Direct from Cuba: Grupo CANELA performance series in Miami
First female Afro-Cuban & Latin Jazz band to come to the US in 15 years
All female (save for saxophonist Jesús Fuentes) Afro-Cuban Latin Jazz & Salsa Grupo CANELA is set to perform a series of concerts in Miami next month. Somehow this dynamic and versatile band has managed to stay off the radar of presenters in the United States until now. Founded in 1989 by general director Zoe Fuentes Aldama, the members are clasically-trained graduates of various universities in Cuba who also play Latin Jazz, Salsa, Son, Timba, Zouk, Reggae and other Caribbean styles. They have performed extensively throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America and have shared the stage with artists such as Chucho Valdés, Steve Turre, Phil Collins, Herbie Hancock, Los Papines, Miriam Makeba, Los Comodores, Danilo Pérez, David Sánchez, Michael Brecker, Cesaria Evora, Alfredo de la Fe and Orquesta Aragón among many others.

El Bicho by Petter de Chocolate
New Timbatón from Sweden!
Sweden continues to make its mark in the timba world. This time it's a new single by Petter "de Chocolate" Linde, who was one of Calle Real's trumpet players for many years. He has his own project now, and on the first single he has collaborated with rapper Lowcura and Thomas de Paula Eby on a scorching timbatón titled "El Bicho". It is available for purchase at iTunes,Amazon and Spotify. You can listen to it at Soundcloud, and get ready to move your feet because they don't get much faster than this!

CD Reviews: Chuchito Valdés and Timbalive
The newest recordings from members of the Valdés dynasty are doing well this year. We already reviewed Chucho's Border-Free earlier in the year, and it is currently a Latin GRAMMY nominee (Latin Jazz); Chuchito Valdés also has two recordings currently nominated in the 14th Latin GRAMMY Awards (one in Latin Jazz, one in Folklore in a collaboration with Andean folkloric music legend Eddy Navia.) Here are reviews of Grand Piano Live and Carnaval En Piano Charango.
Bill Tilford doesn't doubt for a moment that the following statement will start a few fights, but in his opinion, Timbalive's new Con La Música Cubana NO! is not only Timbalive's best album, but also the best wall to wall Timba dance album (as opposed to Timba plus other things mixed in) to be released by a band based in the United States in many years. Here's his case, before anyone else makes theirs, please actually listen to the album first...
While we're here, congratulations to Miami's Leslie Cartaya for her Best New Artist nomination in the 14th Latin GRAMMY awards. We reviewed her eclectic solo debut CD, No Pares, a few months ago. She would be known previously to fans of the Afro-Cuban Funk band Palo!
