For those jazz listeners who enjoy the Latin sound, this is a perfect gift, and a lot of fun to have in the home library. It features one of Latin sounds greatest jazz pianists, Rebeca Mauleon with guest musicians. This is truly an Afro-Cuban play along adventure as well, since the CD is accompanied by a spiral-bound 8"x10" book of 49 pages that the listener can follow while listening, or play along with the music if instruments available. There are 23 tracks. The pulsating, lively CD is 70 minutes long, and it is a pleasurable experience to listen to.
Rebeca Mauleon is on keyboards, and she is a wonderful jazz pianist; she also sings coro. Oscar Stagnaro's bass is lively and reveals his great gifts as a bass musician!
This would be a great idea if you wanted to introduce a friend to this music, an idea that would be long appreciated afterwards, for not only is the CD there, also is the booklet for review and study. Carlos Caro appears on bongos, percussion and coro, joined by Orestes Vilato on timbales, percussion and coro, and Edgardo Cambon on congas, percussion, and coro. Muy Caliente is something to have and enjoy! Excellent!
