Review: a personal history told through music, the cd becomes a celebration, letting loose of the monumental rhythms of Latin America through the fire of drums, fanned of course by the rest of the instrumentation, led by the voice, but also memorably enriched by woodwinds and brass; piano, bass and percussion, all of which is fluffed out in the arrangements played out by an exquisite string quartet. All originals except #9
