Scott Martin has a new CD 'Cafe Cubano' available through this website featuring original compositions by Scott Martin and guitarist Rick White. Scott's friend/mentor Poncho Sanchez came in to play Congas, Bongos, Bells and Claves on the CD. Joey Deleon lends his fantastic Conga chops on 7 of the 9 tunes. 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.
