Opinião do álbum

Few have done more in their lifetimes to reinvent the conga and its role than Carlos "Patato" Valdes. His ability to use the conga as an instrument with not only rhythmic but also melodic capabilities is truly revolutionary, and has irreversibly changed the way that congas are played. On his 2004 release, El Hombre, Patato hardly goes four bars playing a simple tumbao (the conga's basic rhythm), constantly underpinning the melody with his four or five drums, tuned to the composition's tonic chord. The record features some truly impressive sidemen, including pianist Edsel Gomez, percussionists Steve Berrios and Marlon Simon, and flutist Dave Valentin, to name a few. The tunes throughout are truly Latin jazz, with complex harmonic and melodic ideas that spring from Afro-Cuban traditions and interact with a truly expressive rhythm section.

Valdes was born November 4, 1926 in Havana, where his father played guitar with local group Los Apaches. A child prodigy, he mastered a series of instruments and began playing professionally as a teen, earning the lifelong nickname "Patato" for his diminutive stature. At...
