Alfredo Rodríguez – Tocororo (Mack Avenue)

The opener “Chan Chan” (1) shifts widely between extreme staccato and smoother playing, an ensemble giving a tour of the neighborhood. The rest of the album pursues that kind of adventure while maintaining a grip on . Slides into simple pleasantness now and then but a little pleasantness won’t kill you. Play: 1, 3, 5, 8.
