Grupo Cubano De Música Moderna

Orquesta Cubana De Música Moderna
Import CD (Malanga Music 810), Released 1969; Re-Issued 2008
Editor's Pick:
Kitsch lovers rejoice: Latin music with corny keyboards!!! Hot damn. The orchestra, founded by the Cuban government in 1967, started out as a good idea — bring together the best musicians on the island to play jazz, pop and rock in a Cuban style. Check out the musicians: Chucho Valdes, Arturo Sandoval, Paquito D’Rivera, Cachaito Lopez, Juan Pablo Torres, Enrique Pla, Guillermo Barretto, El Guajiro Mirabal. But. In the history of music, there has never been a group that so seriously dismisses its talent. The music here is soundtrack perfection, with little or no improvisation, and it’s fine for what it is, but it’s hard not to imagine what might have been; lot of heartbroken musicians on that gig. Big heads up for those people who need Latin kitsch for films.
