iTunes Review

When Bebo Valdés, one of Cuba’s most beloved pianists, meets Diego El Cigala, a revered Spanish flamenco singer, you may never hear bolero the same way again. The fateful union of Valdés and Cigala resulted in a remarkable, Latin GRAMMY®-winning record that channels the melodramatic spirit of a ‘40s film noir. Cigala’s hoarse vocal delivery and Valdés' piano-driven compositions merge beautifully, like on the enigmatic “Inolvidable” or the wistful “Vete de Mí.” Together they rewrote the Latin songbook and made it easy to imagine that Afro-Cuban jazz had always been a part of flamenco.

A Masterpiece of art and romance

The extraordinary combination of Bebo and Cigala produces an impressive masterpiece of "Cante", Gypsi feeling, Cuban inspiration and melody enriched with many other rythms all of them creating the right atmosphere of romance, serenity, relax. Perfect athmosphere for a bohemian afternoon of wine and cheese, or maybe for a long term proposal.

Fantastic piece of eternity...

It becomes hard to describe with precise words this amazing piece of eternity that belong in every music lover's collection. It's emotional depth rivals any work...
Bebo, Cigala and the tiny bit of Caetano made for a magical mixture of talent and heart.

JUST GREAT...

One of best representation of Latin jazz over all. To me this is a great combination of Flamenco and Cuban styles creating sophisticated sound that serves lots of different moods. Great Music.
