Great stuff

Oscar Hernandez, who has apported his talents to the giants of Latin music is out with another great production with his killer band, The Spansh Harlem Orchestra. This is a rhythmic, swinging, complex but easy, ready for the dance floor or "for your listening pleasure" type album. To sample just a few, get nasty and burn some shoe leather with “Yo Te Prometo”. Que afinque! Then switch gears and check out the infectious Son Montuno “Cancion Para Ti”, a really groovy tune. “Como Te Quise” is a monster number that propels itself from a Rumba into a smokin’ Guaguanco. For all of us old-school types out there, there has to be a nice Bolero. You get one on “Tres Palabras”. It's a standard but with a twist, vocals are “a trio” and it incorporates some great flute interplay. For Latin Jazz fans, Oscar, also being a master of this genre, includes the fabulous “Somos Uno” with Michael Brecker. Awesome, Wow! Finishing up the album is “Soy El Tambor”, a nasty tune that is basically placed last so that you can beg for more. On a personal note, I miss “Brother Ray” on vocals, but nonetheless, start to finish; this is a great album, with a little something for everyone and a lot of Salsa for the world at large.
