    Summary

    Another classic from the era reissued by Cubop in 1999 and originally released in 1977 by Epsilon Records, Hitting Hard is street-style rare groove fusing Brazilian, salsa, Latin jazz, and funk flavors with a cast that includes San Francisco vibist Nerio De Gracia, the dynamic Cedric Deon Bi on vocals, and percussion great Armando Peraza.

    Ramón's Desire kicks it off featuring the rich voice of Deon Bi, whose expressive articulation and soulful delivery are impressive throughout. Afro-Nue, co-written by Aguabella and Peraza, is a traditional piece that has Francisco chanting, as a lone flute plays over drums and marimba in an intriguing kaleidoscopic counterpoint. The Edu Lobo composition, Casa Fuerte, is awe-inspiring due to Aguabella's drumming virtuosity, but Anna Maria is a dancehall reminder of his salsa days with César's Latin All-Stars in the Mission District.

    Aguabella's been with everybody - Gillespie, Palmieri, Puente, Sinatra, Peggy Lee, Santana, Cal Tjader, Mongo, Katherine Dunham, and Malo. Les Blank produced a film on his life, Sworn To The Drum, but this reissue projects his creative side at a fruitful point in his career.
