Special Tribute to Buena Vista Social Club with Chembo Corniel

  • His title: “Master of the Tumbadoras”
  • What’s a tumbadora?: the Cuban word for “conga drum”
  • How famed jazz singer and drummer Grady Tate describes Chembo’s technique: “like adding hot spices to a cold salad”
  • His quintet: Grupo Chaworo, whose balance of past and present Latin jazz makes them a perfect match for a Buena Vista Social Club tribute
  • What Jazz Times says of them: “Chembo’s Quintet takes every opportunity for powerful solos, and they do not disappoint”

Special Tribute to Buena Vista Social Club with Pepito Gomez

  • Why Gomez deserves to have a whole sextet named after him: He’s a world-traveling Cuban singer praised by the New York Times for a voice they’ve described as “a beneficent alarm, a positive shout.”
  • What else the Times has said about him: He’s “another order of performer” who makes his “band members look at one another in astonishment and play harder.”
  • Other famous Cuban groups he’s graced: Guasabara, Pupy y los que Son Son
  • Why tit makes sense for him to pay homage to the Club’s golden-age Cuban tunes: member Omara Portuondo is a high-profile fan of Gomez’s pipes
