NEW YORK, July 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Last summer, over 12,000 music fans gathered at the "Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival" to witness a once in a lifetime concert experience as a select group of renowned salsa musicians came together for a historical one night event. Last week, that experience was immortalized forever as "Salsa Giants" CD/DVD was released under the production of musical director and producer Sergio George through Top Stop Music. This week, the album debuted at #1 in the Tropical sales chart. Click here to purchase the album: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/sergio-george-presents-salsa/id653548601.

"It is great to see this project succeed to this extent," said Sergio George. "To see these giants move so many souls together was a one and only experience, that fortunately, was recorded so it would never be forgotten, because concerts like that are rarely repeated. Now, to have this album reach top sales in our first week of release is a true testament to the power of these artists and the love for salsa music."

The concert begins with a brief piano introduction from George before a series of Salsa legends representing numerous cultures took the stage. Performances included Marc Anthony, Oscar D'Leon, Cheo Feliciano, Luis Enrique, Andy Montanez, Willy Chirino, Jose Alberto "El Canario", Tito Nieves, Nora from the "Orquesta de la Luz" and Charlie Zaa. Hits included "Fabricando Fantasias", "De Mi Enamorate", "Disculpeme Senora", "Lo Que Esta Pa' Ti", "Rebelion", "Yo No Se Manana", "Un Verano En Nueva York", "Lloraras" and "Tu Amor Me Hace Bien".

The album, which debuted as #2 in overall sales, also features an original song featuring all of the Salsa Giants entitled "Para Celebrar." Listen here: https://soundcloud.com/susanblondinc/para-celebrar/s-h1E45

"It felt like a graduation celebration... I said to myself, 'Wow, I'm here with the best,'" said Marc Anthony. And De Leon added: "I have to applaud and support this action taken by Sergio George."

Executive produced by Gregory Elias, Sergio George and Pablo Croce, the "Salsa Giants" documentary, narrated by John Leguizamo, debuted this past spring at the Curacao International Film Festival Rotterdam and will continue to play at festivals throughout the year.
