Overview

Pianist Mark Levine's Latin jazz quartet does not blaze any new trails on Isla, but the group performs a colorful repertoire with spirit. In addition to Levine, the main voice is percussionist Michael Spiro, whose variety of sounds and complex polyrhythms give the group (which is called the Latin Tinge) a lot of its musical personality. Harvey Wainapel makes one appearance apiece on soprano sax and clarinet (tenor is actually his strongest instrument), while Sheila Smith sings on "Ain't Nothing but the Blues." Otherwise, the main lead is by Levine, who sounds quite comfortable in this setting playing Afro-Cuban music. Fans of Latin jazz will enjoy this group.
