San Francisco may seem an unlikely place for the spirit of Cuban music to thrive (what about Miami?), but this is certainly the case with the Cubop record label. While other labels (RMM, Concord) lay on the smooth production, Cubop stays true to the roots, emphasizing the clavé, horns, and percussion that are at the music's core. "Viva Cubop: Jazz and the Afro-Cuban Way" is a 13-song sampler featuring the legends and new cats that are keeping the music vibrant and alive. Artists like conguero Francisco Aguabella, one of Cuba's greats; Papo Vazquez, who fuses Afro-Caribbean rhythms with his sensatational trombone playing; Bobby Matos, a leading figure in Latin Jazz; John Santos, a master of percussion; and London's Snowboy, who popularized the music in Europe. The subtitle of this CD should be "a taste of the real thing," since it is.
Fantastic rhytms and some of the best conga and timbales I have heard , a must for percussion fans ...
Loved the various artists
