GRAND AFRO CUBAN ORCHESTRA OF GENEROSO JIMINEZ: GENEROSO QUE BUENO TOCA USTED
Label: Pimienta Records

 

 


He played with Cuban Legend Beny Moré but his only previous solo album was El Trombon Majadero ("The Naughty Trombone"), released in 1965. Now, after a 30-year sabbatical from the music business, octogenarian Generoso Jiminez has composed and arranged this project, a tribute to himself.

Among the all-star lineup of 28 musicians are Jimenez's daughter Regina on trombone, his brother Enemelio on alto sax, trumpeter Arturo Sandoval, and sax man Paquito D'Rivera. Produced by trombonist Juan Pablo Torres, the tracks are tight and danceable, with enough interesting solos and teasing jazz improvisations to keep it from getting formulaic.

Generoso Jiminez plays on three tracks, including the moody "Baila Señor Contrabajo," proving that he's still got his chops. The CD is a mere 39 minutes long, but Cuban music fans will still want this in their collection.
