Benn Clatworthy, Tenor, Soprano Saxes & Flute, Joey Sellers, Trombone, Bryan Velasco, Piano, Brian J Wright, Acoustic Bass and Jorge Carbonell, Drums were regulars in Francisco's band.

From Kandahar to the title track, Nuestra Era (Our Time), all take Latin Jazz in the right direction. Thank you for keeping Francisco Aguabella's music alive." Poncho Sanchez. "I like it very much! It's fresh, but reminds me of the music I grew up with...Very good!!!" Airto Moreira.

to write a review


From the first Funky groove of Taxi Terry, the poignant, haunting Blues For Gaza, Aguabella has explored and evolved in their second CD. There isn't a bad track on this CD. The title track tells an interesting, musical tale of a journey through the desert of California on the way to Las Vegas. The creativity and musicianship are superb! You won't be disappointed! I highly recommend this CD.
