Senor Tambo: The Masterpiece on CD

Musical producer: Gerardo Rosales Production coordination: Astrid Pulles Recorded at Caracas, Venezuela and Amsterdam,The Netherlands between 1994 and 1998 Musicians: Gerardo Rosales: leader, congas, bongo, timbales, bell, maracas, guiro, Afro Venezuelan percussion, coro Astrid 'La Holandesa', Carlos 'El Niche' González, Javier Plaza, Gustavo Garcés: vocal Carlos Emilio Morales: guitar Mark Bischoff, Jorge Martínez: piano Eric Calmes, Leslie López: bass Rafael Rey, Saskia Laroo, Loet van de Lee, Michael Simon, Joe Rivera: trumpets Benjamin Herman: alto sax Praful: tenor sax César Pérez: trombone Gustavo Garcés, Jaime Rodríguez: cuatro Alfredo Naranjo: vibraphone Shanon Dudley: steel pans Charles Peñalver: timbalon drum, coro Marysol Berrios Miranda, Javier Plaza: coro Alexander Livinali, Vladimir Quintero, Gerson Aranda, Alirio Pérez: additional percussion Señor Tambó is the product of the thirty years of my life that I have devoted to music. During four years I have been travelling between Caracas and Amsterdam, always with my tapes under my arm so as to be able to captivate those marvelous spontaneous meetings with my musician-friends. In this production I present several different musical aspects: 'Picadillo' and 'Son, Cuero y Boogaloo' are representative themes of the salsa music which was conceived in New York during the decades of the 50s,60s, and 70s. 'Descarga pa' Caracas' is a deserved tribute to the pioneering musicians of the Venezuelan salsa music. Another side is the folkloric one: the themes 'Barlovento Groove' (culo e puya) and 'La Coñ...' (joropo) are part of the Venezuelan folklore, while 'Pa' los Muñequitos' is my own composition, which maintains the style of 'guaguancó', a traditional Cuban rhythm. Yet another aspect is the fusion. The theme 'Cubanamente', remains rooted in the 'son' and the 'changuï', while mixing with jazz. Thanks to my theory that neither music nor musicians adhere to frontiers, I have in the themes 'Mandingo', 'Persecusión' and 'Afro Blue' mixed the rhythms of my country Venezuela (gaita, parranda, merengue caraqueño, cumaco) with the harmony that jazz offers and the 'sabor' of the Cuban and Antillian music......'Sabroso'. Señor Tambó es el producto de treinta años de mi vida entregados a la música. Durante cuatro años viajé entre Caracas y Amsterdam con mis cintas debajo del brazo, para poder captar estos maravillosos encuentros no programados con mis amigos musicos. En esta producción presento diferentes aspectos musicales: 'Picadillo' y 'Son, Cuero y Boogaloo' son temas representativos de la salsa que se gesto en Nueva York entre las decadas del 50, 60 y 70. 'Descarga pa' Caracas' es un merecido tributo a los músicos pioneros de la salsa en Venezuela. Otra faceta es la folklórica: los temas 'Barlovento Groove' (culo e puya) y 'La Coñ...' (joropo) pertenecen al folklor venezolano, mientras que 'Pa' los Muñequitos' es una composición mia, que mantiene el estilo de guaguancó; ritmo tradicional de Cuba. Otro aspecto es la fusión. El tema 'Cubanamente' mantiene la raíz del son y el changui, mezclandose con el jazz. Gracias a mi teoria de que la música ni los músicos tienen fronteras, en los temas 'Mandingo', 'Persecusión' y 'Afro Blue' he mezclado los ritmos de mi país Venezuela (gaita, parranda, merengue caraqueño, cumaco) con la armonía que brinda el jazz y el sabor de la música de Cuba y las Antillas ... 'Sabroso'.
