AllMusic Review by

Pianist Hilton Ruiz is heard with a superior group of musicians adept at playing both bebop and Latin jazz. With a front line of trumpeter Charlie Sepulveda, David Sanchez on tenor and trombonist Papo Vazquez in addition to four percussionists, Ruiz's nonet displays plenty of fire on a set of originals, Pérez Prado's "Mambo Numero Cinco" and John Coltrane's "Impressions."
