Havana-born Latin music legends Candido and Graciela are two of the survivors of the Cubop movement of the late 1940s, which fused Cuban rhythms with big-band jazz. These masters of the art bring a unique style and easy camaraderie to this recording, highlighted by Graciela 's call-and-response interplay with the band and Candido's subtle wizardry on the conga drums. What you have is inolvidable, unforgettable.

Reviews

"... like stepping into a time machine back to the late 1940s, the golden age of the Palladium Ballroom ... Candido displays a technique and sense of timing that is as natural as breathing ... Graciela then adds the requisite majesty." - Jazz Times
