“Mr. Vitier, the pianist and composser, rework Cuban forms like the Danzón in the same way that the argentine composser Astor Piazzolla reworked the Tango.  Mr. Vitier, who is best known for his film scores (like “Strawberry and Chocolate”), along with an Afro Cuban Mass used Jazz ideas an Afro Cuban montunos.   The audience broke up again, with continuous standing ovations”.
