Product Description

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 new 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. A celebration featuring: Candido Camero, congas Graciela, vocals Sonny Bravo, piano Frederico Britos Ruiz, violin Andy Gonzalez, bass Nelson Gonzalez, tres Eddie Perales, flute Manny Orquendo, percussion and special guest Xiomara Laugart, vocals "EXCRUTATINGLY BEAUTIFUL" - Jazziz ". . . 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." - JazzTimes "...very sabrosa, or swingingly tasty...simply realized the agelessness of both repertoire and their interpreters." - All About "...a testament to their unforgettable talents...a delightful imprint of the musical gifts that Candido and Graciela have shared throughout their illustrious careers...classic sounds from a classy couple." - Latin Beat (April 2004) "From Chesky Records, Inovlidable with Latin Cubop legends Candido and Graciela, is just that: unforgettable. These two fine artists come together for this recording with a stellar band and revitalize such tunes as 'Conga Jam,' 'Cachita, and 'Desvelo.' Don't mention retirement, these two, thankfully, have much to say and record. Let's h ope for a second recording soon!" - (March 2004) " exquisite jam session that's equal parts a family reunion and an exercise in nostalgia." - Global Rhythm (July 2004) "If you have even the remotest interest in Afro-Cuban jazz, then this CD is a must get! Recording quality on this disc is in the Chesky tradition, in other words, amazing!" -Audiophile Audition (March 2004)
