Pianist Alex Conde
always has a great way of blending jazz performance with Latin rhythms – and that approach really takes off here, as Conde
's core combo gets fantastic frontline help from Brian Lynch on trumpet, Conrad Herwig on trombone, and Dayna Stephens on tenor and soprano sax! Both Lynch and Herwig are no strangers to sounds like this – and they really shine when called upon – soaring out to give the music this great sense of color and energy – which is really saying a lot, given Conde
's already-strong work with the bass, drums, and cajon in the rhythms. A few moments feature guest vocals – from Alejandro Conde
Sr and Ismael Fernandez – and titles include "The Great Priest", "Jungle Street", "Spring Break", "Upper West Side", "Bulerijazz", "Descarga Por Bulerias", and "El Emigrante".
