Ten years before Chico & Rita, Trueba made this milestone documentary tribute to Cuban jazz. Warm-hearted, lively, and gracefully lensed, it features a slew of performances from musical giants including Bebo Valdes (and son Chucho), Tito Puente, and Gato Barbieri, providing glimpses into history both personal and political, mournful and joyous. “So infectious it should leave you elated” (The New York Times).
