Louie Vega, Tito Puente and Otra Nota
Anthony started working with the now legendary DJ and producer Louie Vega. The two opened for Latin Jazz legend Tito Puente at Madison Square Garden in 1992. The concert gave Anthony a lot of visibility in NYC’s Latin community.
In 1993 Anthony made the leap into salsa with Otra Nota (Another Note). The story is that he decided to sing salsa after hearing a Juan Gabriel song on the radio in a taxi. Soon Anthony was one of salsa’s rising stars.
