Celia Cruz: The Absolute Collection
“¡Azúcar!” Cuban-American singer Celia Cruz’s signature catch phrase still echoes against the walls of the hearts, minds, and morning showers of salsa fans throughout the globe. This 2-disc box set’s 30 re-mastered tracks follow Cruz’s musical evolution, as she collaborated with fellow Latin music legend Tito Puente, as well as Joey Pacheco, Willie Colon, and other members of the groundbreaking salsa collective the Fania All-Stars. Included in this special collection is a 60-page full-color book and more than 70 previously unpublished photographs and memorabilia.
Celia Cruz is featured in MIM’s Artist Gallery; the exhibit includes a pair of her signature style of shoes and the stunning red stage dress worn at the 1992 Jazz at Lincoln Center concert with Tito Puente.
