Designed as a musical tour through Latin America, the music ranges from a tribute to Cal Tjader and Astor Piazzolla's "Libertango" to "Andalucia" better known as "The Breeze and I" and "Bluellespie" which fuses together parts of several Dizzy Gillespie-associated songs. The blend between the vibes and steel drums is unique, the rhythm section pianist Dario Eskenazi, bassist Oscar Stagnaro, drummer Mark Walker and percussionist Pernell Saturnino is versatile and exciting, and D'Rivera's soprano playing in particular is impressive. Easily recommended to all jazz listeners.
