Overview

Oscar-winning director Fernando Trueba's 2000 documentary film Calle 54 (described by Trueba himself as a "musical") featured performances by a stellar array of Latin jazz artists, all of whom assembled at Sony Music Studios in New York City in March of that year to be captured both visually and sonically. Although the film utilizes the live performances to suggest an abstract script, and seeing the film obviously provides a valuable visual context, it is easy to appreciate the wonderful music on its own, and this disc (released by Blue Note in the U.S.) is a great sampler of top-notch music from the Latin jazz genre. There's Paquito d'Rivera's smoky, romantic "Panamericana"; Eliane Elias' lively piano romp "Samba Triste"; the artful big-band-flavored "Earth Dance" by Jerry Gonzalez and the Fort Apache Band; and even a thoughtful bit of romance from Michel Camilo (the classically influenced "From Within"). Other legends appearing here include Gato Barbieri, Tito Puente, Chucho Valdez, and Chico O'Farrill. Nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Latin Jazz Album in 2002, Calle 54 is the kind of disc you might put on to keep the party going.
