    On nearly all his projects, trombonist Conrad Herwig is known for his tasteful arrangements, excellent playing, and keen instinct for top-notch personnel, characteristics he's brought to bear on his Latin treatments of compositions by jazz legends like John Coltrane and Miles Davis. Herwig applies the same standard to his live recording, THE LATIN SIDE OF WAYNE SHORTER, taking on compositions by the great saxophonist, including "Ping Pong," "Adam's Apple," and "Footprints," and infusing them with healthy doses of Brazilian, Afro-Cuban, and other Latin rhythms. Shorter's dynamic tunes provide the perfect backdrop for Herwig's impressive facility for reinvention.
