Entrevista al gran cantante Tony Molina - parte 14 de 14
TONY MOLINA has performed and recorded with the orchestras of Tito Puente, Jose Curbelo, and Alfredito. Tony has shared the stage with such names as Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Sammy Davis Jr., Count Basie, Sarah Vaughn, Stan Kenton, Tony Bennet, and many more. Seven albums with Tony Molina as featured vocalist are currently available on CD including Tito Puente's second best-selling album "Cuban Carnival" and Hector Rivera's "Lo Maximo".
Performing live and on recording as vocalist and conga player, his ability to draw in an audience was put to good use by the orchestras of Joseito Roman, Tito Puente, Fausto Curbelo, Jose Curbelo, Alfredito, and Ramon Argueso to name only a few. And when not on the road, he was the house singer at the Roseland Ballroom in New York.
To this date at least seven of the old recordings have been rereleased in CD form: Jose Curbelo and His Orchestra Live at the China doll In New York, Hector Rivera and his orchestra Lo Maximo, Alfredito's Guajira With Boogaloo, Joe Cuba I Tried To Dance All Night, Ray Barretto La Moderna De Siempre, and Tito Puente's Cuban Carnival.

Many of the albums featuring Tony as vocalist are now considered collectibles including one he recorded with his own orchestra. One album he recorded on the Fiesta label with the Jose Curbelo Orchestra became one of the biggest selling recordings of the year 1954. Two cuts from this album (Poco Pelo and La La La) quickly became international hit.
Tony was the soloist on the block buster album Cha Cha Goes Modern (recorded on the Tico label) with the Alfredito's Orchestra. The Hector Rivera album Lo Maximo features Tony on every cut of the album. This album is considered by musicologists as the most significant album recorded by the Tico Label in the year 1974. In addition to being the vocalist on Tito Puente's second best-selling album (Cuban Carnival), he was the first singer to record Oye Como Va. (The song later recorded by Santana).
