  • Credits
    ProducerBob Sancho; Papo Vazquez
    EngineerPeter Karl

    Personnel includes: Papo Vazquez (conductor); Willie Williams (tenor saxophones); Arturo O'Farrill (piano); John Benitez (bass); Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez (drums); Roberto Cepeda (percussion).
    The music on this set is well played if conventional. Mixing together Afro-Cuban rhythms with jazz improvising and occasional group vocals, the results are danceable, highly rhythmic, and creative within the boundaries of Latin jazz. Trombonist Papo Vazquez and tenor saxophonist Willie Williams get plenty of solo space, but it is the sound of the ensembles and the long melody statements that are most memorable. Unfortunately, both the liner notes and the personnel listing for each track are microscopic (the packaging is greatly flawed), which is a bit inexcusable. But otherwise, this set, which consists of Vazquez originals plus Thelonious Monk's "Stuffy Turkey," should please Latin jazz followers. ~ Scott Yanow
