What You've Been Waiting For/Lo Que Esperabas

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Evan C. Gutierrez
Though timba's popularity in the U.S. and Europe continues to spread quickly, and the music's new devotees are extraordinarily loyal, these markets have yet to see a homegrown band who could really do the music justice. Is it any surprise that the first truly fantastic timba group to surface stateside would come out of Miami, a city known to many Latino musicians as "northern Cuba?" Tiempo Libre is comprised of some of Miami's heaviest Cuban-born, conservatory educated players, and the pedigree shines through easily.

Though timba's popularity in the U.S. and Europe continues to spread quickly, and the music's new devotees are extraordinarily loyal, these markets have yet to see a homegrown band who could really do the music justice. Is it any surprise that the first truly fantastic timba group to surface stateside would come out of Miami, a city known to many Latino musicians as "northern Cuba?" Tiempo Libre is comprised of some of Miami's heaviest Cuban-born, conservatory educated players, and the pedigree shines through easily. Their third album, What You've Been Waiting For/Lo Que Esperabas is well named. The U.S. has been longing for their very own timba group, a group who could tour and record without having efforts dashed by political silliness. Tiempo Libre is what we've been waiting for. The deadly tight rhythm section could compete with the likes of David Calzado's Charanga Habanera. With access to the genre's finest studios, the production value need not compete. The arrangements, courtesy of keyboard player Jorge Gomez, are surging and melodic, with all the sway and grace of the ocean on Cuban shores. With groups like Tiempo Libre at the helm, U.S. timba groups need no longer worry about their claim to authenticity, just keeping up.
