"De todas las producciones de Sandoval esta es mi preferida.Todas las canciones han sido perfectamente interpretadas e inclusive prefiero las versiones que Sandoval interpreta en este disco que las propias canciones originales.La cancion MarteBelona es mi preferida entre todas las canciones,tiene mucho sentimiento cubano.Pienso que de aqui a unos anos este disco se convertira en un clasico,asi como lo es hoy KIND OF BLUE. Arturo tu eres el "Miles Davis" del jazz latino. Muchas gracias por esta excelente musica.Felicidades."
Star studded, but a bit overproduced for my taste

"I have seen Arturo a few times and always enjoy him immensely, but I would have to say this CD is a bit too smooth in production and mixing. The songs are quite good though and I like the singing. Maybe he'll listen to Buena Vista Social club and take a hint that it doesn't have to be mixed and smoothed out so much as it takes away from the spontaneity and interaction between the players. He is a tremendous piano player as well, like REAL good... go figure."
My introduction to Arturo Sandoval

"This was the 1st album I got introduced to him since hearing him play w/ the GRP All-Star Big Band, Maynard Ferguson, Dizzy Gillespie among others. Moments later I got introduced to him in general just to hear do his own thing on this CD which I may pick up ASAP. There's not much I gotta say about he sure is one of all-time labelmates in the trumpet genre, period. I luv the variation to the trumpet 'cuz that's my God. I'd wanted to meet him badly 'cuz he's does gotta a lotta skills, I mean a WHOLE lot. Make him put out more until the day he's retired. God bless your heart Arturo you're still the man.
And P.S.: He was a pioneer to his mentor and idol, the late Dizzy Gillespie (R.I.P.). If u see the movie "For Love or Country: The Arturo Sandoval Story" w/ Andy Garcia as Arturo and Charles S. Dutton as Dizzy, you know is more like a semi-autobiographical scene to his life and times in the music area."
