5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Jesse! October 1, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I just got it today - and love it! A great mix of upbeat dancing type of melodies and gentle heartstring tugging, harmonious pieces of music. Jesse's fluency on guitar never ceases to entertain me. I have all his CD's and love every one of them. Well done again Jess!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply fantastic October 9, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Another great album from Jesse Cook. I have always been his fan and It is amazing to me that he keeps his fans satisfied continuously. The album has some great dance tunes at the same time this album vary in tempo and tone yet maintain authenticity. Tracks like the first Bogot By Bus, Santa Marta, Gaita and the cinematic Bombay Diner set the mood for mystery, exploration and celebration. I have been listening non stop to this new album since i downloaded the tracks online. It has been worth every dime. I am certain that he will continue to amaze his fans with his creations. God bless you Jesse.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Must Have" CD! December 24, 2009
By Connie
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Jesse Cook's newest CD, The Rumba Foundation, is a spectacular and must have CD for those of us who love flamenco music. The mixture of Cuban/African rhythems with flamenco music brings a whole new experience to one's listening pleasure. This is a CD that you will want to listen to over and over again. It touches your soul as you lose yourself in the music. There is a good mixture of slow and fast pieces. My favorite piece is "Afternoon at Satie's". I love that ethereal sounding instrument in the background. (What is it?) Overall, there is a nice flow from one musical piece to the next. I especially like how he uses the Improv 1 and Improv 2 as musical segues to their following pieces. In addition, I enjoy hearing the distant sound of the musicans (dancers?) in the piece "Gaita". I feel like I'm there live watching and listening to this performance! The only piece that seems kind of odd to be included in this CD is "Cecilia". While I think Cook's rendition of this Simon & Garfunkel song is really good, I'm not sure why it is part of this CD.

Major talent and totally enjoy ea. product that comes on the market. First in line to buy. Not sure about "Cecelia", had to check the track list to confirm. Why?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Long-Awaited Gift September 9, 2011
By D Bunn
Format:MP3 Music
This album, like everything I have heard from him, is simply superb. He crosses boundaries both musically and nationally, and does so with compassionate ease. I am a screenwriter and novelist, and my dream is to one day have him do a soundtrack for a film I write. He is that good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jesse Cook Never Disappoints March 17, 2010
By Lauren
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I've been listening to Jesse Cook for about 20 years, and love his music. This new album is no exception. I'm always reminded of my vacations to Spain, Mexico and Egypt while listening, and find the exotic rhythms relaxing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bogota by Bus June 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is like being on bus in Bogota, or taking the bus from Cartagena to Bogota and experiencing all of the beauty of this incredible country and its people. The music makes you experience the place in a way that is surprising and ,for me, an incredible journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb smooth rumba guitar
This is classic new world Spanish style guitar. I can't say flamenco, but it is one of his best albums yet, smooth, polished, flowing, and consistent through the whole album. Read more
