    Trumpeter Diego Urcola put together something truly special for 2006's VIVA. A standard session featuring Urcola's bright, bold horn sound and formidable chops would be reason enough to celebrate, but the all-star team of sidemen the artist rounded up is an added bonus. Saxophonist/clarinetist Paquito D'Rivera, sax man Jimmy Heath, bassist Avishai Cohen, and vibes/marimba player Dave Samuels are among the luminaries on board here, and the group holds forth on the Latin-inflected numbers and the straight-ahead swing. Packed with superior playing and lively, percolating energy, VIVA is one of the best Latin jazz bets of 2006.

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (p.82) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Urcola's obviously learned a few things listening to Davis, his style indicates a patience with the material, and he's a friend of nuance."
