Listening to Ray Barretto's Indestructible is like being swept away by syncopated percussion, whisking us to the heart of '70s Spanish Harlem. Lead vocalist Tito Allen's honeyed tones turn the rosy "Yo Tengo un Amor" and the swinging "Llanto de Cocodrilo" into sidewalk serenades for a warm August night. Closing out the set, the title track climaxes in a feel-good jam session. Indestructible Ray Barretto.

Indestructible is one of Barretto's most solidly consistent efforts, a series of Afro-Cuban rhythms and song styles illustrated by a stomping band that knows how to move the classic material in a jazz manner into improvisation and then back again. The opener, "El Hijo de Oblata," is a case in point: a piano line playing a steaming son line sets the base for the horn section to widen it; next comes the chorus on the vocal melody, propped up all around by an army of percussionists, and they all meld together before the tempo slows momentarily and slips into a five/eight.

Open and eclectic, this album welcomes both swing, jazz and African rhythms: the result is a powerful and catchy salsa in the image of the rebirth of the percussion virtuoso. Fania Records was a New York based record label founded by Dominican-born composer and bandleader Johnny Pacheco and Italian-American lawyer Jerry Masucci in 1964.

Ray Barretto (April 29, 1929 – February 17, 2006) was a Puerto Rican conga drummer and bandleader born in New York. Throughout his career as a percussionist, he played a wide variety of Latin music styles, as well as Latin jazz. His first hit, "El Watusi", was recorded by his Charanga Moderna in 1962, becoming the most successful pachanga song in the United States. In the late 1960s, Barretto became one of the leading exponents of boogaloo and what would later be known as salsa
