CD Reviews

Awesome jazz (nuff said)
Jason Crawford | 12/07/1998

"An excellent album that I would highly recommend to anyone. The first three songs are jumpin' and the remake of 'Cantaloupe Island" is truly infectious. Expand your musical horizons. You won't be disappointed!"

"I came accross this CD in the used bin and thought it looked interesting. To my surprise, this is an OUTSTANDING record! You can't sit still , full of Latin Groves, it is a must have for any Jazz or Rock Fan. One of my cd's I can listen to by myself, or while throwing a Rockin' Party. Hope they release another."
Confident, competent, catchy Latin jazz...

"Just like a prior reviewer, I found this CD in the used section of our county's best music retailer. Never heard of the group, but since I like Afro-Cuban sounds, I gambled on it. Glad I did. This is pleasant stuff, but lively. Nothing dull here, yet nothing screechy. It's almost as interesting as the Blue Note label's famous "Latino Jazz" compilation, which features some of the greatest names in the Afro-Cuban category over the past four decades. If you like that kind of music, you'll appreciate Yeska's performances. They deliver horns, percussion, piano, guitar and bass. Nine of the ten tunes seem to be originals created by the six members of the group, who on this disc are joined by guests for extra percussion and the distinctive accent of a trombone. The one song not new is Herbie Hancock's "Cantaloupe Island". While the group creates a sensuous atmosphere, it is an active sensuality. The listeners who know how to mambo, tango or lambada will find it hard to sit still during these songs."
