The life story of Hector Lavoe who started the salsa movement in 1975 and brought it to the United States.
According to the DVD commentary, the film was shot in only 33 days.
It feels good to be a Nuyorican holding up a trombone instead of a tray or a hoteI elevator.
In the scene where Hector Perez signs his contract with Jerry Masucci, and is given the name Hector La Voe. Willie Colon is standing behind him. On the wall behind Willie is a framed album cover of "The Hustler", the second album they made together. At this point in the story they have not yet recorded together.
