see several brass arrangements by the original "El Patron" of Seguida, Randy Ortiz. Continuing with their tradition of using English vocals and Spanish Soneros to top off a hot salsa-soul-rock feel has proven to be a successful formula for Seguida, and it continues on with Seguida III. This CD also combines flavors of R&B, Hip-Hop, & Jazz to round out the new sounds of Seguida and signifies a pathway into the future for this very dynamic band.
Along with original founding member & guitarist/composer Louie Perez, vocalist/composer Lori Rose, the newly formed Seguida is powered by a very talented lineup of seasoned musicians. Included here are well known trumpet player Pete Nater, bass player Wally Irizarry, and Gregory Rahiim Press on keyboards. Vocalist Anthony Leon, Julian Meyers on woodwinds, Jose Davila on trombone, Willie Olenick on trumpet, Congero Pito Castillo and Carlos go-go Gomez on timbales, round out Seguida's live show.
Seguida III boasts special guest performances on the new CD from artists such as Latin music star Larry Harlow, and Latin singing sensation Kevin Ceballo courtesy of Universal Latino Records. Up & coming new artists, rapper Young Cruize, and vocalist Jaelyn Taylor give performances that are sure to excite a younger generation with their fresh new sounds. Also included on the CD are the powerful performances of Phillip Ocasio on sax, west coasters Ricky & Romeo Carrido on congas & timbales, & Spanish guitarist Jorge Pastrana.
