Chanchullo Tracklist.

While perhaps a little bit more rambling and less focused than his American solo debut Introducing Ruben Gonzalez, this album nonetheless presents some lush piano arrangements supported by mellow Cuban percussion. Gonzalez is an extremely fluid player and his sometimes complex improvisations seem to constantly come off without a hitch, which is amazing considering that he is in his eighties. The songs range from sweet and light to more passionate and forceful, but throughout, Gonzalez's unique sense of joy shines through

The music on this album is, as the album title says, more traditional than in some of her other albums, where she has used more modern instrumentation, rhythms and song styles. Transparente for example, with its marvelous "Meu Fado Me. ) The backup is more traditional also -an acoustic trio of two guitars and a bass guitar.
