Reviews:
"Chucho Valdes is a superb soloist. He's got technical skill, originality and spontaneity. There are several solo CDs out. One is a clinic on Afro-Cuban music, in another he plays music by traditional Cuban composers. In yet another he plays in a jazz mood. If you prefer Afro-Cuban then this is the one to have." (Raul Fernandez 98/99 Catalog)
"Of all the recordings on which Chucho has played (350 is a conservative estimate) this is the one that he considers most significant and most representative of his style. The sounds of blues, mainstream jazz, Afro-Cuban rhythm and both Cuban and Western European classical music permeate this beautiful album. Let no one think that his versatility is mere facile eclecticism; Chucho’s virtuosity never gets in the way of swing, sabor Cubano and his own poetic sensibility." (David M. Carp 98/99 Catalog)
"One of the most inspired recordings of the eighties. You don't need tumbadoras--or a band for that matter--to make Afro-Cuban jazz. For Chucho, a grand piano will do nicely. Warning: prolonged exposure to this CD can induce a state of euphoria." (Nat Chediak 96/97 Catalog)
"Stepping away from Irakere, this talented pianist shows different sides of his own personality and training. Jazzy on some tracks, traditional in others, he gets his inspiration from the Orishas of the Lucumi, the mambos of his Cuba and the modern jazz influence of the States." (Nancy Rodriguez 94/95 Catalog)
