2014 - The Year in Review - (Census) CHEO FELICIANO (1935-2014)

     It is only logical that a young man who sings lead for The Joe Cuba Sextet and The Eddie Palmieri band would be a big success when he goes out on his own. It is the voice of Cheo Feliciano that you heard on the Joe Cuba Sextet's crossover appealing "El Pito"(I'll Never Go Back To Georgia). Other
unforgettable tunes included "Yo No Soy Un Angel"(I am not an angel), "Anacaonda", "Mi Triste Problema"(My sad problem) and "Mentira"
      Recent CDs (2009) were "Cheo Feliciano - A Man and His Music" and "Historia de la Salsa". Cheo Feliciano was the winner of several music awards including a Grammy Award in 2008 for excellence in music. Cheo Feliciano died in a car accident in his native Puerto Rico.
