Steve Guasch Y Su Orquesta Nueva Era

Siguiendo La Tradicion
CD (Salsaneo 821), Released 2006;
Editor's Pick:
It’s hard not to love an orchestra swinging along with a baritone saxophone holding down the horns. The band, based in Washington State, and lead by the percussionist Steve Guasch, moves between salsa dura and Afro Caribbean versions of jazz standards, including Miles Davis’ Solar, the standard My Favorite Things and others. They’re rearranged, with Solar losing its changes in a montuno for a while until the solos start. Ray Vega shows up for two solos, and the guests include Paoli Mejias and Junior Medina on timbales. It rocks.
Highly Recommended. (Peter Watrous, 2006-01-23)
