5.0 out of 5 stars Swaying, snake-hipped Latin jazz and more 12 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD
Delightful soundtrack from a wonderful, animated film. It inspired me to to watch 'Chico and Rita' again. The soundtrack may encourage others to see it for the first time. If so, all the better to watch such a rightly acclaimed movie in any case. Normally I'd give the album 4 stars , only because unless you've seen the movie then perhaps it makes it all a little less complete with no point of reference from memory ? However, I'll give it a 5 star rating to put it up there where it belongs. I really cannot understand anyone complaining about the content of a soundtrack when what they want to hear is not part of the film in the first place.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 8 Feb 2012
By none
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, very well done on many levels, so decided to send for the soundtrack. I expected more of the smokey, sensual female vocals but got too much of the upbeat tracks that were far too similar. If that's what you like then go for it, but if you want more of the slow and sexy, you won't find it here. The artwork and presentation though, are excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful music! 9 Sep 2011
By danjammin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Very rarely buy CDs anymore but was struck after seeing the Chico & Rita movie/cartoon. Thought the movie was great, the music superb. Being somewhat obscure, it took a little time to track down a vendor. As with so many items, Amazon to the rescue.

This music works so well in many environments - this is pure latin soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic and sexy 3 Mar 2012
By Regina Y. Nunley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I watched the film at the Landmark showing with Director Trueba speaking afterwards. The music is hypnotic, sexy, soulful and IS the movie..A passionate friend gave me the cd this week, and I will probably play it til the music is ingrained in my head permanently...such a wonderful document of a time when music made every sinew of one's being sway..and shimmy...You can't help but want more of this genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great music but.... 13 April 2012
By D. Crawford - Published on Amazon.com
I love the music and I guess I should have figured out from the fact that this album is the original sound track BUT some of the tracks are reprises that are 30-45 seconds long. It gives you musical whiplash. Just when you are getting into the song....it's over. I plan on going back through and deleting the short reprises and intros. Still the music is fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love in music 8 April 2012
By Steven B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a superb, moving soundtrack to a truly superb, moving and outrageously romantic film, as only the love story between two Afro-Cuban jazz musicians could be. The album stands on its own as a great advertisement for Afro-Cuban jazz, but after seeing the movie it becomes even more devastatingly touching and uplifting. If that sounds like an over-the-top critique, then it is only appropriate to one of the great romantic films and albums of recent years. A triumph, both film and album, for all concerned. The song "A Mayra/Lily", repeated over and over as it is, will have you crying--and crying for more before the album is over. At least that was my reaction--a wonderful gift from Bebo Valdes, Idania Valdes, Trueba, Mariscal, and all who came together to make this piece of great art.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chico & Rita's melodies.... 11 Jun 2011
By 1m2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Score! Love the music!
I don't any thing else like it, it's a first!
I have the recent Sabor Ah mi remix by Luis Miguel but that's about it.
Lovely melodies, relaxing sounds!
Shipped from Argentina so it took a little long but was worth the wait.
