González, Rubén – Introducing...Vendor: World Circuit
NEW VINYL LP ON WORLD CIRCUIT 2017
2 X 180 GRAM VINYL.
The most jazz-oriented of the elderly musicians in the Buena Vista Social Club, pianist Ruben Gonzalez was 77 at the time of this album, his debut as a leader. Although he did not even own his own piano at the time, he plays brilliantly, performing a variety of traditional melodies plus two originals, often quoting other songs and really stretching himself. His chord voicings are distinctive and very inviting, his control of the piano is quite impressive, and the music sings its heart out.
