COLIBRÍ AND EGREM IN CUBADISCO 2014
COLIBRÍ Y EGREM EN CUBADISCO 2014
ALSO: AFRO CUBAN SOUL REBELS IN NEW YORK
ENGLISH: During his trip to Cuba in May, Bill Tilford received a wonderful collection of documents from EGREM and Colibrí related to their recordings that are part of Cubadisco 2014. These documents are in Spanish, but Bill is also gradually publishing bilingual reviews of many of these recordings. These documents and links to reviews that have already been published can be found in the From The Studios section. Colibrí's documents are available here. EGREM's documents are available here.
These documents are worth reading, and the recordings that Bill has heard thus far are also all worth having.
ESPAÑOL: Durante su viaje a Cuba en mayo, Bill Tilford recibió una maravillosa colección de documentos de la EGREM y de Colibrí relacionados con sus grabaciones que forman parte de Cubadisco 2014. Los documentos están en español, pero Bill también está publicando paulatinamente reseñas bilingües de muchas de estas grabaciones. Los documentos y enlaces a las reseñas publicadas se puede encontrar en la sección From The Studios Los documentos de Colibrí están disponibles aquí. Los documentos de EGREM están disponibles aquí
Vale la pena leer estos documentos, y de las grabaciones que Bill ha escuchado hasta hora, vale la pena tener todas también.
ALSO: Dayramir González Vicet's new project with Edrey aka Ogguere, the Afro Cuban Soul Rebels, recently premiered in New York. You can read Ian Stewart's review (in English) here.

Conjunto Chappottin y Sus Estrellas Is On the Move
First US Tour for Legendary Band
Conjunto Chappottin y Sus Estrellas is in the middle of a first-time-ever US tour. This legendary band dates to the Arsenio Rodriguez era and continues to defend that music with a powerful conjunto that includes 4 trumpets. Chicagoans can (and should, we might add) catch them tonight, July 14 at Martyrs' (the photos are from yesterday's excellent performance at the Square Roots Festival). The rest of the tour dates can be found here:
We'll have a lot more pictures and a full review later this week.
Afro Cuban Soul Rebels World Premiere
Concert in NYC at SOBs July 10
Several months ago, we did a few pieces about Dayramir González, the leader of the phenomenal Afro Cuban Jazz project Habana enTRANCE, which won a Cubadisco for their album of the same name.. Dayramir went on to study at Berklee College of Music and won their Wayne Shorter award for most outstanding Jazz composer in 2013. (You can see more of his resume as of 2013 here.) He is now resuming his performing career in earnest and has teamed up with Edrey aka Ogguere, also a Cubadisco winner, Jazz poet and a key member of Gilles Peterson's Havana Cultura, to lead The Afro Cuban Soul Rebels, a 9-piece ensemble that is about to release its first single (also called Afro Cuban Soul Rebels)
This writer has had his ears peeled for new things by Dayramir since first hearing Habana enTRANCE (which came out before he started writing reviews here.) Havana Cultura, Edrey aka Ogguere's associates, is also very impressive. The style of this new project will be different, but we think you'll want to check this out:
