Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
Arturo Sandoval brings all of his skills, enthusiasm, and connections to bear on this 1993 recording, composing 8 of the 11 tunes and fusing Afro-Cuban rhythms, jazz improvisation, and some unusually well-handled pop textures. Guest vocalists include Gloria Estefan, Vikki Carr, and Bill Cosby, while Sandoval scats ebulliently on "Groovin' High," which epitomizes the date's high spirits. Through it all, the trumpeter plays superbly, taking his stimulus directly from a bevy of talented percussionists who keep the beats percolating and multiplying. The support is terrific, with several outstanding Latin-jazz musicians making their presence felt, including percussionist Giovanni Hidalgo, flutist Dave Valentin, and pianist Danilo Pérez, and regular Sandoval associates trombonist Dana Teboe and saxophonist Ed Calle. It's a CD that demands dancing. --Stuart Broomer

CD Reviews

Afro Cuban music at it's best!
Chad E. Kirk | Altamonte Springs, FL United States | 08/04/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Arturo truly captures the fire an passion of Afro Cubano music in this album. From trak one, he produces a sound and feel of a latin street festival. The tribute to his grandfather (A Mis Abuelos) begins with a beautiful melody and then erupts into a big jazz sound that makes you want to salsa! This album will take you there and bring you back after having the time of your life!!"
A wonderfull album for latin jazz listeners.

"This album is a masterpiece. The interplay of melody and rhythm is beautiful. I cannot listen to it without getting up and dancing all over my house! Arturo's tone is fat and sweet and gives me chills to listen too. He is a fine musician and I think this album is a must-have for any serious latin jazz lover. Go for it!!!!!"
