If you are looking for something special to buy a friend, look on Amazon! They have everything you'd ever find anywhere. This item was for a friend who followed Latin music in NYC and knew many of the people inside the book. It was well received.

There was an ongoing dialogue over the years between Max Salazar and Leonardo Acosta. Salazar from New York and Acosta from Havana. Reading these two in tandem was a constant journey between the two cities and how the music flowed and was shaped by both. Great fun!
