"This CD is quite enjoyable, but not for the Tropical feel. The musical selections are very tropical and Latin in flavor. However the approach in arranging these selections is more easy listening and almost classically structured in the instrument grouping and layering. The rhythm styling seems almost as if the musicians are holding back by request of the conductor/arranger Andre Kostelanetz. This causes the music to actually loose some of the Tropical flavor that the selections have the potential to possess. The focus of the listener is then placed more on the melodic aspects of the tunes. Andre has also decided that slower paces and basic cord structuring would be used. Therefore the music takes on a more relaxed feel, almost to the point of hypnotizing the listener. Therefore I recommend this CD to someone who is looking to get a little sleep or to unwind with a glass of wine. I recommend it for chilling out on a sunday after a long busy week. However if your interest is in Music with a tropical feel and rhythm, you best look elsewhere."
