1090. Rubén González - Introducing...Rubén González

A pretty amazing cuban artist. When I first started visiting Paddi she moved from the UWS to the UES and the one good thing about that neighborhood was the HMV on Lex and 86. I miss the mega music store. You could, and I did, spend hours in there. True to the old school format they had a jazz room that was sheltered from the J.LO that was playing through out the place. I wondered in there and this was playing - so great was this disc that I had to eventually pick it up through BMG (RIP). Anyway, this guy has such a command over the piano that it's effortless - his band sounds organic and super precise. You'll want a mojito and start dancing immediately.
