Trio Matamoros

One of the most popular and influential Cuban groups of the '20s and '30s, Trio Matamoros was formed in 1925 by Miguel Matamoros, along with percussionist Siro Rodriguez and guitar player Rafael Cueto. The band performed from 1925 until it disbanded in 1969, hitting several creative peaks along the way. From the beginning, the trio made an impact with its own unique sound, the bolero-son. Their music was rich with harmonies, but also featured the strong rhythm of the son, which was blended with the romanticism of the bolero. The band also expanded and contracted several times during its tenure, at times performing as a trio, septet, orchestra, and conjunto.

In the '40s, Matamoros' voice began to falter and he recruited a number of singers to fill in for him. From 1945-1947, Beny Moré sang with the band, at first just filling in Matamoros' part in the trio's harmonies, then taking on a much more focal role. Over the years, the band incorporated elements of swing, mambo, and rhumba into their recordings, and benefited from the mambo craze in the United States in the '50s, eventually recording in a large-band format that better suited the dance fever that was sweeping America. ~ Stacia Proefrock

BLACK PEARLS, literally, is the name of this masterpiece and apart from their own rendition, JOSE FELICIANO does a very beautiful, simple take, and then the great REAUTILIA RODRIGUEZ, from Cuba as well in the 50's-70's (?) sings it with a certain sorrow, BUT adds a second stanza (or 3rd?) that turns against the beloved who has abandoned us and becomes almost vulgar and violent. Sad-----they lacked the certainty of GREATNESS, keeping things as simple as possible.... . .

If I may finish!
Listen to Lagrimas Negras, sung by every BOLERO, balladeer, Pop Star (Luis Miguel?), etc. who has performed it. Rarely do they stay sober and do not add, as I believe the original song DID NOT, the vengeance and resentment of the denouement.. . . . . M a t a m o r o s , in their version, is only filled with the sorrow of having been forgotten by his love. The BEST one to my knowledge, it does not turn against the person when sharing his pain. His heart is too great....... . . .

May Miguel Matamoros be in a most unique place UP THERE along with the others in the band that contributed to his enormous output, but perhaps not to his immense originality in music that, at least for me, after 45 years has proven immortal.... . M y grandparents listened to them in the 70's, but I could barely sit by with this noise (in San Juan, PR)--------- y e t , no more than 20 years later there I was..... Of course, Lagrimas Negras is Matamoros' masterpiece! . . . . . . . B l a c k Pearls, sadly..
