ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Esquina 25 pays tribute to the cultural variety that characterizes the Habana street corner where Calle 25 and G, also known as Avenida de los Presidentes, meet and where Edificio Palace is located. It was around this beautiful building and in this neighborhood called El Vedado that many Cuban writers, musicians and other culture bearers flourished in the 20th century. I always go back to this place in my travels and in my dreams for inspiration.

I am especially grateful to all the brilliant musicians, composers and arrangers that worked together to create this musical kaleidoscope. This great team makes a wide spectrum of Cuban musical styles - son, bolero, rumba, guajira, trova, Afro-Cuban jazz and Lucumí chants - appear at the musical crossroads we call Esquina 25.

Estrella Acosta (voice), Marc Bischoff (piano), Efraim Trujillo (tenor sax, soprano sax, flute), Reno Steba (bass), Armando Vidal (drums, percussion).
Guests: Carlos Irarragorri (tres), Leonardo Amuedo (guitar), Pedro Luis Pardo (double bass), Arjen Gorter (double bass), Claudia Valenzuela (violin), Gerardo Rosales (percussion).
Arrangements by Marc Bischoff, Carlos Irarragorri, Reno Steba, Arjen Gorter.

Sunny, Soulful and pure joy
This CD is wonderful if you want to enjoy the sounds of sunshine and joy. Happy melodic songs sung by a soulfully rich smooth as silk singer. Great tight sound on percussion and band members. Authentic Cuban sounds and feel. Take yourself to the beautiful Caribbean!
