Paul Carlon – “La Rumba is a Lovesome Thing”

This is how Billy Strayhorn’s music might sound if he had been born in Cuba.  Features a full horn section, Yoruba sacred songs, fine Latin rhythm section and smart arrangements.  Vocals of well known  lyrics on 2,4,7 & 9 by Christelle Durandy and  more Cuban influenced singing on 1 & 2 by Pedrito Martinez.  ‘Strays’ would dig this.
