Joining the regular band members were Black Note trumpeter Gilbert Castellanos, Skip Howlett, and sonero Martin Padilla from Ponce, Puerto Rico. Most of the songs were written for the session. Santos penned the lovely Caminando with its shifting rhythms and jazzy sound. Matos contribution was the son montuno "Oye Mi Querida." Reed player Michel Turre composed Mambo Mona Mia X, which features the skillful horn players and a bongo solo from Orsetes Vilato. My personal favorite, I Don't Speak Spanish (But I Understand Everything When I' Dancing) is a spoken word piece read by Denise Cook. It has fiery Mambo background, which has been a showstopper at their live performances. This piece could be a kernel for a very exciting play. I don't dance Salsa or Mambo, but when I hear this music, you can be sure I'm out there doing a good imitation.
