Hot, sophisticated, piano-driven Latin jazz from a local artist. Featuring fluid keyboards, swinging percussion, hot horns and some vocals. Tight arrangements and good energy throughout (most songs composed & arranged by Mauleon). Lots of heat and harmonics with excellent playing from RB and her corps of great guest stars. It’s swinging, solid, and all play-worthy. Love it! No FCCs.
