5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Latin Guitar Music
This is a wonderful CD. I have listened to it many times and still enjoy it. Such beautiful music which sounds like you are on a Mexican vacation. I enjoyed their Exotico CD, and Riverwalk is even better! Buy it, you will love it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Every selection sounds the same
The reviewer from Austin, TX is exactly right. Don't waste your money (not even for a used copy). I purchased this CD used from a local music store and ended up re-selling it back to them within a few weeks. All the selections sound the same, the beat is the same and all the background music sounds programmed. There are other artists out there that are much more original in their compositions. Try Johnannes Linstead, Luis Villegas, Oscar Lopez, Jesse Cook. Also, the reviewer is correct in their opinion of the Real Player audio. Many times I have purchased CD's that sound O.K. on the Real Player only to be disappointed when I play them on my home system. Try not to rely only on Real Audio samples when you purchase. You may be disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars More Salsa Please! Mucho Mas!
Do you like excellent guitar with an LatinoAfroCuban beat? This is the CD for you. My review is being written to request Seniors Lara y Reyes to record more music with plenty of salsa. My favorite on this CD is "Satellite Island" because of its fiesta flavor. Noches San Miguel, Black Mamba, El Castillo and River Road are all songs that are excellent in both rhythm and virtuoso guitar playing. El Turco even provides some flamenco. I am having fun playing along with my conga and djembe drums with the CD and I would be happy to purchase any new CD's that stay on this Salsa track. Por favor!

5-0 out of 5 stars Pure Guitar Virtuosity
These guys both play guitar as well as I've ever heard. Put them together and the music they create is simply amazing. Don't expect singing or sound effects, just loping guitar riffs with a back beat and alot of hooks. If you like Shahin & Sepehr or Jesse Cook you will like Lara & Rayes.

1-0 out of 5 stars DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!
I was really excited about getting this CD. I love the Gipsy Kings and so Amazon linked me to these guys. When I listened to the Real Audio, the playback was not too good but I decided to buy it anyway because it sounded close enough to the Gipsy Kings. Well folks, if you have Real Audio, watch out, what you hear is not always what you get. While the guitar playing is certainly at a professional (resort lounge)level, the music and production lacks any sense of a human being playing. These are two guys with a drum machine, a keyboard that sounds like a cheap Casio, and two guitars. That's it folks! Absolutely horrible. Every song sounds the same, and the bass patern for almost every song even sounds the same. This tends to happen when your using electronic instruments instead of an actual band. This music sounds more conducive in a shopping mall than any Mexican vacation.

I mean come on, what's going on here? Were the only people who wrote reviews for this album friends of these two guys and was I the only one who got suckered into buying this junk...I guess so. I WANT MY MONEY BACK! ... Read more

This group of Cuban youngbloods have wisely chosen to keep the tradition of the Cuban Son alive and not come out with another Timba crap CD.This is pure Cuban Son, with a very contemporary/modern feel.AWESOME.

The singers as well as the players are FIRST CLASS AAA!!!!!!!!

DO NOT MISS THIS ONE!!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Son al rojo vivo
El septeto "Asere con su albun "Cuban Soul" es una muestra de que aun el son sigue vigente en Cuba y aun mas,que la nueva generacion ama y respeta esta musica.La variedad de generos como,changui,cha cha cha,guajira,son ect.,hacen de este disco una muestra feaciente de las raices cubanas.Los arreglos no pierden la identidad de cada genero apesar de que en ellos va un toque contemporanio.El timbre del cantante se adecua a la agrupacion y las interpretaciones nos reafirman su conviccion de sonero.El trecero pone punto final dando muestra de su virtuosismo y conosimiento de su instrumento.No cabe duda de que este disco es Son al Rojo Vivo.Felicidades "Asere"y estamos esperando el proximo.

