AllMusic Review by

Recent release by Messidor of the still-dynamic Ray Barretto heading a group for a live New York concert. He ranks alongside Mongo Santamaria for consistency, staying power, and impact in both Latin and jazz circles, and his conga playing and presence drive a band like almost no other.
