Concord Picante/Stiletto Flats
Being a live Jazz album, most of the tracks on this CD are pretty long (most are at least 4 minutes and up to 10 minutes). That being said, this album showcases a really tight knit rhythm section, and some awesome latin grooves. The horn section and guitar leads make it interesting enough so it doesn't just fade into background grooves, but always keeps the listener interested in the complex sambas and grooves. I guess I'm using the word groove a lot in this review, but I think that accurately describes this album: it just grooves from start to finish. Give it a listen if you have the time.
