CD Reviews

Classic latin jazz... live!
Joe Sixpack -- Slipcue.com | ...in Middle America | 07/09/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Fiery live performances from several late '40s transcription discs, and a 1950 concert at the Birdland nightclub. Tenor saxophonist Zoot Sims guests on one of the Birdland tracks, and Machito's usual hot backup musicians are all over this disc. Vocalist Graciela, of course, kicks in with some fine riffs. The disc loses fidelity and seems to warble in spots, but it's still rather exciting to hear these guys at work in a live, unmediated environment. Also includes several slower, big band-influenced ballads (boleros) which show his softer range as a performer."
