Album Review
Reviewed 2007-03-06
Sexy, sophisticated Latin jazz. Cespedes (a Cuban-born, Mexican-based singer) & Rubalcaba (Grammy-winning Cuban pianist) are joined by a solid quintet for a tribute to “Bola de Nieve” (he was sort of a Cuban Nat “King” Cole). It’s filin music – slow, emotional, romantic, and expertly delivered by this warm, slightly husky voice and an experience band with some tasty solos. Wonderful!

1. Slow, romantic, lush. Slightly sad, so lovely.
*2. A dishy late-night slow dance. Sensual, serious, delicious.
3. A relaxed and lazy love song w/great violin solo.
4. More midtempo w/light vocals & nice work from all.
*5. Starts dramatic, a romantic, mid/downtempo sleepy jazz dance.
6. Slow, delicate vocals. Gentle piano. Beautiful.
*7. Lightly swaying downtempo love song. Good guitar work.
8. Slow, old-fashioned love song with a classic filin sound.
9. Pour some wine, grab your snuggle bunny, and slow dance. Sigh…
*10. Slow intro, a warm & sweet sound. Fun vocalese.
11. Nice blend of piano & vocals. Yum.
12. A more contemporary sound. Slow/mid jazz.
13. Nicely relaxed and warm “duet” w/Bola de Nieve.
