Jimmy’s first two solo CDs, “Soneando Trombón” and “Salsa Dura” established him as the Ambassador of the Salsa Dura movement.
He ignited this movement by combining old school quality salsa arrangements with a modern NY aggressive edge and socially conscious lyrics. “El Avión De La Salsa” demonstrates and solidifies his commitment to keeping it raw and telling it like it is.
Bosch’s music is inspirational. Jimmy continues to document and share his heart, mind, soul and experience on “A MILLON,” Jimmy’s 4th solo record release, featuring a Sonero from Puerto Rico, Willito Otero.
