Batacumbele discography Batacumbele includes; Giovanni Hidalgo (congas); Cachete Maldonado (percussion); Angel Maldonado. Maybe it's the wild, manic conversation between the players on-stage, or maybe the cheering of their adoring audience. Perhaps it's the freedom and energy that can only be harnessed in live performance. Whatever the reason, concert recordings seem to be Batacumbele's forte. Their 1987 disc, Afro Caribbean Jazz, features four selections, in which these masters of the style offer their interpretation of some of Latin jazz's favorites. The sly 6/8 "May Day" shifts to a rollickingly quick mambo for an extensive solo section. Son standard "Cachita" gets a horn-rich facelift. Even compositions that did not originate from the Latin tradition, like Horace Silver's "Nutville," get worked over by this band of heavyweights. Though lacking the pristine production and fidelity of subsequent releases, this record acts as a precursor for 1988's In Concert: Live at the University of Puerto Rico, featuring much of the same material. Featuring greater stylistic diversity, sound quality, and superior performances overall, In Concert: Live at the University of Puerto Rico is unquestionably the better of the two. That said, any Batacumbele record, even one made redundant by a later recording, is among the best releases in the genre. The virtuosity of the players is awe-inspiring, and their performance as an ensemble puts most contemporary groups to shame. ~ Evan C. Gutierrez Personnel: Jerry Medina (vocals, trumpet); Jose Luis Ramos (vocals); Hector Veneros (flute, saxophone); Tommy Villarini (trumpet); William Cepeda (trombone); Eric Figueroa (piano); Amuni Nacer, Arturo Ortiz (keyboards); Jimmy Rivera (drums); Giovanni Hidalgo (congas).

Batacumbele CD discography This is a recording by one of the most adventurous, interesting, and -- more simply -- best bands extant. The story is told by the instrumentation, which includes one trumpet, baritone sax, flute, clarinet, batá drums, and cuatro. Which translates into a sound drawing from a very wide range of traditions, mixing charanga and conjunto and the rest in a more varied way than the standard orquesta sound. ~ John Storm Roberts Personnel: Eric Figueroa (piano, Fender Rhodes piano); Giovanni Hidalgo, Cachete Maldonado (congas, timbales). Recording information: Ochoa Recording Studios (01/14/1981-03/11/1981).

Batacumbele music CDs Batacumbele, an amazing outfit of musicians thoroughly steeped in Afro-Caribbean traditions and also fully conversant with the jazz idioms of the day, are a very important group in Puerto Rican history. The Latin jazz world is sometimes unappreciative of Puerto Rico's contributions to the world of Afro-Caribbean music, primarily looking to Cuba for direction. Batacumbele's In Concert: Live at the University of Puerto Rico is to the best argument to the contrary. This supergroup runs the stylistic gamut from folkloric music ("Elegua") to edgy, progressive jazz sounds ("May Day") to straight-up dance music ("Muévete"), and all with equal mastery. The band is truly a force to reckoned with, weighing in at 20 members, many even doing double duty on coro. Featuring some of the day's ...
