O’s Notes: “Tojo” is what they call Jiménez. He’s one of Cuba’s best trombonists and bandleaders from the Cienfuegos region, home of many great musicians. This collection features two sessions with his orchestra recorded in 1960 and 1965 in Havana. Generoso’s work on trombone is very melodic and many fine players complement him. All twenty-three selections are lively and engaging. Lovers of Latin big band will be in heaven.
