    Currently hooked on the Cuban revolutionary jazz stuff



    WOW!!!

    So much so that I bought “Para, Si Usted” volumes one and two. I am trying to figure out how I never heard any of this stuff before.

    Cubans sure do know how to live. With a name like Porkstacker, don't try a real Cuban sandwich if you don't like gettin hooked.

    Aww man how I miss Cuban sandwiches. Every time I go back to my visit family in Florida I buy them by the truck loads. I Love them things.

    Similar story, not Cuban, and not too jazzy, but got hooked on salsa funk stuff for a while. Which is weird for me since I'm not Latin. Gypsy Kings are my fav, they can jam.

    Same here. And I’m as white as white can get (well, except for the whole “Jethro, I’m sleepin’ with my lil sister” thing). Dunno how I’ve made it this many years and never before experienced the awesome funked-infused mastery of Cuban jazz. My parents were granola eating, Birkenstock-wearing, dope-smoking, Grateful dead following hippies, and they introduced my sister and I to a lot of different genres of music while we were growing up in the 1970s and 1980s… how I missed the Cuban stuff is beyond me.

    LP try:

    Konbit: Burning Rhythms of Haiti

    Simular sound with a little more crib / reggae flavor....

    I have a LOT world beat (or whatever the current genre people try to catagorize music into) and like them all.

    For a more African sound try:

    Heartbeat Soukous
    Thunder Before Dawn: The Indestructible Beat of Soweto, Vol. 2
    Zimbabwe Frontline
    True Jit

    Good stuff. I still like the old Cuban Latin music;

    Buena Vista Social Club and then all the solo stuff from the band members.
