CD Ernesto Vega Evega3small Venir al Mundo - (Cinquillo/Colibri) Released 2008

There is so much excellent Jazz coming out of Cuba now that it would be foolhardy to attempt to rank the best albums. That being said, this one belongs somewhere in the top ten for the past decade. This writer considers it a must-have due to the innovative compositions as well as the performance quality.
