I happen to come across this cd by sheer luck. It is the best cd that I have purchased to date. I mixes latin jazz, big band and ballroom music all together. There are several fun songs with a deep routed soul that I thought had been lost. Even if you do not understand spanish this is a wonderful treasure to have in your collection.

I am a big Cuban traveler. This dvd exemplifies the mood and feel of the country. Very enjoyable if you like Cuban music.

First heard this cd while sitting on the front steps of our house enjoying the warm evening, mid-summer, sipping drinks. Almost led me to believe I was back in Cuba.

Don't Order this CD ! After reading the great reviews I decided to purchase this CD for something new. The recording quality is not great and the song selections are just boring. I am very disappointed in this purchase.

Even as a relative new acquaintance to Cuban music, it was not hard to hear the sheer genius and power of the sounds, the music and the experience. This group of musicians have very touching stories in every sense, how they strived to achieve excellence in utter poverty, how fate brought them together, how most of the world almost missed noticing the contribution of these artists to the music of the 20th Century. Despite their struggles, the music that you will hear on in this collection is in as pristine as mountain snow, in its own sense. A wonderful blend of Salsa and Mambo and Jazz and blues - will appeal equally to all audiences.

This CD is so mesmerizing that you cannot stop listening to it even after you've stopped the CD. The more you listen to it, the more you realize what really music is all about. Comparing this CD with other genre of music is not a smart thing to do. If you don't like it, you don't like it. But that doesn't mean it is bad music.

This album stands up to many listenings, and never seems to get tiresome. The material is a compilation of the traditional and contemporary songs popular during Cuba's musical heyday in the 1920's and 1930's, though it's just as listenable today.

Tropical, sultry, romantic -- a listen can transport you to an island paradise, or provide background for a relaxing evening. If you like this CD, especially the romantic ballads, I'd recommend Ibrahim Ferrer's solo album. Too bad these masters were rediscovered so late in life that may have precious little time left to further enrich us with their talents.
