I like this album a lot more than Son Mundano. It has a less jazzy or salsa feel to it, and has a wide variety of folkloric song styles such as son montuno, afro, yambu, guaguanco and bombo. Some of Nelson's sons do a great job providing vocals on some of the tracks. Highlights for me also include a great version of an Isaac Oviedo song called "Santero de Buena Paz" and a tres duet of the latin standard "Tres Lindas Cubanas." I highly recommend this CD.
I didn't know what to expect with this record. It could have been boring and filled with displays of guitar virtuosity. However, this is NOT the case. In fact, this album by Nelson Gonzalez is SPECTACULAR! There is great variety throughout the entire record. The rhythms change fluidly from one song to the next, and demonstrate that N.G. has a deep understanding of a wide array of Latin grooves. But, beyond this, the album as a whole GROOVES HARD! I have listened to this album several times now, and have been swept up by it time after time. Lastly, if you area fan of the Tres Cubano, well... what can I say, this album will probably make you a very happy-camper.
