Sugarcane Suite

‘Encendido’( track ‘2’ dell’ album ) è un brano di LatinJazz/Salsa che può dimostrarsi ‘vincente’ in discoteca. Partendo da una base di Latin Jazz il pezzo contiene alcuni stacchi molto carichi di Salsa dai vocalisti Edgardo Cambon e Orlando Torriente , accompagnati da un’ ottima orchestra tra cui spiccano – nel brano – il percussionista Karl Perazzo e il trombettista Randy Recker. La tromba e’ di grande qualita’ va’ pero’ sottolineato che viene suonata in stile jazzato ( soft ) e non in quello tipico della salsa molto piu’ incisivo.
I rimanenti dieci brani spaziano nel jazz influenzato dalle musiche di Trinidad e Brasile : Soca,Samba, Calypso etc.
