In Oh Vida! – Rubalcaba & Fernández payed tribute to legendary Cuban big bandleader Beny Moré, “El Bárbaro del Ritmo.” Moré’s many unforgettable hits include “Que Bueno Baila Usted” and “Como Fué.” At this performance, a zesty flamenco twist was added to his work when Grammy-winning Cuban pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba and Spanish singer Esperanza Fernández  joined forces to present a new take on a set of classic songs.

Update From Criteria Studios

 

L-R: Engineer Carlos Alvarez, vocalist Anna Maria Jopek and pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba

No visit to Miami’s studio scene is complete without checking in with Criteria Studios (formerly Hit Factory), the home of unforgettable recordings by Derek and the Dominos, the Bee Gees and many others. Trevor Fletcher, longtime manager, let us in on the latest sessions at the studio, which is now just one year away from celebrating its 60th anniversary.

“We just finished a project for Universal Poland vocalist Anna Maria Jopek,” Fletcher says. “She collaborated with jazz great [pianist/composer] Gonzalo Rubalcaba, who both produced and played on the project. [That was] recorded live in our big room, Studio A.”
