"this CD, "El comandante - meringue-jazz", is excellent. I particularly enjoy the tenor saxophone chases between Mario Rivera, and the guess star, George Coleman. It really remember me some famous duels like Dexter Gordon and Wardell Gray, Sonny Rollins and Sonny Stitt "Eternal Triangle", or Tenor Madness, the unique meeting with Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane.Mario Rivera is a tenor saxophone master, but he also plays many others instruments as well. Unbeliveable ! The meeting between meringue (music of Santo Domingo, birth place of Rivera, in the Caribben), and jazz, is a very original and pleasant experience. Everyone must buy this record. Congratulation to Mr. RIVERA and all the great musicians (Hilton Ruiz on piano is fabulous on Afternoon in Paris and Have you met Miss Jones)who play on this album."
