Album Review

This CD is a real gem. The great Afro-Cuban pianist Hilario Duran is joined by Jane Bunnett (on flute and soprano), trumpeter Larry Cramer, a string quartet, bassist Roberto Occhipinti, drummer Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez, and Rodolfo Valdes Terry on congs.

The solos are consistently exciting and the ensembles are difficult to resist, making this Duran's strongest solo date yet.
