CD Reviews

A virtuoso!
Lawrence Alexander | San Diego, CA | 07/11/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Recorded when Chucho was in his early 50's, this is a shining example of his talent. My favorite piece is Osun, an incredible display of thunderous scales and gentle melodies. I may be in the minority, but I like this effort better than the award-winning 'Solo Piano' CD for two reason. First, the song selection on 'Lucimi' is excellent. Second, it's simply a matter of personal taste, but the piano on this CD sounds fuller and less like the "honky-tonk" piano sound on Chucho's other solo efforts. If you're a Chucho fan, you won't be disappointed!"
