“The Gathering” by Afro Bop Alliance
Warm big band tune from an excellent ensemble. Nothing standard about this composition, which sounds fresh as any jazz being recorded today. I do like what Paquito D'Rivera says about this ensemble, that the mix they've achieved is so balanced you never feel the music is too Latin to be Jazz, or too Jazzy to be Latin.
The 2008 Latin Grammy Award winners for "Latin Jazz Album of the Year," return with their all-star fueled big band for another powerful recording of dynamic new compositions. With special guests including Dave Samuels and Roberto Quintero, they perform works by Luis Perdomo, Hector Martignon, Dave Samuels, Mike Pope and Vince Norman.
