"...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 Journal75.19414

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."0.4294728

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."0.2996849
