4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the previous cd November 11, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is definitely much more upbeat than the first cd. I like instrumental jams but I also like to hear some lyrics. Specially if they say something. The musicians are of course, great. Cubans take their music very serious. They usually don't talk much about who is better, they just show you. Jesus is probably one of my favorite trumpet players and Tata Guines is of course Tata Guines. Check out the Reencarnacion cd it's the best of all three.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Band is HOT! March 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This CD is great! This band is full of talent, rooted in tradition with an updated sound and lots of "sabor". If you don't like lyrics I guess you won't like 99% of cuban music and about 50% of this record! This album is a nice blend of great traditional tunes(like Mulence)and fine instrumental ones (like Now in Marianao)a much balanced mix than their first effort. Alemany's trumpet (joined here by Guajiro Mirabal another great cuban trumpet player)is inspired and singing, full of that traditional cuban lyricism. Add Alfredo Rodriguez on piano, Tata Guines, and so on...enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Old styles brought into the present May 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Cubanismo specialize in bringing up-to-date the rhythms and styles of pre-Castro Cuba such as guaguanca, pa'ca, son and others. Uplifting and refreshing ensemble work here- great soloing and charts throughout. If the second cut on the CD, "Salsa Pilon", doesn't get your hips swaying and your toes tappin', you'd better check your pulse...

Not just a "nice" work. Alemañy's work presents--through sounds--what being Latino means for many people. The lightness, the joy in life, many great things expressed by an incredible "army" in which each of the players is kind of a General in his instrument. The variety of rhythms addressed makes this work be taken seriously as reference material. Thanks for the music!
