La Casa de los Marinos



 Genre: Latin Jazz

Get Flash to see this player.

The first part or prelude of this music was composed by
Ignacio Cervantes of Havana (1847-1905) He was one of the first musicians
to combine Spanish music with African rhythms in Cuba.
He studied piano with composer/pianist Louis Moreau Gottschalk
of New Orleans who spent some years living in Cuba.

The first part is entitled "Illusiones Paerdidas" or Lost Illusions.
It is a Habanera which later, the Tango was developed from.

"La Casa de los Marinos" was a bar frequented by Cuban sailors
in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Nightly there were Cuban and Latin American
bands that performed there. It, pictured, is now a restaurant.

This is just sooo great! This music has "come-hither" feeling to it. A fantastic job from you again!

Does the two parts belong together in some way?

Always a treat
love this especially the way it would sound on the guitar. But you do a nice job indeed.. So I guess the second is a recording of a band doing this. Not sure If I understand who is?

But both are very enjoyable.

Great job
Again, educating us in the music of the western hemisphere! This is almost cinematographic in the way it sounds first like this is music from the early days of the 'Casa', and then we get to hear something that developed from that music.

Absolutely fantastic! I have longed to go to Cuba for decades. The history of NO is so intertwined with that of Havana and Cuba. Thank you for keeping history alive robust with your wonderful interpretations of New Orleans and related music. Also, is that a photo of the Palm Court? I met Doc Cheatham there once. s
