Ska Cubano's music brings instant grins to everyone, no doubt about it. The brains behind the operation are Peter Scott (production) and Natty Bo (instrumental niceness). That's not to ignore the 24-carat players' roster on this set, such as Cuban vocalist Beny Billy, my good friend Rey Crespo on bass, and an array of Cuban and British keyboard, brass and percussion talent: but the grin factor comes from the group's overall concept: Caribbean, Cuban and novelty tunes done over in a detail-perfect ska-style this may be, but the underlying feel is that unmistakably, uniquely British, cheeky-chappie cockney vibe, in the grand tradition of Joe Brown, Lonnie Donegan, Trevor Peacock, Chas & Dave, Madness, and general two-tone tomfoolery. In short, I love it!
