Album Review
Reviewed 2009-02-07 
The Latin percussion legend and his kick-ass15-piece orchestra keep things hot and spicy with mostly original compositions (though you gotta love the cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Don’t You Worry...”). It’s full of energy, passion, and hip-shaking rhythms. Every track rocks. Lots of crowd noise.

1. .20 introduction
2. Drums into brass, wicked fast twists and turns into one hot jam.
3. The classic. Midtempo, faint vocals from band, great horns/drums.
4. Starts off with a burn and keeps going, fast vocals, hot band.
5. Relaxed big-band romance, great solos, sexy vocals. Sigh...
6. Drum tour-de-force then horns join in the race to the end. Yow!
7. Stevie’s hit gets a cha-cha-cha makeover. So fricking cool.
8. Hot & fun w/playful vocals from band & lots of energy.
9. Fast percussion then equal horns & keyboards. Head-spinning fast.
10. Cal Tjader guests on vibes. Upbeat, driving, serious Latin jazz.
