Product Description & Reviews
'Siboney' celebrates the golden age of Latin popular music with 20 songs, mostly from the '30s-'50s, in guitar solo and small group arrangements by Brazilian-born Carlos Barbosa-Lima, one of the world's leading Latin and Jazz acoustic guitarists. Since his U.S. debut in 1967, Barbosa-Lima has enjoyed a global concert career marked by numerous distinguished recordings on the Concord labels, now mostly out-of-print. This is a re-release of the now out-of-pring 2001 Khaeon title 'Mambo No. 5' under a new title! It is an exciting collaboration of Latin Stars and jazz legends -- Carlos Barbosa-Lima, Dafnis Prieto, Oscar Hernandez and Eddie Gomez -- in classic Cuban and Puerto Rican repertoire. This album celebrates the ''Golden Age'' of Latin popular music from the 1930's through 50's, in acoustic guitar solo and small group arrangements by Carlos Barbosa-Lima, one of the world's leading Latin, Jazz and Classical guitarists.

The magic of this first recorded collaboration between Carlos Barbosa-Lima and Eddie Gomez is perhaps best exemplified by their irresistible take on the famous Perez Prado original ''Mambo # 5'' and their high energy, lightning speed take on Zequinha de Abreu's exciting up-tempo Brazilian samba ''Tico Tico'', both with concentrated, spectacularly virtuosic bass solos by Eddie Gomez. Central composer in this repertoire is undoubtedly Ernesto Lecuona (1895 - 1963), viewed by many as Cuba's greatest bandleader, songwriter, and pianist of the first half of the 20th century. ''Siboney'' - Lecuona's most frequently played love song, here receives a sensuous, deeply atmospheric workout, accented by soft percussive effects on the guitar. The other Lecuona hit songs on this recording are ''Siempre En Mi Corazon'', ''La Comparsa'', Maria La O'', ''Danza Negra'' and ''Danza Lucumi'', all in masterful, completely idiomatic new solo guitar arrangements by Carlos Barbosa-Lima. Rafael Hernandez (1896 - 1965), Lecuona's contemporary, was the most successful and prolific songwriter of the time from Puerto Rico. His vast influence on the musical life of Mexico, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and his native Puerto Rico cannot be overestimated. Two of his hit songs are included here: ''Lamento Borincano''- arguably the single most famous song from a Puerto Rican composer - portrays the loneliness and suffering of the young composer away from his homeland, in a time of racial prejudices in the completely Anglo -
