I heard the first track ("Caravan") on the radio one night, and immediately bought the CD. The song nearly blew my speakers out, the playing is so adventurous.
I'm not going to give any more details - just trust me, if you love jazz, you will surely love this absolute gem of a record. Although the sound is very different, this reminds me of listening to Cannonball (i.e., the big bold "knock-em dead" sound.)
I hope Mr. O'Farrill gets to read this review someday....you and your Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra have created something I'll be listening to for a long, long time. Five stars and the mere 17 dollars I paid, doesn't do enough justice, so all I can say to anyone reading this....BUY THIS CD!
This talented musician wants to credit his genetics (Chico O'Farrill was genius in his own right), But I'll assert he has his own style and persuasion that is addictive, to say the least.
It is a no brainer to see how this CD was awarded a Grammy.

I go to New York City once a year. I always include an evening at Birdland to hear his orchestra. I stay for both sets. It is an outstanding evening.Published on December 31, 2012 by Amazon Customer
I didn't know much about his music when I bought this album - what an array of sound! He really captures stylistic diversity within the larger scope of Latin arrangements. Read morePublished on September 16, 2009 by Noah Harmon
