Great music is simply great music, and it is definitely timeless ;-) My intention has always been to keep them interested and inspired. You and I both simply need to continue sharing our evolving skills, ideas and passion as it pertains to extending the mix of Latin percussion and Latin rhythms. We also need to be the Old School Salsa evangelists and to show everyone world-wide how cool the Salsa genre is, how deep the Salsa mastery goes, and that Salsa was always ahead of its time with becoming timeless ... ... I like sharing my experiences and emotions through my mixes, I simply want the world to experience and imagine what Salsa music is and can be if you simply take the time to truly listen with the heart. The Salsa instrumental musical conversations are endless and timeless for all to enjoy, even beyond the decades to come ;-) Let us both continue to spread the love and life lessons through our mixes, the world will be a better place with the musical legacy we leave behind ... ... ... YOU ARE TRULY AN AWESOME MIXOLOGIST ... ... SO KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK BECAUSE THE WORLD IS LISTENING AND WAITING FOR YOUR NEXT MIX ... ... DO WHAT YOU DO BEST ;-)

Tony, you are definitely the BEST MIXOLOGIST I had the pleasure of listening to, your mixes are truly GREAT and I love the NYC vibe in all of your mixes, I am a NYC Bronx transplant who now resides in NJ, and I am only a stones throw away from NYC ;-) Keep up the GREAT work !!!
