Cuban Recordings and the Latin GRAMMY® Awards

Grabaciones cubanas y los premios Latin GRAMMY®

ENGLISH:  Every year, more of the best recordings from Cuba are being submitted to LARAS for consideration in the Latin GRAMMY© Awards.  Cuba also has its own superb awards program, Cubadisco, and many recordings are now submitted to both programs.

Although these recordings are of excellent quality and well-known in many countries, in some cases, may be the resource in the United States that contains a review of them.   Bill Tilford monitors this situation closely, and based on what he has learned, we want to bring to your attention the following reviews and other documentation about several of the recordings from Cuba that are likely to appear in the Latin GRAMMY® process.  This is almost certainly a partial list, but we hope that this will serve as a valuable resource for learning more about these recordings.  Read more here...

ESPAÑOL: Cada año, más de las mejores grabaciones de Cuba  se entregan a LARAS para consideración en los premios Latin GRAMMY®. Cuba también tiene su propio programa de premios magníficos, Cubadisco, y muchas grabaciones se entregan ahora a ambos programas.  

Aunque estas grabaciones son de excelente calidad y muy conocidas en muchos países, en algunos casos, puede ser el único recurso en los Estados Unidos que contiene una reseña de ellas. Bill Tilford monitoriza de cerca esta situación, y en base a lo que él ha aprendido, queremos traer a su atención  los siguientes reseñas y otra documentación  sobre varias de las grabaciones de Cuba que puedan aparecer en el proceso del Latin GRAMMY®. Esta es casi seguramente una lista parcial, pero esperamos que esto sirva como un recurso valioso para aprender más acerca de estas grabaciones. Lea más aquí...

Pedrito Martínez Group - San Jose Jazz Festival - photo by Peter Maiden

The 25th San Jose Jazz Festival was absolutely tremendous, capped by the Pedrito Martínez Group playing three stunning shows - one with special guest Calixto Oviedo and another with Jerry González sitting in on trumpet. Among dozens of other amazing acts was the California debut of the classic plena band Viento de Agua, led by Tito Matos, who will be conducting a plena clinic with John Santos at the Mission Cultural Center in San Francisco.
