Rene Camacho comes in to add his spicy groove on the Bass. Playing Timbales throughout the project is the youngest of the Ortiz Brothers, George Ortiz. The Martin Brother Horn Section comes in to play on 5 tunes and shows just how tight the brothers can play together. And to round it all off is the beautiful Guitar stylings of Rick White.

Tasty stuff!
Some very caliente (hot) latin jazz and salsa music with a funky groove from L.A. Mostly all original material from the Cafe Cubano's personnel too. Scott and the seven other musicians are first-rate! Their music gets my mouth salivating for some "fried neckbones and home fries." Tasty stuff!

Ramon Brito

Above expectations!!!
Great tunes and a very good band. I have long appreciated Scott's work with my all-time Latin Jazz hero, Poncho Sanchez. This is a very good CD, so if you read this review, go ahead and buy it, you won't be disappointed...!!!


Great sound. Awesome CD!
This is a great CD full of great tunes and fantastic players!!. I bought it after hearing it on the radio. I really dig it!

Excellent music! Makes you want to dance - which if you're in your car is dangerous! :)
I would have liked a little less of the vocals but I'm not complaining.
