La Epoca De Oro De Miguel Matamoros Review

by John Storm Roberts

His trio made some of the greatest Cuban recordings ever and he composed some of the greatest of sones, but Matamoros was a professional musician who worked in many veins. This classic re-release focuses on small-band recordings bridging the older single-trumpet septeto style and the two- or three-trumpet conjunto. No personnel is listed -- a disgrace given the brilliance of all concerned.
