"Linda Melodia" in salsa music

#23
You know opm, since I first read this thread, every time I've been out dancing and I hear "linda melodia" in a song I think of you and try to make a mental note of the song :) But it's hard to remember in the heat of the moment, or I don't know the song name/version, so I usually end up unable to tell you what it was. :oops:

I'm curious if that's anyhow related, but I've heard the musical quote near to "linda melodia" before. what is it? and is that related?
So generally my understanding is that the sonero will call it out at moments where he's calling for a beautiful melody from the pianist (most of the time) and the pianist will oblige. Either that or the sonero calls it out to have the audience pay attention to this beautiful melody...

That's my understanding as well. But what is the quote at 2:00 ?; I know Ruben Blades has used it.

Or here at 5:05

Ataca means attack, as in attack that piano... i have no idea what he's saying at 5:05 and I actually think he's talking to someone else.

He is starting up athe coro there. The man starts it and he and a woman (Omara?) sing it a couple times I can hear the word "más" but I don't know what the rest is because they are so quiet. I would like to say that it's something along the lines of "no...m'as" but can't really hear. Then the man ends it with a comment but I can't hear well enough.

There are many songs that at the beginning of solos (particularly piano solos) the sonero will say "linda melodia!" For example: Ray Barretto - Salsa Y Dulzura youtube.com/watch?v=2u5zJw23Ofc at 1:45.

Of the top of my head that's the only one I remember, but I know it happens a lot. Any other examples? Gracias
It doesn't get better than this:
