Editorial Reviews

From the Label

Singer-songwriter-guitarist-bandleader-producer Ned Sublette is one of the most original figures on the New York music scene, and COWBOY RUMBA (PALMCD2020-2), his debut solo album on Palm Pictures, is equally, and exquisitely, unique. COWBOY RUMBA is just what the name implies: Ned's lyrics, compositions and vocals combine with a dream team of all-star musicians from Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, the New York salsa scene and . . . Texas, for an utterly danceable ride.

COWBOY RUMBA combines the storytelling tradition of country lyrics with state-of-the-art Latin music -- salsa, timba, rumba, son and merengue. The unexpected musical fusion of COWBOY RUMBA features the hottest players in the world of Latin music, spun together by an ex-Texan who runs the coolest Cuban label in the US of America. Qbadisc, the label that pioneered the popular uprising stateside of the music in and around Cuba, is owned and operated by Ned Sublette.

The album features eight originals and two covers: a merengue version of "Ghost Riders In The Sky," co-produced in Santo Domingo with Ramon Orlando, and a hardcore rumba version of Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away" with the greatest rumba group of all time, Cuba's Los Muñequitos De Matanzas. The album's pantheon of heavy-duty guests includes Cuba's NG La Banda (the trend-setting band of the 90s in Cuba), Puerto Rico's Yomo Toro, and Texas's favorite son Lloyd Maines on pedal steel and dobro. The supporting players are a host of first-call New York musicians, most of whom have worked with Ned for years, including such luminaries as pianists "Professor" Joe Torres and young Cuban firebrand Lisandro Arias, bassist Ruben Rodriguez, percussionists Jimmy Delgado, Johnny Almendra, and Eric Velez, drummer Robby Ameen, and many more, with legendary salsa engineer Jon Fausty at the controls. And at the center is what one critic called "Ned's rich Texas brew of a voice," telling stories of drinking, cheating, and love lost and found with shout-outs to Havana and Albuquerque.

This isn't just music -- it's completely alive! Guaranteed to kick a party into high gear and pull you out of your bluest indigo funk, pronto. Everyone I know, from the most introspective geek to the most flamboyant hob-nobber loves this disc. You will, too.

This has got to be the most fun album I've ever heard! You'll get hooked by the music, but keep listening because of the beautiful poetry of the lyrics. I never get tired of listening to it and I've never been a country music fan. We're ready for the next one, Ned!

This is the album that brings them all together -- city, country, Anglo, Cuban, rock, rumba, Buddy Holly, and the Sons of the Pioneers -- and forces them to work out their differences. It went directly to the top of my playlist.

For about a year, I'd listen to this CD at least once a day. Usually on way home from a hot summer concrete job I was working on, real loud, w/ a cold beer. First CD I have ever seen on Amazon with nothing but 5 star reviews.

I AGREE>>>>>>>>>>Incredible.

BUY IT. LISTEN TO IT. A LOT !!!!!

What a shock it is ! That's really a great idea to mix the country and rock'n'roll of this Texan singer and the cuban rhythms of groups like the phenomenous NG La Banda. The songs of this CD make me very happy each time I listen to it.

After hearing an advance release of this CD, I can hardly wait to own the album. Don't be fooled by the cowboy title -- this is not your daddy's country music but an amazing fusion of Latin/Cubano riffs and rhythms with some of the best dance rock tunes in American music.

This CD nevers fails to put a smile on my face and rhythm in my step. From the humor in the true CW lyrics to the infectious Latin beat, the good-hearted spirit of this music shines through on every song. It's a music marketing and radio programming nightmare, but it's a listener's delight. And don't forget the Cuban-accented chorus on Feelin' No Pain. Great stuff, Ned, give us more!
