A Goodbye Show for the Cubatón band GENTE DE ZONA. for those who couldn’t make it to the recent excelent show in Toronto…
The boys of Gente d’Zona will be doing their biggest hits of past recordings and many off the latest CD. Do NOT miss it… for all ages, $25 at the door, $40 VIP.
Well we will all be ready for another blowout Roberto Linares night at Lula Lounge… where the sound system is the equal of the band .
Roberto Linares w/Billy Bryans as DJ, Oct 23 at Lula Lounge, 1585 Dundas St. W. in Toronto 10 PM.
The best of the best musicians in town… from Cuba, of course! Roberto Linares Brown comes with top Cuban-scene credentials as arranger and pianist for Adalberto Alvarez, el Caballero del Son.
A hero of Cuba’s Nueva Trova movement, Carlos Varela sings of the reality of contemporary Cuban life. Varela’s first U.S. tour earlier this year included a presentation by Jackson Browne in Los Angeles and an invitation to perform at the Lincoln Center for the Arts.
Our Cuban friends consider Carlos the Bob Dylan of Cuba, Cubans of his age group loved him as the spokesman in the same way as Bob Dylan was revered here.
Here he is with Los Van Van, Humo del Tren… I guess he is the Smoke… because Los Van Van is the Train !
Cuba, homeland of Son, with its vast musical inheritance, reveals an amazing variety of genres and styles of the island’s musical history. No other band has been as universal and constantly successful in the brief but rich history of their culture, like the Septeto Nacional Ignacio Pineiro. No more than eight decades after its founding Septeto Nacional Ignacio Pineiro is a national treasure interpreting a timeless repertoire to the delight of audiences and dancers throughout the world.
Nov 6, Markham Theatre 8 PM

The promo video for European tour right after the Toronto show…
Hilario Durán wound up his big band show with Manteca, the classic high-water mark among the achievements of New York-Cuban jazz… recalling the hay day of Chico O’Farrill… as he has done before.
Last night, the point is made clear though… in a comfortable venue, great sight lines, fabulous sound like the Royal.. that the achievement of Hilario is not less than what was achieved in New York… when the impact of Cuba on the jazz scene rocked the city.
True that the masses of people are usually not looking when great things happen… the media are mostly absent other than the usual steadfast support of CJRT… but it was a gigantic night of music, and it proves the maximum that can be achieved with jazz, with swing… and mucho tumbao. A great leader, and a fine team hit the ball out of the park !
