¡Cubanismo! is a rollicking, entertaining collection of Cuban-inspired jazz recorded with pianist Alfredo Rodriguez and a host of Havana musicians. Jesús Alemañy sounds vigorous throughout the album, spurring his team of supporting musicians to great performances. It's an album that emphasizes the Latin rhythms of Latin jazz, not the jazz and it is all the stronger for it.
