This music has been released previously, but it's fantastic to hear the band once again in its prime! Chucho Valdes, Paquito D'Rivera, Arturo Sandoval and so many others as young men blowing the audience away at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1978. Of particular worth, this "live" recording of Juana Mil Ciento kicks off with multi-layered percussion, and shows off the ridiculous chops of the entire band.

If you've been waiting for a re-release over the years of "Irakere", this is the one you've been hoping for!
