Album Review
The Dead Kenny-Gs
Reviewed 2001-08-03 
A survey of Cuban music, many different styles/tempos. Note, style is listed next to track title. Full band led by pianist Frank Emilio, recorded in Habana with a group of Cuban all-stars. Some pieces are a bit light for my tastes, although there is some nice percussion, piano, and violins; playing some solid grooves. The best songs are tracks 3 and 6 which are darker, cool rumbas, and track 4 is nice.
Track 3) Up-tempo rumba, a little darker
Track 4) Conga: piano and percussion
Track 6) Fiddle and flute rumba, vocals. Light at times but very cool.
