Format: Audio CD
The release of Ry Cooder's Buena Vista Social Club album in 1996 introduced many of us to the sound of "son cubano", the Cuban blend of Spanish and African melodies and rhythms that was a feature of the Havana dance club since the 1940s. Influenced by American jazz - and especially by Willis Conover's Voice of America Jazz Hour in the 1950s and 60s - the music of the venerable Cuban musicians became a big hit. Here is another excellent ARC CD of world music, with a selection of the best of Buena Vista by a few of the original BV musicians. They're led by a leading sonero, Luis Frank, and the great singer Pio Leyva. But just as important, the album features the accomplished musicians of Buena Vista: the Next Generation. The highlight is Compay Segundo's Chan Chan, the breakout hit from the original album, which is sung here by his nephews. This is amazing, vital, rhythmically complex and melodic music that will put a smile on your face, and get your body moving.

A bit disappointed...the mixing was jumbled and it almost sounds like music and lyrics are dubbed over one another. I probably will never listen to it again...

Great music from the great Havana, Cuba era of the 1940's and 1950's.
