GUEST,Banjo Johnny Buena Vista Social Club! (The Film) (27) RE: Buena Vista Social Club! (The Film) 22 Jul 00

Just watched it twice, mainly for the rhythms. Sorry, but I just couldn't get over the feeling it was a bunch of guys doing their Greatest Hits, the nostalgia thing. At any rate, the band & singers were still a lot better than anything Cuba sent us (in the U.S.A.) at the time, such as Xavier Cugat and Desi Arnaz. Did anyone notice, all the tunes are in minor keys? The rhythms (guaguanco, son montuno, etc) are still the best part! == Johnny
