CD of the Day - "Candido & Graciela: Inolvidable"

CD of the Day
Candido & Graciela: "Inolvidable" (Chesky) 2004

Havana-born Latin music legends Candido and Graciela are two of the survivors of the Cubop movement of the late 1940s, which fused Cuban rhythms with bi-band jazz. Inolvidable captures the essence and liveliness of a number of traditional Cuban songs from a timeless era. Candido and Graciela are joined by an all-star Latin band that features Xiomara Laugart as a special guest singer, Sonny Bravo (piano), Frederico Britos Ruiz (violin), Andy Gonzalez (bass), Eddie Perales (flute), Nelson Gonzalez (tres), Manny Oquendo (percussion), and Joseph Gonzalez and Jorge Maldonado (backing vocals).
