Product Description

Amazon.com

This combo, featuring vibraphone-marimba master Dave Samuels, Puerto Rican flutist Dave Valentin, and Argentine keyboardist Dario Eskenazi, whisks Afro-Latin rhythms into a zesty smooth-jazz sauce. And this CD, with percussionists Richie Flores and Roberto Quintero, is the group's most aggressive to date. Various grooves, such as the mambo, songo, samba, and the cha-cha, are sonically stamped with the impressive improvisations of the soloists. Special guest and founding CJP member Paquito D'Rivera's birdlike alto sax lines fly on the spirited rendition of Thelonious Monk's tricky tune "Bemsha Swing," which features melodic snippets of the Cuban classic, "Sanduga." On Oliver Nelson's bluesy "Stolen Moments," Samuels's improvisations evoke Cal Tjader's good vibes. On "See You in a Minute," Valentin pays tribute to the late Cuban flutist Jose Fajardo. Flores and Quintero work their drum magic on the folkloric "Masacoteando." All together, the CJP speaks all of the Latin musical languages, with the accent on swing. --Eugene Holley Jr.

You might, if you've heard the other four or five discs by CJP, and then put this one on. Always creditable, it seems to me that these guys have never, before now, that is, lived up to their potential.
This is just a delightful disc, brimming with energy, focused playing, tricky rhythms effortlessly pulled off, and just a lot of musical spunk. Guest Paquito D'Rivera sounds as good as I've ever heard him--and that's quite a lot, including twice live.
Maybe past CJP recordings had too many ch(i)efs--Andy Narell, Steve Khun--even Paquito, originally. Now, it's just Dave Samuels, an underrated vibesman in my opinion, and Dave Valentin, who finally seems to have found the right band, headlining with their best rhythm section ever.
If you're a fan of jazz with a Latin accent, you won't want to miss out on this fine release.

I agree completely with the previous reviewer. From the opening beat, this CD will have you on your feet. It is full of energy and feeling, the kind of music that sounds fresh no matter how many times you hear it.
One other point: This recording of CJP reminded me of early Return to Forever, which I have always loved. The percussion, in particular, had me looking for Airto's name on this CD. For those who like CJP and are no familiar with Return to Forever or Airto, they should check them out.

Caribbean Jazz Project was one of these unforgettable drive forces in which innovation of the blend of imported rhythms of Afro Latin tendency, Cuban influence, and Jazz.

Dave Samuels and Dave Valentin were the protagonists of this successful idea that renewed and influenced directly the sound of Fat Burger, for instance, impregnating of fabulous taste of the kaleidoscopic possibilities of the Latin music.
