A Cuban Legend
Concert Review by: Bryan Zoran
Venue: Blue Note (New York, New York
His introduction on the next tune led into some great solos featuring Fumero, Palau and Brito. After Cachao’s tasty introduction to the next selection, Bosch again played a pivotal solo. Valdes then took a piano solo and he and Cachao had an engaging musical conversation. The last selection was a traditional Cuban piece that featured the beautiful voices of Columbie and Palacio as well as the sweet sound of Fumero’s trumpet and Flores amazing conga rhythms
Israel López, Barbican, London
By Mike Hobart
To make the grade in Mambo you have to be a flamboyant soloist, and from the opening “Descarga Cachao” López paraded a succession of jazz-inflected virtuosi. Kiwzo Fumero’s high note flourishes on trumpet and reedsman Rafael Palau’s cool tenor saxophone stood out.
