This album blew me away last year when it came out and I listened to it many a time. Bosch, of Puerto Rican descent, has been a session musician for qite a long time but this album represents the first time he's been at the helm. Many of the tunes build to irresistible, mesmerizing climaxes. The album shines with heart and sincerity and Jimmy and friends obviously had a great time doing it. You'd have to be arock not to feel moved by the anguish which comes through in Otra Oportunidad, about the death of Jimmy's brother from substance abuse. If you want more than the sappy romantic salsa that dominates the market these days, go for this fresh, inspiring album.

This one is my current favorite, destinated to become a downright classic. The party begins when you read the liner notes. As opposed to the usual oblique remarks, this booklet tells a small but interesting story about the trombone. Step 2: put in the cd. Step 3: be as amazed as myself at JBs capacity to put on an irresistable groove AND at the same time never loose a detail ('Descargarana'). Duke Ellington comes to mind! What makes "Soneando Trombon" truly beyond the average salsa is the heartfelt cry at some of the songs. You really have to be a cynical drunk when you are capable of NOT getting touched by 'Muy Joven Para Mi' - and that is just one example. Last christmas I saw Bosch and his 'devastating' (LA Times) Orquesta in Antwerpen, Belgium. It was sensational. Instead of the irritating in-your-face happy/happy/joy/joy-ness of which some salsa-bands can't escape from, Bosch Y Su Orquesta puts the groove where it belongs: in the heart. The question remains: why don't you hear this wonderful cd in the clubs? The truth is out there, dj's! "Que ago ahora! Que ago ahora!" "No Importa lo que diga la gente!"

Recently in concert in downtown San Diego opening for Willie Colon, Jimmy Bosch and his band of intensely gifted musicians brought the house down with their incredible triple harmonies on trombone, trumpet and baritone sax as well as a spectacular percussion section. Tireless performances by the congas, timbales and bongos coupled with the underlying bass is like hearing Ray Barreto with Cachao and Roberto Roena with Manny Oquendo all at once. Multiple encores at the concert finally led Jimmy Bosch to guest perform on Willie Colon's entire set. Tremendous !!

Of "Soneando trombo," by Jimmy Bosch, the artist said in his liner notes, "Enjoy, Dance, Scream, Smile, Cry, Clap, Experience the Experience." Truer words were never spoke; I don't think the trombone, that odd, in-between sort of instrument, has ever sung a more clarion call.

Bosch gets a riveting amount of feeling, considering his instrument, into some of his songs, for example "Otra Oportunidad,"that pays tribute to his beloved brother, dead of drug addiction. But even this number, suffused with feeling as it is, is danceable salsa.

I have very little technical knowledge of Latin music - or, unfortunately, music in general. But I was lucky enough to once see Bosch in live performance, down here in Wilmington, playing with the Spanish Harlem Orchestra, and just thinking about it now has sent chills down my spine. I couldn't believe my eyes: Bosch is a short man, and there he was up on stage, dancing as he played: you could almost believe he and his trombone were one. And the music was so intensely danceable as to get the dead up and out of their graves. It certainly got the audience up, and insistently dancing, despite the best efforts of the ushers, who were worried about the city's fire department code.

I have never written a CD review before, but I figured that I would be doing an injustice to all music lovers if I were to not express how wonderful this music is. I have owned SONEANDO TROMBON since it was released in '98. It is still my favorite album. Since then, not a week has gone by that I don't find myself singing "Otra Oportunidad" at least once. I love that it starts with "Descargarana" which provides the listener with an introduction to the band. It is Latin Jazz in its purest form. If you are to own one Latin album, this should be it.
