Album Review
Reviewed 2005-02-17
71-year old trumpet player paying tribute to another master of Cuban music, Arsenio Rodriguez. Mirabal is joined by Orlando Lopez, Papi Oviedo, Ibrahim Ferrer, Ruben Gonzalez and a host of others. There are 3 trumpet players on this, so you can predict that it gets brassy at times. But it also includes great piano, sax, perc, and vocals. I liked it all. It evokes a sort of late night in 1950’s Cuba feeling. Waiter? Another round of drinks, please.

*1. Sexy midtempo dance that’s just delicious.
2. Bright & brassy w/great interplays from all. Midtempo.
*3. Slow, lush, romantic then a jazzy & late night thing.
4. Relaxed cha cha with lots of great touches from all.
5. Voices/piano/horns/percussion. Nice energy.
*6. Playful & lively w/great work from the band.
7. Slow love song w/a nicely retro feel.
8. Sax/vox/perc/horns. Sexy midtempo jazz.
9. Bright & warm. Mid/uptempo, catchy.
*10. Great medley, mid/uptempo strong performances all round.
*11. Lazy then lively. Fun and too short.
