Product Notes

This slamming compilation features Afro-Cuban jazz acts from the Cubop record label. A great introduction to this smart but sometimes overlooked label, Viva CuBop 2 showcases mostly previously released tunes that range from material with a strong percussion focus, such as Bobby Matos and Babatunde Lea, to energetic horn-driven tunes, like those of Arturo Sandoval, Jack Constanzo, and others. Of particular note is the Constanzo cut: the fine soloists keep the energy sky-high throughout, but vocalist Marilu is the gem that makes the tune shine and shimmer. While horns, piano, congas, timbales, and bongos are the usual percussive tools of the trade, the Dave Pike and Bobby Matos tracks both feature the vibraphone, which sounds right at home amid the typically raucous accompaniment. Viva CuBop 2 works for both the curious and the knowledgeable. It's a sweaty set that should get all but the dead out of their chairs and on to the dance floor. --Tad Hendrickson
