Sophisticate In Cuba - Stanley Black

It's All Right With Me
Sophisticate In Cuba
Stanley Black And His Music
London Records LL 1781

Here's a smooth Stanley Black set. The title, cover art and music support each other nicely. The vibe is "sophisticated", but pushes beyond mood music into light space age jazz.

From the back cover: The subtly shifting rhythmic accents, the charging moods, the facile switching from jazz to mambo, from baiao to jazz, the piquant exotic flavors combine to form an album of outstanding originality and distinction. Stanley Black has skillfully employed a multitude of novel ideas in this selection. No electronic gimmicks, or subterfuges – just the products of a brilliant musical brain which never ceases to amaze show business with its rich fund of inventive genius.
