The tracks are included on the new album Americuba, which the Berman brothers recorded with a band of Buena Vista veterans and other Cuban musicians who they ve collectively dubbed the Havana Maestros. Master laud player Barbarito Torres, pianists Emilio Vega and Harold Lopez Nussa, and timbalero Amadito Valdes are included among the esteemed personnel. The album features 42 musicians in all. In addition to the King and Janelle Monáe hits, Americuba Cubanizes Chic s Good Times, Missy Elliot s Get Your Freak Out, and Otis Redding s (Sittin On) The Dock of the Bay, among other songs. Thanks to the caliber and sonoric classiness of the musicians, and the quality of the production, Americuba transcends the potential cheesiness of its concept, although its appeal may be inseparable from its novelty.
