Avis sur l’album

¡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. There's little that's revolutionary about Jesús Alemañy's Cuban blend, as it harks bark heavily to both the dance music of the '40s and '50s, as well as the chops that helped Cuban jazz stand out, simply supercharging the power and speed a little for modern audiences. That isn't to deny that it's appealing, successful, and very, very good.

¡Cubanismo! certainly has good timing. 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...
