The title tells it all – as trumpeter Charlie Sepulveda serves up a genre-defining set of Latin jazz – a record that's every bit about the jazz solos and instrumentation in the lineup, as it is the Latin rhythms at the core! The main group is just a sextet – no giant Latin ensemble, and instead a combo that plays with the fluid intensity of a hardbop group – led by Charlie Sepulveda on trumpet, with Norberto Ortiz on tenor, Eduardo Zayas on piano, Gabriel Rodriguez on bass, Francisco Alcala on drums, and Nicholas Cozaboom on percussion. There's some famous guest help on the record – trumpet from Randy Brecker, trombone from Steve Turre, and flute from Nestor Torres – but the main group is more than enough to hold our interest, as they really cook on long tracks .
