"This is the Rumba Club's 4th recording for Palmetto Records. As with many of their past recordings, they look back at the music of some of the legendary figures in jazz: John Coltrane (Straight Street) and Donald Byrd (Tanya). However, it doesn't end there, Rumba Club pays homage to three of Latin music's greatest dance bands: Orquesta Aragon (Quien Sabe Sabe), Eddie Palmieri's La Perfecta (Mi Corazon Te Llama) and Sonora Poncena (Soneremos El Tambo). This is music for listening or dancing, take your pick. Producer Andy Gonzalez says he was drawn to the Rumba Club because, "it showcases some very talented percussionists from Cuba, Puerto Rico and The Dominican Republic playing with these top notch jazz performers." In addition, there are original compositions by band members. I am told they put on a great show as well. I look forward to seeing the Rumba Club perform live the next time they are in New York."

"I discovered Rumba Club at a concert at the famous Blue Note. I instantly bought their CD, "Radio Mundo". This album demonstrates a perfect balance between jazz and salsa. Musicians are truly terrific, especially when it comes to drums. One of the very best albums I have had the opportunity to listen to in the last year."
