AllMusic Review by

As the title suggests, Jazz Caliente collects contemporary Cuban jazz, which incorporates elements of Spanish, African and Caribbean music into jazz's already eclectic idiom. Sultry, spicy examples of this music come from Havana nightclub stars like Chucho Valdes & Irakere ("Los Ojos de Pepa," "Estela va a Estallar") , NG La Banda ("Abriendo el Ciclo," "Tormenta Africana") and pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba ("Regreso Feliz," "Mambo Influenciado").
