Juan De Marcos And The Afro-Cuban Allstars

Absolutely Live En Vivo: DVD & CD Package
DVD (DM Ahora / GG&L GBS 02), Released 2011;
Editor's Pick:
Includes audio cd "Live in Holland" and DVD with "Live in Japan" and "Live in The Hague."
Anticipation for this new live full-length DVD and CD release from Juan De Marcos and his stellar band of Cuban musicians has been running high for some time. I first received an advance promo of this superb performance (recorded at the Zepp Tokyo Arena in the Fall of 2002) over a year ago, and knew then that it was pure gold. This DVD and CD package documents a sparkling, powerhouse of a show featuring some of Cuba's treasures like timbalero Amadito Valdes and Polo Tamayo on flute. However, it is the vocalists here that make this one a must-have: Imagine bringing together Felix Valoy, Luis Frank Arias, wildcat Teresita Garcia Caturla and the legendary Manuel "Puntillita" Licea (who is now greatly missed -- he passed away last year). Piano player David Alfaro is a tremendous talent, and is clearly appreciated by the reaction of the packed audience in Japan. Tresero and band leader Juan De Marcos Gonzalez has produced a premium quality DVD performance that should not be missed. It is a rare visual document of the transcendent power of Afro Cuban music. Very Highly Recommended. (BP, 2011-01-24)
