DVD BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB [DVD] 
DVD Buena Vista Social Club [DVD] [DVD/CD]
"...A valid celebration of musical sophistication and ageless optimism..." Sight and Sound "...Opulent, organic and as intoxicating as a rum binge....Terrific, truly liberating stuff..." -- 4 out of 5 stars Total Film "...Exhilarating....A documentary that mixes music with impressionistic glimpses of urban life in Cuba..." New York Times "...One of the most beautiful and poetic documentaries ever made....Oscar-caliber sound recording of the live performances, coupled with a spectacularly rich sound mix, provide the cherry atop this enriching and rewarding musical feast..." -- 5 out of 5 stars Box Office "...Wistfully sweet....There are lots of fascinating shots of modern-day Havana..." USA Today "...Marvelous....BUENA VISTA creates a completely relaxed, welcoming feeling that couldn't be more inclusive..." Los Angeles Times "...Exhilarating....It's a remarkable story that culminates in an ecstatically received performance in New York's Carnegie Hall....It's also fiercely uplifting. It's been a long time since a film imparted such unshakable good feelings..." Chicago Sun-Times "Watching the movie can induce rapture....It's a labor of love prompted by Mr. Cooder's labor of love, and the most intensely emotional work of the director's career."Wall Street Journal
CD Music That Inspired Buena Vista Social Club
CD Yusa 
Yoga Journal (06/03, p.188) - "...A cross between the lilting acoustic orthodoxy of Cuba's Buena Vista Social Club and the sonic experiments of Brazil's Tropicalia movement..."
DVD Musica Cubana - Live in Amsterdam
CD At Carnegie Hall [Digipak]
Rolling Stone (p.132) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[The] show, captured on this two-disc set, is even more emotionally engaging than the group's eponymous album, which triggered a worldwide Latin-jazz revival."
DVD Rocksteady: The Roots of Reggae
"Think of it as Jamaican soul; beautifully sung, frequently heartbroken but with a strong civil rights agendaUncut
CD Muy Divertido!
Spin (7/00, p.153) - 8 out of 10 - "...Cuban music that upholds tradition at the same instant it lampoons the overwrought sentimentality of Batista-era balladeering....Just when he's digging a relaxed rumba, [Ribot] kicks out the skronk, sending his rhythm section into a clattering freakout..."Entertainment Weekly (5/12/00, pp.78-9) - "...There's nothing phony about the stellar musicianship on display....Imagine a hipster Buena Vista Social Club at a packed SoHo basement party..." - Rating: B+Q (8/00, p.105) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...It works a treat, Ribot's endlessly inventive fingers using the slinky rhythms like a trampoline to bounce playfully all over the shop....worth it for the scorching 'Baile Baile Baile' alone."CMJ (4/24/00, p.24) - "...Shake-shake-shakes the Afro-Cuban pop....Working vicariously through the apple-eyed spirit [Arsenio] Rodriguez, while bringing more of Ribot's seamless, improvisational style to the cha-cha line....Very entertaining."Down Beat (6/00, p.60) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...[The group] fully hit their stride....It's crazed and concise, a chops disc that banks on songs and it driven by a performance that effectively matches sound and attitude. It's also the first great pop-jazz album of the year..."Mojo (Publisher) (5/00, p.98) - "...Wry pseudo mambos: songs sounding like Arsenio Rodriguez originals put through a psychotic blender....it's not for purists, just for people who like to smile."
CD Esto Es Cuba!: Original Cuban Recordings [Slipcase]
CD Cuba le Canta a Serrat, Vol. 2
CD Salsa Social Club
CD Jane Bunnett and the Cuban Piano Masters
JazzTimes (12/96, pp.116-117) - "...this is very pretty music, owing nearly as much to the chamber music tradition as it does to jazz and its Cuban cousin..."Jazziz (8/97, p.77) - "...Bunnett embarks on a fascinating excursion into an elegant style of Cuban music....this entrancing set includes performances with a strong classical feel....Bunnett's sensitivity to Cuban music's sentimental character...and her appreciation of the island nation's penchant for making music...insures this uncommon album's appeal."
