This 1982 recording by the late Cuban Flutist Gonzálo Fernández for TOBOGA Records (a division of Roberto Torres's SAR label) is a WONDERFUL Charanga recording with a rather experimental, VERY instrumental and HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL Side A, and a classic style of Charanga music on Side B.
Apart from focusing on the musicians and solos, this recording also focuses on the rhythmic and danceable aspect of the music, making it a FINE album for dancing too.
Another thing worth mentioning here is that the songs are not old famous tunes we've heard many times before, but mostly new songs that still sound as FRESH today as they did back in 1982!...

The title-track 1.Repicao (14.40 MINS!...) which begins with a short Timbale introduction by Nicky Marrero, is an OUTSTANDING Charanga-Jam-Session tune that not only features this album's protagonist Gonzálo Fernández surprisingly handling the vocals, but also many AWESOME musical passages defined by GREAT individual solos, AWESOME breaks, 5 to 6 different chorus variations and changes of Violin background arrangements that give us SERIOUS Cha-onda licks towards the end!...
After the 1st two chorus variations with "Clava tu clavo Zapatéro" and "Caramélo a kilo", this F-U-L-L package features double Electric-violin solos, SUPERB Timbale solos AND reprises by Nicky Marrero, VERY WELL integrated Trombone arrangements joining in with the Batá-drums for GREAT interplays between Flute and Trombone solos before the volume starts gradually going down for Marrero to close down the track on Timbales again!...
This is an ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT and INTENSE instrumental and experimental tune where EVERYTHING works to PERFECTION!...

Don Gonzalo Fernandez is a Cuban flute player. He's the featured artist in this recording, Repicao. A little background; back in the 1970's an album entitled SUPER TIPICA DE ESTRELLAS came out, featuring Don Gonzalo. While I no longer have the album, or the CD, I remember that it was one of my favorite NY charanga records from that period. And there were a lot of great NY charanga releases at that time!

I don't know if I ever heard about Don Gonzalo's career before he came to NYC. If I did, I have forgotten! I didn't even know that this REPICAO CD existed, until I found it on Amazon. I had heard of the SAR label, the distributor. But I was dissapointed in many regards with the recording and with the package in total.

There were no musician credits, or recording date information. Or information of any kind.
There was a lot of echo stepping all over the recording, very distracting.

While I suspect that Don Gonzalo was much older at the time of this recording (again, no info, just a blank liner face) maybe that's why his technique sounds so sloppy. The flute, specially the Cuban flute soloist style, is very demanding. So that's understandable if it's an older player. At the end, the CD raised more questions for me than it answered.

Whatever became of Don Gonzalo? What was his career like before coming to NYC? A lot of questions that this recording, what may well have been his last, made no effort to answer.

Don Gonzalo Fernandez
L.Callejon, There are two Albums of Felix Pupi Lagarreta where Don Gonzalo Fernandez was guesting. The first is Pupi y su charanga and the second is Los dos Mosqueteros (Fania VS63); None of these are available on the market yet. Let's hope that they will be very soon in the Digitally remastered... Read More
