The Roaring Fifties

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Storm Roberts
Percussionist Rosario moved back to Puerto Rico in the '70s, but he came up in NYC. He once said his influences were the likes of Tito Rodriguez and Herbie Mann, not the Cubans. He also said, "I like clean music, music that has definition." Put those two elements together and you have a dynamite big-band sound: crisp, elegant, and driving. Call it timelessly classic, but this band plays as freshly as if they'd only just invented the sound.
