A 14-piece group formed by Edgardo Cintron, a talented Latin-jazz percussionist, Cintron made its debut with the release of Absolutely on March 20th, 2001, featuring Latin classics such as "Oye Como Va" and "Suavecito." Led by singer and executive producer Rocco de Persia and keyboardist Jimmy López, the band combines big band jazz style, traditional Latin rhythms, and contemporary pop/rock. Citron performed live at the New Millennium Diversity Inaugural Ball in Washington, D.C., on January 20th, 2001, to honor President George W. Bush. Hit Men followed in 2003, reprising many of the tunes that were contained on Absolutely. Back in the Day was next in 2005, with a handful of new tracks appearing alongside previously released ones. ~ Drago BonacichPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
