    Ry Cooder, the guitarist/composer/arranger behind the Buena Vista Social Club and numerous film scores (JOHNNY HANDSOME, PARIS, TEXAS), is back with a suave collection of tunes infused with more of the sinuous rhythms from Cuba. Just as we are comfortably settling into the seductive feel set up on the opening track, "Drume Negrita," enter Mr. Cooder's languorous pedal steel and we are transported beyond the south-of-the-border to a place both exotic and intriguing. On this set, Cooder is teamed with the leader of the popular 60'S and 70's group Los Zafiros, Manuel Galban. Galban and Cooder trade tasty and occasionally quirky riffs that put their distinctive guitars front and center. The mutual admiration these artists have for one another exudes a contagious warmth and wealth of good humor that underlies all the proceedings. The temperature rises on "Monte Adentro," courtesy of a wonderfully lucy-goosey rhythm section and a tres solo by Mr. Cooder and on the title track, a melody in signature style is served up by none other than Herb Albert.

    Mojo (Publisher) (1/03, p.96) - "...When Uncle Ry packs his bags and books that flight, he never comes back without something cool, weird and distinctive..."
