Buena Vista Social Club

Here’s something a bit different, not from the Amsterdam or Carnegie Hall concerts, but an intimate TV studio recording of ‘Chan Chan,’ featuring Ry Cooder and most of the full Cuban team. The addition of Rubén González’s piano (not present on either the studio recording or the Carnegie Hall live disc) gives the song a subtly different texture and Ibrahim Ferrer, rather than Eliades Ochoa, shares the vocals with Compay Segundo.