5-0 out of 5 stars Modern take on classic Cuban music
Well-known Cuban tunes but the album has a modern sound - this may be because the musicians are younger than is the norm for players of this type of classic son.The songs are standards but Asere's interpretation is notat all staid."Cubansoul" turns out to be a fitting title forthis disc.A fantastic album that you won't be disappointed in. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars El Rey es El Rey
Just try to sit still while listening to this fine collection of salsa from El Rey!If you only own one Tito Puente CD, this should be it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Album by "El Rey De Timbal"
Ihave been a fan of Tito Puente for about 4 years now andI have to say this has got to be my favorite album of his because you can never stopping dancing when listening to this cd.My 3 favorite songs are Dejame Sonar, Celia Y Tito, and El #100. So if you are in the mood to dance to great latin music then this cd is for you. I highly recommend this album.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Salsa DANCE Music
There's great salsa music and there is great salsa dance music. As any dedicated dancer looking for good music knows, you can't trust a non-dancer to tell what salsa music is great for dancing as opposed to just listening.As a dedicated dancer always in search of good dance music I can say without reservation that this is one of the best salsa dance CDs you can buy. It's a tribute to the late Tito Puente for his 100th full length album. Its got a great all star cast including Oscar d'Leon, Celia Cruz, Tito Nieves, Jose Alberto and others all backed up by Puentes infectious rhythms that make it impossible to sit still. My three favorites: Salsumba, El 100, and Dejame Sonar.The only song that's not suitable for salsa dancing is the Bolero Medley, but hey it's not salsa.The cuban son on the album is a good practice tune for beginners just getting the hang of the beat since it has a true salsa/son rhythm at a nice slow tempo.If your a dancer, buy it!

4-0 out of 5 stars Mambo King's reign continues
This was definitely a great collection of old collaboration partners of Tito Puente as well as new rising stars. You can't go wrong with this CD in your collection. From the powerful "Dejame Sonar" by Tony Vega,to the soft and smooth tunes of "Bolero Medley", this CD is apleasureable listening experience ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars 8 Smoldering Latin Jazz Tracks from a Legend
Puente showed that no matter if a song was written with a Latin beat in mind or not he can still transform them into something special.He did so with this album without making a mockery of either the Latin sound or the original style of the songs themselves. His blend of jazz-salsa fusion was remarkable on this project with his ensemble of other gifted musicians and jazz veterans. I had to listen to his take of On Broadway from George Benson to see if it could be achieved with a different and ethnic musical style. Bravo, he did it ! Each track is about 5-6 minutes of well crafted and performed tracks (some Tito's others from other writers or artists). For anyone with no Tito experience and not wanting to spend a lot of money on an entire c.d. Puente collection this title serves as an intermediate intro. or brief flavor of a Latin jazz legend !... ... Read more

The United Nations Orchestra was created by jazz legend Dizzy Gillespieto "showcase the varied influences that he considers valuable to the developmentof jazz." The 15-member ensemble, comprised of famous Latin and black Americanmusicians, is a true all-star orchestra, 10 of its members being bandleaders intheir own right. On this 1990 recording, the orchestra was on its last date of aEuropean tour, and it pulls out all the stops on this fiery big-band blowout.All the soloists--saxophonists Paquito D'Rivera and James Moody, trumpetersArturo Sandoval and Claudio Rodit, trombonists Slide Hampton and Steve Turre-- attempt to keep up with Gillespie and the turbulent percussive undercurrent.This leads to a lot of passionate soloing, along with some requisitegrandstanding, but even that seems to fit into the all-star concept of the band.This is extroverted, aggressively confident big-band music meant to dazzle anddelight. The driving rhythm section is given center stage on Gillespie's"Tanga," whereby a lengthy section of solos by drummer Ignacio Berroa, masterpercussionist Airto Moreira, and ace conga man Giovanni Hidalgo brings the housedown once again. --Wally Shoup ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Anything but Royal
This was a very disappointing CD on several counts: 1) The recording was very weak--equivalent to an AM broadcast: 2) The All-World band seemed to sleep-walk their way through an unispiring performance; and 3) Arturo Sandoval (the reason I purchased the CD in the first place) had a very minor role and his brilliance could not save this boring self-indugent effort on the part of the band. The only thing worse than purchasing this CD would be to have been in Royal festival Hall on that fateful night.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest jazz CDs
This is one of the best jazz CDs I own. It's amazing to listen to Diz play. Also, Arturo Sandoval's work on this album is amazing. He demonstrates his four octave range! Definitely worth buying.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gillespie, Sandoval, D'Rivera... what more could you ask?
This CD was recorded live at the Royal Festival Hall, London, in the late 80's. It also exists, I believe, as a DVD and a VHS Video. Having seen the concert at which it was recorded, I would certainly recommend the visuals as well as the music.

The quality of the CD recording is excellent throughout, except for a couple of moments at the end of "A Night in Tunisia" where Sandoval is slightly "off mike". That said, engineering is crisp - this album has all of the benefits of a live recording, with none of the detriments. Enjoyably, the producer has chosen to keep Gillespie's bridges from song to song in place, rather than edit each track into one neatly digestible package.

