Perhaps one of the finest Latin jazz units of all time decided to set out to record a straight-ahead salsa album. The result, though confounding to some die-hard Irakere fans, was one very fine salsa record. With some of the most confident performances, brilliantly written horn lines, and swinging rhythms found anywhere in the salsa world, Irakere exposes itself as a more versatile group than many may have thought. For those lovers of the Irakere of yesteryear, bathed in fuzz tone guitars and a disco-solid drum set, Indestructible could be a difficult transition to make.

Chucho Valdes & Combo Jazz Cuba Volume 1 Rumor Records/Warner Jazz 2007 (1964, 1981). Son of the pianist and bandleader Bebo Valdes, Chucho Valdes' mid 1960s band included three of the musicians who would go on to form Irakere some ten years later-Valdes himself on piano, Paquito D'Rivera on saxophones and clarinets, and Carlos Emilio Morales on electric guitar. This 1964 album is ngo, Latin jazz heaven from start to finish-sunny, dancefloor friendly, improvisation centred music featuring a breathtakingly virtuosic frontline.

Irakere (faux-Yoruba for 'forest') is a Cuban band founded by pianist Chucho Valdés (son of Bebo Valdés) in 1973. They won the Grammy Award for Best Latin Recording in 1980 with their album Irakere. Irakere was a seminal musical laboratory, where historic innovations in both Afro-Cuban jazz and Cuban popular dance music were created

New live album also due, on Oct. 20th 2015. The Chucho Valdés: Irakere 40 tour, described as a celebration of Irakere, the Cuban band that, with its bold fusion of Afro-Cuban ritual and popular musics, jazz and rock, marked a before and after in Latin jazz, will begin Oct. 20 in Los Angeles and run through mid-November, with stops in New York, San Francisco and other cities.
