Imaginary Cuba ‎(15xFile, ALAC, Album, RE). Not On Label (Bill Laswell Self-Released). In a year marked by the superb Cuban Music movie, "Buena Vista Social Club" Bill Laswell gave his treatment of the same music to the world. Many have criticized Laswell's transformative projects, which began in the seventies with African Music on the Celluloid label. My record collection now boasts several more Cuban records as a direct, and positive, result of the "Imaginary Cuba" discs. Reply Notify me 1 Helpful.

William Otis Laswell (born February 12, 1955) is an American bass guitarist, record producer, and record label owner. He has been involved in thousands of recordings with many collaborators from all over the world. His music draws from funk, world music, jazz, dub and ambient styles

This album flies in the face of 'who needs drummers?' concepts. my jaw remains unhinged. Laswell had deep fun with this. Imaginary Cuba documents music recently made by musicians still trapped in Fidel Castro's broken-down, farcical revolution, then transformed by Laswell in his studios. Well known for his work with the group Material and various other jazz, fusion projects, Laswell's now brought a wealth of inventive, traditional rhythms over from the island nation and infused them with his inimitable world-music vision and smooth, funky, groove-laden bass playing.

Artists Bill Laswell Imaginary Cuba. This album has an average beat per minute of 101 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 94/108 BPM). See its BPM profile at the bottom of the page. Tracklist Imaginary Cuba.

Imaginary Cuba finds him taking an approach somewhat similar to the one he employed on his Off World One project - building on a foundation of field recordings, he constructs complex and often dub-inflected sound collages that sound like no one but Laswell while still maintaining respect for the music's origins.
