Photographer's Note

El Viejo Compay is already onto his second release while the rest of his bandmates from the now legendary Buena Vista Social Club work on their first solo album. Segundo has cast a wider net this time around. Lucky for us, it’s more of the same beautiful songs sung by that unmistakable voice.

His deep velvety baritone voice continues to soothe on wide range of songs, including but not limited to traditional boleros and son. After he pays tribute to the African god Chango on "Saludo a Chango", you can shake your fanny "Maria en la playa", a rousing merengue. "La enganadora" receives special distinction as the only cha cha cha on the cd. Compay’s version of tango singer Carlos Gardel’s "El dia que me quieras" is stunning. He joins in on harmonica and on harmonies, while Hugo Garzon’s lead vocals work well with Compay’s. On "Lagrimas negras" by Compay’s former bandleader of the golden age, Miguel Matamoros, a classic son finds a home on his new album.
