Amaury Pérez

Aguas Revisitadas 1979/2007 - 2 CD Plus DVD Package
Import CD (Colibri 089), Released 2008;
Editor's Pick:
Amaury Pérez is an important “cancionísta” (singer-songwriter) of the 70s generation of Cuban artists that came to be known as Nueva Trova. Like his equally famous compatriots Silvio Rodríguez and Pablo Milanés, Pérez concentrates on poetic lyrics and sings in an earnest emotional quaver, supported by music somewhere between rock and ballad, with touches of jazz and jazz-fusion, plus some Cuban percussion, or echoes of older styles like trova, filín, and bolero. This package includes a remastered reissue of Amaury’s famous influential 1979 album “Aguas,” with a second disc of reinterpretations by various invited artists like Omara Portuondo, and a DVD with a documentary, photos and more. The original “Aguas” was arranged by Ricardo “Edito” Edy Martínez, who’s own albums are now sought after collectors items because of their strange fusion of rock, disco-funk, synthesizer electronics, and Afro-Cuban sabor. And like Edito’s own albums, the original “Aguas” is drenched in dated synthesizer burbles and washes, and is a bit hard to take unless you are feeling nostalgic. Amaury’s songs, unlike Edito’s, are not in any way funky or particularly related to forms like salsa, timba, or son, though – nothing Afro-Cuban here, at least sonically speaking. The second disc, of contemporary interpretations of Amaury’s songs, rocks a little bit harder and sounds a bit more fresh, but the quavery vocals and synths are still there.
Highly Recommended. (Pablo Yglesias, 2008-07-23)
