Generally regarded as the finest bass player in Cuba, Cachaito Lopez is the heartbeat of the Buena Vista collective, and is the only musician who has played on every track of every album in this ongoing series of best-selling Cuban albums. The torch-bearer for a veritable dynasty of Lopez musicians, Cachaito's family boasts a legacy of 30 bassists who have enriched the sound of Cuban music through the generations, his father Orestes and uncle Israel having made groundbreaking innovations in mambo and descarga. Cachaito takes the spotlight on an album that marks a distinct departure from the preceding Buena Vista projects - heavily atmospheric and all instrumental, it has been likened to the soundtrack for an imaginary film. The groove-based sound incorporates a wide variety of influences stretching from dub reggae to jazz to DJ culture, while remaining rooted in Cuban tradition. Instead of piano or tres, the basic ensemble contains Hammond organ and electric guitar. The result is a new sound that mixes surf guitar, turntables, tropical string sounds, and B3 to a master rhythm section. Personnel highlights include Bigga Morrison, Hugh Masekela, Pee Wee Ellis and DJ Dee Nasty.
