Bebo Valdes

Bebo Rides Again!
CD (Universal/Pimienta 360615), Released 1995; Re-Issued 2004
Editor's Pick:
Back in stock. When originally released in 1995 on the Messidor label this was Bebo's first new release in 30 years! With Carlos "Patato" Valdés, Paquito D'Rivera, Juan-Pablo Torres, Amadito Valdes and many others.
Highly Recommended. (BP, 2004-05-07)
"One of the most fresh and original Latin jazz CDs of this decade. Bebo Valdes is a prolific composer and wonderful pianist. Here he works with a range of musicians some of whom live in Cuba like Amadito Valdes and others based in New York. Great guitar work by Carlos Emilio Morales." (Raul Fernandez 98/99 Catalog)
"This is his most recent work, put together by Paquito D'Rivera, and it's a masterpiece." (Phil Riggio 98/99 Catalog)
"The legendary bandleader, composer, pianist and father of Irakere's Chucho comes out of retirement for a tasty jam session in Frankfurt. Maria Teresa Vera's 'Veinte Años' (with Juan Pablo Torres on trombone) and Lecuona's 'Comparsa' (with Carlos Emilio on guitar and Patato on bongos) are standouts. 'Oleaje' the final selection on the album, is a moving farewell from an Old Master in winter. " (Nat Chediak 96/97 Catalog)
