Mejor Que Nunca (Better Than Ever)

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Manny Oquendo's Libre is an excellent band, but on this CD the musicians are mostly subservient to the vocalists, with the music often being more salsa than Latin jazz. The Libre Trombone Choir Papo Vasquez, Jimmy Bosch, Leonard Pollara, Dan Reagan, William Cepeda, Orlando Pena, Reynaldo Jorge, and Jose Vidal gets its spots especially on "Speak Low", but this is mostly a Latin dance record, well played but not all that adventurous.
