Danny Rivera, dubbed the “National Voice of Puerto Rico,” teams up with his long-time collaborator, virtuosic tresero Nelson Gonzalez, for this collection of classic boleros—Latin ballads comprised of catchy melodies and heartfelt lyrics. The duo is joined by a number of Latino music luminaries (including Chucho Valdés, the late master percussionist Manny Oquendo, even Miami Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Federico Britos), but it’s mostly Rivera and González’s show. The songs are presented in minimalist arrangements, resulting in a program that’s perfect for winding down after a long evening.


A Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission panel upheld the firing of former Milwaukee Police officer Christopher Manney for violating department rules last April when he encountered Dontre Hamilton before fatally shooting him. Do you agree with the commission’s decision?
