Noro Morales Albums

Noro Morales was one of the finest latin piano players in the 1940’s and 1950’s, let’s say the Duke Ellington of Puerto Rico where he was born. In the 1920’s he played in Venezuela, he went to the USA in 1935 and in 1937 he put together the Hermanos Morales Orchestra, with Humberto and Esy Morales. Their biggest hit was Serenata Ritmica in 1942, a hot tune in the New York Latin clubs. In the 1960’s he went back to his homeland Puerto Rico. Morales recorded for various labels, including Colombia, Decca and RCA. He died in 1964.
