Sones 1930 Review

by John Storm Roberts

This release brings together two of the greatest trumpet-led Cuban sexteto string bands -- Nacional and Machin -- in not-quite-their-best recordings plus a couple of not-quite-the-tops groups. With very solid notes, it doesn't always add up to ecstasy, but is still rich in glory.
