Fiona's Comments

Warm big band tune from an excellent ensemble. Nothing standard about this composition, which sounds fresh as any jazz being recorded today. I do like what Paquito D'Rivera says about this ensemble, that the mix they've achieved is so balanced you never feel the music is too Latin to be Jazz, or too Jazzy to be Latin.

About the Album

The 2008 Latin Grammy Award winners for "Latin Jazz Album of the Year," return with their all-star fueled big band for another powerful recording of dynamic new compositions. With special guests including Dave Samuels and Roberto Quintero, they perform works by Luis Perdomo, Hector Martignon, Dave Samuels, Mike Pope and Vince Norman.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
