Cuban Rhapsody by Jane Bunnett and Hilario Duran

Wow! This is a really great CD with which to set a mood. You might want to put it on as as background music for an intimate meal, when you are giving or receiving a massage, or when you've had a hard day and are soaking in a steaming tub.

ALMA Records, a label from Toronto, has nicely packaged this ten-track set, which includes a four-part Contradanza, featuring a duet with Jane Bunnett (flute and soprano sax) and Hilario Duran (piano). Compositions by such masters of the craft as Miguel Matamoros, Ernesto Lecuona and Manuel Saumell are included.

Burnett and Duran have been performing together for years. Duran is noted for her work with This collection of vibrant, lovely Cuban classics shine despite (or in spite of) their age and are lovingly and re-interpreted here. A nice addition to any collection!