Gillespie's playing on this album is typical of the maestro in his later years, and is a pleasure to listen to. However, the real star of this album is Arturo Sandoval, who was at his stratospheric best when this album was recorded. The exchanges between Gillespie and Sandoval on "And then She Stopped" are worth the price of the Album alone, as is the wonderfully arranged "Tin Tin Deo". James Moody and Paquito D'Rivera provide a wonderful reed section, and D'Rivera in particular plays with real fire.

It's hard to pick out a particular track which is best; they each have their own character. However, the rhythm section plays with extraordinary warmth and attention to detail throughout, and the real joy of the music shines throuhg. If you like later Gillespie, are a Sandoval fan, or just like great modern big band music, this album is a must. ... Read more

This was the first of Cuban pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba's recordings to appear in the United States, and it's a stunning introduction to his work. He's more than ably supported by Charlie Haden and Jack DeJohnette, with Haden's fundamentalist approach to the bass acting as a secure anchor to Rubalcaba's frequent flights of virtuosity and DeJohnette's polyrhythmic approach. With his deep roots in the rhythmic language of Cuban music, Rubalcaba brings a subtle and complex pulse to even his most reflective moments at the keyboard. He's also rooted in some of the more adventurous paths that jazz took in the 1960s, as that stellar rhythm section would suggest. It shows in the original approaches that he finds to Coltrane's "Giant Steps," Bill Evans's "Blue in Green," and Ornette Coleman's "The Blessing." --Stuart Broomer ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!
Lots of great technique *and* beautiful music, despite what other reviewers may say. The opening statement in CIRCUITO is pretty jarring and may strike some listeners as being nonmusical, but it's actually pretty similar to the unaccompanied jags Brad Mehldau occassionally takes, a little chaos before the return of order. Includes some really beautiful readings of SANDINO, SILVER HOLLOW, BLUE IN GREEN, among others. I got this two months ago and have been listening to it as much all my other CDs combined. Really outstanding jazz.

1-0 out of 5 stars Highly overrated
There has been much fuss during the past years about this cuban pianist. If it is chops that you're after - you've got it. On the other hand, if you're looking for music - turn elsewhere. Chops are what this guy is all about. Techniquely he is truly awesome, but he doesn't really have the faintest clue about the aesthetics of jazz music. The word "groove" cannot even be used in this context, since Gonzalo has no idea of how to swing in a jazz-like manner. His typewriter-like phraziation sounds hysterical as he rushes the time like crazy. Harmonically he makes a huge fool of himself in "Giant Steps", where most of the notes he plays are total garbage and have nothing to do with the chord changes. If you really do want to listen to mr. Rubalcapa, my suggestion is that you try out some of his earlier stuff where he operates in a more latin-american context.

4-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful trio album with a Latin flavor
This album features Jack Dejohnette on drums and Charlie Haden on bass along with Rubalcaba. The music doesn't groove as hard as "Inner Voyage," but the music has lyrical quality. Check out versions of Ornette Coleman's "The Blessing" and Coltrane's "Giant Steps."

5-0 out of 5 stars Gonzalo, the best young musician to come along in over a de
Gonzalo Rubalcaba is the best I've heard in quite some time. I am a jazz pianist with five CD's in the stores and on Amazon. If you haven't heard Gonzalo, you are really missing out on greatness. Gonzalo will be around for a very long time. I had the pleasure of hearing him at syphony hall here in Chicago and he blew me away. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Brazil and jazz = good stuff
Mann gives us an incredibly smoothed-out old-school latin jazz workout much in the vein of his work at the time. This particular double-album CD is a steal not only at its price, but because the quality of the music on both records is so consistently good. Using his flute to guide the ambience and not simply to embellish it, the tracks are infectious bits of bachelor pad/martini napkin-wet coolness; so much so that even on tracks that burn-out a little ("Menina Feia" and "Voce E Eu" leap to mind) retain their essential Mann-ness. This double record is a great place to start with his fairly large catalogue.

