Another indispensable album from Kip Hanrahan's American Clave label recorded in 1997 with enough percussive drive to propulse you into a state of deep rumba.

"One can appreciate this recording on three levels. First, the amazing focused intensity of the percussion -- which offers density and detail without clouding over or wandering off track. (Credit Horacio El Negro Hernandez and Robby Ameen for anchoring the drums on Alto...) Second, the organic melodic flavor -- largely derived form the warm vocals fo Xiomara Laugart and Orlando Puntilla Rios, as well as the full-bodied tenor saxophone of Charles Neville. And third, the vocal celebration of rhythm, love, and life ... One does not have to speak the language to understand the deeper statement communicated by these artists. They speak a musical dialect with universal appeal, offering a message that bears repeated listening - and, on occasion, compels one to get up and shake a little booty." - Nils Jacobson, All About Jazz
