Salsa: La Orquesta Dee Jay – Still going stronger than ever.
La Orquesta Dee Jay which was started back in 1968 by George De Jesus is still going stronger than ever and still talking directly to Salseros worldwide. Jerry Hernandez, the original trombonist, is now the current director and leader of La Orquesta Dee Jay.
The band has performed with all the legendary salsa bands of the 70’s and had the crowds swinging’ and dancing to their vibrant New York sound.
Their first LP was recorded in 1970 on MGM Latino and was called “Pa 'Alante Con La Orquesta Dee Jay” (Straight Ahead with Orq. Dee Jay). This was a big hit for the group and approximately a year later, another masterpiece album was created called “Forget it” on Lewgas Records.
Orquesta Dee Jay has just released it’s out of print CD “Forget It” on theClave. This is an absolute must have for anyone who loves that Hard New York Big Band Salsa Sound with loads of bass.
