Album Review
Reviewed 2007-10-02
This Oakland-based band serves up original compositions as well as classics from the Cuban jazz and New York salsa scenes. Sons, guajiras, cha-chas and salsas will get you wiggling and make you want to dance. The band (violin, horns, piano, guitar, bass, and percussion) is hot and the lead singer is a warm, sexy flirt. Good stuff.

1. Hot, hip Afro-Cuban dance framed in a sharp arrangement.
*2. Stylish, midtempo, jazzy opening into upbeat salsa groove.
*3. Sweet mid/upbeat son wiggle. So good.
*4. Nicely swaying, midtempo cha-cha jam. Very cool.
*5. Upbeat salsa w/a catchy energy.
*6. Relaxed midtempo Latin jazz that showcases the band.
7. Mid/upbeat salsa w/nice work from all. Wanna dance?
8. Slow, romantic then a midtempo cha-cha. Romantic & lush.
9. Slow intro, then upeat. Nicely arranged jazz dance w/class.
10. Downtempo, relaxed, full of longing and romance.
