Down Beat (5/97, pp.65-66) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...Franzetti's arrangements owe more to Gil Evans than Mario Bauza....emphasizes the European over the African side of Cuban music....beautifully crafted charts, with their lush voicings and lustrous textures..."JazzTimes (9/96, p.97) - "...the ballad quotient runs very high and evokes Cuba as a tropical paradise (albeit in the mists of his memory). Percussion is downplayed, as lush carpets of brass and winds prevail....I further predict that this highly satisfying album will become...a jazz classic..."0.2282731
