Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

This highly acclaimed 1997 musical meeting between rising American trumpet star, Roy Hargrove, and a collection of Cuban musicians including Chucho Valdes, founder of Irakere, is indeed a fine piece of music making. Given the politics of our times, much was made of the rapprochement between Cuban and American musicians. However, if you approach it expecting to hear something like most contemporary Cuban dance or popular music, you may initially be disappointed. The Cuban influence is subtle rather than blatant; the dominant flavor comes from the jazz tradition. But let it work its magic on you over a few listens and the inner strengths of the two styles become entwined, the sophistication of the vision will transport you to some place where only music, and not politics, matter. These musicians work together like the fingers on your hand. --Jonathan E.

Roy selected an All Star cast for this CD!! Chucho Valdez on piano, David Sanchez on sax, Miguel "Anga" on congas, Changuito on timbales Oracios"El Negro" on drums, well as you can see its a can't miss hit. Check out "Mr Bruce and Mambo for Roy".This is a must have CD for Latin Jazz Collectors. Ricky

A work of genius from start to finish, Habana goes from subtle and sublime to the all out conga jam without ever missing a beat.
The rhythms seem so natural that they're already a part of you, and everything on top works perfectly, whether its a 10 piece arrangement or a solo.
If you've made it to this review, you might as well hear it for yourself. Ain't no words that can do it justice.
Plus, my friend Andy said it was a Mitzvah to turn anyone on to this album. Nuff said.

i really like Roy Hargrove's tone.he has feeling in his playing.i dig the way he&the other musicians involved get their Groove down on this disc.the styles work well and become one.Afrodisia is the cut.don't sleep on Roy Hargrove.he has talent&chops.

A perfect version of Afro-Cuban jazz. Oh Mi Say Yeh and Nusia's Poem are my favorite tracks on here!!
Support this man's musical vision, he is in my opinion a LEGEND. I hope the world realizes what they have in this brotha's music.

This has been a favorite since its first realease. "The Mountaings" and "Una Mas," to me, stand out in particular, as amazingly good songs.
