Louie Vega – Vince Montana Tribute (RickLou NYC Piano Groove)
[Nervous Records]

This collaboration came about through an edit Rick sent to Louie and the major response whenever Louie played it at his parties. Considering Louie’s longtime love for Vince Montana, he decided to go large, bringing in Elements of Life band members Gene Perez (Bass), Axel Tosca (Fender Rhodes) and Luisito Quintero (Congas). Adding the piano line himself, Louie was able to bring out the most authentic disco elements of this superlative groove but rework them so they are exactly in the pocket for today’s dancefloors worldwide.
