Machito at the top of his form
Larry Gassan | Los Angeles | 09/29/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Albums like this reminds us that there *was* a world where musicians performed live and delivered the goods. Machito's strengths are shown to excellent advantage here. "Cuban Fantasy" is a tour-de-force. "Almendra" is delightfully sly. Machito's take on Mile's Davis "Pent-Up House" makes you remember why "Latin-Jazz" used to matter and not a synonym for homogenized jive. Graciella's soulful vocals on "Alma Con Alma" and "Ayer Lo Vi Llorar" testify to the inherent heartache beneath the surface. If you needed a reason to live, "Jamaicuba" would be good place to start.In conclusion, not a bad track on the CD."

"Just a few words to express that this album is excelent for the hobby Salsa dancer who likes dancing guajira and mambo. Personally, I like Mahitos' songs too much but specially this album because it is composed of good mambos and guajiras. Specifically commenting upon the songs, the song "Almendra" is the best for me. The song "No Tiene Telarana" is good to the listener as well as guajira dancers. A last commentary, Machito is considered in Puerto Rico as one of the greater masters of Salsa music."
