Afro Caribbean Jazz – but with a good dose of New York Latin as well – just the kind of wonderful blend we'd expect from Batacumbele on a classic like this! All tracks are nice and long, and are recorded with an open, free-flowing energy that was hardly used in Latin music at the time – a mode that hearkens back to the jam sessions of the descarga generation, and some of the most creative modes of the 70s modernists as well! Like the best of those artists, Batacumbele has a way of weaving old traditions into something new – working complex musical patterns, but with a quality that's right on the money, right away – really grabbing you in, and holding you rapt throughout! The jazz aspect of this record is even higher than most of their other sessions – with trumpet from Tommy Villarini, trombone from William Cepeda, tenor and flute from Hector Veneros, keyboards from Amuni Nacer and Arturo Ortiz, and lots of great percussion from Angel Cachete Maldonado and other members of the group! Includes long instrumental numbers "May Day" and "Hot Blood", plus a cover of Horace Silver's "Nutville" – and the vocal track "Cachita".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
