Editorial Reviews

On this delightful disc, the Canadian soprano saxophonist/flutist "Havana Jane" Bunnett translates the pulsating and percussive Afro-Hispanic changui rhythms of the island's notorious eastern Guantanamo province to the language of jazz. Bunnett is backed by an adept ensemble featuring her partner, trumpeter Larry Cramer, tuba master Howard Johnson--who was stationed in the U.S. Guantanamo Army Base--tenor saxophonist Dewey Redman, Grupo Changui de Santiago, and Grupo Changui de Guantanamo. Bunnett knows how to swing on Latin music without sacrificing the dance pulse, especially on the folkloric "Yemaya" and "Kiriba." "New Orleans Under Water (Nuevo Orleans Bajo Agua)" is an elegy to the horrors of Katrina and an acknowledgment of that metropolis' links to Cuba. The Crescent City singer/multi-instrumentalist Jumpin' Johnny Sansone furthers those links with an Afro-Cuban update of his tune "Give Me One Dollar," which pays tribute to the island that provided North America with its "Spanish tinge." --Eugene Holley, Jr.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dance, Sing, Cry or Fly November 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is a ridiculously beautiful record. How do they come up with this stuff? Hey let's go to Guantonamo Bay, infuse Jazz into traditional Cuban Changui, and layer it with Louisiana Swamp music and Blues. WOW! Guests include the late great Dewey Redman, Howard Johnson and Blues artists Johnnie Sansone and Kevin Brett. Sansone's "Gimme One Dollar" and "No Money No Chica" are hits with my University age friends - dancing on the dock all night long this summer - they love it even though they don't recognize the Don Pullen quotes. Redman's Tenor is rich and full - check him out on the first cut `Changui Para Alfredo' and then on # 10 'Yemaya' - the power is raw like a Hippo braying in the jungle. And everywhere Jane Bunnett's soprano and flute emotes - like on #1 - her sax lifts me into the air - on #6, 'New Orleans Underwater' - I'm overcome with the anguish of abandonment, on #10 - I am restored and triumphant. She's heroic. Put this on your headphones for your next marathon - you'll fly. This record was the #1 Jazz Album in Canada this year. It should take a Grammy.

Is this the last great recording session for Dewey Redman? I'm really going to miss his Tenor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD September 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is a terrific CD with totally fresh music from Jane, livelier than her previous album - Red Dragonfly. She has always been a great flute/soprano sax artist. She plays both on this album. I have seen her on many occasion live and have many of her CD's. This is definitely one of her best works. This CD also contained some guitar which is also nice. Look forward to Volume 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Her best yet April 24, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first saw Jane playing in Madrid around 20 years ago and was very impressed. I bought one of her previous collaborations with Cuban musicians which I loved. But this record gets away from those salsa riffs, and explores Changüi, a fresh world of loose rhythms and polyrhythms wherein all the excellent guest players can feel at home and stretch out without necessarily making a display of chops. The result is really seductive music which you can listen to over and over again. The songs have a wry humour. There are some weird things going on the low frequencies, a mixture of Cuban drums, bass and tuba, which are excellently recorded and quite unlike anything I have heard elsewhere. I was amazed (and lucky) to see such great music on sale at 1c. There is not a single dud track, so buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars something good from Guantanamo January 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is a mixture of light-hearted tracks with lyrics (2 and 7), traditional music (3, 5, and 11) and more serious, ambitious, instrumental tracks (1, 4, 6, 8-10).
Jane Bunnett's work on flute and soprano sax is impeccable and the arrangements, which often are incorporating local bands, are very well done.
The flavor of the music is something I have nowhere else in my musical library.
My only previous exposure to Jane Bunnett was the album "Alma de Santiago."
I am impressed with Dewey Redman's playing on tenor throughout.
Overall, I would say this album is alive; it holds my interest throughout.
My favorite section is toward the end: tracks 8 to 10. "Conga Blue" features Larry Cramer on trumpet soaring over a dense, pulsating rhythm section as well as organ and guitar intertwining with the percussion and the vocalist. "New Orleans Under Water" includes some excellent and deliciously bluesy guitar playing, which contrasts with and complements the latin underpinnings. "Yemaya" inspires and refreshes the soul.
I would describe this album with the words intelligent, creative, balanced, fun.
