Ismael Quintana

Profile:
Ismael Quintana (b.June 3, 1937, Ponce, Puerto Rico – d.April 16, 2016, Colorado, USA) was a singer and composer of salsa music. His family moved to the Bronx sector of New York when he was only two weeks old; there he went to school and whilst he was still in high school he formed a band with his neighborhood friends. In 1961, bandleader Eddie Palmieri heard Quintana sing for an audition and invited him to join his newly organized orchestra "La Perfecta". Quintana accepted and became the lead singer of the band between 1961 and 1971. During this time he co-wrote some of Palmieri's major hit songs. With Palmieri, Quintana was awarded the 1966 Trophy for the "Most Popular Latin Singer of the Year", awarded at the famed Palladium Ballroom in New York. Quintana left Palmieri for a solo career and signed with the Vaya Records (subsidiary of Fania Records) . Between 1974 and 1983, he recorded five albums as a solo artist, scoring his first major hit with "Mi Debilidad" (My Weakness).

My heart is deeply saddened to learn of the death of Ismael "Pat" Quintana (April 16, 2016, Age 78). He was one of our greatest voices, a man of distinction, always approachable and easy going. It was an honor to know him. Rest in Peace my friend, knowing you were a part of my life made the experience even more memorable. My sincere condolences to la familia Quintana.
