A septet of dedicated musicians, steeped in both Latin and Bop
deliver a no holds barred treatment of some well loved Horace Silver tunes, as well as originals framed between Cuban folk drumming played by masters of the genre. No wannabees or dilettantes welcome here. This album was recorded for musicians,
by musicians who had sold their souls for the crative muse of fire. It was among the very first latin-jazz albums to make a serious statement among the cognescenti. Raw and wild, but never tasteless or cute. A true hard bop latin gem. You have my word.
