This work, "Barretto Power, is dedicated to salsa legend Ray Barretto. One of the first musicians to combine the roots of jazz and Caribbean/Latin music, Barretto favored contemporary harmonies and continued to push the limits of the genre with his band.
This piece was written by Samuel Torres for the 2021 Hispanic Heritage Month Observance with The U.S. Army Blues, featuring the composer himself on percussion.
