About the Album

Vibraphonist Joe Locke follows up his chart-topping string of recordings with one of his most dynamic and vital CDs yet. Leading a unique new quartet with pianist Robert Rodriguez, drummer Johnathan Blake, & bassist Ricardo Rodriguez, Locke channels the influences of New York, Cuba, Philadelphia and Puerto Rico, as well as the many places traveled by these four player/composers, to create a meld that is unquestionably their own.
