CD Review:

Buena Vista Social Club

Reviewer:Steve Taylor

Produced by Ry Cooder, "Buena Vista Social Club" represents a group of long-forgotten but still alive-and-kicking musicians who were found and banded together to make a musical recording that would go on to win a Grammy and explode internationally. Well, if you ain¡¦t got it yet, make this your next pick. Though not recorded in a top-of-the-line studio, the quality doesn¡¦t get better than this in terms of musicianship. Even if you don't speak Spanish, you'll certainly understand Ruben Gonzalez¡¦s sensual piano, Omara Portuondo¡¦s soulful crooning and Ibrahim Ferrer¡¦s burly vocals.
