MUSIC REVIEW BY George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

This session by pianist/composer Oscar Hernandez is strong on both art and Latin Jazz. He brings together a top notch team of Justo Almario/ts-fl, Jimmy Branly/dr, Christian Moraga/perc and Jorge Perez/b for ten sizzling originals. Trumpeter Gilbert Castellanos guests the slinking "Right On" while he teams with Almario for a peppy title track. The percussion dazzles on the snappy "Timeshift" and bops with delight on "ESPN Blues" while the leader himself is lovely on "Fort Apache" and "Como Te Amo" while Branly brushes away with delight. Almario's flute floats over the salsa'd "Danzon Para Las Seis" and lurks around the corner on "One Day Soon." A real joy!
