"This song became a big hit in Cuba and is a well known tune all over the world. This version was arranged for 4-tet by myself, giving it a different twist. Funny fact: originally, Hernández was from Puerto Rico - even Ramon thought he was a Cuban, haha!"
"Bilongo or La Negra Tomassa by Cuban Guillermo Rodriguez Fiffe was composed around the 1930s and is today still being played by virtually every beginning salsaband in the world. This version was arranged by Ilja Reijngoud who made some significant harmonic changes to the chord structure."
"Bésame Mucho is such a well known piece, it hardly needs any introduction. Composed by the female Consuelo Velázquez from Mexico and arranged by Ilja Reijngoud, we play this one in 7/8 and it has a drumfeature at the end giving the composition a different dramatic vibe from the somewhat sweeter Bésame Mucho versions often heard."
"A mi que by Jesús Guerra, was performed by many groups, like among the legendary Tipica ’73 Orchestra from New York treating it with their strong NY Charanga sound. What we do is a totally different approach of the tune with the acoustic bass playing the melody over a quiet jazzy and open Yambu feel."
"Chan Chan became a million seller hit with The Buena Vista Social Club. Bassist Adinda Meertins approached the tune with an exiting uptempo 12/8 feel giving the piece a unusual and different character."
"Three Basslines is based on Frank Emilio Flynn’s world famous baseline from his composition Gandinga, Mondongo y Sandunga. I arranged the piece and added two other basslines resulting in a dirty, raw and funky Latin descarga."
