While the title would have listeners believe that these sessions are of a piece, they are actually compiled tracks from the years 1976-1978, with four different bands and five different sessions — including two in Havana. Some of the D'Rivera's associates on these dates include the Finland Jazz Combo, Chucho and Oscar Valdes, Arturo Sandoval, Emilio Morales, and Irakere. The program contains everything from American standards such as "I Want to Talk About You," given a squealing yet lyrical read — and "Stella By Starlight," to fiery Cuban jazz, such as the stomping "La Patica," to Brazilian-styled numbers such as " "Bossa Del Pico Electrico." Whether the accompaniment is Irakere, or the more traditional players in Europe or Latin America, D'Rivera's horn is constantly burning and twisting, creating new harmonic lines in the front as he reinvents cadences rhythmically. This is a stellar collection, and one that every fan should at least hear.
