The Lecuona Cuban Boys: The Lecuona Playboys, Vol.4 (CD)

(1993/Harlequin) 20 tracks

The recordings and the history of the Lecuona Cuban Boys have been thoroughly detailed in earlier Harlequin CDs (07,11, 21) but half of this new CD completes a hitherto undocumented void; the recordings made by the group soon after their arrival in Spain in 1932 and before they recorded in England in 1934, where they used for the first time the name by which they became known throughout the world. Once again, let noted Cuban Boys researcher, Kimmo Luomanmaki set the scene. The story of the Lecuona Cuban Boys is closely linked to the great Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona. In early 1930 most of the members of the future LCB were part of the Orquesta LeBatard-Palau. In late 1931 these musicians left LeBatard-Palau and created a band of their own which performed with great success in Teatro Encanto in Havana; according to the location the band was called Orquesta Encanto. In 1931 Ernestina Lecuona, sister of Ernesto, highly acclaimed the orchestra to her brother who, upon her return from the U.S., engaged the band. During 1931-32 Ernesto and Ernestina Lecuona and the orchestra toured Cuban provinces, performing Lecuona's zarzuelas as well as solo and duo piano recitals. Before this, in early 1931, Lecuona was invited to compose music for a MGM movie "Cuban Love Song" in Hollywood. Interestingly, the music in the film was played by Orquesta Hermanos Palau, which probably included other former musicians of the LeBatard-Palau organization. Up to the 1940's, both Orquesta Hermanos Palau and Orquesta Hermanos LeBatard remained successful bands, mostly playing and recording in Havana. The Palau band included Julio Cuevas as the lead trumpeter in the early 1940's.

In early 1932 Lecuona left for a concert tour in Spain [his third, having toured in 1920 and 1924], together with soprano Maria Fantoli. Before departure Lecuona promised to call his band, now called Orquesta Lecuona, to join him later in Spain in order to enlarge the repertoire of his concerts and to introduce Cuban popular music. A few months later, the band together with Maruja Gonzales, Miguel de Grandy, Carmen Burguete and dancers Grecia y Mario, arrived in Santander. At the very last minute the pianist Luciano Palau decided to stay in Cuba, and Armando Orefiche was engaged instead. Upon arrival in Spain, they engaged Jesus Bertomeu, trombone and violin. The Orquesta Lecuona opened at the Teatro Figaro in Madrid on 12 October 1932, with great success, followed by equally successful tours throughout Spain. A measure of this success was that they were recording for Spanish HMV within three weeks of the opening night. Perhaps Lecuona had already shrewdly booked a four-title session for Monday 31st October. If so, it certainly went well enough to come back the next day for six more. The first session opened with RAPSODIA TROPICAL
