"The Cuban Jazz All stars Shine Brightly"

Bassist Charles Flores was absolutely frightening as was world-renowned drummer Horacio " EL negro" Hernandez. Mix in Puerto Ricans - reedman Miguel Zenon and percussionist Giovanni Hidalgo and the heated climate on stage surpassed that of the equator. Trumpeter Michael Rodriguez and Pianist Elio Villafranca exercised grand moments of fluid improvisation and precise ensemble work. if you were contemplating bringing back a memorable highlight from the hill encapsulating the pinnacle of artistry heard over the weekend - THIS WAS IT !
