Montalvo plays while mambo dancer Nadeen
performs her special steps.
Montalvo has been my friend for over 20 years.
He is a groove player and possesses one of the
crispest sounds of any conga drummer in the world.
He is the kind of conga drummer that singers love
to have back them up. His rhythm is what dancers
depend upon for keeping them in lock step to the
infectious Afro-Carribean music that Eddie has
been playing since he was a kid growing up in
the South Bronx.
being a great musician I have always used when
producing recordings (his Drum Solos recordings
taught many a drummer to keep time and solo),
he is also a great human being. He is the guy
that would take his shirt off his back and give
it to you. He has more than once been abused by
his "friends" for his generosity. He
can't turn down a guy on the street asking for
a handout and has maintained both a career in
music while working at Con Edison in New York
for over 25 years.
