Bridge To Havana
Pyramid

Published July 28, 2005

The concept behind Bridge To Havana was both noble and simple: Fill a plane with 140 musicians primarily from the U.S. and Britain, drop them in Cuba in 1999, and put them together with Cuban artists to create and perform the results. So here are the likes of Gladys Knight and the ubiquitous Mick Fleetwood, Peter Frampton and the even more ubiquitous Bonnie Raitt, pooling talents with Edesio Alejandro, Carlos Varela, Horatio “El Negro” Hernandez and Rey Guerra. Sounds monumental on paper, but only occasionally (Joan Osborne, for one) does the music come alive. All too often the Cuban elements are buried amidst the overly sappy pop, making for a concert/documentary that’s disappointing more often than inspirational.
