Alexander y Manolito
Manolito y su Trabuco are showcasing a bunch of songs at their Havana gigs at the moment that will be on a forthcoming album. There are rumours that it will be live, but there are about a half dozen studio demos floating around and when I asked bass player Chino if they had recorded this one yet, he said, everything but the metales, which implies that it is very much a studio album. This one is a beauty - I don't know what it's called, but it was written by Alexander Abreu, and that's all I need to know. The catchy coros and lovely mambos are just icing on the cake. La Revé's Andy Fornet is on drums.
