Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2003-04-04 
This is the 4th CD of the Hombres' Latin/funk partying, but this one has a twist: Summers and Mayfield traveled to Haiti, Trinidad, Cuba and elsewhere, recording with local musicians at each stop. The results are upbeat and energetic -- albeit glossy and radio-friendly. Good stuff, though.

1- Latin jazz, spritely, with cheesy vocals/chants
3*- Mid/fast, happy danceable
5- Breezy, loungy
8*- More easygoing but still fiery
9- Fast and rolling
11- Soft and rolling
14*- Soulful, w/great harmony vocs & B3 organ
21- Reggae
23 - Gospel

Several tracks are interludes, often less than 1 minute, played by the guest musicians. Some are just little sound bites; others, like these two, are fun little displays:

4*- Cool, lotsa percussion
13*- Joyous New Orleans stomp
