El Pañuelo de Pepa was chosen first out of the top 10 jazz albums of 2019 by jazz critic Lizette Corsa.
On this exquisitely intimate session, Cuban pianist Pepe Rivero and Spanish contrabassist Javier Colina breathe new life into classic Cuban compositions from the 19th and 20th centuries, paying special attention to the late pianist/composer Bebo Valdés. The virtuosic duo infuse son, bolero and danzón of yore with crisp clarity, emotional depth, nuanced lyricism and palpable joie de vivre, all of which serves to highlight the music’s timelessness.
