This album is a nice showcase of Guajiro's talent. Cuban brass is not everyone's cup of tea, but if it is this is a treat.

I have most of the BVSC CD's and this is the best if you like the more brassy sound as favoured by the 2007 Buena Vista tour: it's partly a reflection of the sad demise of the (mainly) vocalist members of BV but also closer to the more "big band" Afro-Cuban All-Stars' music. Guajiro Mirabal is such a great trumpet player; get this and play it loud on a hot summer's evening!!

For those of you captured by the Buena Vista Social Club it can be frustrating identifying further albums of a similar quality. The first Afro-Cuban All-Stars was fantastic and I really enjoy Ruben Gonzalez. Well this is one you can buy with absolute confidence - it does not disappoint.There are no duds among the individual tracks; execution is brilliant,vocals are beautifully delivered, production is crystal clear and Mirabal's trumpet dazzles - the whole ensemble really cooks. Get it!

I have just read David Garcia's book "Arsenio Rodríguez: and the transnational flows of Latin Popular music". Luckily, there are now a few original recordings available of this son montuno style master. He was copied by many of the younger salsa performers, like Johnny Pacheco and many others, but was often barred from performing on the major stages. Racism, his own lack of adaptation to the big town up beat tastes, and for other reasons, Rodriguez was forgotten by many.

Mirabal's record consists only of Rodriguez' music, which is more subtle, intricate, and challenges the dancers to feel the music, not only the beat of the drums. Read the book, listen to Mirabal, and then go to the source!
