Movie Reviews

Chucho Valdes retrospective a hit
Frances Barrineau | Ashburn, Virginia | 05/19/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This excellent documentary about the group, Irekare, shows clearly that Chucho Valdes is the true father of Afro-Cuban Jazz. With insightful interviews of many of the musicians in the ground breaking group, combined with stellar performances filmed over the years since the group formed, this video is a must have for anyone who loves good music. The members of the band speak gratefully about their opportunity to play alongside the best Cuban musicians and their enthusiasm is infectious. I loved this and will watch it again and again."
