Sensitive sounds from pianist Roberto Fonseca
– jazz, but with plenty of Cuban undercurrents, yet delivered here in very laidback, soulful ways that are quite different from the usual Latin jazz set! Fonseca
's got this wonderfully round tone in his piano – a sound that's got strong roots, even when mellow – and which slides into the mix nicely, alongside a bit of flute and clarinet from Javier Zalba, bass from Omar Gonzalez, drums from Ramses Rodriguez, and percussion from Joel Hierrezuelo. The album's also got a bit of vocals – from Fonseca
himself, plus guests Mayra Andrade and Raul Midon. Titles include "Everyone Deserves A Second Chance", "Drume Negrita", "Lo Que Me Hace Vivir", "Fragmento De Misa", "Como En Las Peliculas", "Cuando Una Madre Llama A Su Hijo", and "Siete Potencias".
