From the imagination, and under the musical direction of Angel Fernandez, Grupo Transito brings together three generations of Salseros. Bringing together vocalists like Tito Allen, Ray Sepulveda, George Lamond, Junior Gonzalez and Alexa Rojas to name a few, Grupo Transito offers some of the best salsa talent of the last fifty years under the same banner. Fernandez, a veteran director of some of the most successful Salsa groups starting in the early nineties, including Marc Anthony, Obie Bermudez and Michael Stuart has made a name for himself as a very powerful and talented, if somewhat under-the-radar musical director and producer. Coming from humble beginnings, born in Santiago, Dominican Republic before moving to Brooklyn, Fernandez worked as a professional musician for many years before graduating from the prestigious Manhattan School of Music. In the years to follow, he established himself not only as a strong trumpeter, but also arranger and composer. In his most notable effort so far as organizer of Grupo Transito, Fernandez has gained significant critical notice and acclaim. The group's debut record, La Nueva Combinacion, came out in 2006 to a very warm reception. ~ Evan C. Gutierrez
