Today's Opinion: New Killer Jazz CD Release by Yosvany Terry

There are some very exciting and innovative  new Jazz recording projects about to hit the streets including a phenomenal project by Manuel Valera's New Cuban Express, and we'll be saying more about those  in the near future.  But right here, right now, Yosvany Terry is releasing one of them, Today's Opinion,  with special live sets on Tuesday April 10 and Wednesday, April 11 at the Jazz Standard   in NYC. The CD absolutely knocked our socks off - you can read the review here.

IT'S INTERNATIONAL TIMBA MONTH!

¡Feliz Aniversario NG La Banda!

Ladies and Gentlemen this year, as every year, it is time for me to remind you that timba was "officially" born this month in 1989 with the formation of NG La Banda by Maestro José Luis Cortés on April 4. So today we celebrate that momentous event that eventually changed all of our lives. Thank you El Tosco for starting the timba trend!

How will you celebrate International Timba Month? In the US you should catch one of the remaining concerts by La Charanga Habanera . In Europe you can find Los Van Van and here in Scandinavia we have the Viking Line Cuba cruises with Elito Revé y Su Charangón, La Charanga Forever and Yumurí y Sus Hermanos. I plan to celebrate with a few timba cruises assuming I can get free from work which has been unusually busy for me this spring.

So let's all look back with a bit of nostalgia on the band that started it all: NG La Banda with one of my favorite songs, "La Bruja" from back in 1992.
