Album Review
Reviewed 2012-10-03
Sexy classic tunes from the Cuban guitarist/bandleader who passed away last year. Some upbeat and high energy, some reflective and tender. Showcasing his talents as both a guitarist and an arranger/bandleader. Many instrumentals. Special guest stars add extra spice (as if any was needed) to this sophisticated sound.

*1. Tinny retro start to this super cool wiggle. Uptempo yumminess.
2. Sublimely romantic dancing under the stars Latin jazz ballad.
*3. Sexy male vox, a mostly midtempo Latin R&B groove.
4. Slow ballad with the amazing Omara Portuondo on vocals. Sigh…
*5. Bright tropical happiness w/violin, e-guitar & perc. Very cool.
6. Slow and gentle w/a classic Cuban jazz elegance. Just lovely.
*7. Midtempo, BailakeSissoko on kora. Jazz w/world flourishes.
8. Slow w/husky/sexy female vocals. Fragile like crystal.
*9. Warm and sexy Latin sway w/a light touch.
10. Down/midtempo rumba with a modern late-night jazz vibe.
*11. Super cool bossa w/a retro feel.
12. Bright midtempo w/sophisticated, solid work from all.