4-0 out of 5 stars The child of a happy marriage.
Herbie Mann travelled to Rio in 1962 and came back with the album "Do the Bossa Nova", today a classic example of that happy marriage of jazz and Brazilian popular music. He teamed with Castro Neves, Baden Powell and the great Tom Jobim, the composer of Quiet Nights and The Girl from Ipanema to cover bossa nova standards and more percussive mainstream samba numbers. The result is irregular but always inspired and worth listening. The track Consolação, a dueto of flute and guitar, Mann and Powell, is hypnotic! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing! This album sparkles!
This album is Arturo's first album after being let into the United States to live from Cuba, and is appropriately titled "Flight To Freedom". This guy is one of my all-time favorite trumpet players and he definitely shows why on this recording. Amazing playing, astounding range, huge sound, knockout technique. A lot of the tunes have the Latino AMERICAN feel, which is different and more American sounding than, say, the music Arturo did with Irakere. It has a fusion influence and even has some rock flavor in it in places. However, it still is full of life and energy, and is wonderful to hear as expected. Arturo is much more than a flashy musician. He's a flashy musician with a passion in his playing. The album opens up with the lively "Flight To Freedom", which has Arturo trading off phrases with the saxophonist and they basically are setting you up for the album to come. "Last Time I Saw You" has some amazing trumpet playing from Arturo and is also a cool composition. If this music was in the mainstream, this song would be a hit. It's catchy and the rhythm section is great. Chick Corea stops by on piano for this track. "Caribeno" has an annoying intro (that guitar) but then segways into a wonderful latin tune. Arturo really swings on this one and hits some extraordinarily high notes at the beginning (including a really loud F over Double C). He takes a more laid-back approach with flugelhorn on "Samba De Amore", which is a beautiful song. This is the type of song you could sit back and eat while listening to it. Ironically, the only song I don't particularly care for on this set is the Chick Corea song. It is repetitive and doesn't really go anywhere. Arturo has some good muted trumpet licks but that's about it. "Rene's Song" is a lively, percussion driven song that is nice to hear with Arturo digging in on trumpet again. Following that is a beautiful, tasty rendition of the classic standard "Body And Soul". Arturo plays on flugelhorn again and this is classic. Unbelievable ballad work. This proves he is one of the best all-around jazz players. Equally impressive is the remake of the Dizzy Gillespie classic "Tanga", which is great trumpet playing from Arturo with a harmon mute. I have seen Dizzy perform this tune and Arturo definitely stays true to the style and composition. "Caprichosos De La Habana" is a wonderful song about Cuba's biggest city. It's a lively, nostalgic return to Arturo's life before America (the happy parts of it anyway). He plays masterfully here. Finally is the recording of a song everyone who has seen the Arturo Sandoval Story will know, "Marianela" (the song he plays at the baseball field). This is a beautiful, heartfelt dedication to his wife. And talk about heroic trumpet playing: Arturo plays the whole thing up an octave for the last minute and a half ending this piece literally on a HIGH note (a double G# to be exact). Wow.

If you are a fan of Arturo, or Cuban music in general, get this, you'll almost certainly enjoy it. If you're not into Arturo, however, you might not enjoy this as much as I did. If you like a feel-good album and you like great trumpet playing, this is probably one for you. Arturo soars. I personally found this to be a very enjoyable listen.

5-0 out of 5 stars caribeno
it's sparkling, scintillating latino jazz. The trumpet vulcan Artoro Sandoval celebrates this amazing stimulating kind of music as a synthesis between Jazzrock and Salsa in an incomparable way. Enjoy it! Who never heard that sound is missing lot of happiness and acoustical satisfaction. ... Read more

This CD, recorded at Pittsburgh's Manchester Craftsman's Guild in 2001, is a reunion of stellar Dizzy Gillespie sidemen and a tribute to his music. This big band features trumpeters Claudio Roditi and Terrell Stafford, and features Gillespie's former protégé Jon Faddis as conductor. The ensemble includes tenor saxmen Jimmy Heath and James Moody and trombonist Slide Hampton, with former young lions Renee Rosnes and alto saxophonist Antonio Hart. Fresh reads of Gillespie-associated compositions and standards are highlighted, from the Afro-tinged "A Night in Tunisia" to the Benny Golson ballad, "I Remember Clifford." "Jessica's Day" by Quincy Jones and the fiery labyrinthine, Gillespie-penned title track, along with Thelonious Monk's "Round Midnight," also show that Dizzy Gillespie's music and legacy will live on in this century. --Eugene Holley Jr. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets...without the Master
I was present for this recording as well, in the intimate confines of the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild in Pittsburgh, and it was a BLAST. Jon Faddis did a great job of 'carrying on' for the late Master...and just seeing the reed section assembled there that night - all of whom were thoughouly enjoying themselves...Jimmy Heath in particular, who never stopped grinning the whole night -Moody, Heath, Wess, Smulyan, and Hart, along with greats Slide Hampton, Pittsburgher Jay Ashby, and his brother Marty on guitar, Claudio Roditi, Terrell Stafford, and the suprise of the night for myself and many others, the incredible piano playing of Renee Rosnes, who sparkled. Drummer Dennis Makrel did not disappoint, nor did percussionist "Duke" either! Being there was a real trip, I must say, but somehow that magic didn't quite translate onto this CD, in my opinion. Still, this is a swinging, talented band, and Jon Faddis was as good as anyone can be stepping into the over-sized shoes of Diz. For the real deal, Live also, I would suggest Dizzy's "Live at Newport 1957". Although these arrangements are tight and grooving, some are nearly carbon copies of those Diz gems at Newport; like "I Remember Clifford", and "Night In Tunisia".

