AllMusic Review by

Keyboardist/composer Gonzalo Grau and his group La Clave Secreta earned a Grammy nomination for Best Tropical Latin Album with FRUTERO MODERNO, which mixes Afro-Cuban styles like salsa and timba with subtle hints of funk and R&B, crafting a new stylistic paradigm that honors its roots while pointing the way forward. Throughout the album, Grau's sophisticated, jazz-schooled harmonic sensibilities achieve a perfect sonic frisson when they interact with the percolating polyrhythms that energize each tune.
