Review: This collective of seasoned musicians delivers beautifully on the promise of the album’s title. The abiding respect they have for the Afro-Latino rhythms is amply demonstrated in the authenticity with which they are played and built upon. They artfully interact, support and push each other in a spirit of comradery. The result is a lovingly arrayed collection of mostly original compositions by contemporary composers who are also virtuosic players performing on this recording.
