8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Enrique Torres VINE VOICE on January 22, 2003
Format: Audio CD
I found this disc a few years back in a record store in Mexico and was astounded by my find and continue to play it all the time.Take the legenday guitarist and one of the vocalists of the Buena Vista Social Club, he of the curious tuft of hair coming out of his Kirk Douglas-cleft on his chin, Eliades Ochoa, and cut him loose with a surprising guest for an awesome result. The guest being Issa Hayes look alike Manu Dibango, African sax legendary funkster most famous for his "Soul Makossa " and the odd coupling creates some memorable music. Of course the backing of the Cuarteto Patria gives the disc the distictive overall Cuban flavor but Dibango colors the palette to give it a different sound. His sax livens up the music, as if it needs to be more festive for some intoxicating happy rhythmns. Dibango chimes in vocally with his signature "makossas" and Ochoa encourages him as they seem to be having a ball making this recording. The instrument duets by Ochoa and Dibango are unique and extremely lively. The songs have almost an improvisational quality as the interplay between sax and guitar, African and Cuban vocalist, create some musical magic. Ochoa carries the load on this disc but it is a close partnership and colloboration between all the musicians. On track five, "El Yerbero" Ochoa delivers a beauty, praisinfg the healthful herb benefits of ruda,epazote etc. for a nice version of the song made famous by Celia Cruz.Ochoa demostrates his guitar virtousity throughout, often leading into some tasty give and take interplay with Dibango before Ochoa takes over lead vocals.Read more ›

Trying to find good Cuban, Brazilian, mambos salsa etc is a real pain in the butt. Obviously there is tremendous Potential in this music and when its good its mindblowing and such a turn on. Otherewise the genre suffers in-breeding producing clones, muzac or sort of thing any one with sensability would only play low in the background
( Buena Vista Social Club is the real thing though)

I'm a big Manu Dibango fan. He never had more to say than Soul Makossa which is terrific and his voice (which pops up on this album a few times.) Cuarteto Patriarch produces clones of their sound or its genre......So here a great crossfertilization. Not that its a new Cuban sound but Manu, as a big soul, seems to have shaken up Cuarteto Patriarch into playing with integrity; to mean it when they play in his presence and his own sax guts and inflections Great to see Manu still playing and exploring in his 70s or older.
