"A remarkable record! Now that some of the most talented Cuban musicians are seasoning us with classical expressions of Caribbean music, this record makes more sense than ever. "El Maestro" Larry Harlow has compiled some of the most talented musicians of our time to deliver the most interconnected Caribean music ever. From the old Son Montuno to the new Salsa and Guaguanco, this record delicately explores and discovers the rhythms of the Caribbean. You can actually taste the notes, instruments and feelings of the interpreters in this recording. As a deep sea diver amazes when finding the most bountiful treasure, you will feel amaze when your senses hear the music and rhythms in this live recording. It has so much taste, color and beat that you will always play it one more time. It is the beginning but never the end. From its first remarkable composition Senor Sereno to Mayari, it brakes the time barrier from Son Montuno to modern Salsa. It explores the past without invading it. It mingles with it, but always looking forward. "Es la Obra Maestra de Harlow." It is a Gem! Remember, when you hear this music that some of the musicians have been members of the elite "Fania All Stars" ensemble. At the time the recording was made, Mr. Harlow had put together, to what many considered, the Best Salsa Band Ever!Listen very close....You'll even actually see the notes."
