商品説明

The astounding comeback of Chico O'Farrill at age 79 continued with this terrific collection of mostly Afro-Cuban styled compositions -- some brand-new, some more than half a century old. Originally written for Dizzy Gillespie, the swinging title tune takes on a more complex Afro-Cuban treatment this time, with Michael Mossman capably taking on the trumpet work. The Aztec Suite, written for Art Farmer, comes together smoothly and cohesively, with even more spectacular work by Mossman -- and Crazy City (...

But I Love It) is Gone City (recorded by Machito in 1949) in a more refined, shipshape, somewhat less frantic performance. The oldest piece, Oye Mi Rumba (1945), lures singer Graciela out of retirement for some endearingly authentic atmosphere. Don't overlook newer material like O'Farrill's treatment of Delirio -- a beautiful bolero, very sophisticated in harmony -- and Rhapsody for Two Islands, a flamboyant little piece designed to evoke Cuba and Manhattan with a sudden, broadly-paced solo piano break that explicitly quotes Rhapsody in Blue. Yet the highlight of the CD is undoubtedly the amazingly successful re-recording of O'Farrill's visionary Afro-Cuban Jazz Suite, 50 years after the original Machito version was cut. His crisply executing 21st Century orchestra makes the material seem even more emotionally moving than before, although you do miss the impossibly fluid alto of Charlie Parker (guest soloist Mario Rivera makes an honorable stab at Bird's part) and irreplaceably wild Buddy Rich drums from the Machito record. This is a must-hear for Latin jazz lovers. ~ Richard S. Ginell, Rovi

Chico O'farrill

Chico O'Farrill was right in the thick of the Afro-Cuban and Latin waves that hit jazz in the late '40s and '50s. His sophisticated writing for Latin big bands of the early '50s was often bold, brassy, and tense, yet he could also achieve a delicate, almost classical ambience in such pieces as Angels' Flight and work capably in larger forms (the groundbreaking Afro-Cuban Jazz Suites).O'Farrill too
