Absolutely burning salsa disc of original tunes.
I just recieved my Azucar disc yesterday, and it is an awesome disc. The Horn lines sound awesome, and they are written really well. The disc is full of energy and all the solos are great. I am a professional player and salsa producer, and I was really impressed with this disc. If you dont have this disc GET IT!
