AllMusic Review by

Altoist Paquito D'Rivera teams up with trumpeter Claudio Roditi on a live sextet date also featuring keyboardist Carlos Franzetti, bassist Steve Bailey, drummer Ignaccio Berroa and percussionist Daniel Ponce. The material (mostly group originals) is pretty obscure but the pieces serve as fine vehicles for the very complementary horns of the explorative D'Rivera and the comparatively mellow Roditi. This is high quality Afro-Cuban jazz that makes one regret that Columbia has yet to reissue their Paquito D'Rivera LPs on CD.
