AllMusic Review by

Recorded in Habana, Cuba, 1979, HABANA JAM 2 is truly an all-star affair. Jazz legends such as drummer Tony Williams, guitarist John McLaughlin, saxophonists Dexter Gordon, Arthur Blythe, and Stan Getz, and fusion pioneers Weather Report join Latin jazz icons Paquito D’Rivera, Irakere, and the Cuban Percussion Ensemble for a genre-blending adventure. With taut, polyrhythmic salsa grooves abutting classic bop stylings, HABANA JAM 2 consists of “descargas” (long jams) that include “Tin Tin Deo,” “Polka Dots and Moonbeams,” and “Sound for Sore Ears.”
