Product Description:

It is a shame that it took Ry Cooder to shed some light on literally dozens of dynamic talents from Cuba, but thankfully they are receiving their due, albeit posthumously in some cases. Benny Mor‚ died in 1963, but he is often regarded as one of the leading legends of the Latin scene, and no wonder. Whether it is the strong Latin-meets-tango flair of "Dolor Carabali," which contains an impressive horn section, or the ensuing "El Bobo de la Yuca," containing a fabulous, bouncy, happy-go-lucky flavor, Mor‚'s powerful pipes are what makes each track shine. And while some of the recordings suffer from early technology, particularly the distant and rather low sound emanating during "Baila Mi Son," Mor‚ brings each track to life. This is especially true during the mid-tempo "Rumberos de Ayer" or the slower, romantic-leaning "Sin Razon Ni Justica." Perhaps the first true highlight is the bombastic "Marianao," which has a festive, rhumba-oriented melody from start to finish. Mor‚ allowed his band to play an integral role in each song, often leading the way during numbers like the light, hip-shaking "Las Mulatas del Chachacha" and "Elige Tu, Que Canto Yo," which instantly brings to mind the late greats like Ibrahim Ferrer or Tito Puente. Following the rather subpar "Dolor y Perdon," Mor‚ ups the ante with the fantastic and infectious "Maracaibo Oriental" as well as the stellar "Mata Siguaraya," showcasing his wide vocal range. ~ Jason MacNeil
