Lo mejor de la descarga boricua
Cali Pachanguero | Miami, USA | 12/23/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Desafortunadamente esta agrupación no ha vuelto a reunirse para regalarnos algo de lo que aquí encuentran. Para quienes aman el saber, los vientos bien afincados, y el buen "golpe" Frank Ferrer y sus muchachos han hecho un gran trabajo musical, del cual quiero expresar mi grata sorpresa por el performance de Carlos Fonseca en "Donde vas". El mejor tema de éste album doble. "A Barcelona" es un gran tema, a pesar de que España no se considere como una plaza de conocedores salseros, sino de nuevos fanáticos al ritmo."
Uneven but occasionally very good

(3 out of 5 stars)

"The first 5 selections on disc 1 of this 2-CD set showcase a very impressive band doing straight-ahead salsa/latin jazz. Guest musicians include legends like Andy Gonzalez (bass), Papo Vazquez(trombone), Charlie Sepulveda (trumpet), Ray Vega (trumpet) and Alex Acuna (drums). The fare becomes much lighter from there--more like latin pop than salsa. The second disc continues this trend, although the percussion showcase "D.B. Goes to New York" is quite good (despite the ridiculous and unnecessary introduction). This group shows great promise. The musicianship is first rate, but the choice of tunes seems focused on a misguided attempt at cross-over pop success."
