¡Cubanismo! might have started a year before the Buena Vista Social Club phenomenon, but there's no doubt the latter — in addition to constant touring — has helped them break through to real success.

That isn't to deny that it's appealing, successful, and very, very good. Alemañy himself can blow like Dizzy Gillespie, and the band isn't afraid to improvise as well as work through some excellent charts. Their Cuba-New Orleans album, represented here by "Peso en Tampa" and the Crescent City tale of "Marie Laveaux," was inspired and was a necessary development in their sound. However, the two new tracks available here, exploring the connection between Cuba and Jamaican reggae, don't fare anywhere near as well. The angry anthem of "Get Up, Stand Up" comes across as anemic. Though it's cast with great musical sophistication — plenty of key changes, complex harmonies, and solos — its punch was in its simplicity. A basic message of human rights (in both English and Spanish here) gets lost amid the virtuosity.

Releasing their first album just before the seminal world music success of Buena Vista Social Club, they were poised to make a real impact with their melodic Cuban music that kept its roots strong but also reached outward with a rhythmic kick and a sense of adventure. The band was formed by trumpeter Jesús Alemañy, who had been a Cuban child prodigy, gliding through Havana's Conservatorio Amadeo Roldan, then joining Sierra Maestra, the group that helped rejuvenate...
