CD Reviews

Great music
Joseph Reader | USA | 03/25/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Most Mapleshade CDs are great-SOUNDING, though some of them are not MUSICALLY appealing. This one is great in every respect. This CD and the Sunnyland Slim CD might be the two overall best of Mapleshade's excellent output. The music on this CD is beautiful, energetic, and upbeat; it is beautifully played and the recording-quality is remarkable. I have never heard a more natural or realistic recording than this. I'm not a big fan of jazz generally, but I love this CD."
Excellent, Superb

"Excellent, superb work. The combination of a great conga player like Patato with a set of "winds" give this CD a unique and particular flavor. Enrique Fernandez has shown us that he is a great composer and a better sax player. I'm ashamed because as a native of Dominican Republic and a jazz lover (especially Latin Jazz) I had not known Fernandez's work earlier. Buen trabajo, mi hermano!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
