Here comes the feel-good al­bum to lift you out of win­ter. The story of th­ese vet­eran mu­si­cians, coaxed out of re­tire­ment to make the best-sell­ing world mu­sic al­bum of all time is a heart-warmer in it­self, and now we can re­live it all over again cour­tesy of the World Cir­cuit ar­chives. Lost and Found, re­leased as the sur­viv­ing mem­bers em­bark on their “Adios” tour, cov­ers the whole range of the group’s reper­toire from bolero and strut­ting salsa to im­pro­visatory descar­gas and poignant af­ter-hours gems. Some tracks are out-takes from the orig­i­nal ses­sions and as­so­ci­ated projects, some are live record­ings – no­tably of Ibrahim Fer­rer and his banda gi­gante – but all are in­fused with the Buena Vista magic. Bring on the Cuban sun­shine!
