A groundbreaking record for the time – especially considering the barriers between American and Cuba! In a unique effort, Columbia Records managed to record this landmark concert set of performances featuring some of its biggest artists alongside other Cuban players – all captured live at the Karl Marx theater in Havana! This first volume is a very wide-ranging blend of styles – jazz, fusion, Latin, and bits of straight ahead vocals – handled by a diverse array of hip CBS superstar
s at the time, but often with a decidedly Cuban bent. Titles include "Black Market" by Weather Report, "Para Flauta Y Adaido De Mozart" by Irakera, "Cuba Al Fin" by Stephen Stills, "Project S" and "Black Stockings" by CBS Jazz All-Star
s (Dexter Gordon, Jimmy Heath, Stan Getz, & Others), "Dark Prince" by Trio Of Doom, "Juan Pachanga" by Fania All-Star
s, "Living Legend" by Kris Kristofferson, "Que Barla Monda" by Orquesta Aragon, and "Scherezada/
Sun Sun" by Cuban Percussion Ensemble.
