"After more than half a century of mastery on the conga drums,
Francisco Aguabella remains one of the greats, ranking with Mongo
Santamaria, Patato and Candido as an elder statesman of Afro-Cuban
percussion."

"Cuban conga legend Aguabella delivers an irresistible mix
of original compositions and excellent covers that will appeal
to both jazz and Afro-Cuban aficionados... heaven sent.
"

A master percussionist who was born in Matanzas Cuba, Francisco
Aguabella is one of the first eschelon of drummers who came to
America and are responsible for all drummers that came after them,"
says Latin percussionist John Santos in the movie "Sworn
To The Drum.”



"He is one of the strongholds of our music and has always
kept the commitment to our Cuban rhythm. He plays with everybody
but always maintains our rhythm, that’s very important,"
adds Isreal "Cachao" Lopez. On Francisco Aguabella's
fifth Cubop album the master Conguero cruises from the old school
rumba of "Ochimini" to the modern latin jazz of "Nuestra
Era." He enlists the best Latin jazz artists on the West
coast to bring these old and new styles together. Justo Almario,
Sal Cracchiolo and Luis Eric Gonzales are on hand to deliver masterful
improvisations, while the drumming of Jimmy Branly and Conra Coky
Garsia keep the rhythms fresh and exciting. The bass and piano
team of John Belzaguy and Donald Vega keeps everyone on their
toes, pushing the solos to the limit, with Vega displaying his
enormous improvisational talents. But the leader is what makes
all these musicians push themselves, displaying his mastery of
the congas as well as percussion, Aguabella is always the driving
direction behind "Ochimini."
