Semblances of "The Buena Vista Social Club" idiom still remain on Ry Cooder's new 12 track CD entitled "MAMBO SINUENDO," Cooder is allied with "Buena Vista Social Club" guitarist Manuel Galban. Accompanying Cooder and Galban on this unique recording are drummers Jim Keltner and Joachim Cooder, Conguero Miguel "Anga" Diaz, and Cachaito Lopez, on bass (also from "The Buena Vista Social Club). "MAMBO SINUENDO" sounds far more tentative and raw then Cooder's previous Cuban forays. Cooder explains that "there was a sound that had not been explored – a Cuban electric guitar band that might reinterpret the atmosphere of the 50's with beauty, agility and power. We figured on two guitars, two drum sets, congas, and bass – a version of "Sexteto" with enough horsepower to swing like a big band and still have the subtlety to reveal the nuance and mystery of classic songs. We hoped to make a landing back in the cool world of Mambo-jazz, somewhere between Perez Prado and Henry Mancini." "MAMBO SINUENDO" opens up a fantasy world filled with new sounds and sentiments. Sunny bright days and dark rainy nights await you on this wonderful new creation.
