After apprenticing with various Caribbean dance orquestas in Northern Europe during the late 1920s, Cuban saxophonist Filiberto Rico formed his own Creole Band in 1930. In 1993, the Harlequin historical reissue label released the first of two compilations devoted to the records waxed by this ensemble during the years 1931-1937. These pleasant performances typify the "exotic" background entertainment desired by the clientele in bistros and cafes, and have a mannered politeness in common with musical entertainments purveyed by popular dance bands throughout Europe, England, and the Americas during the decade preceding the Second World War. This is charmingly nostalgic stuff. Featured vocalists are Mariana Guida, Nina del Par, Chiquita Serrano, Luis Peroso, Fernando Collazo, legendary Cuban bolero tenor Antonio Machin, a group called the Orpheliens, and a mysterious individual identified only as "Doddy."
