Santo & Johnny had a big hit in the US in 1959 with their own composition, "Sleepwalking". It was a very pleasant, inoffensive instrumental that launched a wave of interest in latino music. "Mambo Sinuendo" is what Santo & Johnny would have put together today. It's simple, relaxing but engaging mood music, very evocative of sitting on a patio or hotel balcony in the summer sun, sipping rum and cola, reading a favourite book. It's also what you'd want on as background to making love. It's not cerebal but then it's not elevator music and, artistically, it's quite stunning. If you've been to Cuba this is what you'd listen to as reminder of your time there. Tasty.

Has any musician, dead or alive, appeared in a wider variety of musical settings than Ry Cooder? None comes to mind. The amazing thing about his cross-culturalism is how effectively he picks up the basic vibe of the music he's exploring while still putting his own stamp on the proceedings, all the while maintaining a deep (yet not slavish) respect as he playfully deconstructs and reassembles it.
His latest, Mambo Sinuendo, a dual project with Cuban guitar legend Manuel Galabán, strikes me as the finest Cooder record to date. I've listened to this remarkable album many times, and each listen has revealed something new: Cooder's tuba-like sound on "Bodas de Oro"; the nimble acoustic bass of Orlando "Cachaíto" Lopez, always establishing the perfect rhythmic underpinning; the deep swing melded to relaxed yet intense interaction that suffuses the whole record; the tricky rhythmic shifts that relocate a piece from Latin America to the American Southwest to Hawaii. It's because Cooder has (seemingly effortlessly) acquired such a broad and deep musical vocabulary that he's able to musically jet, as it were, from country to country with such ease. This album is a must have.

I bought this purely on the strength of Buena Vista Social Club. It could be describes as "Lounge". Most of the tracks are instrumental, giving it a bit of a jazz feel. It is hard to clasift the sound, maybe a bit of a jazz/pop cross-over. The opening track "Dru me negrita" is beautiful it has one of the many catchy rhythms on the album. It is similar to "Buena Vista" with the addition of Coder's Slide Guitar. In fact at times, I was reminded of Brain Eno's "Deep Blue Day". This album improves at each listening, there is some great interplay between the guitarists. Lost a star as tend to skip a few tracks, as they just get a bit cheesy and are not to my taste.

This is something a little different, with the usual Ry Cooder style, that I will find myself listening to time and time again, and with more coming across with each visit. It is good to find some music that's imaginative whilst still being accessible and pleasing to the ear.

It's great to see Ry back centre stage, albeit sharing the limelight with the accomplished Manuel Galban. It might be seen as cashing in on the Buena Vista phenomenon, but there are nods here to the Hawaiian and Tex_Mex 'Chicken Skin'
excursions of years gone by. Anyway who cares if he is cashing in, Ry Cooder deserves some commercial success and he might get it with this. This is a wonderful, relaxing album with production seemingly reduced to a minimum, and all the better for it. Laid-back and sensual on the slower tracks, with a quite beautiful version of 'Secret Love', it brings to mind Hank Marvin and Duane Eddy at times ('Los Twangueros' indeed!). The up-tempo numbers, such as 'Monte Adentro' and the title track (a possible hit single!), are vibrant thanks to a great rhythm section. 'Patricia' conjures up memories of Edmundo Ros and the cha-cha section of 'Come Dancing' (in fact quite a few tracks wouldn't seem out of place there!). I can see this album appearing all-over the place in samples and background music. I defy you to listen to this and sit still or stop your feet tapping. I'm off to borrow a set of bongos so I can join in.

Slide guitar virtuouso, singer-songwriter and all-round good bloke Ry Cooder has enjoyed a real renaissance in the last few years thanks largely to his groundbreaking work in bringing the music of Cuba to the western world in general - and a previously hostile United States in particular - following the success of his phenomenal Buena Vista Social Club project. Take a bunch of brilliant but ageing musicians, put them in a recording studio for the first time, sit back and watch the money roll in .... well, that's the cynical way of looking at it, but the art they gifted the world is truly breath-taking and I strongly recommend anyone check out the albums by these guys and also the movie of the same name if you want the true flavour of Cuba. This, on the other hand, is a bit of a disappointment. Cooder has obviously hanging out in Havana, smoking too many cigars (or maybe something else) as this is SO laid back it's falling over. There's nothing inherently wrong with the album, it's just a bit ponderous and compared to some of the great man's earlier output it seems like he's stuck in low gear throughout when you really want him to put his foot to the floor. It's a nice Sunday morning record, especially on a sunny day when the birds are singing and you just wanna chill for a bit ... but here's hoping the next one is altogether hotter.
