El Puente features up tempo old school Latin Jazz (danceable) arrangements and contemporary original compositions featuring the Vibraphone. With a style comparable to Cal Tjader and Tito Puente, Steve Pouchie performs this collection of songs with authenticity and flavor. Accompanied by a formidable array of artists known in the New York Latin Jazz scene, this recording promises to be a memorable addition to the archives of Latin Jazz vibe music, now and in the future.