5-0 out of 5 stars Things To Come Dizzy Gillespie Alumni All-Star Big Band
This group sure hasn`t lost any of the drive or spirit of Dizzy`s bands. All the trumpet men are outstanding and powerful. A couple of them even have chops reminiscent of Dizzy himself. One thing else I do have to say though; there was only one DIZZY GILLESPIE. But take my word, this is a great band with some outstanding trumpet players.

5-0 out of 5 stars I was there!
I had the distinct pleasure of being at this concert. It was recorded at the Manchester Craftsman's Guild, a small and acoustically excellent concert hall in Pittsburgh. The album does justice to what was one of the 3 or 4 best live jazz performances I have ever attended. John Faddis has turned into a first rate orchestra leader, and gets a chance to wail once in a while. The assembled stars are all in good form. Renee Rosnes, with whom I was not previously familiar, was a revelation.

5-0 out of 5 stars Poncho Sanchez-Soul Sauce
If you are a Cal Tjader &/or a Poncho Sanchez fan as I am, then you must add this cd to your collection. Poncho takes Cal's songs & takes them to a higher level.... It's my favorite Poncho CD. Ruben Estrada is outstanding on the vibes.I'm sure Cal is looking down from heaven & waving a white flag & saying bravo Poncho bravo...... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Must buy if you love latin music
Jorge Dalto is that musician that you will stop and say "who is that??" when your are listening to the radio when that very special song catches your ear.You pray the the DJ will run down the play list, or that you can call in.Yes, the music is that special.

Dalto's energy on "Urban Oasis" is boundless, and the cast of muscians that he brings together on this CD is world class.Sit back, pour a wonderful glass of red (perhaps a Paloma 2001 Merlot??), dim the lights and sail away on the "Good Ship Dalto". Best song on the CD is La Costa....and yes, when you listen, close your eyes and you will be there!!

If you like this, please buy Mark Murphy's Brazil Song.Hope you enjoyed this review all of you Latin lovers.We have a very special club, don't we!!! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Tango for Piano Lovers
I bought this CD on the strength of some of the other Enrique Chia works with which I am familiar and because I am an aficionado of tango. Tangos Y Nostalgia is a pretty good CD. While Chia does not bring to tango the piano heroics of a Pablo Ziegler, he handles this somewhat difficult material quite well. There is not a bad song on the album.
I like his arrangements of the Discepolo/Mores classic Uno, Celos (Jalousie), Orquideas Bajo La Luz De La Luna, Milonga Sentimental, and Madreselva. These are the songs on which Chia's virtuosity is most evident. The weakest cut is a lackluster No Llores Por Mi Argentina.
The rest of the CD is quite enjoyable and winds up with an emotional rendering of El Dia Que Me Quieres by one of the grand old dames of tango, Libertad Lamarque. While her voice is of course not what it once was (she must be quite old), the passion clearly rings out.
While pure tango fans may find Tangos Y Nostalgia a little tame, piano fans will find this to be tango tailor-made for piano lovers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Tangos & Nostalgia
Really good piano performances of Tangos are not easy to find, and this is one of the best I have located. The renditions have a very authentic feel to them. Tango dancers will find that the tempo of the performances is genuine, these performances have not been "smoothed over" into easy listening at all. Piano enthusiasts (I am one) will find Chia's style to be bright and energetic. The emphasis is very much on the piano, with a minimum of surrounding orchestration. I definately recommend this CD, and I will be buying more of Enrique Chia. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars "Dance Mania" Again
After years of looking through CD bins in search of this title, and only coming up with the commonplace "Volume 1," I was delighted to see that Tito Puente's "Dance Mania Volume 2" had finally been reissued. Well it certainly was worth the wait because now it's available at a budget price to boot! Both of the "Dance Mania" Volumes are an essential look at the classic Afro-Cuban music of late 1950s and early 1960s. "Volume 2" boasts classic cuts like "A Gozar Timbero," "Guancona," "Separala Tambien" and "Baila Como Es." You have to be dead not to feel this multi-layered rhythmic groove, but the musicianship of Tito Puente and His Orchestra is also spectacular, so it appeals to both your mind and body. You'll be dancing in the streets after purchasing "Dance Mania Volume 2." ... Read more
