4.0 out of 5 stars Manny scores again with this Cover Album 12 Oct. 2014
By bilahn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Manny Manuel continues the trend of performing new arrangement of old music. I don't believe he has had an album of new merengue since Lleno de Vida in 1999, altho there were 2 albums of rather dreadful new pop oriented music.

Rayando el Sol, a merengue version of the music of Mana was perhaps the best album Manny has done. Here we have what I believe are new arrangements of old merengue songs (not, as I was thinking from the title, of non-merengue old songs). The style takes us back somewhat to the old merengue of the early 90s before Manny went solo. As such, it is more basic, less sophisticated then what became popular later, but the arrangements here are solid and polished, and the song choice generally good with catchy melodies.

What makes this album really worthwhile tho is Manny's singing, which is really superb. He has grown and refined his technique over the years, and no matter what the song, it is a real joy to hear him. The highlight is Juan Luis Guerra's Women del Calle. (Could someone explain to me why this is credited to someone named Delgado? - I thought Guerra wrote the originals of all his songs).

To cover an iconic song by an iconic singer is risky and difficult, but Manny nails it. He sings in much the same fashion, but does not copy Guerra, and thus makes it his own. It may be shocking, but I actually like Manny's version better!

Other highlights are La Quiero a Morir, and Collegia, but there are only 2 or 3 songs I don't much like.

Overall, both Manny and the arranger Richard Marcell have taken a simple old genre, and made it fresh again.

While not as spectacular as Rayando el Sol, this is still very much worth having. I am still waiting for an album of new material of merengue/salsa/ bachata, but I knew there isn't a whole lot out there anymore.
