When two of the most acclaimed modern explorers of Cuban music combine their prodigious talents on the music they love, musical magic happens. That is demonstrated in truly enchanting fashion on Cuban Rhapsody. Hilario Duran and Jane Bunnett are both virtuoso players, arrangers, composers, and bandleaders in their own right, and they have the Juno Awards and Grammy nominations to prove it. The timeless compositions of classic Cuban jazz and folkloric anthems on this album form a rich body of work that could be termed the Cuban equivalent of The Great American Songbook.
