AllMusic Review by

Here's another tough one to locate. Fajardo, one of Cuba's greatest flutists, is based in Miami, but this was recorded in NYC with mostly New York musicians. Whatever, he's a superlative player, and this is classic charanga, fire and filigree, with Alfredo de la Fe among others in the team. A 1980 recording, it's available again -- unlike Fajardo's earlier work.
