Salsa World Wide - Japan - Carlos Kanno and Orquesta De La Luz

Carlos Kanno is the 'founder' and member of the Japanese big band 'Nettai Tropical Jazz Big Band' and the Salsa band 'Orquesta de La Luz' but he also made a solo album called Carlos Kanno - Sings! featuring the Nettai Tropical Jazz Big Band (2008).
The album contains Jazzy songs in English, with a big latin influence (Salsa / Cha Cha Cha), it isn't an album for the Salsa dancers, it is more an album for listeners, and it will do a good job at a lounge bar, an exception on this is the track Flamingo it has a Cha Cha Cha rhythm that will get you on your feet.
Since I am a dancer I personally think his best creations are with 'Orquesta De La Luz'. Orquesta De La Luz was formed in Tokyo as a unique Japanese Salsa band in 1984 and they have made a lot of good Salsa music since then.
