商品説明

Maybe it's the wild, manic conversation between the players on-stage, or maybe the cheering of their adoring audience. Perhaps it's the freedom and energy that can only be harnessed in live performance. Whatever the reason, concert recordings seem to be Batacumbele's forte. Their 1987 disc, Afro Caribbean Jazz, features four selections, in which these masters of the style offer their interpretation of some of Latin jazz's favorites. The sly 6/8 May Day shifts to a rollickingly quick mambo for an extensive solo section. Son standard Cachita gets a horn-rich facelift. Even compositions that did not originate from the Latin tradition, like Horace Silver's Nutville, get worked over by this band of heavyweights. Though lacking the pristine production and fidelity of subsequent releases, this record acts as a precursor for 1988's In Concert: Live at the University of Puerto Rico, featuring much of the same material. Featuring greater stylistic diversity, sound quality, and superior performances overall, In Concert: Live at the University of Puerto Rico is unquestionably the better of the two. That said, any Batacumbele record, even one made redundant by a later recording, is among the best releases in the genre. The virtuosity of the players is awe-inspiring, and their performance as an ensemble puts most contemporary groups to shame. ~ Evan C. Gutierrez, All Music Guide

Batacumbele

A hot Afro-Cuban outfit that rivals any today. Their name comes from the bat drum from Africa plus the cumbia rhythms of montuno and mambo, which evolved from tribal dance. ~ Michael G. Nastos, Rovi
