Trio Matamoros – Trio Matamoros
Ansonia SALP 1282, 1996

Good morning, yesterday I was clearly not very much awake
yet. The album we had with Los Matamoros was absolutely
by Miguel Matamoros and Trio Matamoros. Our friend Ian
already suggested it and he’s right. Stupid enough I had posted
this record two years ago which contains exactly the same songs.
I clearly didn’t do my homework properly. One way or the other,
Trio Matamoros was indeed one of the most popular in their era
and made many wonderful songs. Ciro Rodriguez, Rafael Cueto
and Miguel Matamoros had been inseperable for over thirty-five
years. They were the pride of Cuba. Today therefore another
elpee with their sweet music, enjoy listening ..

Goede morgen, ik was gisteren duidelijk nog niet helemaal wak-
ker. De plaat die ik postte met Los Matamoros was absoluut met
miguel Matamoros en zijn Trio. Onze vriend Ian suggereerde dit
al en hij heeft gelijk. Stom genoeg heb ik twee jaar geleden zelf
deze elpee al gepost die dezelfde nummers bevat. Doe toch je
huiswerk wat beter Moos, ehem .. Hoe dan ook, Trio Matamoros
was in de jaren de trots van Cuba en maakte vele mooie nummers.
Vandaag daarom nog zo’n fijn album. Ciro Rodriguez, Rafael Cueto
en Miguel Matamoros waren meer dan 35 jaar onafscheidelijk.
luister wederom met veel plezier ..

Celina Gonzalez, Adalberto y su Son
Celina con Frank y Adalberto
Areito / Egrem 1987

celina-gonzalez-front

Celina Gonzalez and her powerful voice never disappoints.
She appears on this 1987 album with the band of Adalberto
Alvarez. The son has become more modern over time but is
still a delight. Celina is the force that carries the sound to
certain heights. Produced by Frank Fernandez..

Celina Gonzalez en haar krachtige vokalen stellen nooit teleur.
Ze verschijnt op deze plaat met de groep van Adalberto Alvarez.
de son is door de jaren heen wel een stuk moderner gaan klinken
maar is nog steeds zeer de moeite waard. Celina is de motor die
de sound tot zekere hoogte draagt. geproduceerd
door Frank Fernandez..

Carlos Embales – Septeto Nacional Ignacio Piñeiro
Siboney / Egrem 1990

Carlos Embales, front, cd size

Most of time, Bolero is too sweet for my ears but Carlos Embales
brings it with some little rough edges that make it exactly right.
Embales is famous for his rumba but for this occasion he treats us
with Bolero, Guaguancó, Pregón and Son, his beats are imbeatable.

Pio Leiva – …Oye Como Suena, Maype

It must have been 1997 or 8 when one of my friends gave me this ticket
for my birthday. It was for a night in the Amsterdam theater ‘Carré’.
Performing that evening was the fantastic group, Buena Vista Social Club.
It was also my first encounter with Pio Leiva who was one of the old
Cuban singers in the original set up. Wim Wenders was filming the band
for his movie that evening and we had a sweet time. This is an old LP
by Pio Leiva I found not so long ago. One of our visitors requested
some Cuban folk and I thought this one to be appropriate.

1 Oye como suena
