Comments / Reviews:

Chano Pozo: El Tambor De Cuba charts the career of the elusive Pozo and, along the way, illustrates the connection between American jazz, African rhythms and Cuban music in fascinating detail and with undeniable authority.

Tom Piazza, The New York Times

****************************************

This very well-conceived release serves as a perfect tribute to the volatile and intense conguero-composer-singer and is essential to collectors of Afro-Cuban and Latin jazz.

Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene

****************************************

"Voilà le genre d'histoires qui ont fait la légende de l'élégant conguero cubain Chano Pozo, el tambor de Cuba, célébre comme il se doit dans ce coffret confectionné avec amour par Jordi Pujol des disques Tumbao."

-- Pierre-Jean Crittin, Vibrations/Latino (France/Suisse)

****************************************

"¿Cómo han podido recoger tantas cosas, producidas en el corto tiempo en que el gran rumbero estuvo golpeando los cueros...? Trabajo arduo, talento preciso,y dedicación casi religiosa,hubo que poner en juego para ganar esa partida [....] nadie podría enhebrar un enfoque que no sea positivo, hacia la acuciosa manera de encontrar y narrar los acontecimientos que dieron el triunfo, y al traste, con la vida de Chano Pozo. [....] Podría, interminablemente, seguir señalando detalles interesantes, pero resumo diciendo que, en cada interpretación hay una sorpresa, y que poseyendo esta joya histórico-musical, puede decirse acertadamente:3Timbero, la timba es mía""

-- Rosendo Rosell, Diario de Las Américas (Miami)

****************************************

"The life and influence of this legendary figure has been meticulously and lovingly documented in a three-CD collection [...] the Pozo package includes a 143-page book [...]generously illustrated with historic photos and reproductions of vintage record labels. In an industry that often skimps on production quality, it's a delight to find a set that does justice to the artistic stature of its subject."
