Andy Montañez's powerful voice is truly a wonder, and the repertoire on Millonarios de la Salsa features tunes from his long association with Rodven/Polygram. In truth, Montañez's superb Oro Salsero compilation tops this one in terms of selections. But in any case, this material is marvelous, showcasing the masterful Montañez at every turn. The standouts are the two medleys (both El Gran Combo chestnuts) as well as "Payaso," "Genio y Figura" (a duet with Montañez's son, Andy Jr.), and "Chemen, Chemen." ~ José A. Estévez, Jr.
