Clave Gringa — Ann Reynolds’ Lyrical Love Affair

Seattle pianist Ann Reynolds has been in a passionate relationship with Cuban music since her first visit to that country in 2000. She fell in love with the music and people of that island and has returned there many times to study, compose and perform.

Here at home she leads a band called Clave Gringa as a vehicle for her Cuban-flavored compositions. When Clave Gringa came in for their first (of many, we hope) studio sessions, they performed three of Ann’s songs from their latest release, “Para Cuba Con Amor.” And, yes, you definitely feel the love.
