The first 45 minutes present a small sampling of Cuban music from the 12-volume compilation “KubaMusika”. The following 45 minutes explore the tradition of Latin American lullabies. The last 30 minutes, dedicated to the Spanish language, include a few Mexican proverbs and the reading of “Los once de la tribu” by the Mexican author Juan Villoro.
Welcome aboard the Rocket Ship this week, skassengers! Come to the card table. Oooh, look what’s in Hour 1’s hand…
2 pair (Delroy Wilson Slim Smith, right next to Cecil Lloyd Roland Alphonso). Rounding out the hand is Donatella Rettore, ace high, reaching pitches you thought only dogs could hear! Now, what’s Sherwood holding in Hour 2? Woo-hoo, 3-of-a-kind, in the suit of vibes! Arthur Lyman, Lionel Hampton and Gary McFarland, right next to each other. Paul Horn Quintet would have counted for four, if his mallet man Emil Richards had been leading the session instead of flutist Paul. Now back to cheaters Capt. ‘n’ Cozy, seated in the hour 3 chair as well as hour 1. And what do they hold here? 4, no, 5, ah, wouldja believe SIX of a kind?? All shorties clocking in under 2:10 each, including shortest-ever Lollipopper Yvonne Prenosilova
