This is a band of master musicians. All these cats have impressive resumes and incredible chops. It was two evenings of great music mixing swinging Cuban salsa with jazz like solos, including Craig Handy, well known and fantastic jazz sax player from NYC area, Tito Carrillo jazz trumpet professor at University of Illinois near Chicago, Sean Billings who used to play with Celia Cruz's West Coast Band as well as with Jazz on the Latin Side (great latin jazz big band from LA), Coky García who played with Opus 13 in the 1990's and plays with Issac Delgado and others, Osmany Paredes playing timbaos in his sleep and some amazing solos (he's truly one of the great piano players on the scene today) who plays with many jazz groups in the NYC area as well as his own group, Alberto (based in Toronto) and Adonis (based in LA) singing great vocals who both have their own groups, El Nengue playing some strong and creative congas, Sawa Pérez holding down the bottom - he also plays with Chuchito Valdés and Chalo y Su Ache and many others and of course the imcomparable Orlando Maraca Valle one of the great flute players, composers and arrangers in the world today. Maraca will be playing at the Monterey Jazz Festival on September 19 and 20, 2008, with an all star jazz group doing some original music composed by Maraca.

High school student, Elena Pinderhughes sat in with Maraca exchanging flute riffs with the master. I can guarantee you will be hearing from this talented young lady in the future.

If this band comes near you do not miss the opportunity to see them.
