Product description

Product Description

Having been an integral part of the Buena Vista Social Club series of albums and tours from their inception, trumpeter Manuel `Guajiro' Mirabal brings us his debut solo album. This album sees Guajiro leading a tribute to the spirit of the legendary giant of Cuban music, Arsenio Rodríguez. All of the tracks on the album were written by or associated with Arsenio. A specially assembled group in the mould of Arsenio's great trumpet led conjuntos of the 1940s and 50s performs the music here. Guajiro has been a key figure in the Cuban music scene for over 50 years and has played with just about every Cuban star you could care to mention. During World Circuit's now legendary recording blitz in Havana in 1996, Guajiro featured on all three of these seminal albums: Afro-Cuban All Stars `A Toda Cuba Le Gusta', `Buena Vista Social Club', and `Introducing Rubén González'. The trumpet occupies a hugely important role within Cuban music, and Guajiro is its archetypal exponent, making him the unquestioned choice as the trumpet soloist for all three albums. The phenomenon that followed these releases has brought about a renewed reverence for artists such as Guajiro, who is now in greater demand than ever. Personnel: Manuel `Guajiro' Mirabal - (trumpet), Orlando `Cachaito' López - (bass), Papi Oviedo - (tres), Roberto Fonseca - (piano), Manuel Galbán - (guitar), Miguel `Anga' Diaz - (congas), Amadito Valdés - (maracas), Ibrahim Ferrer - (vocal, track 3), Carlosa M.Calunga - (vocals), Ruben Gonzalez - (piano, track 11)

Like their peers the Funk Brothers, the ongoing, criminally unheard legacy of the Buena Vista Social Club's various legends continues to impress, and the emergence of 71 year-old Manuel Mirabal (a trumpeter of some repute in Cuban circles), for his spellbinding debut album, comes as no surprise. Those familiar with the premise of the Cuban grooves that were rediscovered through the original Buena Vista Social Club album and it's subsequent spin-off solo works will agree that the sound, feel and playing here ranks up with the greatest moments of this wonderful genre. Recorded as a tribute to Arsenio Rodriguez, a pioneer of Cuban music and modern salsa, even those unfamiliar will find much to love in this collection, not just in the fiery, masterful trumpet playing of El Guajiro, but also in the various guest vocalists (even newcomers and er, Gorillaz fans should recognize the none-more soulful vocals of Ibrahim Ferrer on "Deuda". Similarly, the backing musicians sound like the kind of band that are totally in simpatico with each other and work well to produce the finest grooves. With highlights too numerous to mention, this CD is essential to all, and a quiet contender for album of the year. --Thom Allott
