AllMusic Review by

This is a collection of country dance music I recorded in Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Haiti and the Dominican Republic, with lead instruments as different as harmonica, accordion, fiddle and guitar. Despite its variety, this music all sprang from the same general roots. And that unity-in-diversity beneath the exhilaratingly multifarious sounds of the Caribbean is the underlying theme.
