Noche Caliente featuring Angelo Pagan with special guests Jimmie Morales and Oskar Cartaya
Phone: 281-FREE-FUN or 281-373-3386
Long before TV fans started getting to know Angelo Pagan as a loving father and the charming husband of Hollywood actress Leah Remini on TLC’s first season of “Leah Remini: It’s All Relative”, music fans knew him as a salsa recording artist and band leader – performing all over the world where he garnered a following of salsa regulars such as Eva Longoria, Selma Hayek and Jennifer Lopez. Signed to his first record contract in 1988, Angelo went on to record with Johnny Polanco’s Conjunto La Amistad, Orquesta La Palabra, Mongo Santamaria, Tito Puente, and in 2001 he released his solo album, “No Tengas Miedo”. His new album, "Angelo" includes tracks in Spanish and English – in genres spanning salsa, pop and big band.
In 1978, Jimmie Morales joined the rhythmically tight and very popular band of Mr. Willie Rosario. Morales spent the next 8 years in what he considers his formal training in music and music business. At this time, he also started an impressive career as a premier studio musician, performing outstandingly in sessions for almost every major artist in the Salsa genre, such as Roberto Roena, Oscar D'Leon, Lalo Rodriguez, Frankie Ruiz and Eddie Santiago. Mr. Morales's consistent sound, impeccable rhythm fills and solid drive have defined him as one of the most influential congueros of the last 30 years.
During the course of a full career playing bass, composing, arranging and acting as musical director for an amazing array of artists, Oskar Cartaya has soaked up the influences of his homes in Puerto Rico, New York and Los Angeles. Now with his debut solo release, Oskar brings it all home. A long prolific career working with the likes of Spyro Gyra, Herb Albert, Jennifer Lopez, Celia Cruz, Rubén Blades, Tito Puente, Robbie Robertson, Willie Colon, Nestor Torres and more has given Oskar a long list of friends who collaborate with him on the new album.
