Cubanismo! is a rollicking, entertaining collection of Cuban-inspired jazz recorded with pianist Alfredo Rodriguez and a host of Havana musicians. Jesús Alemañy sounds vigorous throughout the album, spurring his team of supporting musicians to great performances. It's an album that emphasizes the Latin rhythms of Latin jazz, not the jazz and it is all the stronger for it. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine Feat.Alfredo Rodriguez Eff.9/2/2 From 16.98 To 11.98 Recorded at Egrem Studios, Havana, Cuba in May 1995.

Q (3/96, p.91) - 3 Stars - Good - "...this is a new band playing the music as well as it has ever been played..."
Down Beat (3/96, p.57) - 4.5 Stars - Very Good/Excellent - "...instrumental Cuban dance music....Alemany...has a fat, greasy tone and a stratospheric high register, while Alfredo Rodriguez has a crunching, percussive command of the piano, both showing little jazz influence. The band...smokes like a fine cigar..."
Option (5-6/96, p.91) - "...very close to a dream team of Cuban musicians....After'll understand why this island attracted so many foreigners before Castro came into power..."
New York Times (Publisher) (4/14/96, Sec.2, p.30) - "...[CUBANISMO] simmers with the excitement of a party....A recording studio is on occasion blessed by being a witness to a session that equals in intensity music performed in a club. This recording documents one of those times."
