Jane Bunnett

Spirits Of Havana
Import CD (Universal/Pimienta 160526), Released 1992;
Description:
A work of art. Period.
Reviews:
"One of the productions of the last few years that excels. Just before his death, Guillermo Barretto collaborated with Canadian flautist Jane Bunnett to truly capture the spirit of Havana music. The supporting cast of Merceditas Valdes, Gonzalo Rubalcaba and Grupo Yoruba Andabo was nothing to sneeze at. My favorite tune is 'Yo Siempre Oddara.'" (Raul Fernandez 98/99 Catalog)
"Jane Bunnet is dazzling! And not quite by coincidence has she surrounded herself with some of Cuba's top musicians. She has truly captured the 'Spirits of Havana.' A must! (Chico Alvarez 96/97 Catalog)
"When roots are properly integrated into jazz, anything goes. One of the finest jazz albums recorded in Cuba in the past decade was made by Canadian reedslady Jane Bunnet. 'G.M.S.' and 'Yo Siempre Oddara' echo Cachao's seminal jam sessions. I'll listen to Merceditas Valdés sing the phone book any day of the week." (Nat Chediak 96/97 Catalog)
