Ry Cooder & Manuel Galbán - Mambo Sinuendo
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Ry Cooder & Manuel Galbán - Mambo SinuendoFans of Cooder’s slinky, cinematic style will rejoice at his latest Cuban collaboration. Unlike Buena Vista Social Club, in which Cooder (rightfully) played second fiddle to gifted, but nearly forgotten, geezers like Rubén González and Compay Segundo, Mambo Sinuendo puts him on equal fretting with Cuban guitar legend Manuel Galbán. Full of menacing mambos and crazy cha-cha-chas like “Caballo viejo” and “Patricia” (which rivals “Chan Chan”), this hypnotic, mostly instrumental album epitomizes Cuban cool.
