Editorial Reviews

Review

"'Cocinando' means cooking and this book sizzles...a beautiful anthology that will act like catnip for record collectors..." -- Daily Hampshire Gazette, March 17, 2005

"Anyone who allows visual cues to send them into a nostalgia about music will delight in Cocinando." -- Ed Morales, New York Newsday, April 10, 2005

"Sexy, innovative, mythic, beautiful, 'Cocinando!' is a celebration of life, music, and art..." -- Loft Insider, March 2005

"The book lives up to its title, serving up social history and...delights of the flesh in equal measure..." -- Boston Globe, April 3, 2005

...a must for any collector... -- The Beat, July/August 2005

A deeply detailed and knowledgeable overview of Latino album cover design from the last half of the twentieth century. -- Communication Arts Magazine, Sept/Oct 2005

Cocinando! is a simply gorgeous, rich presentation with full-page color album covers packing every page. -- Library Bookwatch, October 2005

You don't need to be a record collector to realize the cover artwork was often as seductive as the music. -- New York Post, May 11, 2005

the meanings and motivations behind the images used to market Latin music are often intriguing, inspirational or divisive at turns. -- Songlines, Nov/Dec 2005

visuals at the core of Yglesias's history of record packaging glow in saturated colours, well matched by his vibrant writing. -- The Wire, Dec 2005

Format: Paperback
I find COCINANDO! FIFTY YEARS OF LATIN ALBUM COVER ART, to be a model of what such a book should be. Its creator, Pablo Ellicott Yglesias, has created a true work of art. (Review by Whiteford, a bibliophile.)

Other books have been written on rock album cover art: here's the first to cover fifty years of the brightest and best album covers in Latin music history - and those who fostered them. Using album covers over the decades, Cocinadndo is an artistic, visual treat of the best Latin record covers from all genres of Latin music, from congo and bassa nova to salsa. Cocinando! is a simply gorgeous, rich presentation with full-page color album covers packing every page.

If you're going to be stuck some place without music - Bring This Book With You! This book swims with visual excitement and indepth analysis of an exciting genre that is poorly understood. Pablo Yglesias acts a curator Extraordinaire in this not to be missed work.

I bought this book on a friend's recommendation. It's pages are filled with great album art that spans the range of great Latin Jazz and Rock, from Desi Arnaz and Mongo Santamaria to Carlos Santana and Los Lobos. It is like a pictoral history of great Latin music in America, including a section on Brasilian music. Tito Puente, Poncho Sanchez....even Dizzy Gillespie (who helped introduce Latin Rhythms to America) is represented....all in glorious vintage styles that you forgot you loved!

So if you love Jazz, buy this one.

Now I need to add these albums to my record collection.
