AFTER THE success of their debut albums on World Circuit Records and acclaimed live performances in Europe, Ruben Gonzalez and The Afro-Cuban All Stars are the hottest acts on the Latin, Jazz and World Music circuit. The Cuban double bill have added an extra night to their first UK dates, with veteran pianist Gonzalez to be accompanied by fellow Grammy award-winning Ibrahim Ferrer, who added warmth to Ry Cooder's guitars on the million- selling album.
