...De La Rumba". In 1972 José Cunill, after having spent some years touring Latin America with several professional orchestras, most notably The Latin Combo, was comissioned by producer Miguel Casas to record an anthology gathering some of the most popular Catalan rumba tunes. He entered Gema Studios with some of the most reputed musicians of the genre to record "Rabbit Rumba". With the basic tracks covering some of the most successful artists of the genre like Peret or Los Amaya y su Combo Gitano laid in Gema 1 studio he finished the tapes at Gema 2 with the help of a Hammond X-77 that he used to produce layers of cool organ sounds. The resulting recordings have been labeled as "the Jackie Mittoo of Catalan Rumba!" or sort of "Jimmy Smith if surrendered by gipsies!" Cunill's rumba benefited of this great musician's high experience in all sort of latin sounds, he brought from Latin American & Caribbean shores a rhythm cadence that was then uncommon in catalan rumba and that makes "Rabbit Rumba" one of the most interesting and sought after albums of the genre.
The good news is that paying high amounts for a vinyl copy of this little gem is over, since thanks to Wah Wah this wonder of rumba sound is available again... Though for a limited time, only 500 copies have been pressed. The first 300 of them feature a bonus single that includes two remixes of the album made by Makala (Euskadi Gaztea) and Miguelito Superstar (FTM).
