Este reconocimiento resalta el tributo al Vibráfono en la salsa y su trayectoria en este género musical.
"As the set drew to a close, waiters and pizza chefs were being drawn into the crowd to dance between the tables".
– Jonathan Carvell
His sextet has proven via various recordings that you don’t need to have a large orchestra to be successful. Whether they are playing salsa or latin jazz one thing is for certain, they have the signature swing that has made all of their sextet predecessor’s legends in the Latin music genre.
Rudy Mangual - Latin Beat magazine
"...seductive pure salsa especially made for dancers. Sophisticated arrangements keep solos to a minimum throughout the production so as to not interfere with the flow of the dancers...
“I knew Colombian vibe player Dorance Lorza very well. I booked his group Sexteto Café regularly for my Wednesday nights at a club called Cuba in the ’90s. I always liked his classic salsa sound that had that all-important tough swing. The vibraphone is not as popular an instrument these days so it’s crucial to support the musicians persevering with it. Seeing him so often we became a bit blasé about his talents, but a new release from him, Ten Years of Salsa (SLIC010), is a wake-up call to remind us just how good a bandleader and musician he is. His contribution to music is considerable— in Cali he worked on many releases from top Colombian bands like Los Niches, Los Del Caney and Fruko. Ten Years of Salsa is comprised of tracks off two cds he made, Café Salsa (1997) and Salsa Pa’ Ti (2004). The remaining tracks are from a “lost” 2000 album called Latin DNA. It is superb music, crafted from the best ideas and carved into dance-friendly slices.”
