Album Review
Decca
Reviewed 2007-09-01 
(Pronounced: mal-key-EL) An Israeli-born Latin trombonist, now based in NY. It’s solid Latin jazz backed by a sassy/brassy band that’s heavy on the horns. A mix of instrumental & vocal tracks and standards and original compositions.

1. Upbeat, energetic Afro-Cuban dance w/some good solos.
*2. Muted intro, stylish downtempo Ellington classic. Retro coolness.
*3. Bouncy, bright fandango w/tripping melody.
4. A slow, lyrical bolero w/vocals.
5. Starts slow then picks up, w/bouncy clarinet. Sorta wiggly.
6. Slow and sweet Hoagy Charmichael classic given a Latin flair.
*7. Slow intro then a bright, upbeat dance w/vocals. Fun.
8. Slow 1:25 intro, can lead right into #9.
*9. Continuation of 8, a total party song. Brass, beats, energy.
10. Another short. Solo horns, slow & simple. Almost chamber-like.
11. Only :48. Tambourine percussion, can lead right into #12.
*12. Sweet & bright Brazilian choro w/a hint of swing.
*13. Slow, solo horn into then a hip, upbeat Cuban jam.
