Dan Den

Dan Den is an endlessly talented Cuban band led by Juan Carlos Alfonso, former arranger for Orquesta Revé. They assimilate US R&B influences a bit like NG La Banda (though they stop short of jazz), blending them with traditional elements like the "voz de vieja" vocal style. Alfonso has an almost limitless reserve of melodies. Their first and best records are nearly impossible to find in the U.S. - pick up a copy of the compilation Viejo Lázaro if you see it.

Lineup as of 1996: Juan Carlos Alfonso, piano, songwriter; Félix Toca, bass; Michel, Puly, Jesusito, vocals; Rubén Pérez, congas; Augusto Lage, bongos; Yoyi Vińet, timbales; Pedro Guzmán and Gerardo Barreto, trombones.
