Album Review
Reviewed 2008-11-09 
CUBAN JAZZ – Excellent piano/bass duets, recorded live in 2005. Bebo was 86 years old at the time, but his playing is dextrous, lively and completely authoritative. He gets solid support from Colina, and together they keep things interesting and rhythmically varied. The set list includes Valdés originals and many Cuban classics. Gotta love it!

Try any track; they’re all delicious.

1. 6:29 – midtempo upbeat bounce
2. 3:34 – warm, nostalgic stroll
3. 5:50 – happy little cha-cha-cha
4. 6:28 – soft, sophisticated ballad
5. 2:29 – playful take on a classic
6. 4:11 – sexy, slinky classic tune
7. 2:41 – romantic classic, elegant
8. 3:54 – swaying and debonair
9. 5:48 – sly tune, with sing-along!
10. 4:30 – deliciously sultry ballad
11. 4:44 – cute little 12-bar blues
12. 4:15 – standard, in elastic time
13. 5:26 – warm “Peanut Vendor”
14. 4:48 – ballad: strong yet gentle
