"RCA Victor presents Ray Barretto & New World Spirit Band, to prove once and for all "Jazz will survive", with this new and innovative album featuring tunes of Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Wayne Shorter and John Coltrane. The latin flavor on this CD is simply wonderful, every track is a winner. Highly recommend this one of a kind for all Jazz and even Salsa lovers. As the late Duke Ellington would say - "Music is our Mistress", so sit back and enjoy...Portraits in Jazz and Clave!.Total Time: 57:49 on 9 Tracks/ RCA Victor - 74321 68452 2 (1999)"
