Jazz on the Latin Side Allstars, Vol. 2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Evan C. Gutierrez
In the tradition of Vol. 1, Jazz on the Latin Side Allstars, Vol. 2 is a pleasure-packed tour de force of the finest Latin musicians the West Coast has to offer. With more than a few opportunities to hear these legends, giants, and young lions solo and strut their stuff, it's little wonder that these projects were such a breakout success. Because of the visionary nature of the group's leader, José Rizo, Latin music lovers everywhere have a chance to hear some of their favorite players in a fresh context.

All Music Guide - Evan C. Gutierrez
In the tradition of Vol. 1, Jazz on the Latin Side Allstars, Vol. 2 is a pleasure-packed tour de force of the finest Latin musicians the West Coast has to offer. With more than a few opportunities to hear these legends, giants, and young lions solo and strut their stuff, it's little wonder that these projects were such a breakout success. Because of the visionary nature of the group's leader, José Rizo, Latin music lovers everywhere have a chance to hear some of their favorite players in a fresh context. So often when these "all-star" groups are formed, they are bound by playing material so conventional that the performances end up stale. There's a fine line between "tried and true" and "worn thin." Luckily, Rizo realizes that, and there's plenty of bebop and timba mixed in with the cha cha and mambo. The inclusion of next-generation players like drummer Cougar Estrada and bass player Rene Camacho alongside the style's founding fathers like Al McKibbon and Francisco Aguabella creates a vital and lively conversation. Having been recorded live in front of a nightclub audience creates a vibrant and energetic sonic space. With consistently amazing, lively performances and excellent live production, you can just about smell the mojitos and cerveza.
