Product Description & Reviews
Juan de Marcos, the musical director behind 'Bueno Vista Social Club,' returns with the Afro-Cuban All Stars' new production, 'Absolutely Live II.' It's an eclectic live CD + Blu-ray with excerpts taken from two live concerts: 'Viva Mexico!' (the album), recorded at the Cervantino International Festival in Guanajuato, and 'Live in Maryland' (the video) which contains excerpts from a performance at the prestigious Strathmore Center for the Arts in North Bethesda, Maryland. The audio portion 'Viva Mexico!,' features five distinct Cuban genres in eight tracks, ranging from Afro-Cuban Jazz on tunes like 'Yaimara´s Groove,' where Havana meets New Orleans, to 1950s-style Pilón, and it includes a new version of Ibrahim Ferrer's classic hit' Candela,' which first reached international audiences on the original 'Buena Vista Social Club' album. The Blu-ray portion, 'Live in Maryland,' is a video take on five songs. 'Laura en el Paraiso,' written by Juan de Marcos in honor of his younger daughter, clarinetist Laura Lydia Gonzalez, is a set of Afro-Cuban jazz which opens full band, with the piano playing the melodic lines. A full binary development leads to a complicated and asymmetric Ostinato, which serves as the foundation for several solos! 'Absolutely Live II' truly demonstrates why Juan de Marcos has been dubbed the 'Quincy Jones of Cuban Music' by Down Beat Magazine.
