Latin Jazz at its Best
R. JUDELSOHN | Buffalo, NY USA | 08/21/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Bauza's Tanga Suite, and other tunes by equally skilled composer/arrangers, are sensationally performed by a Latin jazz big band. The percussionists develop incredible rhythms, the trumpet section is screaming, and the trombone solos had me dancing and laughing. It's been said that Bauza created Latin jazz--in 1943--while blending his native Cuban music with the burgeoning bebop that was transforming jazz at the time.
This album, recorded almost 50 years later, proves how enduring and exciting the music is."
Outstanding Big Band Afro-Cuban

"This is the best of the small group of Mario Bauza CDs. It is amazing that someone like Mario Bauza kept going such a long time. This is quintessential Afro-Cuban big band. It is traditional, yet powerful with really strong players and hot trumpets throughout. You'll love it. Also look into Machito, Chano Pozo."
