Charlie Haden assembles an impressive lineup of musicians for this sensitively delivered project. Together they don't transform the Mexican ballads into jazz per se, but rather use them as an entry into a compellingly intuitive exchange between the musicians. The overall effect is a deeply sophisticated and refined interpretation of songs that couldn't be shown more respect than on this highly recommended and magic album.
Joe Lovano , alto saxophonist Miguel Zenon, flautist Oriente Lopez , trumpeter/flugelhornist Michael Rodriquez, and guitarists Larry Koonse and Lionel Louke
