RUMBA NUEVA, CUBANOSON`s second production contains 7 original tracks, and is premised on our continued commitment to honor the great artists who have bestowed upon us the utmost musical education. Here is a preview of the songs recorded on the CD.
A Bailar Con Cubanoson - as the introductory song - provides listeners with a breakdown of the orchestra`s instrumentation, in a swinging montuno. La Fiesta is an invitation to come to a party and dance. The title track Rumba Nueva is an energetic son montuno with a flavor of flamenco rumba style, with emphasis on the orchestra`s percussion. Next on the CD is Cantamos A Puerto Rico. Wanting to honor my fellow Puerto Rican musicians, community and fans, we wrote a song for all our Salseros to honor Puerto Rico. Cubanizate, is a never released son montuno tailor made for CUBANOSON. Tributo A Rodriguez, honors the legendary trumpeter Roberto Rodriguez Sr.
Rodriguez Sr. was featured in numerous Fania records) and his son Roberto Rdoriguez Jr, CUBANOSON`s musical director. Included in this CD are three classic tunes. Voulez-Vous Danser, Quien Sera/Sway (In both Spanish and English) and Preguntame Como Estoy. There are two selections from Silvio Cebrian, known for writing great songs like Ansia. They are La Gallinita, and Loco, Loco, Loco. Both of these are great fun to play and will definitely fill up the dance floor.
