New York City Ach! Ache is the Yoruba word for "power," what drives this marriage of traditional Latin rhythms and jazz from Mother-Africa to end-of-the-century New York City. We aren"t talking "brute" or "raw" power here, but power in its strongest sense -- that which connects and heals. --Paul Pines, author of The Tin Angel "The single most important figure in the fusion of Caribbean and African-American was undoubtedly Mario Bauza. The importance of his orchestra and its influence of twentieth century music cannot be underestimated. Tito Puente, Eddie Palmiere, Paul Simon, David Byrne, Tower of Power, Spyro Gyra, Chick Corea, Carlos Santana, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Gloria Estefan . . . all are products of those first experiments by the legendary Machito & his Afro-Cubans under "El Maestro"s" leadership. "This album is a tribute to the cultural and spiritual values of this historical fusion." --Bobby Sanabria Special guests include Tito Puente and Paquito D"Rivera.
