Seven studio albums in fifteen years is, in itself, a measure of Jesse Cook's artistic success. And, for this latest recording he wanted to trace rumba flamenco back to its roots in Cuba. His instincts though got the better of him and he wound up spending time in Bogota, Colombia. The resulting body of work is sublime, a continuation of Cook's insatiable appetite for world music in all its forms.
Loyal fans will be thrilled with The Rumba Foundation, as he has entitled the album, while those who have never before experienced Cookʼs creativity will find themselves tapping their feet to these extraordinary Latin rhythms wondering why they have not experienced Cook before. The Rumba Foundation continues the journey Jesse Cook has travelled ever since he was first exposed to rumba flamenco while visiting his father in Arles in the south of France. What other teenager can lay claim to jamming with The Gypsy Kings on his father's roof? On this album Cook is maturing and his trip to Bogota appears to be time well spent.
