To make up for the failing post of this morning, some
son montuno to cheer you up. I saw them around the
time they made this cd. It was in Utrecht and I remember
how Marcos González made a big impression, great band.
Get this Cuban sweetness now..

My buddy René went to Cuba with his daughter, they
travelled around for two weeks and came home with
some real nice lp’s. Take this one by Septeto Nacional
de Ignacio Piñeiro, I fell for it straight away. What a
stunning record, the son is just breathtaking. I don’t
know about you, better get it and listen instantly,
once you’ve heard it there’s no turning back.
Thank you so very much René,
you’re the best..

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.

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.

Good afternoon, today I felt like playing a little merengue and
who sings a better merengue than Joseito Mateo ? This LP on
Ansonia of which I cant seem to find any information, brings

old microphone. Goza con el merengue de Joseito Mateo !

I have never heard one bad tune by these guys, everything
they play sounds great. This is an oldie on Ansonia, anyone
who knows from what year it is ? Los Guaracheros de Oriente
played all over the globe and with great succes everywhere.
From the almost unreal amount of downloads on the previous
LP I posted by these men, I would say, don’t miss it !

It was in 1997, when ‘Buena Vista Social Club’ launched their
historic first cd with Ry Cooder, that I learned about Pio Leiva.
He was one of the singers, that worked with Compay Segundo
since the 50’s. Leiva was one of the main performers of the
Montuno genre, they called him ‘el Montunero de Cuba’.
He wrote the number ‘Francisco Guayabal’ that became a hit
via Beny Moré and played with Bebo Valdes and Noro Moralez.
I was one of the lucky visitors of the Amsterdam Carré Theater
when Wim Wenders made his movie of the Buena Vista Social Club,
an unforgettable evening.
This is an album on his own name and it’s a great one.
Listen to Pio Leiva !
