    We want you to check out Ismael Miranda's A Man and His Music. This is no ordinary compilation. The 30 tracks on this definitive anthology were selected by Ismael Miranda himself. The legendary Puerto Rican singer and songwriter even designed the sequencing of these two discs — giving us a rare opportunity to appreciate his contribution to Afro-Caribbean music under a new light.

    Listen to A Man and His Music from beginning to end, and you will discover a salsa artist of exceptional taste and sophistication, able to switch effortlessly from feverish salsa jams and hardcore Afro-Cuban roots to velvety Latin ballads and soulful boleros. No doubt about it: the man known in his heyday as "el niño bonito de la salsa" (salsa's pretty boy) stands alongside the likes of Héctor Lavoe, Rubén Blades and Celia Cruz as one of the definitive icons of the '70s salsa explosion.

    To purchase a copy of the release on Fania Records, you can get the CD from ARTISTdirect, or digitally via iTunes.

    Are you salsa'ing?
