CD Reviews

Forbidden in the 80's and still forbidden today...
Juan N. Montenegro | Chicago | 06/02/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Bobby Carcasses is one of those Cuban unknowns, a part of an entire series of artists that are almost unrecognized in the USA. I have no idea how well known Mr Carcasses may be in Europe or Mexico, where I suspect he is much more recognized. Carcasses is the original Cuban scat singer, an improviser in not just words but sounds to augment the total sound of the band. You can also catch Bobby Carcasses in another RMM release of Chucho Valdes titled LIVE, from 1998, also by Ralph Mercado. If it were not for Ralph Mercado's efforts with this and the Forbidden Cuba CD series, Carcasses would be even less known. The FORBIDDEN CUBA series is a collection of some 10 CDS that feature top Cuban musical acts of all kinds of styles. All of them are very good. Get them while you can.

In Cuban music of the last 20 years or so, artists like Carcasses are an integral part of the story.

Please let me know if you have current information about Roberto Carcasses.
Es muy bueno

"Tengo este disco desde 1991 cuando vino Bobby Carcasses a Venezuela. La grabacion es de 1989 y es un excelente muestra de la calidad artistica de este musico. Lo presente en un programa especial que se hizo en television, y estuve en sus presentaciones en un club de jazz de Caracas. Quede sumamemte impresionado con el. En este disco que lleva por titulo "La Esquina del Afrojazz" Bobby y su Grupo Afrojazz presentan un excelente trabajo. Lo tengo en vynil y lo guardo como una joya porque es una muestra de primera del trabajo de este artista cubano."
