Pianist Frank Emilio Flynn has recorded, albeit infrequently, in combo settings, and has interpreted the music of Cuban classicist Ernesto Lecuona. For this one he pulls out the entire Afro-Cuban arsenal of rhythms and son stylings. He features a good mix of clave, rhumba, descarga, romantico, and Latin-based pieces with a flair that is not as frantic as Eddie Palmieri or Chucho Valdes, but is easily as literate and skilled. Among the nine musicians are the great percussionists Tata Guines and Changuito, wooden flute player Joaquin Gavilan, bassist William Rubalcaba, two violinists, and two singers.
